To whom it may concern…

I’m busy clearing down a mountain of emails after a long weekend.

Each of these emails was sent with some purpose .. a work request, keeping me in the loop of something, providing me with valuable information or hoping that I will be prompted to do something.

Each of these emails was sent with a plan..someone decided on the content and the format and hit that ‘send’ button.

In the middle of all of this I get a “to whom it may concern” email from someone who is looking for Fuzion or one of our clients to sponsor their event in some way.

Technically they have done their job.. they compiled a list of people/companies to target, they gathered their email list, they worked on the ‘copy’ for their email and pressed ‘send‘.

When I get a ‘to whom it may concern‘ it makes it really easy to hit the ‘delete’ button.

Hi Greg‘ will work much better..go on… I’ve said it before, personalise – it” easy!

    Personalise definitely the way to go. I seem to spend a lot of time lately deleting irrelevant emails. Are personal emails becoming a thing of the past?
