108.7 billion business emails were sent and received per day in 2014 (The Radicati Group, 2014).
With so many emails landing in our inboxes every day, we spend less time reading each one. The result: no-one is focusing on one document or task at a time, including your email. All of us are skimming to pick out the main points, so it’s important to write your emails to be skimmable.
