Since the volume of email cannot be reduced, it is vital that email communications be made better.
Princeton, New Jersey (PRWEB) October 22, 2013
With more than four billion users worldwide, email is a fast, actionable and environmentally friendly form of communications for both business and personal use. Netiquette IQ A Comprehensive Guide to Improve, Enhance and Add Power to Your Email enables email users to evaluate email communications and reduce the all-too-common misunderstandings that plague the Web. How many of a sender's emails are opened and read? Are they putting their best points forward? Netiquette IQ offers guidance to write clear, readable email; empowers job interview results and maximizes the number of resumes viewed by prospective employers. The book provides a means to incorporate a sense of process to one's email and encourages and promotes better relationships whether they be personal, social or professional.
Written by technology sales and marketing professional Paul Babicki, Netiquette IQ is the Elements of Style of the Information Age, providing a foundation so that everyone is on the same virtual page. Are emoticons acceptable in emails? Is there a limit to the numbers of emails one should send? Netiquette IQ spells out many scenarios. As email is the default method for business communications, all email writers need to be confident that their messages are being received when –and how—they intend them to be. Since the volume of email cannot be reduced, it is vital that email communications be made better. Babicki explains, “Contrast the effects of Netiquette “health” with children’s health. Allowing poor netiquette is as though one is allowing children to eat high-fat food and sugar drinks morning, noon, and night. Bad habits can have the same impact on communication skills as early smoking can on lifelong health.”
Readers receive the definitive position on simple format rules, text options, punctuation, epolicy, email threads, tone, and much more. Pertinent information on how to respond to emails, and when not to respond to them is clearly detailed. Babicki includes a list of “dangerous” emails, as well as ten basic guidelines for acceptable email etiquette, and clarifies issues like plagiarism and privacy. There is also a complimentary blog and webpage which includes a Netiquette test so that any person can have their email “IQ” measured. Following the suggestions in the book will improve almost anyone's rating.
