It’s an Essential Tool at Work — Now It’s an Essential Tool at Home, Too
If you’re in the marketing field, you’re no stranger to the world of mass email. At work your mass emailing software allows you to contact leads, nudge would-be customers through your sales funnel, and build customer loyalty. It’s a powerful tool that delivers powerful results, but have you ever considered how bringing mass email to your personal life could streamline your out of office activities as well?
In this article, we’ll be going over 4 creative uses for mass email software that marketing gurus and marketing newbies alike are sure to love, including organizing:
- Birthday parties
- Wedding planning
- Family functions
- Job inquiries
1. Plan Birthday Parties for Yourself (and Others) with Ease
It’s hard to say when — High school? College? — but after a certain point, people stop going out of their way to plan birthday parties for you. When you consider how much fun it is to bring all of your favorite people together, it seems like a shame, doesn’t it? Whether you’re planning a birthday party for yourself, planning a birthday party for someone else, or just planning a party to get the whole gang back together, sending a mass email is a quick and efficient way to get all of the details to everyone on your guest list.
2. Take a Little Bit of the Hassle Out of Wedding Planning
There is not a single person (or engaged person, or married person) out there who would claim that wedding planning is easy. It’s not! Between choosing a dress and choosing a venue and keeping your entire guest list updated with the latest news, it’s a lot of work. Creating separate mass email lists for your wedding party, the bridesmaids, the groomsmen, and the entire guest list can make communication a little bit less of a headache.
3. Contact Your Entire Family at Once When Planning Family Functions
You love your family, but it’s not easy to get them all in the same place. Even contacting everyone is difficult. You might have a couple of aunts and uncles on Facebook, a handful of cousins who snapchat you, a group text between your siblings… yikes. Rather than reach out via multiple platforms when planning a family event, get the details to everyone at once with a mass email.
4. Improve the Efficiency of Your Job Hunt
Is it time for the next big step in your career? That’s exciting, but job hunting can also be stressful if you don’t stay organized. Luckily, some mass email software has a mail merge options, which means you can store essential information about each prospective employer — contact name, company name, a few thoughtful questions, etc. — in a spreadsheet and automate the inquiry-sending process. That’s much more efficient than copying and pasting the same email over and over, which will help you land your dream job faster.
Mass email isn’t a tool that needs to be left in the office. Whether you’re planning a big event or a big career move, mass email can help you stay organized and efficient throughout the process.
