I receive loads of emails every day - and I suspect most of you do as well. Many of these are 'junk' mail (actually MOST of these are junk mail) and I quickly read the first couple of lines, decide whether they are just a newsletter or sales blurb, then delete them without opening them.
I've now realised that many of those 'junk/sales newsletters', are being made personal further into the body of the email.
And that is where they say, "Dear (add your own name here!), CONGRATULATIONS etc, etc, etc".
I now make sure I open and read each email I receive.
Obviously I don't open any attachments within the email (which would leave me open to viruses etc) unless I'm sure I know what it is (not just where it comes from - but an attachment that I am expecting) and the majority of mail is perfectly safe to 'read', then delete or keep as required.
So, look out for those daily/weekly/monthly/quarterly newsletters, ladies and gentlemen - your winning name may be in one of them any day now!!
Good luck. Penny Harper
