Email Aug 11, 2020

All my clients, old and new, contact me by email (even visitors of my website) and this is really how I prefer being contacted. I haven’t received a single phone call from a client for a long time and I have never been a heavy user of Instant Messaging.

Email Aug 11, 2020

Occasional calls, but mostly email. I would say more than 99%.

Fax? Aug 11, 2020

I wonder, if anyone gets new offers from clients by fax now? It's allways such an intrigue when you are getting a fax. And you never miss it... I mean the sound.

Email, please Aug 11, 2020

Almost all my clients contact me using email, and I consider it the best way, since it allows them to include all information about the project (field, type of content, volume, deadline, rates, reference files, etc.) in a single communication.

I confess I hate other ways for work-related contacts, such as Skype and WhatsApp. They generate a long conversation that can be solved with one first email, one reply and one confirmation.

Maybe I'm an old-fashioned guy...

Agreed. I'm also a big stickler for using email for the benefit of having a record. In fact, if I have a phone call or any other communication, I always send a follow-up email as a record and to make sure that what I said is what they heard and vice versa.

E-mail Aug 11, 2020

I don't usually answer phone calls from unknown numbers/contacts. I much prefer communicating by e-mail, as it gives me time to think about my responses.

Email Aug 11, 2020

I love email. I love silence, minus cell phone alerts, which are necessary.
