Writing for business is more than just giving the information to the reader. It is not what you say, but how you say it that matters to the reader. You are the artisan who uses your tool to craft the writing, and your skills to refine the piece of work – a letter or an email.
The process of writing rests on a number of principles which can help you be more efficient in the process to produce an effective document. Plan with the reader in mind to better organize and structure the information for the benefit of the reader. Develop your style to write clearly and simply with the right tone using words and expressions, sentence structure and sentence length to connect with the reader. Apply these proven techniques and see the results in your writing productivity and document quality.
