As an entrepreneur, editor, và truyền bá professional, I estimate that I’ve sầu sent at least 73,000 business emails over the past twenty years. (A rather conservative sầu estimate, at that.) I’ve sầu seen many an “I hope you’re doing well” cross my inbox. I’ve sầu sent a few, too (we all vì chưng, from time lớn time!). Here are my five sầu favorite alternatives to the ubiquitous greeting.

1 Nothing at all

The gmail ứng dụng Boomerang conducted a data study & found that emails between seventy-five & one hundred words in length had the best response rates. Although the response rate diminished slowly after that, talk khổng lồ any busy person & they’ll tell you they prefer emails that are brief và get straight to lớn the point. Show that you value the recipient’s time by getting down to lớn business right from the start.

2 Something personal

In my work as an editor, I’ve had people follow me on Twitter or Facebook, commenting on & sharing every article I publish. And, just when I think I’ve sầu somehow earned a bạn, I’ll get a letter from them asking me to lớn accept a guest blog post or vì chưng some sort of cross-promotional nội dung swap. I have to admit, I admire their dedication to lớn getting lớn know me, even if it comes with an ulterior motive. And if they pitch something that reflects the knowledge they’ve sầu gained about my style & the topics I care about, it’s more likely to be something I can use.

If you’re writing a high-stakes gmail that needs to get results, it never hurts to lớn vày your homework. You don’t have to stalk someone on social truyền thông, but doing a little research can go a long way. Include a sentence or two at the opening of your gmail to show you’re familiar with the recipient’s work, lượt thích this:


I read your article about in last week. You hit the nail on the head when you said . . .

There are a couple of caveats here. First, don’t use a personalized opener unless it actually relates to lớn the topic you’re writing about. It would be awkward khổng lồ congratulate someone on the publication of their recent novel if you were writing lớn offer them a deal on life insurance. (Unless maybe they write murder mysteries. There may be a hook there.) And also, don’t make your message too personal. Saying you read an article is one thing, but mentioning the beach vacation photos you saw on Instagram will come off as creepy.

3 “I know you’re swamped, so I’ll be brief.”

I love this opener. It, & the number of paragraphs in the email I see before me, tells me that the sender values my time & made an effort to lớn keep things short và sweet.

There’s just one rule with this opener—if you’re going to use it, you’d better actually be brief. Don’t promise to keep it brief và then go on for paragraph after paragraph. The sender may wonder whether you actually know the definition of brief.

4 “We met at ______.”

If you’ve met the recipient before, it never hurts lớn say so. Perhaps you connected briefly at a conference. Even if the recipient seems unlikely to lớn remember, the fact that you did remember goes a long way toward establishing a rapport.

Once again, this approach works best if your previous meeting is relevant lớn the topic at hvà. If you met at a conference và exchanged words about sale strategies, và you’re emailing now khổng lồ ask the recipient to Đánh Giá your new ứng dụng for marketers, you’re connecting the right dots. That won’t be the case, however, if you’ve only bumped inlớn each other in a coffee siêu thị & exchanged some small talk about the weather.

5 A bit of small talk

If you really think a small talk opener fits your audience best, give sầu it a whirl. But if you’re looking for an alternative lớn “I hope all is well,” or “I hope you’re doing well,” consider something a little more personal:


How are things in New York? I hope you’re keeping cool during the heat wave sầu.

The more familiar you are with the recipient, even if you know each other only through tin nhắn exchanges, the better this works.

In my opinion, the most important rule of gmail communication is this: don’t force it. If you’re trying too hard to be personable or clever, your recipient will almost always see through your attempts. When I write an tin nhắn, even if it’s for a mass emailing campaign, I’m always thinking of my intended recipient and their persomãng cầu. I smile as I write (seriously, it’s a little creepy) & write as though I’m having a face-to-face conversation with them.
