You may be wonder how is junk mail productive?
It’s not. Read on for more.
Often times we need to send a file, document or information on something.
With email accounts we can do so with the click of a button.
The productivity lesson here is check the junk or bulk mail folders in case something ended up in there.
It takes even MORE time out of our day when a quick email has to be turned into multiple follow up phone calls.
This has been mentioned as a Tech Tip & it can be filed under productivity as well.
Three months ago when our offices got a new domain email contacted clients as well as others who “frequently contacted” us to let them know.
Anyone that didn’t reply within two business days was followed up with a phone call.
In our case there were only a few who needed a follow up call thankfully.
Often times even with friends have sent important instructions or even professional introduction. Then following up after not hearing back have to ask if they checked their junk folder.
It really is time consuming to need to follow up individually on matters of non importance or non urgency.
Imagine doing that to 100 people a day & each call being five mins.
That’s 500 minutes wasted, almost 10 hours.
Company rule as of a few months ago, unless urgent or related to our business no more needless follow ups & as of this month that is including telling people to check junk mail.
That times is better spent focusing on what generates cash flow into our company.
