According to recent reports by Sendmail and the Radicati Group; the average person using email for business receives and sends over 100 emails a day, and 64% of people have sent or received an email that caused unintended anger or confusion. Demonstrating that writing clear, professional emails is extremely important to your business, and in life. By writing clearly, you'll become known as someone who knows what they want and who gets things done. Both of these are good for your business, and career.
So what does it take to write clear, concise, and professional emails?
Always indicate the purpose of your email in clear words so you can save yourself and the recipient from wasting time. Whenever you write, write about one thing at a time; it’s better to include less in emails than just stuffing it with unnecessary material. You can also try to take an emphatic view of your email and its interpretation, by developing “soft skills”. When you write emails, think about your words from the reader's point of view, try adding a word or sentence of thanks- in general a friendly approach is best. Since you’re writing on professional terms, you can add your signature, title and contact information at end (rather than bragging about yourself in the lengthy intro!) if you’re writing someone for the first time. Always remember to keep the structure simple and precise as possible by using short sentences, words or even paragraphs, limiting to five sentences.
Last but not the least; use active voice and proofread your email for corrections and redundant expressions. Need more assistance?
