Editor’s Note: As a personal development editor, my first thoughts—I hate to admit it—on Grammarly were that it’s a service that’s irrelevant to people in my industry. I viewed it as a glorified version of traditional spell-check. But, boy, let me tell you how wrong I was.
Of course, I’ve always used Microsoft Word’s spell-check and grammar functions when proofing my writing. It’s a nice tool to use if any misspellings slip through the cracks.
As someone who eagerly assumed a writing career, I never thought to use any other resource until one of the interns told me about Grammarly. Grammarly checks grammar and punctuation, catches run-on sentences, offers suggestions for clarity and conciseness—and yes, it spellchecks.
Unlike most spell-checks, the features don't stop there. Grammarly’s ToneAI can help elevate your writing voice, general tone, and overall confidence.
Here are three reasons I’m thoroughly enjoying my Grammarly Premium subscription:
Communicate without complications
Grammarly is super easy to use. After just a few clicks, you can download Grammarly’s desktop app and access Grammarly's writing suggestions via sites like Gmail, LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, and most of your favorite desktop apps.
Pro tip: When a green G appears in the lower right corner of the text field, that means you’re all set. Although only basic writing suggestions will appear inline, clicking the green G allows you to open Premium suggestions for a more robust edit.
Communicate with confidence
Not everyone starts out as a confident writer—I wasn’t at the start of my career. This is why I truly appreciate that Grammarly identifies your tone and writing goals by analyzing word choice, phrasing, punctuation, and capitalization. Grammarly knows that tone is the key to every form of writing—particularly in conveying a sense of confidence.
One of Grammarly’s best aspects is that its ToneAI ensures your emails come across as:
- Confident—Grammarly’s ToneAI provides suggestions that help your writing appear more confident when expressing solutions or pitching new ideas.
- Personality—Grammarly’s ToneAI ensures that whatever you write is approachable and collaborative and helps build trust with lasting connections.
- Purposeful—Grammarly’s Positive Framing ToneAI proposes sentence rewrites focusing on the solution rather than the problem.
Communicate without breaking the bank
Grammarly is truly accessible at only $11.97 monthly for a Premium subscription (annual plans bring greater savings).
