Whatsapp, Facebook Inbox, WeChat, Viber, gmail, ymail, you name them, that is what has been made available at our finger tips.  You ignore an email that a friend sent, you then receive whatsapp asking if you did go through it.  You ignore whatsapp, the moment you update your status someone dash into your wall and say: “I am still waiting for your response on the email I sent”.  No more excuse, no place to hide, that is how connected we have become and ignoring any means of communication is inexcusable in today’s life.  Tiring as it may be to respond, this can also be a great platform to grow and expand your business by following the steps below:

Check your emails consistently

Make it an obligation to check your emails on regular basis and stick to the programme set.  You can check your emails three times a day or keep the email page online as long as you are on the internet.  That way you will not miss the email. 

Filter the emails that you consider a spam

There are some emails that are sent regularly yet you have no interest in them, you can filter those emails whereby they can be deleted before getting to your inbox.  These may include emails that you cannot unsubscribe although you may not avoid those emails of 419 scams with people stranded in the refugee camp needing to transfer millions into your account, those you just have to be careful with.

Do not presume the content

You need to read every message that come through even if it is from your acquaintances.   You might miss important message by assuming the content of the email without going through it. 

Respond promptly to every message

Whoever has sent you a message they do expect a response, and some expect it ASAP as they need to take next step based on the response you give.  Imagine a client who sent you a request for  a quotation on something needed urgently and you respond after 3 days.  That client may have found help somewhere by then, remember you are so hooked on the net that your mo movement is monitored.  You may claim that you did not see the email but the client may see you on whatsapp or on facebook.  Act promptly!
