10 New Ways to Intro Your Email

  • email intros fb

 

Dear Fill-in-the-Name, 

This is to inform you that the above is the commonest email (and letter) opening in history. It's the safe choice ... but don't expect your reader to stay awake. 

 

If it's just a courtesy note, you don't need it to instigate immediate attention or action. But in a business setting, you quite often do. Try one of these 10 options for making a more memorable connection: 

 

1. Hi, Fill-in-the-Name 

Creates an informal conversation with people you know well. 

 

2. Good morning/afternoon 

Somewhat more formal. Also a good dodge if you don't know the name or gender of the person you're emailing. 

 

3. Just got your email 

Tells the recipient that you are making him/her your top priority. 

 

4. Here's the info you requested 

Gets high readership because it's something the recipient wants to know about. 

 

5. I have an update/news for you 

Communicates that the email contains must-see information. 

 

6Checking in 

For routine progress reports, or a tactful way to request one from others. 

 

7. Important/urgent/code blue/SOS 

Save this for occasions when you seriously need immediate attention or assistance.  

 

8. Mission accomplished 

Announces that your project or task is completed, the company's goal has been met, etc. 

 

9. Greetings and salutations 

A bit humorous, for when you want to get someone in a good mood. 

 

10. First, let me apologize 

For that email we all have to write sooner or later, to explain your mistake and proposed damage control.

Now Is the Time to Expand Your Skillsets
  Why should you do it now? Several reasons.   First, the obvious one: the sooner you acquire valuable skills, the sooner you can be making more money.   Second, there's a major skills shortage in the job market right now. Employers simply can't find enough workers for their open jobs. It's caused by a number of social factors, including: The Baby Boomer generation leaving the workforce and not enough people in later generations to fill all the gaps The cost of a college degree skyrocketing out of reach for the vast majority of the population The speed with which businesses have transformed their operations in the digital world   Last but not least, Integrity associates now have access to Next Step U (in partnership with leading online education institution, Penn Foster) for completely free educational programs. You've got nothing to lose, and a lot to gain!   What skills are in the highest demand by employers? You may have heard that the shortages are mostly...

Teleworking for COVID-19 and Beyond
  The current pandemic didn't start this trend, but it has definitely accelerated it. Even before COVID-19 came on the horizon, Gallup research showed that 43% of U.S. employees work remotely some or all of the time. And some predictions have the traditional 9-to-5 job being pretty much history by 2030.   Now, thousands of businesses all over the world — beginning with the financial centers in Shanghai and Hong Kong — have practically shuttered their physical offices and converted to the new virtual reality of remote workers.   Here's how to join what Time Magazine calls the "World's Largest Work-from-Home Experiment" with minimal friction and maximum productivity.
