When writing or speaking in a new language, we are often tempted to use larger, fancier words to demonstrate our intelligence and mastery of vocabulary.
In business, however, it is often far more productive and profitable to focus on clear and concise wording. In the business world, many issues are time-sensitive, and the sooner a point can be fully communicated to others, the better. Here are some tips to help you improve your business writing:
- Know your audience
- Clear message
- Avoid clichés and jargons
- Keep it tight and simple
Remember, it is important to know multiple ways to communicate the same point, and which situations call for which methods of phrasing, depending on the audience as well.
We invite you to take advantage of our Business Writing course.
