I recently came across an excellent article in Inc. by Geoffrey James about writing effective emails. Lawyers have not traditionally been known for economy of language, but that is a skill we all must hone and put to use if we want to get results from digital communication.
The Geoffrey presents six practical and clear steps that can help anyone to craft email messages that are direct and unambiguous, and which attract prompt and useful responses.
I encourage you to read it, and to put the six steps to use in your future emails. Geoffrey’s suggestions may require a bit of thought and planning at first, but the benefits are likely to become apparent immediately – and soon this method of writing emails will become second nature.
I found the points about creating effective subject lines to be particularly useful.
I welcome your response to this or any of my posts.
