Industry Insights: A Note On Scheduling Emails
Happy Saturday, friends!
When I host my lunch and learn or consult calls, I get a lot of questions return to the topic of emails.
These questions include topics such as: Is there a better time or day to email? Is there a “sweet sauce” to how often and when to follow up? And so forth.
What I often say as far as the best time of day to email is that it's all good to me. I'm just about always on my email. And if I'm not, your email will be there when I get back to my email.
But for people who do have a preferred time or day to receive email, or if your preference is to have an email arrive at a specific time or day, scheduling emails is a lifesaver. I usually work most Saturday afternoons and schedule many emails to arrive on Monday mornings. This can be everything from pending assignments to research questions to invoices.
Whatever your reason for scheduling, in today's Industry Insights edition I'll do a quick refresher on how to schedule and also why it’s an incredible asset for staying productive and on top of an exploding inbox.
Also: How to use scheduling email specifically as a pitching and followup asset in your own work.
