If you’re reading your business emails once a day or less frequently it’s not often enough. While already an out of date form of communication for some, email plays an important role in business. Some suppliers have migrated to email away from mail and fax. Checking it less frequently than once a day is not enough.
Twice already this year retailers have told me they check email once a week if that. They were dismissive of the b=medium. Once said that if someone wants him to know something they will call or fax. I don’t think so.
Email replacing mail and fax is one way businesses can cut costs. It takes less time to read emails plus they are in a form to more easily file, pass on or delegate.
