    advantage/benefit

    Tell me whether my sentence is faultless.
    It would be to our advantage/benefit if we followed his advice.

    Instead of advantage or benefit do you know of another word I can use in this sentence.
    Thanks for your help.

    Ragan, there are other ways to say it. Here are a few examples using different words:

    It would be in our favor if we followed his advice.
    It would be in our best interest if we followed his advice.
    It would profit us if we followed his advice.

    Also to note, you can use "to follow his advice" instead of "if we followed his advice."

    Cheers,
    Greg
