Don’t Offer If You Don’t Plan On Responding

I’ve recently contacted a couple of companies via e-mail. And guess what? I’ve gotten no response.

Unresponsiveness is a personal PET PEEVE. Along with companies who only unlock one of the two side by side doors. If there’s TWO DOORS they should both be operational! [/rant]

If you are a business owner and do not plan on responding to e-mails don’t put your e-mail address on your business card or website. Do not have a fancy contact form if no one is checking those messages and responding.

I strongly dislike talking on the phone. So that’s why I’ve never listed my phone number on my business cards. Will I lose some business because some people would much prefer to pick up the phone? Yes. But I maintain my peace by drawing boundaries.

Thoughts? Let us know in the comments.

I used email A LOT when I first got into business. I have come to find out my business has exploded now with picking up the phone to talk to people. As for being on the recipient end of no response, I cannot stand calling someone and getting an automated system that will not get me to a real person.
