I’m always thinking about ways to help people send email that’s more effective. My latest idea is AAAAA email.
A – Accurate subject line (not outdated, not too general)
A – Action is requested near the beginning (not at the end)
A – Accessible information (not buried in thick paragraphs)
A – Answers reader questions (doesn’t leave out essentials)
A – Any attachment is actually attached!
Why not try posting the five A’s on your computer? Before clicking SEND, check to be sure your message deserves an AAAAA rating.
