You just wrote the perfect email and now you're searching for the best way to sign off and close that message you've stared at for the past hour – don't worry, we've all been there. The good thing is that you're mindful of it, because how you end your email is vital. Even if it is just a word or short phrase, the right closing, followed by your full name and signature (more on that in a few), is just the cherry on top of a well-written email. It's also the last thing the recipient reads.
First, you should consider your relationship with the recipient. If the message is business related or for a job, you should avoid using unprofessional language when closing out your email. This includes phrases like, "Yours truly" and words like "Love." Remember, context is key. But before we go through closings that never fail, here are some you should definitely avoid.
