A Few Notes on Email
In an average day, I receive between 100 and 200 emails. That’s just part of my life, but as of late, I have three massive complaints.
- You know that awesome idea you have to auto send the email at 9am in your time zone so it comes in just as I start my workday? Remember, 50 other people had the same idea. 9am Pacific and Eastern are the worst by far. Just… stop.
- If you put “Re: TOPIC” in your subject line, that seems like a reply. If I open the email and it’s not a reply, I’m done with you. It’s a lowball move and I have no time for it.
- Proof your email before you send it to me. You’re trying to convince me to cover your product. If you can’t take the time to do that why should I give you the time of day?
There are such simple things. Lets try to do all of them, shall we?
