How To Sound More Educated In Emails

Email is one of our most popular forms of communication, and it comes with words you should probably not communicate.

Whether in the office or not email is a common way to get in touch with coworkers or customers. It’s fast, easy, and leaves a record in case anything comes into question. But as is the case with anything, your choice of words can make a difference. So, to help you out, Ladders.com has a list of thirteen terms you should stop using in your emails.

For example, drop the phrase, “I hope you’re well.” This is a very common way to begin an email and is intended to show you care about whoever is reading it. However, it’s not your job to come across as caring and could backfire with the wrong person.

Something else to drop: cliches. People use them to deflect from their request because they feel bad asking for things. But cliches are not original so try something more personal.

For more email traps, check out the original article now. Or just keep it simple.
