Is your email inbox stressing you out? It doesn’t have to be that way. Let’s look at some ways you can better use your email to lower your stress and be more productive within your insurance agency.

If you happen to get email via your smartphone, remember that you don’t have to respond right away. And you don’t even have to read the email when it comes through. Finish your task at hand and then, when appropriate, shift your focus to your email and any immediate responses before you return to the office.

Do you only use your vacation responder for vacation? It can be used for so much more than that. Feel free to use this responder if you intend to be in meetings all day or will be away for training. Within your response, you can add something requiring further interaction. It could be a link to a story you find helpful or a specific tip you would recommend. Don’t forget to also include a backup contact if an emergency needs to be handled.

Is your email inbox organized to help better manage your time and responses? Usually, folder features are available through your email’s settings. Once you have taken the time to set up your folder system, you will realize how it helps manage your time and responses.
