One Thing: Mind Your Manners
Our One Thing series is all about fitting an action into your day that is fast, efficient, and hopefully, effective for your business. Today, always remember to mind your manners when interacting with business associates via email.
You never know who is going to be your next great business connection - that person who is the source of valuable information or customer base or can lead you to another important connection. Therefore, when using email correspondence, take a minute to make sure to thank someone who has spent time on a lengthy email or email exchange full of information that they have generously sent off to you. This not only acknowledges that the email was received, but it shows that you are gracious and respectful of others. In a world where digital information is flying, it takes only a few seconds to send out a quick "thank you!" to someone who has helped you out.
