Summary transcript for 16 May 2013 #AWCchat: Email Productivity

Thanks to everyone who participated in our 54th #AWCChat on Twitter, about how to efficiently handle your email (and yes, it’s a challenge for all of us. You are not alone.)

Here is what we discussed:

1)  Why do you think so many of us struggle w/groaning piles of email? It’s NOT because we are lazy or stupid, either.

2)  What is your process for handling email? Certain times of day/when they come in? On phone or desktop?

3)  How can you keep stuff out of your IN box to start with? Let’s talk about filters & Unsubscribing.

4)  What is ONE thing you’d like to do, starting today, to more efficiently handle your email?

Don’t miss all of the helpful how-to Resource links we tweeted, either.

Summary transcript for 23 Feb 2012 #AWCchat: organizing your office

Thanks to everyone who participated in our twelfth #AWCChat on Twitter, on the topic of organizing your office and/or work space.

This chat was different than our usual format of four questions – we asked for people’s problems and then tried to solve them, or point them to good resources.  Most discussion centered around:

1)   Help for the “stackers” and their piles

2)   Pinterest boards that inspire organizing ideas

3)   Why “admin time” is key to sticking with any organizational effort

4)   Focus on the 6 Most Important Things every day

5)   Email management tips for that magical IN Box Zero

**  On Chirpstory – the summary transcript for 23 Feb chat on organizing your office (and work.)

The next #AWCChat is scheduled for 1 March 2012, on the topic of getting sponsorships for your event or project.

Thanks to everyone who participated in our second #AWCChat on Twitter.

There were four questions for discussion during this chat:

1) What do you use to optimize your website/blog for mobile devices? Plugins? Software?

2) If your boss or Board haven’t bought into the importance of mobile, what are their reasons?

3) Please share your tips for making your email marketing messages mobile-friendly (short Subject lines, white space, etc.)

4) Are you using QR codes or Microsoft Tags in your print communications, signage, etc.? What do you want people to do when they scan it?
