Cancel Grammarly

    Copywriting, blogging, and ghostwriting are just a few side hustles growing in popularity for those who love to write and want to turn their passion into a paying gig. Today, an estimated 4,882 freelance copywriters are employed in the U.S. This number is only a fraction of the total volume of copywriters out there that might be working in contract or permanent positions. 

    The field continues to grow as more and more start-ups try to push their services online, and more business owners understand the role that Search Engine Optimization (SEO) impacts their ability to find more of the right customers. Copywriters are critical to these endeavors, as they create words that are meaningful not only to the readers who might want to purchase a business’s products or services but the bots that make sure the content ranks high in Search Engine Results Pages (SERPs). Tools such as Grammarly, Hemingway App, ProWritingAid, and Readable provide copywriters with a tool that helps free their work from spelling and grammatical errors that could trip up a reader (and the bots).

    Should I Cancel My Grammarly Subscription?

    And though Grammarly is one of the most popular grammar-checking tools available for copywriters, students, teachers, and anyone who wants a well-polished piece, the fact is, the subscription cost can add up. Not only that, but many people find they need Grammarly for a short period but no longer use it. They’ve either moved on to a different program or changed course for other reasons and don’t need (or care) to check their grammar. If this applies to you, you likely want to know how to cancel Grammarly

    Subscription grammar-checking apps such as Grammarly provide various benefits for anyone who needs to write a piece and wants to ensure it is free from grammar, spelling, and other issues. Those who use these apps regularly often experience these benefits.

    • Real-time grammar and spelling correction

    • Versatile usage – install Grammarly to your Word app, paste your content into the Grammarly app, or write directly in the app

    • High level of accuracy

    • Easy-to-understand recommendations

    • Easy to use

    Grammarly Pricing: Is it worth it?

    Grammarly is a relatively inexpensive application. But despite the advantages of Grammarly, there is a lot of competition out there, and writers have their preferences. Not only that, but the free Grammarly app has much of what many writers need, meaning they can cancel their subscription for a paid service and benefit for no cost. But those dollars may seem like a waste when there is a free solution.

    59% of people in a 2015 survey indicated that improper grammar is their biggest complaint regarding the English language. And though English is not one of the most difficult languages to learn, many writers make mistakes. Those typos, whether related to spelling, word choice, or grammar, can make a piece harder to read and, even worse, may cause the reader to abandon ship.

    So though it might seem like little, for many, $12.00 per month ($144.00 annually) might be better served elsewhere, or the free Grammarly application is adequate. For this reason, cancellation of your Grammarly account might be the right step.

    How to Cancel Grammarly

    Here’s what you need to know to cancel your Grammarly account.

    • Open up the Grammarly app from your desktop.

    • On the left-hand side of the screen, select Account

    • Select Subscription

    • Select Cancel Subscription at the very bottom of the screen

    • Follow the prompts and provide any requested information about problems you have experienced with Grammarly (this helps their technical team identify potential issues)

    When your current billing cycle for your subscription comes to an end, your Grammarly account will be downgraded to the free version. You will not be charged any future payments. Further, you will not lose any data and can access any documents you create within Grammarly. This is a nice benefit provided by Grammarly, making it easier for users to cancel.
