As you #WorkFromHome, you are probably sending more #emails than ever before. Today, we share 4 things to avoid when writing (especially formal) emails:
Top tip: An email, especially with someone you do not know personally, should be approached in much the same way as a formal letter.
1. Sending an email with no subject: An ideal subject line explains the contents of your email. Think of it as the title, or topic of your email.
2. Writing incomplete sentences: Ensure that your sentences are complete and easy to read by people who cannot read your mind.
3. Sending an email with no body: The body of your email does not have to be lengthy, but use it to offer more information regarding the email subject, attachments or further directions to recipient(s).
4. Abbreviations and slangs: Tnx, LOL, BRB, TTYL may be great on SMS and social media but they have no place in formal emails. Be careful, so that these do not slip into an email.
