Have you ever had this happen? You read an email from someone that really impresses you. You are inspired to take action right away and then you realize that the email does not include contact information.
You don't have the desire to go to their site to look it up, so you put it off until later.
Don't let this happen to your prospects!
Today I'll share two tricks to make it easy for your prospects to pick up the phone and give you a call.
I've shared before that saying your phone number at the beginning and again at the end of a voice mail message helps the person on the other end get in contact with you easier. (They don't have to replay your message a number of times to catch your number.)
The same holds true for your email.
Today's 60 Second Trick — Put Your Phone Number in Your “Reply to Address”
Your “from” line in email does not have to be just your name. Make yourself easily accessible! Update your reply address to include your phone number. You can see an example of mine below.
Make Sure Your Signature Line has Your Phone Number Too.
Hopefully you already have a signature line on your email that contains your contact information. If you don't, add that in a few seconds as well. It does not have to be fancy, it just has to be there!
Make It Easy for Them to Find You
The benefit of having your phone number in two places is that you are easy to find. Your number does not have to be looked up. Any time you make it easier on your prospect, they are more likely to pick up the phone.
The from line trick also makes your phone number show in the reader view pane of their email. They can see your phone number without ever opening up your email.
Besides, you can spare 60 seconds to make this quick update right?
