Since email communications are very popular, people need more tips to know how to best utilize the tool. I’ve taught people to use email applications and included basic etiquette only as a side bar on specific topics. However, I am now seeing so many poorly developed emails being sent as business communications. I now realize email etiquette is becoming more important as the use of this tool increases. As a fellow professional sending email, I feel the need to encourage better etiquette.
Stay away from jargon. That is to say, words that may mean something to those in a certain job field but mean nothing to the rest of us. Legal and medical terms are good examples. Not many outside those fields understand them. Again, use simple concise wording that anyone can understand.
So armed with the concept for a fantastic company, some suggestions that will help you work your lifelong desire of having a business are listed below.
. Prepare your advertising and marketing strategies. You may have an extremely sellable product, but with poor advertising, you wouldnt encounter the increased growth your company can accomplish.

I’m not suggesting that you act like a five-year-old when it comes to a business ask. In Methods of Teaching Business Communication you have to be a little more subtle than “It would be so awesome to have a new Lego Star Wars.” But the persistence kids have when it comes to asking for what they want is a good lesson about one of the secrets to the successful ask.
Do get to the point. Be concise. No one wants to read a long email. If you’ve got a lot to say, send a memo, letter, or provide details in an attachments or web link using full URL.
Twitter can be a key component of the other types of marketing you should be doing for your website. Too many businesses look to Twitter as its savior. Twitter can get your articles out to people. However, if you are not publishing the right time of day, it’s not nearly as effective. Also, Twitter cannot take the place of effective back linking, article and video publishing.
Twitter can be a great business tool, and Twitters terms and conditions allow for business use, but if you cross the line and use it a a spam machine, instead of a valuable business communication tool, you are at a high risk of losing your account.
