In the work place, a lot of things are happening during the week, and sometimes, you and your colleagues can get so busy, that even some quite important things can easily be forgotten in all the stress and rush.
Even the most experienced people at the company can forget things once in a while, it is actually pretty normal, but obviously, it is also something you want to avoid at all costs. ⛔️
Reasons for feeling the need to send reminder emails:
- Important things might have been forgotten before 😳
- You and your time might have been busy lately 😓
- Your coworker might be new and inexperienced in his job 🆕
- You feel like it is a nice thing to do to help everyone out 😇
So how do you make sure to that this happens as rarely as possible? Well first of all, it is all about being helpful.
If you know one of your coworkers have something important coming up, and they are a bit busy, don’t be afraid to send them a reminder email, just to remind them of what they have coming up.
This could help them out significantly. 👏
Here is a template of a reminder email you can send to a busy coworker, which you can use or get inspiration from! 👇
I have noticed that you have been quite busy lately, so i just wanted to remind you, that you have (EVENT) coming up on (DATE), just in case your focus has been elsewhere lately. If you need any help with preparing or anything, then don’t hesitate contacting me, and i will see what i can do to help!
Best of luck!
Kind regards, (YOUR NAME)“
Benefits of using email
The benefits of using emails for these kind of messages is, that emails typically are a more formal and professional way of communicating with people, so if you don’t know them that well, emails can make for a more professional message.
Also, most of us have a email dedicated to our work, which allows us to keep our work mails and our personal ones separated, so they don’t get mixed up, or we don’t have to be reminded of work in the weekends, holidays or after work hours! 😎
Always remember this when dealing with emails to customers or colleagues:
- Emails are more formal and professional than f.x WhatsApp ✅
- Always include nice greetings at the beginning and the end ✅
- Your work emails reflects your position and job profile ✅
If you like the notifications you get about your messages from WhatsApp, and get a good feeling from knowing if your messages have been received or even read, then why not add this feature to your Gmail account?🤗
With Mailtrack, you can get these read notifications, so you can follow the conversation closely, and see if your mails are reaching the desired destination!
This allows you to:
- Get closer to the conversation ✅
- Follow up on your messages when needed ✅
