Email sign-offs: What your email sign-off is really saying when you write "Cheers"
Here’s what your email sign-off is really saying when you write "Cheers"
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 - "Cheers"
Bates: Only use this sign-off for friends and business colleagues you might meet for coffee.
Kerr: You can use this with someone you know well, but if you're trying to make a business impression, this is not a great way to say goodbye when you're first doing business with someone. Save it for after having established a bond.
