Lesson 1: Why Business Writing Is Great For Your Business
Learning how to write good business letters is crucial for your business to succeed—this can make or break whether or not people want to do business with you. In business, it’s crucial to know what you want to say and to be able to deliver it in a manner that is precise without sounding rude or too demanding. Business is always a balancing of demand and supply: likewise, business writing is the art of balancing amiability with directness—for your letters, memos and notes to be effective you need to be clear but still communicate civility and a general pleasantness. Clients like to work with companies that express a sense of camaraderie and respect.
However, we understand that this can be very difficult with business matters because the exchanges are often very confusing and might at times, be very stressful. Business writing is great for your business because it ensures your clients and/or future partners that you are professional and know what you’re doing. The worst-case scenario in business writing would be to be misunderstood or to offend your prospective clients.
In today’s fast-paced modern world, there’s no longer any room to make mistakes or any time to dilly-dally and correct yourself in succeeding e-mails. These days, it’s all about getting it right the first time—business writing includes the e-mails you send to your colleagues, descriptions on your brochure or website—it can even include memos you send to your employees; they can either promote your company’s growth and enrich your progress or they can do the opposite and demotivate or offend those involved. Because of the nature of the information they present, business writing has to convey what you mean to say in as few words as you can say it in. Learning how to write good business letters could be the catalyst for your company’s growth!
