Author: by Marc Roche
About this Professional Email BookProfessional emails are too important to mess up. They are evidence of something that you said or did, and as such, they can be your best friend or your worst nightmare. Every day, a staggering amount of business communication takes place.
This book will help you not only write more professional business e-mails but also improve your overall business English. Know your context as well as your audience. Like everything in life, emails are not created equal. The same email can be digital gold or digital poop depending on the situation in which it’s deployed, so you must always pay attention to context.
Even if you send exactly the same email to the same audience, in a different context they will interpret your email differently, as they will approach it with a different mind-frame, together with a different set of beliefs and expectations.
When you approach an email in a business setting, the first thing to do is to decide exactly what you want from the exchange and then, what context you are writing in. Is this a close colleague but there is a not-so close colleague included into the email exchange?
