I recently added my email address to every page on this blog. Very soon after, lots of you asked me why I did it and what the results have been. So, here’s your answer.
Why I value your emails so much
Ever since I started this blog, I have published my email address (and my office address / phone number) on my contact page. This means I was already used to receiving email from readers.
My decision to publish my email address on every page, was to make it easier for you to contact me and also to demonstrate that I welcome and value your emails.
What type of emails do readers send me?
When people email me, they tend to do so because they either want to share something with me (around 95%) or to make an unrealistic request for free, specific marketing advice (5%). I can’t do the latter, it simply doesn’t scale because of the time required.
The variety of emails I receive, is huge. For example:
- I get emails from readers who want to update me on the progress of their businesses and emails that let me know when a reader has spotted a typo.
- I get emails asking if I will cover certain topics and emails thanking me for something a reader learned from the blog.
- I get emails asking why there are no advertisements here and emails from people who want me to share their stories with you.
A wide variety of emails, from all kinds of people. I value them enormously!
The value of a 1-to-1 connection
Although every email I receive is different, they ALL have one very important thing in common: They open up an intimate, 1-to-1 communication between you and me.
If you want to connect with me, you are welcome to do so and it has never been easier. I look forward to hearing from you.
