Overview

Surveys show that people in corporations receive an average of 175 messages per day. Topping the list is e-mail, surpassing voice mail, faxes, and telephone messages as the most frequent type of message received.

While e-mail is the biggest communication tool for business use, its remote nature-which eliminates tone of voice and body language-presents a huge potential for misunderstanding and misinterpretation. Many people find themselves dealing with dozens of e-mails every day whose impact has been lost in cyberspace and, as a result, frequently miss the mark.

E-mail In An Instant helps readers to gain mastery over their electronic mail box and be more effective at getting their messages across with style and impact as well as managing and responding to the messages they receive. The book shows everyone from corporate executives to stay-at-home moms how to improve their e-mail efficiency by:

• Accelerating your workday by knowing what to send and what not to
• Assessing your e-mail writing style
• Adopting time management for your mailbox
• Learning to separate the trivial from the important
• Learning how to say no, e-mail style
• Writing business e-mails for other cultures
