IN SIX STEPS
AVOID EMAIL OVERLOAD
Make sure your email is necessary.
WRITE A COMPELLING SUBJECT LINE
Your subject line should grab the reader's attention and summarize your message.
Keep sentences short and to the point. Use only a few, brief paragraphs.
Be polite. Address your reader appropriately. Avoid emoticons, informal jargon, and/or abbreviations.
CHECK YOUR TONE
Choose your words carefully. Think about how your email feels. If the message could be misinterpreted, rephrase it.
Check for spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors before sending email.
