This is the second post, in a five-part blog series, on how to save valuable time, maximize output and limit distractions on a daily basis.
In today’s marketplace, email continues to be a vital communication channel for conducting business. However, I have found that it can exhaust a significant portion of your time each day if you allow it. My second time-saving strategy includes three tactics on how to utilize email effectively without having to sacrifice too many valuable minutes that could otherwise be spent closing deals and making connections.
- Short, to the point, meat up front. Don’t waste a lot of time and effort on set up. Just say it quickly.
- Templates rule: Build a standard, easy to customize template for introductions, follow-up, meeting confirmation and close.
- Don’t get trapped in long email strings. Pick up the phone if it looks like it’s going to be a 3-4 exchange topic.
