The vast majority of my work is carried out in writing. A little known fact about me is that I don’t actually like using the phone but force myself to do so to make sales calls, keep conversations going with prospects, etc. Here are 3 quick e-mail hacks I use to boost my productivity.
- Reduce the back and forth when scheduling calls and meetings
- Make use of “no response needed”. Busy people love this!
- Get creative with your auto responder
Here’s a quick tidbit I stumbled over entirely by chance from some personal reading the other day. Diffusion of responsibility is psychology jargon and it’s why group e-mails project managers sometimes send out are never a good idea; at least not for translators anyway.
