Email beginnings and endings are the biggest challenges for people. So I wrote about them in the latest issue of Better Writing at Work. This post is excerpted from that issue.
The last sentence of an email is like the last words of a phone call. They may be a quick signoff or a courteous close, depending on the formality of the communication.
- See you in Montreal!
- Have a great trip!
- I will email you in August to schedule lunch.
- Please call me with any questions.
- Thanks again for all your help with the artwork.
- Thank you for your business. We appreciate the opportunity to serve you.
