Sure... think about what your time is worth on an hourly basis and is that the best use of your time to look for mistakes like that.

Good morning Gary. It would be a good way to teach kids about customer service and receiving a reward for good results.

 Before we publish anything, Gary, everybody in the office normally proof reads  the article 2 or 3 times  in order to catch typos and grammatical errors. Occasionally, I will get an email from someone here in the rain telling me the error of my ways. I thank them and make the correction. I would not be opposed to paying a dollar or two.

I'm a constant mistake maker.  It would cost me lots of couple of dollars.

That is an awesome idea!  I had a mistake in my newsletter that three people completely missed for a few months and one of my friends pointed it out to me.

 

I'm likely to pass on it now, but I may take you up on it in the future.

There are people here who will email me immediately if I make a typo and I do the same for them. I am not against having help if it is worth the money because I am a Realtor not a writer.

Sounds like an excellent idea. I offered the job to one of my kids once and no takers...they claimed it was too much work.

It always seems like a good idea to proof-read your profile or any other page you have on the Internet. Having mistakes, tells consumers that you don't check your work and poses the question, what else do you make mistakes on?

Not at this time. I simply ask people to let me know when/if they see issues and that works just fine. Maybe I'm cheap? My wife is pretty good at finding things and letting me know, which I appreciate

I make too many mistakes to pay a dollar but I have thought of having client's kids read my website pages and run a contest for finding the most mistakes and offering some kind of reward for each mistake found.

Gary, how old is the kid you are referring to here.  Would the kid be supervised while correcting said errors?

I always stop by kids at lemonade  stands ( I never drink it, Shhhhh )I love that they are getting out there and doing it. If I had something to send to your kids I would / will , but it doesn't come up in my life.
