How to Write a Follow-Up Email [Tutorial]
Email has become the main source of communication in a professional setting, which is why it’s important to maintain proper email etiquette when conversing with colleagues or clients. After a conversation has been established via email, it’s not uncommon for a string of messages to follow. Responding to these follow-up messages doesn’t necessarily require you to follow the same protocol as the initial email.
