Email Tips: In this age of instant communication, isn’t it odd that a lot of communication is misunderstood, gets lost, becomes ineffective, seems meaningless, tiresome, rude and/or mean or is downright frustrating?
How many emails or text messages do you receive in a day?
Do you feel you spend too much time reading and responding to emails and/or text messages and too little time on family, your business or other important projects?
Take heart, you’re not alone! The email tips on this page will help.
Emails and text messages have, for a lot of people, taken the place of telephone calls or face-to-face communication. This can be problematic insofar as getting your message across correctly to the recipient.
With all this communicating, how much is really being effectively communicated?
According to communication experts, the most effective form of communication is still face-to-face because much of the intended meaning behind a message is subliminal such as facial expressions, body language, etc.
The next most effective means of communication is a phone call. While you miss the body language and facial expressions, you can hear the tone of voice which can provide a clue to the intended meaning of the message such as stress, hurt, anger, frustration, etc.
Email messages tend to be more effective than text messages. Why? Most people who send text messages tend to utilize acronyms and emojis much more than in an email message. Acronyms such as “LOL” (laugh out loud), etc. may be meaningful if you know what the letters stand for but, if you’re dealing with someone who doesn’t, the meaning becomes lost, and you leave your recipient confused and possibly frustrated.
In these modern times, however, email and texting are here to stay. Or, at least until the next generation of geek-communication is invented!
It’s unlikely that email and texting will go the way of the dinosaur any time soon. So, how many emails are too many? Good question!
Surveys taken by communication and human relations experts state that 50 emails per day is the maximum number that most people feel they can handle before becoming stressed. Your number may be higher or lower, but that’s the average for most.
So, if you find your email inbox is full to over-flowing, here are some tips on how to deal with that avalanche of emails. Please see the tips below:
