Grammarly Business Review 2021 (Premium vs. Business)

If you asked me to list the top 3 grammar checker tools, Grammarly is definitely top there. In this Grammarly Business review, I will share a brief overview of Grammarly Business plan features and a comparison of Grammarly Premium vs. Business.

Introduction

Grammarly is one of the best grammar checker tools. It is probably best when it comes to proofreading tools. Some notable features are:

  • Plagiarism checking
  • Synonyms and Definitions suggestion
  • AI Writing Assistant
  • Phrasal prediction
  • Tone detector

I have already written a review on Grammarly before. In this Grammarly Business review, I will focus on the Business plan features and more.

What is Grammarly Business?

In a previous article, I shared differences between Grammarly free and paid. However, when comparing Grammarly Business vs. Premium, there are fewer differences. Grammarly Business is a pricing tier of Grammarly paid plans. Therefore, as a paid user, you will have all professional grammar checking features if you subscribed to the premium plan or business plan.

You will receive more features particularly related to team collaboration in the Business plan. That is what I am going to dive into in this Grammarly Business review.

Common Features of Grammarly Premium and Business

As a subscriber of Grammarly, you will get access to these features:

  1. Advanced grammar checking features
  2. Plagiarism checker
  3. Synonyms and definitions checker
  4. Select the English language type – Options are American, British, Canadian, and Australian English.
  5. Enable writing suggestions to sound more fluent in English
  6. Suggestions (from improving readability to flagging missing Oxford/serial commas)
  7. Monthly report via email

You can find all features and whatnot in this Grammarly premium review.

Snippets is another very useful (and time-saving) feature inside Grammarly. Let’s say you are emailing a lot. Chances are, you will send very similar subject lines and even body text to many recipients. Despite writing all content uniquely, how about letting Grammarly save your writing snippets and use them when necessary?

Another use-case of Grammarly’s Snippets tool is saving answers for frequently asked questions about your product or service and using when necessary in email support and live chat support via tools like Intercom and Gist.

That is what Grammarly’s Snippets do, and the use-cases and benefits are diverse! Snippets is a Grammarly Business exclusive feature. So, if you want to use it, you will have to use the Business plan, not the Premium.

Is Grammarly Business better than Premium?

Grammarly Business is built for teams to ensure their communication and writing are professional and precise. On the other hand, Grammarly Premium is not equipped with team management, Analytics Dashboard (even though you get weekly reports via email), Style Guides, Brand tones, and Snippets.

Essentially, Grammarly Business plan provides a seamless experience for businesses engaged in Support, Sales, and Marketing. The Premium plan or the free plan is best for single users.

Grammarly Business Pricing

Grammarly Business Pricing is based on the number of collaborators or team members in your organization. The more people in your organization, the cost would be higher even though Grammarly sliding discounts (10% OFF) for larger teams.

If your organization has three members, it would cost $25 per user on monthly payments or $12.50 on the annual pay. Save 50% when subscribing to the annual plan.

Grammarly Business has a 149 user cap. If you want more team members, you will have to contact them and ask for a custom quota plan.

Its Enterprise plan is equipped with an Unlimited number of team members, Bulk user management, and Domain authorization.

Also, Grammarly provides special discounts for large business entities, non-profit organizations, and educational bodies.

Assuming your organization’s team does not change, you can reduce the Grammarly Business cost by paying annually instead of monthly.
