Description

You may be thinking: “Come on, it’s just an email.” And not bother much.

But you may lose opportunities (partnership, promotion, salary raise) because of mindless wording or failure to communicate concisely. 

Or even worse, you may sound indifferent, arrogant and neglectful with your readers! Remember, on the other side of the screen is an alive person (doesn’t matter a client, an investor or a colleague)! With their hopes and dreams, plans and intentions, problems and fears.

Stop writing bullshitty and boring 'please find attached' and ‘kindly be advised'‘I am writing to … ‘, ASAP, creating even bigger emotional distance between you and your readers. 

But there is a better way (I am glad I figured it out:)) on time. Let me show you how to:

  • craft easy-to-read engaging emails

  • write in conversational style with the focus on reader’s needs

  • word modernly without old-fashioned cliches, apologetic and redundant phrases

  • develop short messages by using plain expressions

  • optimise polite language

  • eliminate approval seeking behaviour

  • use power words to show confidence and commitment

  • emphasis important ideas and de-emphasizes unimportant ones

  • and much more!

The crucial factor here is your willingness to take the first step, open your mind to new experience, and become more mindful emailer!

Here's what you're going to learn:

  • a lot of life-hacks and techniques for compelling emailing

  • practical skills for writing “alive” letters

  • working tools for ’simple’, but not primitive emails 

  • understanding how the rules of business writing have changed and why 'kindly be advised’ and ‘please, find attached’ don’t work anymore

  • do’s&dont’s of emails that are worth being replied to

  • tips on how to avoid potential confusion and misunderstanding

  • upgraded ability to effectively communicate with other people.

We will also

  • outline the golden rule of business writing

  • discuss 3 corresponding key principles 

  • refine your practical skills 

  • apply ROR for business emailing 

  • come up with suggestions for revising your letters.

The course also includes strategies to 

  • engage and keep your reader’s attention

  • save time and money for you and your reader

Please, look carefully at the curriculum and watch the FREE preview videos to find out whether the content is right for you and whether you like my teaching style, as well as the manner of delivery. The course will not suit for those, who are not ready for some alternative viewpoints!

Hope you will enjoy our journey together, and I'm very excited to see you on the course. So, enrol now!
