Publisher Description

Every day more than 281 billion consumer and business e-mails are sent; hundreds of millions of business people are asking for the sale, for information, for collaboration, for support, and more – via email. Overwhelmed by the daily flood of emails, recipients have become very selective. Nobody wants to read me-mails (“I am soandso... I sell/produce/offer this and that... and I want/need/request...”).
Email evangelist Gisela Hausmann’s “73 Ways to Turn a Me-Mail into an E-mail” will teach you what not to write (and why) and how to rephrase, with real life examples.
Gisela Hausmann is an email evangelist, a mass media expert, and a multi-award winning author. Since 2008 she analyzed more than 110K+ emails for effectiveness and personal appeal. Her work has been featured in SUCCESS, in Entrepreneur, and on Bloomberg’s Technology podcast "Decrypted." She is also the winner of the Sparky Award 2016 “Best Subject Line.”
