Email Writing Tip #1: Avoid the Robot Greeting
It shouldn’t be news to learn that the very first thing you should do, when writing an email, is to greet the recipient. You would be surprised how many folks get this wrong, all the time.
Email Writing Tip #2: Don’t Rush into Writing
Now just because you’ve greeted the recipient does not mean you should rush into writing. Take some time to think before writing. Always remember that every e-mail sent out in your name counts and reflects the professional backbone of your business.
Email Writing Tip #3: Present the Meat of the E-mail

Email Writing Tip #6: Don’t Rush to Push the Send Button
Check for grammatical errors, wrong spellings, lines in the email that needs the reader’s eyes, links that needs to be added etc.
Also take a second look at the subject of your email to make sure it delivers at first hand the content of your email.
