  • I love the professional resources you include in your round-ups, Katya! The hashtags and the six online marketplace listings are so helpful. Even though I’m not offering freelance services, it’s a great place for me to find talent whenever I need work done on the blog.

    I don’t know about the e-mail etiquette practices from C&C, though. My main issue is with point one. If it’s a completely cold call type e-mail, yes, keep things easy and totally pro. But if you’re familiar with the personality of who you’re speaking to (or have done a bit of research on them- which you should be doing), keep things personable. I can’t even imagine interacting with some people in a staccato manner. I think this is where personal judgement comes into play.

    We’ve come a long way from the very rigid business structures established decades before this generation. As long as you know how to be strong and firm, there’s nothing wrong with injecting some personality into your email, especially when you’re an influencer and your business IS your personality and creativity.
