4 Tips for Busy Creatives

How to Take Control of a Messy Inbox

24-Nov 2017

Picture this: You’ve just returned from a well-earned break, but before you can get stuck into any revenue-generating work, you need to tackle your inbox. However you’re not yet working with cloud-based software, so you’ve got various CC and BCC threads scattered among important client conversations - not to mention the spam that’s coming in too!

With the right smart platform, you can avoid this scenario from becoming your reality by setting up an automated team inbox that acts as a central hub for your entire company to share and store all client-related communications. That way, you don’t need to waste time (that should be spent on large scale projects) digging for information that’s buried in your inbox.

So - here are four ways of using smart automation technology to streamline your communications and declutter your inbox:

1. Increase Transparency

With a Team Inbox that archives and stores all of your client-related communication in one place, you’ll always have access to the information you need - right at your fingertips. You’ll be able to find old emails through a global search field to ensure no message ever goes unanswered - especially if a team member leaves the company or if you’re too busy to respond.

This also means that your entire team is on the same page when it comes to a particular client relationship, and you don’t have to risk looking unprofessional when an email gets lost among all the clutter.

2. Drive Revenue

Opening your inbox after a relaxing vacation is something many professionals are reluctant to do - but not if they're going to make money by doing it!

With the right smart platform, you’ll be able to keep track of every minute you spend in your inbox with an automatic time tracking feature that captures every second you spend responding to clients or opening requests and instantly convert that into revenue. This means you can make more money simply by opening your inbox and sifting through your email - how greats that!

3. Sync Accounts

Automatically sync your Google, Microsoft Exchange, Outlook, and Office 365 accounts with a smart platform that supports email integration. You’ll be able to import all of your contacts, calendar invites, and emails into one automated dashboard and convert them into tasks without the need for any manual data entry. The best part? You won't need to remember several different logins because now, you can live and work out of one streamlined inbox.

4. Mobile Integration

If you’re forever travelling between meetings then you should invest in a smart platform that syncs all your data across to a mobile device. That way,  you can send and receive emails, log time against them, and see your entire communications history while working on the fly!
