Be clever – and professional – with your out of office message
We’ve finally made it to summer and a lot of us are getting ready for well-deserved vacations. Whether you are heading out of the office for a few days or a few weeks, it’s essential to set up your out of office autoresponder email message before shutting down your computer and throwing on those flip flops.
Since keeping your customers informed while staying professional is super important, we’ve tracked down a brilliant mailbird article that offers seven great examples and templates you can use to create your out of office message. The article also offers ways to drive traffic, network and improve engagement all while you have your feet up or chase kids around the swimming pool.
An additional tip from your friends at Bridgewater Bank… we’ve noticed from experience that our standard out of office message in Outlook defaults to font size 8… which is very tiny. After you type up your message, always double check the font and font size so your out of office message is easy to read (and ensure you have the correct dates entered).
