Email sign-offs: What your email sign-off is really saying when you write: 'Sincerely'
Here’s what your email sign-off is really saying when you write "Sincerely"
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 - "Sincerely"
Bates: Tried and true for a formal business close, and you'll never offend anyone.
Kerr: A bit too formal for e-mail. This salutation can put people off. People really expect this in a letter, not an e-mail.
