How to Write Effective Memos for Your Workplace and Business

I have received a few requests from my readers on how to write memos – which are essentially written messages from one person to another (or several people) in the same office or business organization.

Responding to your requests, here is a useful template to help you write effective office or business memos.  There is also a link at the bottom of this post to download a sample to help you create your own personalized memo! The names you see in the document have been kept fictitious for privacy reasons while the contents are actual samples from a memo I’ve written for my company.

MEMORANDUM
To   [Insert recipient’s name], [Insert recipient’s designation]
From [Insert sender’s name], [Insert sender’s designation]
Date [Insert date of issue]

[Insert Subject Heading]

1 [Insert Sub-Heading]
  [Insert body copy here]

2 [Insert Sub-Heading]
  [Insert body copy here]

3 [Insert Sub-Heading]
  [Insert body copy here]

[Insert complimentary close - Optional]

[Insert sender's signature]

[Insert “Copy”, if appropriate – E.g. Copy  Sales Department]
