03

Hammer Your Grammar (01:02)

Avoid being lazy and take the time to pay attention to grammatical details. It may be quicker and easier to forget about capitals or full stops when typing an email on your mobile phone but to the recipient at the other end it looks ill-educated, lazy and gives the impression that you don't really care all that much.

Opening Address (01:04)

In this video lesson you'll learn the secret to nailing the opening address of your email. Those who invest a little time researching before hitting send will bank the spoils.

The PS is Important (01:02)

In this video lesson, you'll discover how to harness the power of this highly effective, yet seldom-used email element. And no, there are no cliché movie references here!


08

To Emoticon or Not To Emoticon (00:52)

Have you found yourself writing this in a corporate email? These types of email additions might be alright if you're emailing a friend about upcoming plans, but when it comes to business, they should be avoided. They aren't professional and aren't appropriate in a work email.


09

Use Their Name (00:52)

It's easy to slip into autopilot if you spend a lot of your day writing emails. In this video lesson, you'll learn just how powerful using your recipients name can be - and how to leverage that power.


10

Walk Away First (00:46)

Losing your temper is never a great idea, and it's even less so when you leave a paper trail of your tantrum behind. If you find yourself hot under the collar at work, these tips can help preserve your work relationships.


11

Inbox Management (01:05)

When was the last time you cleaned up your inbox? It needs to be done regularly so here are a few tips.


12

Incorrect Address (00:48)

It may not happen often, but when you receive an email sent to you by accident, etiquette suggests you let the sender know of their mistake. They'll certainly appreciate it and it will minimise the chances of you being sent future email messages in error.


13

Keep an Eye on Internal Emails (01:03)

Let's Talk Signatures (01:05)

There's a lot more to email etiquette than just thoughtful writing - it also extends to your email's signature and footer. Watch this episode to learn what information you should be including at the bottom of your email.


15

Reply All (01:06)

If you've received a group email, beware of hitting the "Reply All" button – because it might do a lot worse than just "annoy all".


16

Respond Promptly (01:09)

What do you do if you receive an email that you know needs attention, but you can't action it properly for a few hours? If you can't provide a timely response or you need time to investigate something, let the sender know you've received the email and provide an estimated time frame for a response.


17

Save Save Save (00:44)

If you're writing a long email that requires a lot of attention to detail, remember, save it as a draft and save often! Treat email the same way you do important word documents by hitting 'save' regularly along the way.


18

Just Following Up (00:57)

If you haven't heard back from someone it's either because they haven't received your email or they weren't engaged enough to respond. Instead of 'just following up', try picking up the phone or sending another email with a more compelling request.


19

Attachments (01:21)

If you need to show someone a piece of work, say a photo or a document, an attachment is the perfect option. But remember, opening large documents on wireless devices, especially while overseas, can cause major headaches for the recipient, not to mention large data bills, so always keep file sizes to a minimum or provide a link.

Bin the Out of Office Emails (01:09)

Setting up an automatic ‘out of office' reply email may seem like a common courtesy, but is there a better way of managing incoming email (and senders' expectations) while you're not around?


23

Delayed Sending (01:13)

Want to level the playing field when dealing with recipients in another time zone? This video lesson will help your emails land at the top of the pile, at the exact right time your recipient is ready to read them.


24

Email or Call (01:04)

25

Reeling in a Phish (01:32)

Phishing refers to emails that trick people into giving out their personal and banking information; The people behind them are experts in manipulation. When scanning your inbox, be on the lookout for phishing email tells. Generic greetings are often a giveaway.

Do you know the difference between CC and BCC? There is a time and a place for both, so be clear about their uses and keep your email recipients happy.


27
