If you want to be contacted, include your phone number

I've had this happen many times in the past and experienced it again this week. Someone who wanted to speak to me sent me three or four emails asking me when would be a good time to talk. He wrote, "let me know a good time, and I'll call you."

But he never included his own cellphone number.

I was at the airport Thursday night with my flight delayed, and tried to reach out to him. But when I looked through all the emails he had sent me, no phone number.

Either set up an automatic signature that includes your phone number, or be sure to include your phone number in any communication to clients or other people you hope will get in touch with you.

And while you are creating your email signature, include your email address. Sure, your email address is in the "from" line, but if someone wants to copy and paste your contact info into their contact management software, it certainly makes it easier if they don't have to copy and paste from two places.
