How using this program can hurt your business

You may be using this program for your marketing right now. You should stop. It’s called Word and it’s really not meant to create marketing materials. It’s a word processor. (Hence the reason it’s called Word.) Use it to send your designer all the content she needs to produce beautiful materials but please don’t use it to make those materials yourself.

It just says amateur, hobbyist, side hustle. If you are serious about your business, and I know you are, then hire someone who will take those word documents and rework them in a professional design program like Adobe InDesign. You won’t be sorry once you see the difference!
