Business Writing

Power of Email Short Course

Why are emails so important in business?

- Emails get the job done virtually instantaneously in most cases - there is little time wasted as would be the case in trying to phone or send a fax/letter.

- They tend to cover more routine issues and are commonly used for everyday communication between work colleagues and business contacts. 

- They can also form a convenient and effective "paper trail" of your dealings with colleagues, suppliers and business associates. 


How will emails make my job easier and me better at doing my job?

- Emails are quick and efficient and put all the relevant parties in touch simultaneously - and yet can be easily personalised for one-on-one interactions.

- Emails can be used as a tool to track and monitor progress of outstanding tasks - both for you and those people you are managing.

- And every email is date stamped so you can see who is behind schedule - and take corrective action timeously.


How do I write better business emails?

- Emails should be brief, clear and unambiguous - so as to avoid misunderstandings.

- Business emails must never be used to discuss personal issues as their careless use can cause much damage to your business - and your reputation. 

- Emails must be tactful and written so the reader does not take offence. 

- Stick to the essentials and the topic of the email - and discuss only one topic per email.
