EMAIL WRITING

We spend SO MUCH time writing emails. What if I told you a simple mail formula could get you faster replies? Less to-ing and fro-ing? Get people to do the things you ask and do it fast? Get you more YESes? This shit really is some kind of magic (well it’s actually neuroscience, but you know).

About the Email Writing Course

Sick of wasting time chasing up unanswered emails?

Sick of explaining over the phone things you already said in an email?

Sick of long, drawn out email conversations where people keep asking questions you feel you’ve already answered?

Some of us spend up to 75% of our workday emailing.  It’s usually an incredibly inefficient use of our time.

But following some simple principles to structure an email can

  • ensure your emails actually get read!
  • get your key messages across almost instantly
  • get quick responses
  • get the answers and actions you’re looking for
  • ultimately, SAVE YOU TIME

And, people will love working with you—you’ll get a reputation for being efficient, friendly but no nonsense, and easy to work with.

What we’ll cover

This course has an emphasis on the practical to make sure you leave able to apply the skills immediately. In other words, you’ll LEARN and PRACTICE:

^

How to structure an email to fit its purpose

^

The subtleties of tone in business writing

How to grab your reader’s attention without gimmicks

^

How to be direct but not blunt

Email etiquette

You’ll get tools, principles, and processes to use every time you write an email.  We’ll use scenarios to practice, then you’ll review and redevelop your own emails.  If you have a need for customisable standard email structures, we can guide you through constructing those, too.

FAQ

Things you’ll want to know.

This is really the full training package.

I pride myself on things running smoothly and making your life easier. Once you book with me, we take care of the rest of the process. All you need to do is tell me where and when to show up (and organise some food for your people if you want to).  I’ll do the rest.

Who’s the course for?

This course is for anyone who writes emails, for any reasonI can cater to mixed needs within a group – no worries.

Where is the course held?

I come to you. So we can do this at your office or an external venue. Just let me know where and when to show up and I’m there! I’ll pass my travel costs on to your organisation (one night of accommodation for each training day outside of Hamilton, NZ).

How long is a full training day?

Usually we go from 9am to 4pm, but I’m hapy to work around what works for your people. My only real need is that I can access the venue an hour before we start, so everything’s super-organised and impressive before your people arrive.

How many can attend?

Up to 12 people is ideal. I don’t mind if you only have 5 or 6. But once we get over 12 people, the course slows down, and time is too precious for your people to be twiddling their thumbs!

How many days is this course?

This course runs for 1 full day.That’s a significant chunk of time for your people to be out of action. You can break the day into 2 sessions on separate days to make it work best for your business needs.

How much does it cost?

All my trainings are $6,000+gst per day for groups of up to 12 people. That’s how confident I am that you’ll get stunning results. That’s how much I know that more efficient writing is worth GOLD.

  • review rating 5  Shelly came to tell what would work in the world of communication. We were a bit "ho hum" about the whole thing. However, we were not expecting to be 'wowed'. Shelly is: - Inspiring - Relevant - Current - Engaging - Common sense - Professional - Very, very, easy to understand. - And, funny. But most of all, she understood us. We're all waiting for the next installment!
