Sure. Anyone can write an email in the business world today. But can you write ones that increase your chances of a fast response and that build your professional image?
I’ve been conducting business writing workshops in both the private and public sectors for over 15 years, and I’ve listened to the concerns of both senior managers and support staff when it comes to written communications. And the most common complaint today is poorly written emails.
By taking this 90-minute course, you will learn with all sorts of tips for writing powerful, business emails. I’ve divided the course into three sections: What You Should Know About Emails, Writing Style and Tone, and Organization.
The good majority of this course is a lesson in good manners, i.e. how not to be annoying, how not to insult the reader, how to not be rude, how to be professional, etc while writing emails. Well the instructor must of skipped the class that taught all these principals when it comes to real life or non email communication since she's sucking on candy the entire time which makes me want to reach through the screen and rip it out of her mouth.. Don't speak or instruct while sucking, it's annoying as H*LL!
I'm new in my management position and want to start off sounding confident and informative in my emails, Found this course short, easy to follow and full of the information I needed to write effective emails. Thank you
I would recommend this course to new professionals entering the work force as well as students. The introduction courses are pretty self explanatory but the tone, word choices, and set up of the email message tips were certainly helpful. I was able to identity and relate my own faults while taking this course.
This Course is very helpful and gives you a lot of tips to writing effective emails. highly suggested
I am a newbie to office routine and this course just made me a PRO! I now only need to practice practice practice! I truly enjoyed the course. It covered everything that could be said about Effective Email writing skills. Great investment. Thank you!
