Write less. Write faster. Write better.
I found this program very useful in my business emails, immediately useful and executable. The creator quickly goes through the basics and delves deeply into advanced topics that will benefit all of us.

With our free course samples (at right), you can see for yourself what Email Excellence is like.
Two things to consider before you take a look:
- Your connection speed. Viewing our samples is a good way to test whether your connection speed is adequate. Many of our samples are quite large, so that if they're loading at a reasonable speed, you can be certain that your connection is adequate.
- Your software. Email Excellence relies on standard web technology — basically, your web browser and Adobe Flash. If you're not certain whether you have Flash on your computer, just go to our Flash Test page here; if it turns out you don't have Flash installed, you can download it further down the same page.
