34Always start a conversation with a greeting.And use a comma when directly addressing someone.Example: “Hi, Lucy.” and not “Hi Lucy.”SEO Pug says: Few people use the rules of direct address.
35Always close with a proper sign-off.Thanks and cheers come to mind – as in “Thanks, Marvin!” and not “Thanks Marvin!”This will depend on the person and your relationship.
36Only write as much as you have to.A phone call can often save time.Some of us (ahem) are guilty of writing long emails.
37Break longer emails into paragraphs.It’s easier to read and digest this format.You wouldn’t read an article that’s one long paragraph, would you?
38If action is required, state that early on.And put it in the subject line, if necessary.
39Double check the “To” and “Cc” fields!Especially when you reply, because how many of us have hit “Reply to All” by accident?And how about that time you sent an email to the wrong Susan?SEO Pug says: Wrong Susan wasn’t very happy about that.
