Working Your Out-of-Office Reply While You’re Away

Many people will take the time to set a simple auto-response to go out when someone writes them an e-mail. It’s usually something like “I will be out of the office until Tuesday, 4/14. If necessary, I can be reached at …” Talk about a missed opportunity!

Why not get a little fancy with this message and do a bit of promotion while you’re at it? After all, you have to write something there anyway, how about adapting one of these lines for your next out-of-office reply:

  1. I’m out of town and can’t respond to your message until next Tuesday. While you’re waiting for me, check out our blog at
  2. I’m not checking e-mail while I’m out of the office until Tuesday, but I’m still Twittering! You can get a daily dose of what I’m doing at
  3. I’m out of the office until Tuesday, but I’ll be celebrating our latest website launch the whole time I’m away. Check out and tell me what you think.

The best part? You don’t have to do any extra work to do a little promotion.
