Sometimes it is the small things we don’t think about. I was encouraging one of my clients to send e-mails to programmers t for advice and see PD’s are just regular folks. During one of our critique sessions, she told me she had not received any replies. The light bulb inside my head lit up. I asked what she was putting in the subject line. She said either just ‘hi’ or ‘hello.’ Bingo. She unknowingly had solved her problem. The PD probably thought her e-mails were spam (or their email server automatically dropped them into the spam file) or they thought the email contained a virus. I simply told her to put in the subject line “I need radio advice/I am an afternoon drive personality.” She took my advice and, sure enough, started getting replies.
