There is nothing more embarrassing than realizing you sent an e-mail to the wrong person, replied to all with a private comment or had some obvious grammatical errors. We’ve all done it. Chances are, more than once! Here are some of my most memorable examples:
-Copied a prewritten e-mail and accidentally clicked send without changing the name.
-Forwarded a prewritten e-mail, forgot it was open, typed a message to someone and clicked send not realizing that it wasn’t a blank e-mail.
-Sent someone a blank reply.
Ok, you get my drift. We learn from our mistakes, but will we ever really stop making them? I’d say probably not, but there are ways to prevent these and other epic e-mail fails.
Do you remember your English teachers? How about what you were thinking about when they were droning on and on about apostrophes, action verbs, or who vs. whom? No? Well you’re definitely not the only one. In fact, The Training Factor has just the refresher course we need!
‘It Takes More Than Spell Check’ will help you identify and fix the most common grammatical errors. This isn’t just for e-mails folks. You could be missing job opportunities and promotions just because you used “your” when you should have used “you’re”. What are you waiting for? Click the link above and take that course!
