Hello everyone! Welcome to E-mail Picks.
I've been giving more seminars at our

0:00:10.230,0:00:15.179
client companies these days. I've had
like four this month and aside from that

0:00:15.179,0:00:20.820
I'm speaking at two free-to-join seminars
where anybody from any company

0:00:20.820,0:00:26.099
can join and listen to our presentation
about how to make your English training

0:00:26.099,0:00:31.800
program make direct business impact.
Anybody from any company can join except

0:00:31.800,0:00:36.450
people from our competitors. We don't
want to give away useful information to

0:00:36.450,0:00:41.790
our competitors for free, so what we do
is we ask people who want to come to the

0:00:41.790,0:00:47.039
seminar to to fill out an application form.
And in that application form, we

0:00:47.039,0:00:51.120
want them to let us know their company
names, then our administrative staff

0:00:51.120,0:00:56.640
check online to see if that company
exists and then do a little research to

0:00:56.640,0:01:01.289
see if they are not one of our competitors.
If they are a competitor, we

0:01:01.289,0:01:05.369
nicely decline their application. Now
this morning, there was an applicant

0:01:05.369,0:01:11.100
named Mr. Sloan who inputs a company
name that didn't exist. We did a Google

0:01:11.100,0:01:15.360
search and we didn't find their website.
So next, we went to the national tax

0:01:15.360,0:01:20.189
agency's website because they have all
the companies in Japan registered and

0:01:20.189,0:01:23.189
listed there, but we still couldn't
find the company name.

0:01:23.189,0:01:28.439
So it's either Mr. Sloan misspelled the
company name or he is putting in a fake

0:01:28.439,0:01:32.970
name. I need to confirm with him. So today,
let me show you how I would write that

0:01:32.970,0:01:38.909
email. Hello Mr. Sloan, thank you for
your interest in participating in the

0:01:38.909,0:01:43.140
upcoming seminar entitled "How to make
your English training program make

0:01:43.140,0:01:47.310
direct business impact. We are confident
that we will be able to provide useful

0:01:47.310,0:01:51.299
insight into setting up an effective
English training program. When we looked

0:01:51.299,0:01:55.619
at our online application, we noticed the
company name you had input was not a

0:01:55.619,0:02:00.390
name found via web search in the
National Tax Agency website. You may have

0:02:00.390,0:02:04.530
misspelt your company name. Could we
ask you to provide the corrected name by

0:02:04.530,0:02:07.830
replying to this e-mail? We will process
your application as

0:02:07.830,0:02:11.720
soon as we receive notice. We look
forward to hearing from you.

0:02:11.820,0:02:15.240
Okay, so this is the first time I'm writing to this

0:02:15.240,0:02:19.890
person, so in my first paragraph,
I'm explaining what this e-mail is in

0:02:19.890,0:02:24.930
reference to. Now the difficult part is
the second paragraph because I need to

0:02:24.930,0:02:31.470
point out an error without offending Mr. Sloan.
So first, I stated facts: we looked

0:02:31.470,0:02:36.060
in the official registry of company names
and we couldn't find his company.

0:02:36.320,0:02:41.260
And then I wanted to communicate
that I was not suspicious that Mr. Sloan

0:02:41.340,0:02:45.400
was giving a fake company name or
anything. So I wrote: you may have

0:02:45.480,0:02:50.700
misspelled your company name.
You may have... is a soft, indirect

0:02:50.760,0:02:55.780
way of pointing out a mistake somebody
made. It's very commonly used. And then I

0:02:55.800,0:02:59.680
wrote down the next steps so that Mr. Sloan
will understand that his

0:02:59.680,0:03:05.140
application will not move forward unless
he replies. So there you go, an e-mail to

0:03:05.160,0:03:11.300
ask for missing information. If the
company name was actually fake, then Mr. Sloan

0:03:11.300,0:03:16.740
will probably not reply. If it was
actually just a typo, then great. We'll have

0:03:16.740,0:03:18.740
another participant coming to the seminar.

0:03:18.740,0:03:23.380
Fine by me either way. So anyway, that's
it for today, thank you for watching and

0:03:23.380,0:03:26.180
I'll see you next week.
