How to write a business Email

Our times are fast. Our life is fast. Allrepparttar time we're in a rush for something, using faster and faster means, leaving behind everything that seems to slow us down, sometimes even proven principles of proper, polite behaviour or proper, professional business principles.

Most ofrepparttar 117790 people coming torepparttar 117791 Net expect riches. Fast. Now. Andrepparttar 117792 Hype tries to make them believe it and pursue get-rich-quick schemes without thinking, without proper work, without discipline, without ethic. Business Ethic. Writing Ethic.

And online business is based on writing. So, in allrepparttar 117793 rush, Email bathes inrepparttar 117794 full sun of attention of allrepparttar 117795 people online. It complies withrepparttar 117796 requirements: it's fast, can be automated, it has a vast reach, everyone praises it:repparttar 117797 professionals andrepparttar 117798 Hype in a unity. What'srepparttar 117799 problem then?

No doubt, Email is a powerful tool, but as with allrepparttar 117800 tools, it is necessary to know how to use it to getrepparttar 117801 best possible results.

Anyone should never forget that Email substitutes a business letter, a professional business letter in our online life. Any business presence has its strict laws if it should be successful, and no one will argue that allrepparttar 117802 people want to succeed in their online business.

How is it then they believe that without a proper business correspondence, ie a proper business presence inrepparttar 117803 market, they can succeed. The point is that they CANNOT.

Let's stop for a minute and reviserepparttar 117804 basic writing rules of an old-fashioned, good business letter (- if you try hard you will remember - that piece of paper in an envelope that we still sometimes get in our offline life :-)).

An Email of a proper netpreneur should haverepparttar 117805 same features. Yes, I said 'features', though we should never stress features. But everyone must feel them within us, and then we can dare to talk about benefits. So we will talk about features now.

In a single introductory sentence I will say that a written language has its laws that must NOT be broken. I usedrepparttar 117806 word 'language', not slang, not individual words or exclammations. And a proper professional, business Email should be written in a proper, polite, business language in proper formatting and contain:

1) Proper Greeting - it's not 'Hey' or 'Hi Guy's', it's not even: 'Got a shock'. And not even: 'I've got to tell you this!!!' Take out one ofrepparttar 117807 old-fashioned physical business letters and compare it to some ofrepparttar 117808 emails you get. And think: Who would it be to do business with? Would you dare to send an offline business letter starting with a greeting like that? And more: would you expectrepparttar 117809 person to respond, to do business with you, a customer to buy from you? I'm sure you answered: No. I'm glad you did.

2) Proper opening sentence - It's none ofrepparttar 117810 above though you get emails opened exactly that way. If you write to a stranger you should tell him who you are and why you're writing. Don't tell a novel torepparttar 117811 person - just a sentence. A full sentence. Not isolated two, three words.

The other day I received an email from one of my bankers - yes, one ofrepparttar 117812 cold bankers, andrepparttar 117813 opening started:

'Dear Mrs W, I wish you a beautiful day.'

And then he continuedrepparttar 117814 usual way. I loved it. And it's definitely notrepparttar 117815 only way to go.

3) A para or more, saying more aboutrepparttar 117816 matter, statingrepparttar 117817 facts - briefly, politely, clearly, soberly and torepparttar 117818 point: a polite request or any proper business reason you have for writing torepparttar 117819 person - in proper sentences, starting in a capital letter atrepparttar 117820 first word and ending in a full stop afterrepparttar 117821 last one. You should realise that people get hundreds of emails daily, and if you want yours to be read and what more: answered, it must be a proper business letter, not spam.

Survivor...the show goes something along these lines. They take a group of people and place them in remote destinations. Then we wait and see who forms partnerships...and who double crosses who (whom?). What if someone dropped you off inrepparttar middle ofrepparttar 117789 Internet (where would that be anyway?) and you had 30 days to make a profit, what would you do?

Well, that's exactlyrepparttar 117790 situation one faces when they decide to pursue an Internet venture. This is where many become infected withrepparttar 117791 deadly virus...'get-richous-quickitis'. When infected, you become susceptible torepparttar 117792 'dark side' of Internet marketing. You begin practicingrepparttar 117793 dark arts...bulk email (spam), FFA link pages, and safe-lists (opt-in spam) just to name a few. Is there any cure for this disease? Yes!

The first thing people should (or eventually will) realize is thatrepparttar 117794 Internet itself is not a business, just a business tool. Arguablyrepparttar 117795 most powerful tool invented...but nevertheless just a tool. What this means is thatrepparttar 117796 rules of business have not changed, justrepparttar 117797 way they're implemented.

Now, as for our 30 day challenge, I would consider forming a joint venture with an ezine editor. I would try to getrepparttar 117798 editor to endorse my product/service. Doing so enables you to side step one ofrepparttar 117799 hardest obstacles of Internet marketing...TRUST! I have come to believe that this is probably THE most important ingredient in your marketing cookbook. You may be able to writerepparttar 117800 most compelling ad copy and createrepparttar 117801 most functionally and beautifully designed site that could be done by humans (excluding get-rich-quick artists, of course...they ARE superhumans:)
