  3. Set expectations: Give your attendees insight into the agenda so they can prepare. Let guests know if you need them to bring anything specific to the meeting.
  4. Use visual formatting: Break up long blocks of text with line breaks, bullets, and bolding for emphasis so your message is easy to digest.
  5. Send reminders: One week before your meeting, follow up with a reminder about the time and any prep work required. Send another 1-2 days prior as well.
