Do you know how many emails are received per day by the average office worker?
Answer: 121 emails. (Source)
This statistic doesn’t shock many people but as we speak emails are flying around above us. Around 205 billion emails every 24 hours are being sent and received (Source). It can be a noisy world with all this data arriving and departing from our smartphones and computers every minute of the day.
Too much noise…
With all this noise, making sure you’re heard is critical to achieving success.
One of the biggest reasons that so many people have jumped onto the email scheduling train is in the pursuit of improving their response conversion rate. There are many different situations you can begin to use an email scheduling tool, here are some good examples:
- Your colleague has been on holiday for 2-weeks and they will return to a full inbox
- Your boss doesn’t arrive in the office until 10AM and you want to be first on his list.
- Your client is UK based and you’re based in the US, so times zones make it difficult.
- You don’t want to disturb someone nearby but you need to update them.
All of these situations arise when your goal is to hit the other person’s inbox at the perfect time. Scheduling your email to land at the exact date and time can give you the confidence that your reply conversion rate will be much higher.
Email scheduling currently involves a tough process of downloading other applications then installing them into your operating system or even adding browser extensions. For Newton, the email scheduling is embedded into our apps across all devices from day one.
