Email sign-offs: What your email sign-off is really saying when you write "Best"
Here’s what your email sign-off is really saying when you write "Best"
Communication experts Suzanne Bates, President and CEO of Bates Communications, Inc. and author of Speak Like a CEO: Secrets For Commanding Attention and Getting Results, and Cherie Kerr, founder of ExecuProv and author of The Bliss or "Diss" Connection? Email Etiquette For The Business Professional, give their expert insights into this aspect of email correspondence.
Sign-off - "Best"
Bates: "Best" is colloquial, but fine for someone you know. "Best wishes" or "Best regards" would be better for business.
Kerr: This is another acceptable sign-off, especially if you're using it with someone you know really well.
