Chapter 4: Netiquette

Netiquette is a system of social grace on the Internet. Sales and marketing specialists especially should be aware of and practice proper Internet communication styles. After all, these communications represent not only themselves, but also their companies.

Students, too, should begin develop good business practices for Internet usage. While it may be acceptable to email friends and family with messages typed all in lower case, or without much attention to sentence construction, punctuation and spelling, you would not want your business communications to look this informal. Take a look at the messages on the I-Sales Discussion List; they are professional communications. Begin now to develop good Internet communication habits.

Several sites offer Netiquette advice, such as Albion. Life on the Internet is another useful site that has links to web sites with information ranging from Netiquette to a Smiley dictionary {=:)}.
