How Email Templates Mean a More Productive Workday

You’re sitting at your desk, browsing your inbox and a feeling of workload overwhelm washes over. You’ve got dozens of client messages competing for your attention, not to mention a handful of client inquiries just waiting for a response. You set out to tackle your inbox, and suddenly half the day is gone.

We’ve ALL been in this scenario, and after talking to designers about what drains their time the most, email was the unanimous answer. According to the Harvard Business Review, emails consume 28% of our workday—that’s over one-fourth of our working hours! No one has that kind of time to spend, especially as a small business. That’s why we created our Client Email Templates custom written for interior designers.

As we began dreaming up new IDCO Studio product launches, we wanted to create tools to help streamline designers’ daily workflow. More than just productivity hacks, but actual tools that offload hours of work and become essential components in your business. Ready for the task, our incredible in-house copywriters crafted 28 fill-in-the-blank emails (packaged neatly in a Google Document) for you to use + reference in every step of the design process. We’re talking EVERY part of the process, from the initial inquiry to the final goodbye. These inbox-ready emails are a significant step toward a seamless and efficient experience for both you and your clients.

When it comes time to tackle those unanswered emails, it’s as simple as copying/pasting the appropriate email, filling in the blank, and sending! No more staring at a blank cursor or searching for the right words. As they say, time is money, and you deserve to spend more of your time doing what you do best.

Q: Are the emails just outlined or completely written out?

A: The emails are entirely scripted, but you’ll want to carefully read each one and edit to fit your business model.

Q: What if my client process is different than what is laid out?

A: You can easily reorder the email sequence to what fits your client needs.

Q: Are these email newsletters?

A: No. These emails are meant to be sent directly to your clients from your email to guide them through the full interior design project.
