Are you constantly sending e-mails and wondering why people rarely respond? If most of your work involves interacting with people throw e-mails that you must know how to write e-mails that get answered, which means, your recipients respond to them. Now the response could be negative or positive, so that too you have to consider while formulating your e-mail.
First of all keep your e-mail short and crisp and don’t be ambiguous especially in the subject line. It helps a lot if you recipient can clearly see from whom he or she is getting the e-mail; sometimes just an obscure e-mail at this appears in the From section of the e-mail.
Don’t use lots of words just to convey a single message; don’t read around the bush and come to the point straightaway, preferably in your subject line. Consider people receiving your e-mail as intelligent beings. They are simply going to hit the delete button if you go on and on without saying what you mean to say.
