Writing emails is more than just a fast way to send a message across but it’s an art. On a day to day basis we send emails to colleagues and clients. There are times though that there is urgen need for a quick response. However due to busy schedules your email just might be pushed back. Here are 7 ways to write an email that your contacts will respond to.
1) Write a short, precise descriptive subject line that notifies the recipient what the email is about.
2) Get straight to the point in the opening lines about what is required of the recipient.
3) Use simple language that explains the entire subject of your email.
4) When stating statistics, use numerals instead of words.
5) Keep the email as short as possible and highlight that if the individual has further questions they can get hold of you.
6) Use bullet points or numbered lists whenever possible to ensure that the email is short. Bullet points also maintain the eeader’s attention span.
7) Give your contact or the recipient of the email a reason to respond to your email. You do this by adding ‘because’ when addressing your subject matter.
