I first heard about using templates at a work conference years ago, but dismissed it because I thought it was too impersonal.
Now I realize using email templates help me in so many ways.
- Saves Time: Since many of the emails I get are similar (meetings/guest posts/advertising), copying and pasting from my template drastically reduces my email time.
- Makes Work More Efficient: I've been able to schedule things faster with templates.
- Weeds Out Junk Email Quickly: My template asks like a filter so I dont have to mess around with time wasters.
With the time I save, I can connect better with others.
If you're a similar boat, here are some ways I've been able to improve my emails and I have a couple of my personal templates I use.
I hope it helps you simplify work.
Between podcast interviews, online networking, and business calls, I have a ton of emails about setting up meetings.
To get the meeting scheduled sooner, I've found that giving them two times that work has cut down on the back and forth.
Sometimes, though, I need give them my schedule link so they can choose a time that's convenient for both of us.
Calendar and Scheduling Tools
For podcast interviews, I use Calendly as my scheduling tool. It's been a tremendous help. There is a free and paid version so you can try it out and upgrade if needed.
Guest Post/Article Submissions
Since I own a few sites, I get a flood of guest post requests and submissions.
I'm humble and grateful for the response, but I also want to be balanced and make sure I respect readers with sharing only great content.

As you can see in the template, I've went ahead and created a guest post guideline page. While it hasn't stopped the emails, it has filtered out some follow-ups.
I work with brands and companies who are interested in advertising on the site. My goal is to connect readers with high quality companies that offer something useful and helpful.
