We live in a computer era and modern businesses have access to more communication tools than businesses 20 years ago.
Initially, people thought computers would stop (or at least eliminate) paper … Now we use more paper than before computers. Paradoxes of everyday life …
Types of business correspondence used today:
- business letters
- faxes and
When someone mentions "business correspondence" around you, what's the first thing that comes to your mind? If we are like most people, they would probably be able to write a message immediately. Even though today's business e-mail is much more used than fonts. But business letters were the only type of business correspondence far longer than any of us remember, so "business correspondence" is still related to them as any other type. And like anything that "is already there" for a long time business letters just need to have very well defined rules and rules. So none of us are surprised when students are taught today that communication classes use words such as "this reminds me," "for the above," "I write for counseling."
to employees who have to write business letters and, of course, write them as they have been taught without question. "If everyone does, if their teachers do this, then that's the only way." "Creativity is not about writing business letters!" And business letters, in the worst sense, become "artwork," as people seem to compete to fill in as many glorious, unmistakable sentences as possible.
However, this is gradually changing. We are pushing for more and more business letters to write with clear and concise language, natural style and conversational sound. People even use "I" instead of "we" write business letters recently, which makes the leaves less flourishing and allows the visitor to see the post. deeply as business letters. They are probably considered to be by-products of business letters and are considered secondary ones. They also appeared in the 1920s and are much "younger" than business letters. This is probably the reason why they are generally less formal and generally more human. Each business uses a lot of business reminders and sends a lot of emails today, which is still ubiquitous.
Business Faxes became known in the 1980s. In fact, these entries were longer, but very few people had access to fax machines. So most of them say that faxes are part of the business environment for about 30 years, which can not be compared to the business life of the business. As a result, there are not too many rules for writing faxes. Everyone wrote them as they thought it was appropriate. And now the faxes are slow deaths. Of course there is something about faxing through the computer, but it is so close to the email that it is likely to be handled. But do not rush to drop the fax machine. Faxes are still very widely used, in some countries more than others and will last for at least a few years.
Business Email … the latest and most common type of business correspondence in today's office. How did we live without and without it? How are people who do not use email? … there are still such eccentrics, do you know? E-mail is a blessing and curse of modern life, a modern business. It is very useful as a means of instant communication, but it is a burden for those who have thousands of opened messages in their inbox. Spam is a very big problem, though a bit less recently, when there are ways to take advantage of it (more or less). Email is still in its infancy, though we all know it's here to stay longer and use more and more … if nothing improves, of course. The good thing is to get used to managing emails gradually and we realize that although it's very close to phone conversation, it's still a type of business correspondence, "business" is the word of business.
Business letters, emails, and reminders will mean a fairly widely used business correspondence. Faxes are still there, and in the next 10 years they will show that they will be completely e-mailed. Who knows that in a few years, there may be a new type of business correspondence.
