Email is as ubiquitous as it is easy to mess up. In a world flooded by digital communication, bad email etiquette can be lethal. Luckily, Uplers has helpfully identified and expounded on the most common email etiquette faux pas. The first enemy of good communication is being too casual. Starting an email with a simple “hey” may be common, but it isn’t the best way to start off the conversation. Avoid fake praise, jargon, ambiguity, and typos too. Be clear and concise, and don’t reply all if it’s not necessary. This way, you won’t overwhelm your recipient, and they will be more likely to read your message. Proper grammar and consideration of your recipient’s time are also key to building healthy communication habits. Follow these tips, and you’ll be well on the way to being an email ace.
