Business Writing Basics

Communication

Overview: 

The ability to write a good business letter is as important as dressing appropriately for work: both reflect who you are. In fact, your business contacts may know you only through your written correspondence. A clear, concise business letter reflects well on you and your organization. Good business writing communicates exactly what you mean to say in a way that the reader will understand; a well-written letter, memo, or email will help you get the results you want.
