I've been told that the amount of emails was cause for confusion. In addition, people are using a wide variety of methods of contact (including social media platforms) which is inefficient and can lead to confusions over agreements. Emails are the preferred method of communication with Red & Black Music for ease of traceability, archiving and auditing.
So, to make it easier for everyone, in addition to doing our best to restrict the amount of informative-only emails; we're setting up an additional failsafe: any email requiring a response/action on your part, will be accompanied by an automated text message highlighting that an action is required and the deadline for this. You may opt out of this service, however please note that you will be automatically re-subscribed if you fail to reply to an e-mail query within deadline.
Please ensure you have given the correct email to us and that you have added email@example.com to your contact list. If you have any doubts, please drop me an email and I'll check and update contact details as necessary.
Please email: do not text back to the notification text, as this message is sent out using an automatic system.
Please update me by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org if you prefer to opt out of text notifications or if you need to update your contact details.
Please help us keep conversations/agreements on e-mail so that they are easily traceable, archivable, and allow for fewer misunderstandings.
Hi, an email requiring your response has been sent to [email@example.com]. Please reply to firstname.lastname@example.org by [date time].
