Business Email Etiquette
5 quick and easy email tips for entrepreneurs:
• Looks matter
Formatting your emails in a professional manner will score brownie points with your clients.
• Run a business, not an acquaintanceship
Respond to email requests promptly. I typically respond to emails within 2-3 hours of receipt.
• Emotions have no place in business
Avoid using emotionally based words. Business is business and feelings aren’t of the essence.
• Emoticons were created for a reason
Write clearly and to the point. The reader should immediately pick up on your tone.
• Explanations go a long way
Your clients will be more attentive to buy if you fully explain the answers to their questions.
