Posted by Jason Ephraim on June 1, 2016

Do people really enjoy getting email from you? Check out the top 6 mistakes that lead to people dreading emails from people.   6 Reasons Why people Hate Receiving Your Emails from Jason Ephraim Do any sound familiar? Don’t worry! We’ve included some tips to help you fix them. Summary: People hate it when they ask you something, only to have them waiting for an answer that may never come. Example: Them: “Do you have the report ready for Friday?” You: “I’ve been out of the office today. Super busy!” The Fix: Even if it’s a quick “okay” answer people directly, or let them know when to expect an answer.  You sandwich what you actually need from recipients to the point it’s confusing or easily missed. Example: You: “I’ve been really busy gathering the data for the annual report. It’s tough to find the data for index 23. Can you find it? I’ll be working on the rest of the report…..” The Fix: Repeat your request or expand on it in a separate (preferably, close to the beginning or end) part of the message You constantly use email when it would be faster or more clear to use chat, a phone call, or in person. Example: Any email chain that starts growing beyond a few back and forth, or involves more than a couple people The Fix: Don’t be afraid to ask to move the conversation to a better medium.

Why we decided to give April Fools’ Day a pass

Posted by Jason Ephraim on April 2, 2016

It seems like every year, the internet gets a little bit more tired of April Fools’ Day. It’s not that the ideas are any less funny, absurd, or creative. Quite the contrary – I find it amazing that so many major brands are still able to come up with such outlandish and surprising ideas that, in many cases, are just crazy enough to be plausible.     But, the problem is, you can’t take an event like April Fools’ and commercialize it much before it loses it’s meaning. It’s just not as fun when you know what to expect, when to expect it, and are bombarded by it from every source on the web. It’s hard to laugh when fifty people are telling you a joke at the same time, shouting over each other to be heard – even if they are all funny.   So, rather than enter the shouting match, ourselves… We decided to take a break from April Fools’ this year, and focus on continuing to work on improving our email client even more. Maybe all April Fools’ Day needs is a break, itself? Maybe more brands and media outlets would do it a favor by opting out, at least until it has a chance to become unexpected that they would participate? I’m not sure. But, I do feel like we made the right choice this year in avoiding it and I hope our users and fans will agree with me. Have a wonderful Friday, and enjoy your weekend! Best, Jason Ephraim   P.S. before…
