October 9, 2011 – Business Communication

Hey everyone, Ben here. For an assignment at University we have to blog about a chosen topic. The topic I chose to blog about is Investigating Communication in Business Organisations. With this topic I can include different methods of communication such as letters, memos and meetings. :)

For today’s entry I’m going to discuss emailing. In case you’re unfamiliar with how email works, have a quick look at this video, it’ll explain the basics.

When writing an email there’s protocol for what should and should not be included. A business email is no exception.

Using the email system “Hotmail”, I typed up a poorly written example:

A poorly written email

As you can see, the email is filled with spelling mistakes and has an innappropriate subject. It wouldn’t be a good idea to send this to “Joe Average”.

An email should be formal, with correct spelling and an appropriate subject. Like this example:

A better written email

 

The second email looks much better. Spelling is correct and the subject is appropriate.

 

I would also recommend not including personal details such as your personal life in an email or anything you don’t want anyone except the sender to read as you have no idea who could read the email.

 

Thanks for reading today, as a bonus I’ll through in a funny picture I saw on the Internet for some laughs.

 

Not a good sign…
