Why you should proofread every email before pressing send button

They say,  first impression is the last. I would say every impression matters.
Let's understand it this way
You visited a tea shop,  got your beverage and drank it.
Wow,  this was so refreshing. Didn't you felt good? Didn't you told your friends? Didn't you think of to revisit the same tea shop again?
Of course you did.
Next you visited the same tea shop again hoping to buy some feel good factor over a cup of tea.
Sadly this time tea was cold,  no aroma and only added sugar.
How you felt?
Didn't you asked the tea vendor to change your cup?
Didn't you complained?
Of course you did.
Tea vendor changed your beverage too.
But are you likely to revisit the shop again?
Perhaps you are least likely to visit.
Same thing is true with you business emails and any any email.

A perfectly written email tells the reader about a perfect you.
An email with errors clearly shows either you do not know how to do things or bother least about others.
Why soomeone shall care for your business proposal when you can not take care for your own emails.  How someone can do business with a careless person.
When sending email,  proofread it from the top to bottom.
Make sure email address is correct
Subject line is catchy one and shows the purpose of it.
Email body is well crafted and you summed it up precisely.
Say more in less,  nobody will like to read a lengthy email and clumsy message which does not show a purpose.
If you are sending attachment clearly mention files name and purpose in the email body.
An error free email with precise message in it is a powerful marketing tool to get business and stay in it.
So,  next time when you draft an email,  do not forget to proofread it.

Information War, Personal Security and Me

Too much of anything is just bad. You cannot consume too much in your tummy, you cannot consume too much in your mind. I was never a social media person because if I don't know a person how can I interact and share my personal interests. However, at one point I worked for a social media company and created many accounts, written many social media guides and published online.
The noise that social media creates gives an illusion that you can make big things out of it. Though I never spend many hours on social media but I started sharing content on it, on and off, and with certainty I can say my own sites performed better without social sharing.
From my experiences I found going on many social channels means dilution of ideas. Because I am individual and not a company I cannot go to many social channels and create content. I don't have budget to appoint someone who can work for me on social media. If you are individual blogger like me and creating many social channels for sure…

Is push mail notification a non sense

Automation is good but is it reliable too?
For very long time Android phone was alien to me. But considering public demand of SEND ME Whatsapp rants lastly I invested in this idiot gadget.
Not more than 24 hours and I realized it's a complete waste of money given if you do not take too many photos and if you do not work in an android environment. But anyway hole was already burnt in my pocket.
Only one thing become easy for me that is reading email. I kept only emails on and relied on email notifications. However today no mails popped out. I thought may be everyone celebrating India's Republic Day.
I text message to CEO of reputed company regarding a pending email answer. He is a busy fellow. You can get him easily. Since matter was important I thought to give a text message.
Out of nothing I opened my email and found his reply which he did early morning.
SHOCKED.
Lesson learnt check your mail box manually before texting.
