Stop Getting Backlogged With Emails

Email has transformed business, and the majority of us are grateful. Gone are the days of problematic fax machines or the need to drive across town—or fly across the country—to get a contract executed. Email has made communication easier.

The problem for many of us, though, is that our sheer email volume makes it difficult to keep up, leaving us with overflowing inboxes. Here are a few tips to help you get yours under control.

  • Commit: Since your inbox is already backlogged, it will take some time to get it back to 0. Set aside a day to do just that. It will be time consuming, but once you have your inbox cleared out entirely you will be able to stay organized moving forward.
  • Unsubscribe: Look, you barely got to that email from your manager yesterday. There is no way you are going to have time to look over that newsletter of recipes or health tips. Unsubscribe from all of your non-work related emails and save yourself the trouble of having to navigate those unimportant emails.
  • File: If you walked into an office without a filing system, you would be appalled. Why, then, do we think it is okay to leave our inboxes unorganized. Implement a filing system in your inbox to help you prioritize the most pressing matters while keeping others where they will not be forgotten.
  • Archive: To prevent inbox backlog, archive all messages that either do not need a response or do not need to stay immediately top of mind for you. You can also relocate archived emails by searching if you need them, and this system will help you keep your inbox clutter-free.

Managing your inbox is just one step on the road to success. To get the full roadmap, contact Mike Stromsoe’s Unstoppable Profit Producer Program. Our premier wealth creation program helps you work less, earn more, and enjoy life!

Engaging Your Customer For More Meaningful Communication

Use This Guide To Connect With Your Clients

In our fast-paced world, many people do not regularly connect with the businesses that serve them. This is fine, until it comes time for them to renew their service or purchase a new product. If business owners have not implemented ways for your team to build customer relationships, they could lose that client. To help your business improve communication with customers to see more success, implement these tips.

  • Be Proactive, Not Reactive: If you only ever talk with your customers when they have a question or a complaint, you are missing out on fostering conversations that help them build trust and loyalty to your brand. Encourage your team to stay in regular communication with your customers, offering guidance and help.
  • Stay Current: Utilize the means of communication that your clients actually use. Studies show that the average text message is opened within seven minutes of receipt, so consider utilizing SMS to reach your customers. Just ensure that you choose an option that will be free to the end user.
  • Get Creative: Do not just send out run-of-the-mill, copy and paste industry templates to your clients. Think about what you would want from your communication with the businesses that serve you. Send interesting, engaging communications that brand your company as friendly and forward thinking.
  • Know Your Clients: When you send digital communications, you have the ability to track which are being best received. Utilize the resources available to you to ensure that your outreach is actually making an impact on your client base.

Becoming The Best Listener

How To Best Connect By Listening

Listening may not seem like the most crucial skill, but failing to hear what your business partners and clients are saying can spell failure for business owners. Communication is a crucial part of business success, and learning to listen is an integral part of being a successful communicator. To help you become the best listener, consider this guide.

  • Be Quiet: We too easily associate silent moments during a conversation with awkwardness, but letting the conversation breathe with a few pauses can actually encourage a deeper dialogue. Do not be afraid to take a moment to process what the other person is saying. That way, you will not miss out on important communication.
  • Be Thoughtful: When another person is talking, do not just be thinking of what you will say next. Let your mind slow down from always having to have a quick retort, and pay actual attention to the person who is speaking.
  • Be Brave: A fear of looking foolish can keep you from asking questions, but that can also mean you miss out on important information. If you are unsure what the person speaking is talking about, do not be afraid to say, “What I think you are saying is _______? Is that accurate?”
  • Be Encouraging: People are much more likely to engage in a conversation when they feel that what they are saying is being appreciated. As you listen, look for ways you can validate what the person is saying.
