Sign offs: The best ways to end an email

Niyo Writers’ Corner

So far, we’ve established how important it is to choose a suitable way to start an email.

Sign-offs are short phrases that are followed by your signature, and picking the right tone to sign-off requires some thought and flair.

If you are confused about how to end an email, it’s best to consider the context. Here are a few popular email sign-offs that work effectively:
