8. Highlightrepparttar 109646 specific action you wantrepparttar 109647 recipient to take atrepparttar 109648 end of your message. Few things are more frustrating than reading a long email message only to get torepparttar 109649 end and not be clear on whatrepparttar 109650 sender wants from you.

9. Read your message out loud before you hitrepparttar 109651 send button. Keeprepparttar 109652 tone of your message professional while atrepparttar 109653 same time adding bits and pieces of your personality. Given that deleted emails are never really deleted, never put something in an email message that you would not want to see onrepparttar 109654 Local News. Also, never say anything in an email message that you would not say torepparttar 109655 recipient's face. You should not hide behind an email to deliver a difficult message. Pick uprepparttar 109656 phone.

10. When all else fails, pick uprepparttar 109657 phone. If you find yourself exchanging email with a person 3 or 4 times in order to clear up a single issue,repparttar 109658 time had come to pick uprepparttar 109659 phone. Email is supposed to make communicating easier, not more frustrating. It is amazing how a 10-minute call can clear uprepparttar 109660 confusion that a 3-page email created.

Bonus Tip If you have a short message to send, put it inrepparttar 109661 subject line, this will completely eliminaterepparttar 109662 need forrepparttar 109663 recipient to openrepparttar 109664 email.

It was perfect! // SUE In this example,repparttar 109666 subject line containsrepparttar 109667 greeting,repparttar 109668 message, andrepparttar 109669 closing. It is self-contained and its obvious torepparttar 109670 receiver that your total message is inrepparttar 109671 subject. This format is great for sending people a quick Thank You note.
