Email Etiquette- A guide to writing more effective emails

Every professional today needs to communicate via email, but not everyone knows how to do it right. When writing an email, you walk a thin line between formal and informal. The technology allows for a more casual tone and immediate conversation,which causes many people to take it lightly, and use it in ways that are wholly inappropriate. This guide will help you figure out what to avoid to save your reputation, as well as help you write more effective emails.

Emails can be casual in tone, but they are a formal means of communication. Like the business casual dress code, emails can come off as too cold or “too serious” if you don’t add a bit of warmth. However, they are a pretty “serious” business. Almost all employers monitor and keep record of your official emails, and email-related firing is not uncommon. Email is a piece of legal document admissible in court, and your email habits can leave you open to the risk of lawsuits. For these reasons and more, it is very important to follow proper email etiquettes in every email you send.
