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 the Recruiting day?
With so many genuine emails being classed at 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’ – its 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!
