How To Write Professional Emails
« on: October 16, 2019, 08:26:01 AM »
Set Up Email Templates (Canned Responses)
Creating email templates is a great way to save time for those that often get the same questions or comments via email. Take a day to set up canned responses and you will no longer have to write the same replies ten times a day. Both Gmail and Outlook have this feature, which will help you save time and automate your email for free.

Hereís how to set up professional email templates in Gmail in just a few clicks:

After logging in to your account, click the gear icon and select Settings.
Then go to Advanced and click Enable next to the Templates option. Scroll down to the bottom of the page to save the changes.

Now you can start working on your own email templates. Type the text you want to save into a new email. Then click three vertical dots at the bottom-right and choose Templates to save your draft as template.

You can create templates for responses that contain long paragraphs as well as quick 2-3 sentence replies. Youíll be surprised at how much time those will save you in the future.

Networking Emails

In case your problem isnít using the email templates but creating them, give Networking Emails a shot. Itís a web tool with dozens of email templates that can help you grow your professional network.

Created by Resume Worded, Networking Emails is a great resource for optimizing your communication. Some examples of the templates they offer include cold/warm introductions, following up with a non-responder, and even writing thank you notes.

Each template also comes with useful tips and suggestions that can further improve your communication with the recipient.

You can use the search button or browse through the list to find the right email. Then all thatís left to do is copy-paste it into your message box and change a few details.

Word Counter Plus

If youíre someone who writes more than 10 emails a day, itís essential to keep some of them short and sweet. So if you often end up with emails that are way too long, you might want to consider using a word counter tool to stop yourself. A Chrome extension Word Counter Plus can do the job for you.

Highlight the text in your email and get the number of words and characters you used in one click. Then you can proceed to either continue writing your email or wrap it up before it becomes a two-parter.


You can find many great tools that can help you write better and thus cut down the time you spend proofreading and rewriting your emails. DraftMap is one of them. Think Grammarly or Hemingway, plus it also checks for unnecessary word repetition and helps you stick to one writing style.

This Chrome extension gives you real-time suggestions on your writing that are color-coded. It will help you avoid using passive voice, typos, cliches, as well as advice on your emailís readability. All suggestions are based on Ernest Hemingwayís rules of writing. DraftMap is especially handy as all the processes happen right inside your email composition box.

Donít worry if you still have highlighted words after youíre finished editing your email. The recipient wonít see the colors, the suggestions are only visible to you.

Your Email Could Be Better

Your Email Could Be Better is an online tool designed to reduce the time you spend managing emails by educating everyone on the best email practices.

When composing a professional email you follow certain rules. Like making sure your message has a clear subject line or leaving out unnecessary attachments. Youíll be surprised by how often people break these rules, which ultimately results with both parties spending more time and effort.

Your Email Could Be Better has a list of 10 common faults. Each of the points comes with an explanation and examples of how to better your email. This can come in handy in case youíd like to tell your colleagues about those rules but donít know how to do it. You can either use your own words or send them a link to Your Email Could Be Better to illustrate your point.

We all wish our email became entirely automated and didnít require any attention at all. While thatís not exactly possible today, every little helps. Whether itís cutting down your email length or timing yourself when youíre writing, once you establish some rules youíll notice your first improvements.

If you just canít stop writing long time-consuming emails, maybe itís time to give up email completely. Try using your Customer Relationship Manager (CRM) or Slack to exchange messages with your coworkers instead. If nothing else, itíll help you spend less time on email.
