Writing clear and concise emails is a critical skill for success in today’s working world. There are several key items to consider when composing a business email. You should be able to convey your message in a tone and style as though the recipient is in the room standing next to you. Your style should not be too formal and stilted, though it should also not be too relaxed and casual. Learn how to achieve the proper tone, known as “business friendly,” which is the happy medium between formal and informal. You must next consider your objective in sending the e-mail. Are you seeking further information on a matter, or are you answering a question the recipient may have had?
