Out of the 147 messages the average email user receives every day, only 12 require “substantial work.” Those 12 messages which require “substantial work” take up approximately 90 minutes per day!
Most people think others read a majority of their email messages around 9AM, however people say they want to read their emails between 5-6AM. You are more likely to get a reply if you send non-marketing emails either before work or during lunch. If you are sending marketing emails, the recommended time to send those is at 6AM.
To grab someone’s attention and increase the probability of a response, use the 7 words on the right in your email titles, and avoid the 7 on the left.
