Bounce-Back, Bounce-Back, Bounce-Back

If you are getting a lot of bounce-back emails there’s a simple way to cut out a lot of them.

You know what I’m talking about; you send someone an informational email and they feel the need to respond, “I liked this” or “Wow! That’s cool.”

The email they send back is just one more thing you have to deal with.

You can cut out a lot of bounce-backs by simply adding, “No Reply Necessary” to the subject line.

When receivers see the “No Reply” message they automatically understand that your message is informational, not actionable.

And yes, there will be some people who feel the need to respond, but if you can cut out 30-50% of the useless bounce-backs you’re ahead of the game.
