And….here it is…the final #30ReasonsForNoReply post.
I know you want to sound professional, but sometimes that can make you sound unapproachable or like someone they may not want to work with. Day 30’s reason for them not getting back to you is that you sounded to formal in your email.
I know I’ve been guilty of this one. I worked for the military and government for 25 years where the style of writing was more formal. I carried that with me when I moved into the entrepreneurial world. Some people were honest with me and said that they felt like I wasn’t approachable because my emails sounded too formal. Once we talked in person or on the phone they got to hear my personality, but who knows how many potential clients I lost until I realized that. So definitely sound professional, but don’t forget to add your personality 🙂
