The Importance of Being Always Available via Email

how email is read: webmail, desktop, mobile

Email is still one of the most popular modes of internet communication, but the sphere of its usage has slightly changed. Nowadays we get information about our friends and family mostly through social networks, whilst email is left for business communications. This business orientation has led to the increased use of email on mobile devices, because in the modern highly-competitive business world it’s really important to be always online and take action immediately with important messages.

The comScore research shows that 89.6 million Americans used their mobile phone to access email for work or personal purposes during the three-month average period ending November 2011, growing 28% from the previous year and representing an additional 19.5 million mobile email users.

Over half of “mobile workers” check their email on waking or immediately after getting dressed, – discovered May 2011 iPass survey.

Nielsen research on what mobile users do online showed email to be the most popular activity, accounting for 38.5% of mobile internet time.

Today email on mobile devices is an integral part of doing business. If you manage your email on a mobile device effectively, you may improve your business communications and get constant access to the information you need. When you answer your business emails immediately, you save seconds that create a competitive advantage in our rapidly moving world.
