Are your prospects DELETING your sales emails during the morning purge!

By standss - Comments ( 0 ) Wednesday, August 19th, 2015

You greatly increase the chances that your sales email will be deleted (without being read) if you send it in time for the morning purge. In this post we explain what the morning purge is… and what you can do to avoid it.

What is the morning purge?

Recent statistics show that the first thing that people do when they wake up is check their smart phones (after the alarm on the same smart phone wakes them up). Some jump straight to Facebook but many people that you are writing to take the first few minutes to prioritize their emails.

Does this sound familiar?

You wake up. You look at the big list of emails that has landed in your Inbox while you were sleeping.

You’re not awake enough to start working on the big stuff yet but you can get organized for when you get into the office.

So you skim through your emails and delete out the stuff that is not too important. You want a more manageable workload when you get into the office.

You DELETE! You PURGE! … and you’re not alone.

Millions of people do the exact same thing every morning.

Is your email really important enough to survive the morning purge?

If you’re responding to something that someone specifically asked for then your email is probably going to survive but…

If you’re sending out more cold-calling like sales and marketing emails while people are sleeping (or after they have left work) then chances are they’re being deleted without being read.

What you need to do to get your sales and marketing emails past the morning purge?

If sales and marketing is part of your job description then you NEED to get those cold-call-like emails opened and read.

The secret to surviving the morning purge is simple.

Make sure that your email gets delivered to your customers and prospects AFTER the morning purge.

This means that the best time to send your emails are after they have left home and some time while they are in the office.

But be careful… because there is another purge session that emails go through immediately after lunch… so don’t send your emails during lunch time either.
