A simple email increases the odds of getting a response

“Why didn’t they respond to my email??” Waiting on an email response can be frustrating. Sometimes, you don’t get a response at all! You then spend time writing another email or trying other ways to reach out. This wastes time and energy for everyone involved.

Try simplifying your email. It will give you a higher chance of getting a response. Why?

People are overwhelmed with emails every day. The longer, more complex an email is, the more likely it’ll get skipped over and forgotten.

Here are some quick tips:

  • Use bullet points to highlight action items and key information
  • Use shorter paragraphs
  • Use bold font for important details
  • Keep it as short as possible

How do you help ensure a response when sending an email?
