5 Email Templates You Need to Use

Operational Efficiency Expert. Creating ease through systems.

No one – I mean, no one – likes writing out the same information in emails over and over again. Not only is it fundamentally a time waster, but if you’re anything like me, you’re also often trying to remember how you said it that one time when you were particularly thorough and eloquent. And then you spend about ten minutes looking for that specific email rather than just trying to recreate it. See? Giant waste. Save time and frustration by creating email templates to help with your everyday communications.

Traditionally, we’ve written out full email templates to help with workflows and relay important information. However, the game has changed a bit in systems, and you can now create “snippets” or small pieces of text that can be dropped into an existing email body without replacing the whole email. This is available in systems such as Gmail, Streak, and ConvertKit.

If your system doesn’t allow for convenient email template creation, while it’s a little clunkier, I encourage you to still write out the language in a conveniently located digital document or even in a task management system (like ClickUp.)

Below are a few suggestions for templated language to create for your emails.

If you’ve released yourself from the scheduling game by enlisting a scheduling assistant, such as Calendly or Acuity, template the language into a snippet for easily inserting into emails. Multiple meeting options? Create a template for each type of scheduling link to save time hunting down the correct one.

Marketing for Upcoming Events

Running events or webinars take a lot of marketing, and sometimes you just want to drop that information into an email. Create a template of the key event information, including time, date, registration link, etc. 

Lead Magnets or Free Resources

Always giving away valuable content? Create snippets to share your favorite resources with a bit of context and a link. This also works great for affiliate-linked products and services you frequently recommend.

Service Summaries and Descriptions

While our websites are usually comprehensive, there may come a time when someone just needs a quick summary of what you do and how they can work with you. Enter: the email template of service descriptions. Type out your offerings, a short description, and price points. Then when someone asks, you’re ready.

FAQs

Kind of a catchall suggestion here, but if it’s a frequently asked question, then it needs templated language. This could be details about a specific service offering, policies for your programs, or marketing language. These email templates work well to capture those “oh, I like the way I wrote that” moments. 

While you’re in your inbox creating these templates, why not also take a moment to clean it out? These 5 Easy Steps can be done in micro-moments to organize your overwhelming inbox.
