For many of food truck vendors, your inbox is a source of embarrassment: it’s large, disorganized, and full of unanswered email. Try these simple tips to stop the shame spiral and better manage your food truck email inbox:
- Save, but don’t over-file. Rely on your search function to find old email. The time you spend deciding where to put an email — and then later trying to remember what folder it’s in — could be spent on replying to a new catering request.
- Keep only one email per topic. There’s no need to keep all of the emails that are part of an email string if the last email has the chain of responses in it.
- Do daily upkeep. Spend a few moments each day getting rid of emails you don’t need.
