Make sure you write their name correctly, avoid misspelling or using a nickname that she / he didn't like.

Communicate with simple language and write emails like you're talking to him / her

There is no reason to write the words that are difficult to understand. Your message will be easier to understand when you use a simple language and widely used terms. Arrange the sentences as you speak and proofread your email.

Stay focused on the topic

Don't assume others will know or remember the topic of your previous conversation, provide a heads up in your mail subject or in first paragraph. You could write: "I am writing to (follow-up meeting on ..., respond to your inquiry...)" That way, the recipient will be easier to understand the purpose of the email that you send.

Create email in short paragraphs

People can get very busy. Don't clutter your email with words that are not necessary and do not make the letter longer than it should. Email paragraph that contains more than 5 lines make it harder for the reader to read.

Describe what you are asking the clearly

If you have a request for email recipients, simplify the language so that he / she understands what you want them to do specifically. You will get a better response if you say "I would appreciate it if I could talk with you by phone for 15 minutes to discuss this problem."

Use less formal afterword in your business email

A formal greetings and afterword could keep you distant from the recipient. Use a warmer or welcoming words such as 'Thank you very much', 'Have a nice day'. But don't do it when the person you emailing is a highly respected or more senior.

Create an interesting email signature

You could use a signature line that includes your name, title, telephone number, email address and other important information. And if you work in a company; enter the same business site address.

Check your spelling and punctuation

Even if your job does not require a high writing skills, you'll still be judged by the quality of your writing. Use grammar and spelling checker in Outlook or a word processor such as Microsoft Word before sending an email. And avoid using exclamation points when not needed.

Proofread your email

Always take the time to proofread what you've written and make sure all the words in the email as you want. If necessary, ask someone to read and ask what they think about your sentence.
