Dear readers ,today's post being taken from "David Silverman" who has authored tips of writing better e-mails.
"Given the number of emails you send every day, you should be an email-writing expert, right? In case not, here are a few tips for effective messaging:
Ask for something. All business writing includes a call to action. Before you write your email, know what you're asking of your audience.
Say it up front. Don't bury the purpose of your email in the last paragraph. Include important information in the subject line and opening sentence.
Explain. Don't assume your reader knows anything. Provide all pertinent background information and avoid elusive references.
Tell them what you think. Don't use the dreaded "Your thoughts?" without explaining your own. Express your opinion before asking your reader to do the same.
Well .......after reading the stuff I too felt the same way as you did,I mean "who wants to read all this crap....as if I dont know ,I could have easliy authored something like this and get myself listed in Harvard Business Review and why the hell does David or someone else have to tell me this as if reminding to some kindergarten kid! Huh!"
Then I paused if this wasn't so important then why would it be listed in HBR,I mean how many of us really notice these when we write an email.....and if the person sitting and reading at the other terminal doesn't understand it we trash him to be a moron.....not fair!
