Have you ever seen those hack videos that are entertaining but the hack actually takes more time than the usual method? If you want to cut corners, it’s best to look for templates, not hacks.

With email templates, you can customize the contents in a matter of minutes — saving you time and effort. 

In this article, we’ve listed not just one business email example, but over fifty business email templates that you can reuse for your needs.

How to Write Great Business Emails in 6 Steps

Unsure how to get started on a business email? Here are six simple steps to help you construct the perfect email every time:

  • Create a subject line

Start your email by writing a good subject line. It can determine whether a client or customer opens your email. If it’s too spammy, it may even end up in the receiver’s junk mail. Summarize the contents of the email in two to eight words. 

  • Write the email. 

It’s time to write the contents of the email. Every email should have a beginning (introduction), a middle (body), and an end (conclusion). Begin by greeting the recipient. The relationship you have with the recipient will determine the greeting. Will it be formal (i.e., Dear Mr./Ms., good morning) or more casual (i.e., Hey, Hi, Hello)?  

For the body of the email, keep your message concise and to the point. Break up the text into easy-to-read paragraphs. Finally, wrap up the email with a conclusion. A good email should end with a call-to-action, which prompts the recipient to make the next move.

  • Add a signature.

The last part of the email structure is your signature, which is used to identify you as the sender of the email. As well as having your first and last name, you can add your company logo, your telephone number, or other contact information.

To find out more about email signatures, read our guide to creating a professional email signature.

  • Check yourself. 

Before you send off the email, double-check the contents and scan the text for grammar or spelling mistakes. Use a spelling and grammar checking tool, like Grammarly, just to be sure you haven’t missed anything.

  • Add recipient(s). 

Enter the email address of the recipients at the end of the process to avoid sending off an unfinished email. Remember, if you send the email to multiple people, all recipients can see the other contacts. Use the BCC function if you’d prefer to hide the recipients from everyone.

  • Send or schedule send.

You’re nearly ready to send your email. If you want to send it off right away, hit send. Alternatively, you can schedule it for another time or day. Timing is key when it comes to certain emails, so be sure to know the best time to send an email.

Types of Business Emails

When it comes to business emails, there isn’t just one format. Depending on whether you’re emailing a colleague or a customer will change how you address the person and what contents you include. In business, there are generally four types of business emails; these include:

  • Emails to colleagues. Emails to colleagues are all about communicating job-related matters to one another. These will be primarily text-based and professional or semi-professional in their tone.
  • Emails to potential business partners. These emails are similar to the ones sent to colleagues, except you’re now addressing external clients or partners. This might mean you don’t know the other person, so a professional tone is usually used.
  • Transactional emails. Transactional emails are triggered by a user’s action on your website. This includes subscribing to your newsletter or buying one of your products. These types of emails can be written in a creative way, depending on your company’s brand voice.
  • Marketing emails. Marketing emails are received by anyone who has signed up to your email list. These emails can be personalized; however, they are intended to be received by a large group. The subject of these emails includes any promotional activities, such as offering customers a discount or letting them know about a new product launch.

Types of business email

From guest post outreach to client onboarding emails, we’ve listed examples of some of the most common types of professional emails below.
