Sunday newsagency challenge: be serious about email

I was talking with newsagent last week who said they only check emails twice a week. This is not good. Checking emails in business is as important as answering the phone in business. If you miss an important email you may miss an important business opportunity or obligation.

    Receiving well over a 100 a day and having to resort to “unsubscribe” more frequently. Biggest issue is the senders who randomly mix up important announcements, with untargeted email, selling offers, staff announcements and all sorts of crap that detracts from their main purpose.

    Deleting less than 10% without opening, but probably deleting 75% of rest within 2 seconds as soon as it is apparent the email is irrelevant.

    Emails are not free, they are a financial burden on the recipient, Senders should remind them selves of that.

    These days I seem to get more junk (spams, scams, emails with links to malware infested websites, things like that) than actual valid emails. And I am on a fair few mailing lists as well…

    Some suppliers could help by taking more care with their “from”line.
    eg from DebbieG@ is not a help when trying to filter out invoices.
