Bad E-mail Habits: What Message Are You Sending?
Each time you click "send," the e-mail being delivered says a lot about you and your organization. Are you practicing appropriate e-mail etiquette, or are your e-mails conveying messages that are hurting your reputation and credibility?
Over the past decade, technology has become increasingly prevalent in our day-to-day lives, but how many of us have ever learned appropriate techniques for online business communication? Very few online users have been provided any formal training, basic guidance or education on proper practices for online business activities, including e-mail etiquette.
More and more businesses are discovering the importance of establishing specific corporate guidelines regarding e-mail practices. There is an assumed informality surrounding e-mail usage, but e-mail is no different than any other form of business communication. Your contacts form opinions about you and your business based on your e-mail communications and how you use technology. Improper e-mail usage can give someone the perception that you lack education, have limited experience with technology or lack credibility. Mastering your e-mail skills can go a long way toward forging the most professional image you can with potential clients, existing customers and anyone else you communicate with via e-mail.
