So how can you harness your email to ensure you’re delivering your message effectively? Emails that skip the pleasantriesDo you always start an email with a nice greeting and end with a pleasant sign-off? Emails that say ‘thanks in advance’You may think you’re being polite but sending your thanks ahead of time can actually come across as the opposite. Before dropping everything into an email ask yourself what am I trying to say and what does this person really need to know? Look over everything from the tone, to your choice of words, to how you’ve signed off and tailor it to suit the person you’re speaking to.
