Business Writing Classroom Training in NYC
Business Writing Affects Your Bottom Line
Writing effective business emails affects everything from customer service to sales, and morale within the office. A well-written email could make the difference between a happy customer and a disgruntled patron. Excellent business writing will increase confidence in your employees and staff.
Business writing involves knowing your target audience, the goal of your message, and its purpose. Along with defining your audience, message, and objective, it’s equally important to use proper grammar and writing techniques. Writing a sales proposal for a prospective client and a memo outlining office behavior require two very different sets of skills.
Business Writing courses at NYIM will help your staff prepare for all types of situations.
Our Business Writing Classes
Your company’s writing is a reflection of your professionalism, intelligence, and expertise to the outside world. Embarrassing grammar blunders such as misspellings, misused words, and poor sentence structure can confuse your audience and decrease confidence in your business. Even the most advanced writing and editing software programs miss significant grammar errors. In our Business Writing courses at NYIM, you’ll learn how to be your own editor.
Our Grammar Essentials courses offer a comprehensive review of grammar rules. You’ll learn how to identify common grammar errors, write effectively for different audiences, and identify the correct form of a word depending on its part of speech. At the end of the course, you’ll practice identifying and correcting your own mistakes.
Effective Business Writing For All Situations
Our Effective Business Writing course offers practical strategies to sharpen your writing skills from idea to final draft. The class begins by reviewing the core of effective writing—knowing your audience, organizing your thoughts, and writing strong sentences. Following, you will explore a variety of different types of writing in a business setting.
You will learn to write effective digital communication, such as emails, instant messages, and text messages. Next, you’ll explore different types of office communication, from making announcements and requests to delivering bad news. Finally, you’ll learn to write formal documents, including business letters and proposals.
Master Complicated Business Documents in Advanced Business Writing
In our Advanced Business Writing classes, you will learn how to prepare complex documents for any purpose. Learn outline and formatting techniques for different business documents, including schedules, proposals, project plans, and contracts. The Advanced course focuses on writing complex, multi-page business documents.
At the end of the advanced writing workshop, you’ll be able to create business documents using a four-step process. You’ll determine the purpose of the text and define its audience.

You must still develop your ideas, express them clearly, and persuade others of their viability. Our courses offer practical strategies to sharpen your writing skills by structuring your thoughts logically, exercising diplomacy in letters and reports, and shaping your arguments.
