Let’s dive in!
Two Cs that always work!
When writing emails for customer support, these are the two Cs to keep in mind. 🎯
It is crucial to have a consistent tone and style of writing. No matter what support agent sends the email, the message should reflect your brand identity.
Consider having a standard template that includes generic greetings, formatting, etc. That helps in delivering a seamless experience.
Canned response templates 📜 are the best way to send quick replies to support queries. These are pre-defined answers that you can create and send as responses to customers.
Secondly, ensure that the answers you provide are simple, to the point, and with clear instructions. Avoid complicating information and using industry jargon. You do not want to confuse your customers.
The primary goal of the email is to help customers get quick answers to their questions. The clearer the messaging is, the faster you can solve their complaints.

A little empathy won’t hurt 🤝
Customers do not like the feeling of talking to a robot. Hence, the last thing you want is to make emails sound robotic. Here are a few points to keep in mind:
- To make email sound friendly and empathetic is to acknowledge how your customer feels. A statement like ‘we understand the issue you are facing, and our team is working on it’ is a good start.
- It is a good practice to address a customer by their name. It will help build trust and make them feel like a person is behind a screen.
- Whether a customer brings an issue under notice or gives you feedback, always thank them. It makes them feel valued.
Apart from this, when sending emails, check for typos and broken links. Blunders can pull you down. Ensure that you do not leave any emails unanswered. Following these simple tips will help you easily write support emails.
