We all use it everyday. We love it, we hate it. Most of us use at work and in our personal life (I say most because I do know the rare person who only uses it at work! WHAT!) and complain about it everyday. But, it’s part of our life and for better or worse it’s here to stay (at least for the moment).
Now knowing all that, ask yourself this: Do I really know how to communicate effectively through email?
Most of us are going to say, “Hell yes, I’m an email rockstar!” And you might very well be right but I’m pretty sure I could give you some pointers that take your digital communications to the next level.
5 rules for effective Email Netiquette:
1. For Gods sake don’t write in all CAPS
2. Use CC and BCC carefully. Think of other peoples privacy
3. Do you really need to fill it with Emoticons???
4. Use an appropriate tone for your receptor
5. Don’t assume the receptor will understand your message
Just remember that we all receive loads of emails and half of them are crap and waste our time.
A little bit Netiquette goes a long way.
