Don’t Wait For Responses, Take Action!
Waiting to hear back from a client or coworker can be exhausting, especially if the information you’re hoping to receive is time-sensitive or really important. The worst part is not knowing if they’ve even opened your email or not. You’re tempted to send another email following up, just to see if they’ve skipped over yours on accident.
Instead, you should probably stop right there and get Boomerang.
Boomerang is an app for Gmail that allows you to track whether or not someone has opened up your email. It can even track which links were clicked inside of it. The app does other miraculous things too, such as allow you to schedule out emails in advance, send you reminders when you want to follow up with people, and take messages out of your inbox until you need them again.
One of Boomerang’s best features is to “boomerang” a message back to you after a set amount of time (you choose) when the recipient hasn’t read your email. This takes the guess work out of wondering if the other person has taken the time to look over what you’ve sent.
So the next time you know you’ve got an important email to send and want to be sure that it gets read, check out Boomerang!
