These last few days we’ve been getting a lot of questions from you guys about email closings, be it professional or personal. The feedback from our replies has been so good that we decided to make this guide about it to expand on the subject in a quick and simple way.
After a perfectly written email you need a perfectly written ending, consider it a rule. A badly thought out ending to your text could ruin an otherwise great write up. This is exactly what we want you to avoid.
If you’ve read our previous guides about how to write a follow up email or how to write a cover letter, you have a head-start on this subject as you already know the fundamental keys that apply to any sort of writing you do. Make sure to head over there to learn the essential steps about the whole email/letter writing process, as this will all be about the ending.
Firstly, we need to divide this into two different sections, professional (formal) and personal (informal).
The type of ending for each one is to be handled in a very different manner, obviously, as you are better off not saying “Cheerio!” to your boss and your mother wouldn’t like it very much for you to sign off on her with a “Very truly yours”.
So, in order to make it simple and to avoid any possible mix up, we have created two articles dedicated to each of the types of email closings.
Follow us on to the next steps of this guide, simply pick the type you need:
