Email isn’t dead yet – but how long will it last?





An unbelievable 2.8 million emails are reportedly sent a second and so is it any surprise that you’re a slave to Outlook for the first few hours of your recruiting day?

With so many genuine emails being classed as junk by the recipient, isn’t it about time you got a bit smarter with whom you engage with on email and considered a recruitment CRM that facilitates working a little smarter?


I’ve received almost 50,000 emails in less than 36 months - sound familiar?

Let’s face it. We’re all tied to out mailboxes, phones and webmail but as I draft this email (offline) whilst sipping a coffee, I thought I’d share my top tips to staying ahead of the email tidal wave.

Paul Thompsons top tips to staying ahead;
  • Disconnect from the network whilst drafting your emails - You’ll avoid the temptation to read emails as they arrive!
  • Use ‘Outlook's Social Media Connector’ – It's awesome and free!
  • Select ‘block sender’ - Instead if hitting delete on junk emails (it’s just as quick)
  • Invest in a decent spam filter
  • And my super-duper top tip – Pick up the phone!

If you’d like to know what other practical suggestions have been implemented into our Recruiting tools drop me a tweet - or pick up the phone!
