Webmaster - University - LOT - E-mails - Students
As webmaster for a christian university, I send out a LOT of e-mails to prospective students, but the best tip I have is actually for personal e-mails. Greet someone personally, especially if the e-mail isn't part of an ongoing conversation chain. I'm a young, but starting with Hi or Dear isn't dead yet. The same with closing your e-mail. Close with a thanks or salutation and a personal note! The rudest e-mails to me are from people who just spit out the facts and then include "Thanks" in every e-mail they send… as part of their e-mail signature. Oh one more: When people send a thank you e-mail, try sending a "Your Welcome" type of e-mail. It shows that even when the issue has been resolved you still want to invest time in the person.
Great points. Thanks for sharing them.
