How To Sign off Emails & Avoid Thanks, Regards at the end of every email?

I have an awkward confession to my audience today.

Maximum times, I sign off my emails with “Thanks & Regards!”

It doesn’t matter if I have anything to show appreciation for or not– it leads to being my default signature.

I was doing this mistake from the last 10 years and today I have realized it is a big mistake if you communicate frequently and using the same signatures and sign-offs all the time.

So, go ahead and bookmark this page and come back to it when you feel like straying from your standard email sign-off and trying something a little different.

Again, not all of these will be appropriate for every single email you send. Just as in spoken communication, the words you use with your boss or an important client will be much different from the ones you’d use with a close friend or co-worker.

So, make sure to think through the message and the circumstances before adding your signature–particularly if you’re thinking of using a snarkier one. Feeling stuck? This handy guide can help you determine whether or not you can drop the formalities.
