Issue 5 of Email for a reason
Some basic tips on having a task performed
- Be clear and straight about what is to be done. Don’t sugarcoat or beat around the bush. (If it’s a sensitive issue, talk in person instead.)
- If there is a deadline, state it.
- If the task can or is expected to be delegated, make sure all the necessary info is in the email.
Subject: Visitor stats for the campaign site Jan-Jun
Can you get me the visitor stats for the campaign site for Jan-Jun this year?
Preferably in Excel, so I can sort and filter.
I need it by Wednesday evening.
