E-mails are a major means for professional business communication. If written poorly, you may injure a business relationship, lose the recipient’s respect, and potentially get yourself in some legal or professional hot water. If written well, they can help you achieve your desired objectives and earn, or keep, the respect of others. Giving e-mails more forethought improves their quality and increases the chance of timely and helpful responses. We will address e-mail content, wording, format, etiquette, and cautions, as well as the value of e-mail agreements.
