The world as we know it has grown increasingly smaller as we integrate technology into every interaction that we have.
Whether it be collaborating with team members, project management, or even how we exercise. The email has been one of the main technologies perpetuating this change. It makes international business and collaboration more convenient than we ever thought possible.
Doesn't matter if you are negotiating with a product supplier in Asia, setting up a meeting with your partner offices in South America, or scheduling updates with clients in Europe. Email is the glue that holds this all together and makes the process easy and efficient. Think about if we actually had to call each other! Email streamlines the process and allows us to remain connected anytime, anywhere.

However, we’ve compiled these top 5 international email etiquette tips on how to make a good impression with all of your clients and colleagues across the globe.
