5 Tips for Writing Emails That Will Get Responses

You’ve asked for the information over, and over, and over. But your emails go unanswered — or you get the wrong (or incomplete) information. It can be incredibly frustrating, not to mention a waste of time as you craft additional follow-up emails that, once again, are ignored.

Here are five tips you can use to get people to read — and respond to your emails:

Navigate the article

#1 Be specific about what you want

Your request may seem clear to you, but your reader may not be as familiar with what you need.

#2 Make it easy to read

Try a bulleted list of the items you need and their corresponding due dates.

#3 Make it easy to respond

  • Include a hyperlink so they don’t have to look it up.
  • Ask them to “Hit ‘Reply’ then type your answer in the subject line.”
  • Ask them to “forward” items to you as opposed to re-creating them.
