Having worked with email for as long as I have I can honestly say I’ve seen it all. Subject lines that left me confused, made my eyes roll, or a mix of the two. The point of this articles it to clear up all that confusion so the next time you send an email to a coworker they understand exactly what you need.
5 Common Email Subject Lines To Avoid & An Alternative Option:
Alternative Option: “Requesting a Status Update on (Subject You Want An Update On).
Alternative Option: “Next Steps on (Project You’re Working On)
“Question for you”
Alternative Option: “Question for you about (Thing You Have A Question About)
“Following up on our Meeting”
Alternative Option For Sending Out Reminders: “(Date) (Topic) Meeting Follow-up Reminder: (Task or Assignment) Due Dates
Alternative Option For Just Recapping The Meeting: “(Date) (General Topic) Recapping our meeting on (Topics Discussed)
“Wanted to Check in with you”
