Each and every one of us daily receives tens of e-letters a day, and sends as many himself. No one, however, wants their email to be ignored and left without a response. Sometimes, what matters about that are the final words in the message.
Traditionally, we finish our emails by “Thank you”, “Greetings”, or something of the kind.
The Boomerang Company, which has developed popular applications for creative emails, has published the most commonly used phrases that are used in the end of electronic messages.
According to their calculations, the ones that are replied to most often are ended by”Thank you in advance”, the LifeHacker website wrote.
Research shows that such a closing guarantees 65,7% security of receiving a response, With the presence of “Best wishes” the percentage is much lower – 51,2%.
People from the company point that it matters how the phrase “Thank you” is used. If only it is present, the certainty for getting an answer is greater. Complex combinations of words for gratitude make significantly smaller impression.
