クリスさん、

ご多用のところお邪魔してしまい恐縮ですが、先日の発表を受けて、商品Xについてチーム内で2点ほど質問させていただきたいです:

1. 商品を試してみたいお客様にトライアルパッケージなどそういったものを提供する予定はございますか?
2. リファンドの方針はどのようになりますか?

いずれに関してもこれから決められることかと思いますが、ご都合の良い時にご教示いただければ幸いです。よろしくお願いします。

Hello, everyone! Welcome to E-mail Picks. I just came out of a company-wide meeting and

0:00:10.679,0:00:15.660
in this meeting, we were informed that
the business development department was

0:00:15.660,0:00:20.760
going to launch a new product later this
year. The product doesn't directly relate

0:00:20.760,0:00:25.260
to our job, but I felt we could introduce
it to some of our customers. So, the

0:00:25.260,0:00:30.269
department head was giving a
presentation and at the end, as usual,

0:00:30.269,0:00:33.020
he asked the audience if they had any
questions.

0:00:33.020,0:00:37.649
Nobody had any questions. I guess we were
busy trying to understand the

0:00:37.649,0:00:41.610
presentation content and we couldn't
come up with any questions on the spot.

0:00:41.610,0:00:46.230
So he told us to contact him later if we
have any questions.

0:00:46.230,0:00:50.820
So, in our department, we discussed what
our customers would want to know in case

0:00:50.820,0:00:55.530
we have a chance to introduce the
product and we came up with two. So today,

0:00:55.530,0:00:59.640
I'm going to write an e-mail to the
business development department head to

0:00:59.640,0:01:04.080
ask those two questions. So here goes:
Hello Chris,

0:01:04.080,0:01:07.830
I'm sorry to bother you when you must be
very busy. After listening to your

0:01:07.830,0:01:12.450
presentation, our team came up with a
couple of questions about Product X:

0:01:12.450,0:01:16.200
1. Are you considering offering a trial
package or something of that sort for

0:01:16.200,0:01:21.360
customers who would like to test it?
2. What will the refund policy be like?

0:01:21.360,0:01:24.299
We suppose one or both of these points
are yet to be decided.

0:01:24.299,0:01:29.159
Please let us know at your earliest
convenience. Kyota. OK, so in the first

0:01:29.159,0:01:33.450
paragraph, I'm giving the background
information to let Chris know why I'm

0:01:33.450,0:01:37.409
emailing him. I didn't forget to say
something nice at the beginning. I wrote:

0:01:37.409,0:01:40.340
"I'm sorry to bother you when you must be
very busy"

0:01:40.340,0:01:45.299
then comes the two questions -- nothing
complicated. And in the final paragraph,

0:01:45.299,0:01:49.290
I wanted to tell Chris that we know
there's a little more planning to do

0:01:49.290,0:01:53.820
before launching the new product and his
department may not have decided on these

0:01:53.820,0:01:59.689
points, so I wrote: "we suppose one or both
of these points are yet to be decided"

0:01:59.689,0:02:03.960
then Chris will understand that we are
not in a rush to know, but we are

0:02:03.960,0:02:08.819
certainly curious. So there you go, an
e-mail to inquire about a new product

0:02:08.819,0:02:11.910
internally.
I respect Chris for his project

0:02:11.910,0:02:17.250
management skills, so I bet this new
product will be a blast. So anyway, thanks

0:02:17.250,0:02:21.530
for watching, that's it for today.
I'll see you next week.
