A higher standard for people who send
sales email.

Inboxes are being flooded with email. They're so cluttered that less than 2% of messages get a reply.

At Gated, we collaborated with leading sellers to develop a simple playbook for responsible selling in email.  If you see a sales person who put this in their email footer, reply to them. You'll find a thoughtful opportunity from someone who respects your time.
