Email Etiquette Training Tips
Email Etiquette Training Tip #1
Use a greeting… Say Hello. Avoid being seen as bossy or rude – especially when you don't mean to be. The easiest solution to sound professional and helpful is to be polite. What would be the first think you would say to them if you were telephoning them or walking into their office? Do that!
Use the same etiquette tip when you close your email. Sign off by saying Good-bye or Thanks or Sincerely.
Email Training Tip #2
Use 5 – 8 words in your subject line. Most business people receive hundreds of messages a day – so help them prioritize if the are going to open and read your message.
A good subject line that tells the person what your message is about and will help you get yours noticed and answered.
Email Training Tip #3
Mark Twain said, “I didn't have time to write a short letter, so I wrote a long one instead.” Well – the same holds for email.
To be brief AND effective takes a bit of time and thought. You have to think about what your reader knows (in advance), and needs, so, you have to choose your words carefully.
When you take an extra minute you will likely be saving your reader many minutes – and you reduce the risk of them misunderstanding your message. To bottom line your message takes a little more effort but your productivity and professional reputation will be better for it.
Email Training Tip #4
Write a Cover Message When Forwarding Messages
Nobody wants a long email thread forwarded to him or her without any context. People are busy – so make their work easier not more complicated. Do them a favor and protect / build your personal brand reputation by writing a short summary (and why they should care / act), before forwarding.
Email Training Tip #5
Do Not Always Use ‘Reply All’
Before you hit ‘Reply All’ ask yourself if everybody needs to be included. If the answer is no, then don’t fill up other peoples inbox. You will be saving them time (even if they don't know), and protecting your personal and professional reputation because the fewer messages they receive, the happier they will be.
Email Training Tip #6
Add White Space To Your Email
If your message has only 2 sentences you are fine. I find if I am stringing together more than 4 or more sentences, it is time to add white space by breaking the message into 2 paragraphs and grouping similar information into paragraphs.
When you add white space to any business writing you make your message much easier to read, understand and reference in the future.
