#EMAIL: Want to get some responses to your GMAIL? Try these tips!


Boomerang, which makes an awesome email tool for Gmail users, studied emails that got the most responses.

• Use shorter sentences with simpler words. Third grade reading level works best.

• Include 1 to 3 questions in your email — max.

• Subject lines should be 3 to 4 words.

• Use a slightly positive or slightly negative tone. Both outperform a completely neutral tone.

• Take a stand. Opinionated messages see higher response rates than objective ones.

• Try to keep messages between 50-125 words.

So, if you are wondering why people aren't responding to your emails, consider what you are saying, how you are saying it, if you are being mean, rough, tough or otherwise UNCOOL like a FOOL to whomever you are sending some stuff too!
