Ever notice how you carefully craft an email and the receiver doesn’t actually answer your question or doesn’t know the details you provided?  Well,  face it, in this world of tweets and texts, an email is, well, just too much.

Here’s some ideas to craft more successful emails (anyone have other GREAT tips?)

The SUBJECT for the email should let the receiver know when a response is needed

USE FIRST LINE in email to let people know is you require something or what is most important- add explanations and background later.

CAPITALIZE important words to communicate.

BOLD important concepts – or things that the reader can scan and get most of the understanding from the email.

KEEP EMAILS SHORT, a few lines — if you have a long drawn out email — you might consider calling the receiver to confirm they get all the info.

PUT A LINE SPACE between each idea or thought….a huge long paragraph will be completely ignored.

My thought for the day!

About Linda D

The kids are grown. I am creating and living the life I love. I do miss our family dinnertime conversations, especially Honest Wednesdays, or Reality Sundays, somethin' like that, always a laugh or a cry or look into each individuals perspective and life experiences. To me, that is what FAMILY is about, sharing the joy of being connected to each other! So even when the kids live away from home, one is 630 miles away, I strive to keep connected, with love!
