Overall evaluation notes
You indicated that you did not understand what I was selling and repeated that three times. A strategy for dealing with submissions like mine is to assume you know that I am selling a service or product. Tell the client that this is an assumption you needed to make, although the target audience for the submission may not make the same assumption. Then comment on the success or failure of using this pitch to promote my service or product.
Also, note that you can comment on this evaluation to address any of the issues that I have raised.

You indicated that you did not understand what I was selling and repeated that three times. A strategy for dealing with submissions like mine is to assume you know what I am selling a service and then comment on the success or failure of using this pitch to promote my service or product. It is hard to say that a series of sentences that repeat themselves, or that have one word in them lacks clarity, but it does.
|Applicable information to this type of material in general||20%||x 1||
There was almost no useful information in this review. There was no advice on how to clarify the service/product being sold, where the grammar errors where, or how the tag line fit into the submission.
|Relevant to specific submission||10%||x 2||
This was a review without specifics. What was it that you did not understand? Was it the service, the market, the parties involved? Also, what tag line are you referring to -- I did not know the submission included any part of my tag line?
|Executable - is advice actionable and gives some idea of what to do next and possibly how to do it||10%||x 4||
There is nothing actionable in the review. There were no how-tos, specific recommendations, or directions on where to go to fix the issues you felt needed addressing.
