How to save time when writing workplace emails

EmailsEmails are an essential part of the working day.  Yet their ease of use can also be a source of frustration, especially if emails start to go back and forth.

One email can take up more time than you had planned. All of that effort that went into writing the initial email can feel wasted if you then have to spend time clarifying what you meant or chasing up people because they hadn't carried out the tasks that you needed them to do.

It can take your focus away from your other tasks and priorities. But if some of your tasks are reliant on your reader taking action from reading your email, then that can mean more work for you if they don't complete those tasks.

What can you do to ensure that your email is read, understood and actioned? Effective email writing follows a process.

Without a process, the content of emails can go in different directions and can be confusing for the reader, resulting in no action, which is frustrating for you, the writer.

You have important information that you need to share. So how can you do it in an efficient way that doesn't overwhelm and confuse your reader? You follow a process.

Introducing the Email Efficiencies Self-Study Course.

This self-study course provides a step-by-step process that enables you to efficiently write clear and concise emails that help your reader to understand what you want them to do.

Here's why this course is so important today

Now, more than ever before, the ability to write effective emails is an essential part of running a business. No matter your role – business owner, manager or team member – emails reflect the professionalism of both the business and the individuals within the business. Whether you're writing to clients, team members or senior management, the ability to express yourself clearly and concisely reflects well on you and the business.

A well-constructed email adds credibility to you as a professional. A poorly-constructed one detracts from it.

And with the number of emails that are read and written in a day, it's important to be able to write clear and concise emails quickly.

The course has been developed with busy professionals in mind. It's delivered in three stages.

What you will learn

Stage 1 – Determining the best approach for your email

TimeTime-saving techniques to plan your email

The ease of sending emails gives the impression that they must also be easy to write. Yet this ease is also what makes it difficult to ensure your emails are clear to your readers. For that reason, it's important to plan what you're going to write.

The term, 'planning', seems to be associated with a formal structure that takes a lot of time. In actual fact, it can take very little time when using a clear process. You'll learn this process and be able to immediately experience its benefits when applying it to the writing of your emails.

How your reader determines your approach to your email

The beauty of emails is that they can instantaneously be sent to more than one person. Yet this can also be a problem if it is a diverse audience. Learn how you can address this diversity so that you can compose an email that doesn't confuse and is understood by your readers. 

Techniques to prioritise your information so it makes sense to your reader

You have important information to share that you want your readers to understand and in turn take action – whether it's to sign off on a project or start following the company's new procedures. Bombarding an email with too much information and no clear direction usually results in inaction and more follow up work for you. Learn how to determine the relevant information and prioritise it so that it makes sense to your reader.

    Stage 2 – Composing your email

    Why you should self-check your choice of words so that your message is clear

    During a working day, it can become second nature to use industry-specific language. It's important that you don't make assumptions, especially if some of your audience members are from outside of your industry. Learn techniques to check if you're using appropriate language so that no matter who reads your email it won't sound like gobbledygook.

    Why it's important to use your reader's language so that you can use it to your advantage

    There are certain types of words that people relate to better than other words. The advantage of emails means that more than one person may read your email which also brings the challenge of how to connect with your audience using their preferred language. Learn about the different types of preferences and how you can apply this knowledge to connect with your audience, whether it's one person or 100.

    How to structure your sentences so that they are easily understood

    Pieces of the puzzleIf you want you reader to take action there is a greater chance that this will happen if you use the active voice. Quite often people don't realise that this simple tweak to their writing can help their readers to clearly understand the intent of the email.

    Find out the difference between the active and passive voice and when best to use each. Learn how to easily convert a passive sentence to an active one for better results with your emails

    Determining the best way to set out your email

    Some emails need to be longer than a couple of paragraphs. How do you put your email together so that your reader doesn't feel overwhelmed by it? Find out how readers read a longer email so that they can understand the essential points from it.

    Learn how you can set out your email so that you provide all of the relevant information in a way that is easy for your reader to digest and action.

    How to write subject lines so that your email is noticed

    When writing emails, the writing of subject lines is often overlooked as an important part of the email. Most readers scan subject lines to determine whether emails are worth opening. Your subject line can be a barrier or a door-opener to your email being read. Learn the components of a subject line that help to get your email opened and read.

      Stage 3 – Best practice techniques before pressing Send

      Checklist of tasksThe 3-step process to quickly review your email when you have no time

      "There's just not enough time in a day." This is a common reason given when it comes to reviewing emails before pressing Send. With the number of emails that you write in a day, it may be tempting not to check the 'less important' ones. Yet every email represents you as a professional and you never know when your email may be forwarded.

      Learn simple techniques that you can quickly apply to your emails so that you're showing your best self every time.

      Understanding the uniqueness of emails

      Emails have become an essential part of our working lives. So it's easy to forget about their uniqueness and hence the special considerations that apply to them. Find out ways to check that you present your message in the best possible way that enhances your professionalism.

      Where to begin?

      'But why' factor

      The convenience of a self-paced course is that you can complete it at your own pace and at your best time. But what about when you have questions? I call it the 'but why' factor. You've worked through a module and then have a question about it that applies to your specific situation. This is where you can ask me those questions through the online portal.

      Why Communication Fails eBook
