If you work for any organization (including your own) then you are probably aware that sending emails is a big deal. And as it pertains to getting tasks completed, and projects are done successfully then you’ll realize that reading emails are even a BIGGER deal.
Here are 5 of the commonest email sins you don’t want to commit:
Agreed, it can get really intense at the office and there’s a tendency to fire off emails but bear in mind that senders of typo-filled emails are usually tagged as careless or too hasty. A final read-through before clicking the Send button is never a bad idea.
Have you ever had someone repeat the same story to you over and over until it got quite annoying?
Same thing with Chainmail. Your inability to start a mail on a new page instead of constantly lumping them together can earn you a Lazy tag. If you have to send chain mail, perhaps for clarification purposes then do not change the wording of any part of the previous messages as it might raise red flags.
Sending new emails on threads with sensitive information
This is a big NO. Avoid this mistake at all costs. Few things are more embarrassing than having colleagues read through a sensitive issue that doesn’t concern them in an email from you.
Delicate information leaks easily this way and can even cost you your job.
Not checking office email accounts regularly enough
You may be sinking in a bog of paperwork but keeping track of incoming office email is important.
Many will probably be time-sensitive and putting them off will only make your workload seem even larger. It’s less arduous to check regularly if you’re not in a meeting or away from your desk.
Not leaving an Out-of-Office reply can definitely put off many of your clients or colleagues.
Rude out-of-office responses are just as bad. Don’t be surprised if you get a Warning on your first day back from your vacation because they are an essential form of communication.
Email is clearly the dominant form of communicating, beating phone use hands down.
Making any of these mistakes might make you seem incompetent and unable to handle important tasks so do your best to avoid them.
Sade Disu is known and sought after for her ability to leverage storytelling, data, and business operations with her innate understanding of the cultural consumers’ lifestyle attitudes.
She attributes this aforementioned attention (press and awards) to her grit for creating cross-cultural content, platform solutions, and activations that engage (what she coins) the ” multi-hyphenated millennial women.”
Her content strategies and live event platforms were deemed unmatched for its convening power of global content, culture, and empowerment according to Forbes, LA Times, Essence, and Black Enterprise. And even more, was given a proclamation, by former Mayor of New York (now Presidential candidate) Michael Bloomberg in 2010.
All in all, Sade has delivered award-winning and has been press ordained (had a 4-page press feature in Black Enterprise and 2-page press feature in Forbes French Edition for her global experiential marketing and digital work across various clients.
Brands like Kimora Lee Simons, Iman Cosmetics, Pikolinos, Zara, Roommate Hotels and USAID, immediately tapped into her three-tier prong approach “community, content, to commerce” when looking to connect with the cultural consumers.
Under her auspice, she managed a team of 25 and built a 10-year-old marketing and digital communication firm, responsible for offline and online platforms that connected brands to consumers organically and authentically.
The results increased brand awareness 8.5 million views; $300+ K in revenue generated per event (total of 3) for project sponsors, and performance beyond the expected for key performance indicators such as newsletter subscribers. Media giants such as Hearst Magazines caught wind of her competencies — the ability to connect to cultural consumers through content and experiential solutions– and immediately hired her agency to build and produce its international spin-off of COSMO (which Disu also helped cultivate and manage editorial teams for).
