How to Get Noticed in Email


In our house-buying/house-selling processes, there’s lots to keep up with. D.J. and I have missed a couple of important tasks that the agents had to remind us about. This is part of a series of tools via @BethBuysAHouse .

We’ve acted on the first requests most of the time and didn’t need to be reminded of anything more than once. But if you deal with people who just don’t respond when you need something, here are a couple of ways to get noticed.

Use Loom for Video Email

When you really need to catch people’s attention, there’s nothing like video email. Loom is a free tool that lets you go to a page and record a message in a matter of seconds, and then you can also track views and more. Right now it’s a Chrome plugin, but I can’t wait until the desktop version comes out.

Here’s a sample of what you might do if someone needs to get information to you.

Do a Little Ditty

If all else fails and you need to get someone to sign a contract, use the Ditty app to create a little video and song from any sentence. Just write something, choose a song, and Ditty sings it for you!
