Guest Post @ Lawyerist: Send SMS Via Email for Faster Responses

The trouble with email these days is that everyone is getting so darn much of it that a lot of it gets ignored. But what if you have an urgent message that needs to be read NOW?

Studies show that, increasingly, the go-to technology for reaching someone quickly and getting a response is SMS (popularly known as a text message). With more and more people constantly connected to the grid via their smartphones, it makes sense: a text message will get attention and response more quickly because of the medium’s built-in immediacy.

The good news is, you don’t have to pick your own cell phone (and incur your carrier’s charges) to send a text message. You can do it via Outlook 2010, which has the advantage of allowing you to keep all your messages (email and text) in one easy-to-search file.

I spend an inordinate amount of my time playing with computers and attempting to explain technology to lawyers and law office staff. It's not always easy, but someone's got to do it.
