Writing for business is not that different than writing generally, though I do think that more care must be taken in business writing because people are less forgiving and more demanding regarding business correspondence than personal correspondence.
Although there are, of course, no hard and fast rules for effective business writing, here are five tips that could make anyone a better writer:
1. Learn from the Internet.
2. Punch it up.
3. Remember that email is a business tool.
4. Don't forget your grammar.
5. Remember, writing is re-writing.
