2.9 Effective Writing in Business

Course Overview

While it’s true that technology is one of the primary mediums of communication and that hand-written letters are nearly obsolete, writing is still an extremely important tool for sending and receiving communications. Now, however, writing is typically done through email, text messaging, and social media rather than physical pieces of paper. In business, writing is not only used to correspond with co-workers and clients but also in marketing and sales efforts as well. Given that it’s so heavily used, it’s even more important to use proper writing techniques today than it was 100 years ago!
