6 ways to Optimize Emails

There are times when people get so much of mail everyday that they hardly go through each and every email thoroughly, and on an average take less than a minute to read every message. If they are not able to identify the purpose of the message, they either delete it or leave it ignored for days in the inbox.

Ways to ensure that the email gets read

Below mentioned are the six steps that ensure that the email messages are read and get the attention they deserve.

Make the purpose of the message clear: When people receive your message, they should be able to decipher the overall purpose of the content. If the content is irrelevant and confusing, the recipient would be tempted to remove it as soon as he can. A subject heading such as ‘Action Requested’ or ‘Response Requested’ should be included in the body of the message, or the due date if applicable should be a part of the subject lines.

Tell recipients what action you want them to take: You need to clearly mention in your mail about what actions you want your recipients to take. You need to be specific and should put all the material that is related to the action in one place. You not only need to specify the link between the action and the recipient’s objectives but also give due date.

Provide proper data and documents: You need to make sure that the recipients are sent all the information that they need for completing an action or to respond successfully to your request. The supporting information you send can be in the form of an attached document or in the body of the mail.

Send the message only to relevant recipients: The message should only be sent and targeted to the appropriate recipients. When you are entering the names on the ‘To’ line, you need to be thoughtful and respectful. Thus, not only should the objectives of the recipient relate to the email but the recipient should also be responsible for the action in the Subject line.

Use the CC line wisely: No reply or action should be expected from the people whose names are mentioned in the CC line; they are only expected to read the message. However, these individuals should in some way or the other be related to the overall objectives. If you are not sure whether the mail pertains to the person’s objectives, you can ask the person whether he would like to receive your mail on the topic.

Ask final questions before you click Send: Before you send the message, you need to look back and ask yourself whether you have clarified the purpose, whether you have included supporting information and mentioned a clear subject line, whether you are sending the message to the correct recipients, and whether you have run a spelling and grammar check.

By following the guidelines, you can ensure that you and your team are perfectly focused on meaningful objectives, without creating an email overload.

How to Optimize and boost up performance of ASUS EEE PC

ASUS, the maker of the world’s best selling and most award winning motherboards and chips, is a leading corporation in the digital era. With a broad range of products that also includes Laptops, Notebooks, Netbooks, multimedia, graphics cards and displays, desktop PCs, Servers, wireless device solutions, mobile phones and networking devices.ASUS, is driven by innovation and committed to provide quality. ASUS designs and manufactures products that meet the needs of today’s digital home and enterprise users. ASUS won 3,268 awards in 2009, and is widely credited for revolutionizing the PC industry with the EEE PC.

ASUS EEE PC is the two pound sub notebook computer; and I think it is one of the best tech gadget buys since my computer addiction began 10 years ago. As a proud user yourself, you will find it with a little effort and addition of a few extra dollars the ASUS EEE PC may have your full-sized laptop gathering dust.

Most often we need to install third party tweaks/software for boosting up performance of computers which should be compatible for particular model/product. Here we go for boosting-up performance of the ASUS EEE PC:

Step One

Please don’t take it in other way. I know not using an antivirus is security vulnerable and dangerous for your business-critical data and safety of your important information, which are not-to-expose outsiders. It can be harmful for your PC/Notebook. But the reason behind my point is that antivirus is resource consuming software so it can slow down your computer. If you want to use antivirus than use but you should disable its auto protect feature so it won’t scan at time of launching applications/programs.

You can also use CCleaner software for removing internet temporary files and cache which is also another source of viruses.

Step Two

Adjust your ASUS EEE PC’s virtual memory to meet your needs. Follow the below steps to do so:

Go to Control Panel then Click on System icon > Click on Advanced Tab > Click on Settings button > Performance > Change. Enter your initial memory size and maximize size for your virtual memory. It will display the message for system restarting for taking changes effect.

Step Three

Download plug-ins for Mozilla Firefox designed for compact computers and easier navigation. Some names to use: “Grab and Drag” and the “Little Fox” theme.

Step Four

Avoid software upgradation. Memory Space is precious with the ASUS EEE PC and most software upgrades, except the BIOS, is not necessary because it takes significant space.

Step Five

Upgrade the memory to 1 GB for optimal web browsing and overall speedy performance of the ASUS EEE PC.

Step Six

One of the main reasons behind slow performance and unnecessary resource consumption is background services. You can free some necessary and must-be-required resources on your computer for running your operating system and applications smoothly by ending some unnecessary Services. To terminate such service follow the below steps:

Launch task manager by pressing Ctrl+ Alt + Delete button simultaneously and then click on task manager then click on particular services which is consuming maximum and unnecessary memory space. Right click on the services you want to close and click end task.

Step Seven

By installing the Startup Cleaner software you can also see what programs start automatically with windows which you do not want and optionally disable selected items.

Because it takes more time at system boot up time and causes delay to launch operating system properly to work hassle-free.

So, you can get the best performance from your ASUS system by following above mentioned steps.
