How long do you let unopened e-mail messages sit in your inbox?
One day, one week, one month or even longer?
A lot of people have problems when it comes to effectively managing their e-mail accounts. And, if this problem becomes too great, it can result in missed opportunities.
The opposite is also true; when you’re trying to connect with someone who has bad e-mail habits, your message can be overlooked. And when it comes to using e-mail to make connections for more opportunities, this can be a major hurdle to overcome.
First, if you have an overflowing e-mail inbox and don’t know where to start in order to get organized, then now is the time to tackle this. Depending on the type of e-mails you get, I find it
best to sort by sender. This way, I can see the last e-mail I received from a particular person and work from there. Go through your most important contacts first to search for important messages. And then delete messages you no longer need.
Next, set a schedule. Most people get tied to checking their e-mails every chance they get. Of course, this can keep you up-to-date on every message you get, but it can also be distracting
you from much more important activities.
Try checking your e-mails just twice a day. Set aside 45 minutes to an hour and make sure you open, reply to and then delete messages. Once your hour is up, even if you’re not finished, log off the Internet and carry on with your day. Over time, you’ll find you can fit more e-mails into your hour and you’ll notice you have more time for everything else you do in a day.
On the other hand, when it comes to dealing with people who have bad e-mail habits, there are a few things you can do to help get your e-mails noticed.
First, use a strong subject line with specific information about what you’re going to mention in the body of your message. I get thousands of e-mails with the subject line, “Hello.” These
are so tempting to just ignore or delete.
For the body of your e-mail, get to the point and do it fast. Friends and family may appreciate your longer stories, but business contacts only want the bare essentials.
And finally, use the “high priority” marker with care. If people begin to notice that you flag every message you send as “high priority,” then you’re going to notice they stop opening your
messages. If it truly is a high-priority message, then mark it appropriately; if not, then don’t cry wolf to get people to open your message.
Effectively managing your time online is one way to free yourself from the distractions that could be getting in the way of you making money. You received this message on Saturday morning; if you’ve been online for more than an hour already, my suggestion is to log off and take action towards your moneymaking goals right now.
