You just got off the phone with a potential client. You send over the documents and ask them to get back to you in a few days. The problem? A few days pass by and you still haven’t heard back. Luckily, you set a “3 Days with No Reply” trigger. Your email chain marks itself unread, jumping to the top of your inbox and the top of your mind. Now it’s a simple matter of following up and the business is yours!
This added productivity is incredible. But you can double up on productivity by using email reminders to reach the ever elusive inbox zero. Say you get an invitation to an important event. Instead of cluttering your inbox with the email chain, archive the email after setting an email reminder. Two days before the event, the emails will move back into your inbox and remind you what lies ahead.
Now you’re great at following up, and you can keep a clean inbox at all times. As an added bonus, use email reminders to keep tabs on important conversations. Set triggers to remind you to check in on employees who haven’t submitted work within a deadline. This keeps your whole team on track and making great progress.
