If you are in affiliate programs, write and save a welcome email for each program. As you are notified of new members, go to your saved welcome messages, change name and email address and click send. This is much more efficient than writing a new message for each new member.
Have email folders for organizing your emails. If they do not require an answer you can then just put each one into it's proper folder. If they do require an answer, then drag them over to their folder after you answer each one. Of course, you want to save them to floppy or CD before distributing in folders. I have folders, for ad swaps, ad sales, subscribers, new affiliate members, affiliate sales, contacts, feedback, resources, sales made from my website, etc., etc. Each of these folders also has a floppy or CD backup.
If your webpages are uniform, it is easy to make a new page. I just go to an existing page, copy whole page, paste it into new page, change wording that needs to be changed and page is finished.
I also use this method with sections of pages that I need. Copy part of code that you need and just paste it into place. This saves countless minutes of typing!!
These are just a few of things that work for me. I realize that they might not work for everyone. If you have your own method that works for you, that is great! One method definitely does not work for all, but if you are looking for ways to get your business organized, these ideas might work for you!
