It’s always good to have a second set of eyeballs on most anything you do.
Recently I created a detailed .pdf on how to use a .pdf as lead capture.
And yes, the meta of it all made me giddy!
I originally put the .pdf in my regular media folder and was delivering it via the “thank you” page. I changed my mind and sent the link to the download in the email ‘thank you’ instead. (you can read all about why in that post)
Fickle me, I changed my mind yet again and put it in a special download folder I created on my server. This way I could update the .pdf as I wished and it would always have the same URL.
What I forgot to do was change the download URL I was sending via email. Doh!
Luckily, my client Sarah sent me an email…
I quickly fixed the problem and thanked her. Thank you Sarah!
BTW: She also asked meso I just linked to her site to show her.
But here’s the thing.
No matter how smart you think you are, no matter how routine something is for you, it’s always a good thing to have someone check your work. Always.
I do this all the time. I read a bunch of posts in my feedreader and sometimes catch mistakes. When that happens I try to give the author a heads up (privately). If you have a blog, I’d love to add it to my feedreader as well. If I see something, I’ll tell you*.
*typically I spot spelling and grammatical errors and don’t usually check links. But if you need link checking I’ve written about a link checking plugin before, and there’s always a browser extension like Check My Links (which I also use).
But hey, nobody is perfetc, right? If you see something amiss, please say something. Together we can make the internet a better place. 🙂
