Often people have a real challenge when it comes to putting the finishing touches on their writing. Ignoring the importance of punctuating sentences correctly is unfortunate as it diminishes the quality of the final product.
Well punctuated writing is like a well dressed person. It presents a positive image. Taking the time to punctuate your work tells the reader that you know your topic and that you care.
Higher grades for you!
If you are writing for school, knowing how to punctuate your work will make it easier for the teacher or professor to read and understand your writing.
Not only does well-written work make a teacher's job easier, it also proves that you understood the topic and that you were able to prove it.
Let the benefits to you roll in!

Business can proceed more smoothly when all participants understand what they are supposed to do or what the next step will be.

Proposals to other businesses will be more impressive if punctuated well.
It is unlikely that anyone will pat you on the back for a well placed semicolon; however, if he or she can easily read and comprehend your proposal, report, or other business writing, that is the goal. Never underestimate the power of punctuation to make texts much more powerful and influential.
