Tips on Memos

Elements of an Effective Memo

An effective memo:

  • grabs the reader’s attention
  • provides information, makes a recommendation, or asks for action
  • supports your position or explains benefits to reader
  • mentions next steps and deadlines

When composing a memo, always take the four-step approach to writing: plan what you want to say, write a draft, revise the draft, and edit.
