Write an Informal Business Email or Letter in English

In a world of digital communication, we don't write letters very often. Most of our daily communications are via email or phone.

Since we write fewer letters in business nowadays, we tend to use them only for the most important messages, which means that it is more important than ever to be able to write an effective professional email in English.

Follow our tips below to make your next informal email.

Tips for writing informal email

Here are some tips for writing informal business letters or emails, examples:

  1. The date is at the top left or right of the page.
  2. The comma after the name is not obligatory, and if you write something after the name, you must put the comma (,).
  3. Greetings are an important part of the message. Choosing the right greetings depends on whether you know the person you are writing to and how formal your relationship is.
  4. The letter ends with "Take care, Cheers, Yours, Love", then put the comma, then your name.
  5. For the date, in American English, the month first, then the day, then the year, but in British English, the day first, then the month, then the year.

Example of writing an informal email

An informal email can be written almost any way you choose, but there are some organizational guidelines you can follow if you're not sure what to write or how to format your email. Example:

2nd May
Dear Adam, ......
