Always Be Closing

Close your emails with an expression of gratitude and you'll boost the chance of response by 36%, according to a study by Boomerang.

While there are lots of ways to say "thanks," the software company sampled the closings in 350,000 emails and concluded these three expressions are the top performers:
  • Thanks in advance garners a 65.7% response
  • Thanks garners a 63% response
  • Thank you garners a 57.9% response
There must be 50 ways to leave your reader (Forbes says so, anyway).

But the above three work best.

HAT TIP: Thanks in advance to Mike Hatch for suggesting this post.
