Networking is very important for your work and personal life.
When you associate yourself with others and get benefit from mutual objectives, it becomes necessary to show to your benefactors (people in your network) that you care for them too. This can be effectively done throough an informal networking email.
Start the email by creating a subject line. Your subject could be anything and depends on the message of the email.
Use salutation and remember that an ‘informal’ networking email should not sound formal. If you are writing to a friend, you can use his/her name — no need to put Mr. or Ms. before the name. However, you should use Dear before it. If you are sending an invitation to your customers or clients, you can use Dear Client/Customer.
The first paragraph should state why you are writing the email. The basic information about yourself, if the recipient(s) of the email is not familiar with you, can be included in the opening paragraph. Informal emails do not follow guidelines of letter writing, you can start as you like, but the start of the email should clarify what the message is all about.
Talk in detail about why you are writing this email. Your subject matter can be anything, from an invitation to an event to a party at a friend’s home. The important thing to remember is that you should not forget to mention the details in order to keep the reader(s) engaged.
Conclude the letter by intimating what you expect out of the recipient and thank him/her.
