Short answer: I didn’t.
How do you get the attention of a top executive, let alone schedule a meeting with one?
Not only can their contact information seem difficult to come by, but with their full schedules and army of assistants, you need to have a pretty appealing offer to earn an appointment.
The average corporate employee sends and receives over 120 emails every day. For most executives, this number is even higher. How do you stand out in a sea of words? How do you make an offer that they can’t refuse?
Hint: It all comes down to making the right contact with the right person.

You’ve heard it a million times: time is money. And email, if not approached correctly, can be one of the biggest drains on your time, and by extension a drain on your bottom line.
Not only can email be a time suck, but if you’re not on top of it, you can miss crucial messages, neglect to follow up with important clients, and, generally, let more things fall through the cracks than any professional should.
We’ve teamed up with Any.do, Evernote, Expensify, Todoist, and many others to bring you simple (and simply awesome) email forwarding.
Meet SaneFwd, an easy way to automate email forwarding to your favorite third-party apps and team members.
You may have noticed the beta version of SaneFwd in your dashboards over the past couple of months. First, a big thank you to everyone who tested the feature and provided feedback—it’s this type of community effort that makes SaneBox so great.
So what is SaneFwd all about?
We have a new integration and it’s going to make Android users very happy.
If you haven’t already, meet MailDroid.

So why does SaneBox + MailDroid = the best Android email experience yet?
We’re glad you asked.
It doesn’t take a scientific study to recognize that “phubbing,” or snubbing someone in a social setting by looking at your phone instead of paying attention to that person, is becoming more and more prevalent. The evidence is all around us.
At restaurants, during concerts, even in meetings. We see people more involved in what is happening on their screen than with the people in front of them.
