Set a dead line in your email. Simply state you need an answer by this afternoon, or in the morning. That way, people are more prone to answer right away.


Use Specific Words

Don’t use words like, “I’m just…” or “If it’s not a problem…” Be specific and ask for a direct answer. People are more likely to respond faster.


Use the Right Words

Don’t use the words “urgent” or “please help” and don’t use exclamation points. These are classic ways spammers send out mail. A great alternative is the word “important.” Type it into the subject line and use it sparingly.


Keep It Short

Most people spend two to three minutes reading an email. If you have something truly important to send, attach it as a document. That way, the recipient can read it later.


Text Them

I didn’t see the fun of texting until I actually tried it. Now, I text everyone. Texting is quick, private, and easy. In general, people text you almost as soon as they receive the text.


Social Networking Works

Don’t have a cell phone number, but need to get in touch with him or her right now? Send a message to Facebook, Twitter, or some other social network system. These are great ways to get a message through.


Use a Chat System

Instant chat is available on most email systems, such as Gmail. If you need a quick, short response, chat works great if you are at your computer. People see it instantly and can respond with a quick, “yes” or “no.” immediately.

Which of these instant answers do you use the most? Tell us about it!
