How To Email Like A Blogger Girl Boss

(picture credit: google.com)

AD | Hello my lovelies, happy Monday! Being a blogger/social media influencer, I receive a lot of emails on a regular basis and sometimes it be really polite to email your replies in certain ways, so I wanted to help others in doing so and hopefully learn some of you a trick or two on of some of the ways I have picked up on how to email brands like a girl boss so I really hope that some of these really help you all out when getting stuck with an email.

Everyone gets overwhelmed sometimes and it can take a little while to reply to all emails and have a clear inbox...
✖️ Sorry for the delay.
✔️ Thank you so much for your patience.

You want to work with this brand/company but you're really busy right now with other commitments on your website...
✖️ What works best for you?
✔️ Could you please do ___?

You're thanking them for their time...
✖️ No problem, thanks!
✔️ You're more than welcome, always happy to help!

You're working with a brand and have struck to a halt, but have an idea to pitch to them...
✖️ I think maybe we should ___.
✔️ It'd be best if we ___.

Working an email can sometimes be really hard work, as you may sound like you have no clue what you're doing or you're rambling.
✖️ *re-write email tons of times over an hour*
✔️ It'd be easier to discuss this in person/on a web-call/on the phone. When are you available?

You're sent a complicated email and after reading it back, it doesn't make sense to you anymore.
✖️ Hopefully, that makes sense to you?
✔️ Please, let me know if you have any questions.

A brand/company has been in touch with you and seem really keen on working with you but now have been quiet and not replied to your email. But, you want to email them back to make sure they got your first email reply...
✖️ Just wanted to check in and see if you got my reply?
✔️ Would it be possible to have an update from you please regarding my latest reply?

Made a mistake and forgot to include something in your email and now you look like you don't have what you're doing and feel really unprofessional?
✖️ Ahh sorry, my bad! I forgot to do that.
✔️ Thank you so much for the update, I do apologise. File now attached. Thank you so much for letting me know!

Got an appointment planned with a brand/company but now an appointment has come up all of a sudden and you need to re-arrange...
✖️ Could I possibly leave early?
✔️ I've had a personal appointment to attend at ___ that has come up suddenly. As this will cut out meeting short, would you like to rearrange?

Attended an event and loved it so want to be included in the future?
✖️ Thanks for the tickets! Would love to work with you again?
✔️ Thank you so much for getting in touch with me about the ___ event, I really enjoyed myself! I'd love to be considered for future events in the near future, please keep me in mind? (Include any pictures or videos from the event which you have taken, and let them know when the article will be upon your website)

A top brand has sent you some awesome looking products but you haven't managed to review them yet as life has been hectic, now it's been two weeks and the brand wants to know when the article will be live on your website?
✖️ So sorry, it will be up soon.
✔️ I do apologise. The article featuring your products will be up on ___ at ___. Would you like me to email you the direct link to my website when it's live?

Have an online meeting you're running late?
✖️ Sorry, I'm late, (explain what happened)...
✔️ I'm so sorry I am late, thank you so much for waiting for me.

Made a mistake in an article and the brand has emailed you about it?
✖️ Sorry, will change that!
✔️ Thank you so much for noticing, I'll change that right away!


With love, Alisha Valerie. x

  21. This is absolutely brilliant! I have a horrible tendency to over-apologize in emails, even professional ones. This is a great way to communicate politely and professionally, while still maintaining your own level of professionalism and self worth. Again, great list!
