With the flood of messages cascading into inboxes, it’s important to make your emails float to the top of the flotsam in order to get a response.
Chris Brogan offers nine tips to make your messages stand out and get a response.
9 WAYS TO IMPROVE THE IMPACT OF YOUR EMAIL
1. 1 subject per email. Ask only 1 question.
2. Brevity. Short sentences. Less than 300 words.
3. Remove that bunch of “general’s ribbons” that makes up your signature. Pick 1, 2 tops ways for people to reach you.
4. Use plain text, or the simplest possible HTML. Flashy and fancy or (shudder) stationary never help.
