Business Writing Tip

Business Writing Tips


I always advise my business writing clients to remember - -


Before you start writing, ask and answer this question:   Who is the intended audience?  Be specific enough that you can picture the audience in your mind.  A deliberate answer to this question establishes many of the criteria for your writing project.  It serves as a basic guidepost for the writing process.


A related inquiry is:  aside from the intended audience, who may see this?  I.e., whose desk might it cross, intentionally or not.  Consider this part of the audience as well.


If your audience is fractured, you may want to consider writing different versions of the document for those different audience groups.
