Introduction Introduction Introduction

Writing is essential in the business world—it's the fuel that makes the car go. There is that business letter you need to send to a potential client or that long-delayed market research study your boss has been pestering you to submit. The business plan that investors look for before they lend you money for your start-up. Without a written business plan, your destiny as a future tycoon will grind to a halt when you can't get strategic partners and some much-needed funds. If you're an investor and someone offers you a business opportunity, you'll want to do a feasibility study first to test the waters—and make sure there aren't any sharks in it. With so many formal documents requested by people with money and influence, business writing has become a necessary skill in the workplace.

But the critical factor to consider here is not how well you write, but knowing what to write. This is what this e-book offers. It will reveal to you several essential types of business documents and how to develop these papers. This book will also explain the relevant information you need to write the more complex types of business documents. It is ideal for entrepreneurs, business students, corporate managers, and those involved in the business profession. As you turn through its pages, this e-book will introduce you to some business and research frameworks commonly taught in renowned business schools. Business writing is a lucrative profession, so much so that scores of companies and freelance writers put food on the table—and then some—through business writing projects.

Why pay others when you can learn to write it yourself?
