Do’s and Don’ts for effective email-writing

In a world where our inboxes are constantly flooded with emails, how can you make sure your message stands out?

The answer lies in “effective email writing.”
Whether you’re crafting an email for an interview, pitching a new idea, or connecting with colleagues, how you compose your email can make all the difference.

Here are some practical do’s and don’ts to elevate your email communication:

➝ Using personal information or quirky email addresses.
➝ Sending an email without a clear objective.
➝ Making your message excessively lengthy.
➝ Engaging in unnecessary small talk or pleasantries.
➝ Ending your email without giving clear instructions for the next steps.

➝ Use a professional email address that includes your name or business name.
➝ Clearly define the outcome you want to achieve.
➝ Create a personalized subject line with proper grammar and action-oriented language.
➝ Begin your email with a friendly greeting and a concise statement of your email’s purpose.
➝ Present relevant details using brief sentences and paragraphs.
➝ Offer a clear next step for the recipient, such as scheduling a call or meeting.
➝ Use polite closings like “Best regards” or “Thank you.”
