I kept writing my clients' emails as usual.
Every time I perfected one… I'd turn it into a template and put in a folder.
That way, the next time I needed that particular email, I could just grab the template, pop in the "variables" (like the recipient's name, location, what they ordered, etc.), and send it off.
So instead of spending 10 or 15 minutes agonizing over each word, I could fire off an email in under one minute… and know that every word was perfect!
Over a 6-month period, I created more than 55 email templates for just about every situation a virtual assistant might run into.
And after that, I went from spending up to 3 hours a day writing emails… to only spending 15 minutes TOTAL each day!
It was such a relief! I was finally able to keep up with my workload… and just as importantly, I was able to spend a few hours each day doing exactly what I wanted to do, instead of stressing out in front of a keyboard.
