I get a lot of emails every day. I have 3,800 emails in my JibberJobber inbox, and over 15,000 emails in my Gmail inbox. I know, it’ horrible. I gave up on “zero inbox” a long time ago.
I recently saw a message that was many paragraphs. This is simply too long.
Folks, if you want people to read your emails, be concise. Short. Keep the topics to one or two. Make it easy for busy people to read in the very short time they give your email, and make it super easy for them to respond. That means, let them know how to respond.
In the spirit of this message, I’m going to end this blog post with this one word: CONCISE!
