Writing Out of Office Emails That Convert

Offer an immediate solution to most, some of the most common problems.

Once a year most of us we get vacations right? and one of the first things we do before leaving the company is to set up an out-of-office email. An out-of-office email if you don’t know, it’s just an automatic response, if someone writes to you, they’ll get an instant email saying that you’re not there. It’s very easy to set up, you can just go to the settings in your email provider and most of them have a pre-made way to set up an easy out-of-office email.

Today we want to show you four things you can do with an out of office email to make it work for you while you’re not in the office. Welcome to Success. ok so the first thing you want to do is for sure let people know when you’re gonna be coming back, it’s fair enough for them to find out that you’re not there but they would like to know when they can reach you again, so make sure you have your email saying if you’re coming back in January 15 I will be back here in January 15 so that way people will know at least that if they cannot count on you during that time they will know when to expect to see you again, or to talk to you again

The next thing you can do is to make sure you delegate your duties or your email account to someone else, so you’re not only telling people I will be back in January 15 now you’re telling them you can also contact Steve for any urgent matters and forward that email to the right person and also add that email into your own automatic response so people will know what to do and who to contact in case they cannot reach you

the next thing you can do is to offer an immediate solution to most, some of the most common problems so you’re already telling them that you will be back in January 15 they can contact Steve however, if they want a quota they can go to the quota generator in the website and get one straightaway. So try to give them a solution to one of the most common things that you already know they’ll be asking you

the last thing you can do which is a bit of a cheeky thing to do is also offer a pitch in the end of your email, you already tell them where you’re gonna be coming back you telling them who they can contact in case you’re not there and also where they can find the immediate solution to some of the most common problems. Now you can push your product a little bit further by saying if you want to know more, if we want to hear about the success of our product go and check our blog and the customer success stories that we have over there

If you put together all these four things into one email you have something more engaging, something that people will read and not get mad because you’re not there and on vacation. Let us know what are you using for your out of office email
