I want you to ask yourself something:
How much of your time is being sucked up from emails every day?
I don’t know about you but my computer routine consists of deleting a bunch of emails, then opening one and going down a rabbit hole of online shopping, then going back to deleting more emails then going back to online shopping, and just like that, an hour of my day gone and I accomplished nothing!
But You Can Learn A Lot From Emails
I personally learned a lot about marketing just from my inbox. I noticed the emails that caught my attention and I put those emails in a folder called ‘swipe file’ and I use them as examples when I go to write my emails. I also pay close attention to people doing event funnels or webinar funnels and I swipe those into a file too!
What I’m trying to say is that email is not dead. In fact, it’s highly effective for selling something.
Why I Got Out of Email
I couldn’t run my day effectively because email is addictive. Emails are great if we are selling something, but not so great if we are trying to be productive.
So here’s what I did.
- I opened a Slack account and put it on my phone and my desktop.
- I moved my VA, team and anyone I do business with onto Slack.
- I set up an autoresponder on my Gmail letting people know that I do not check this email anymore and to email my virtual assistant. (If you don’t have a virtual assistant you are making a mistake).
Let me know if this helped you!
