In most cases, people are receiving your invite on their phone where they can only see the title and have to click again to view the message contents.

So that nice, big paragraph you wrote outlining what needed to be done in the meeting, no one saw it, no one read it. To top it all off, your title was something generic like – “Status Update” – when really it’s more, much more.

If you want to get people excited for your next meeting, put your goal in the title, boil it down to one sentence, set the tone that forces them to want to open up and read what you wrote.

Finishing Review of Requirements (no more after this)

Final Input for v2 Design (we start coding tomorrow)

Demonstration of how to run Unit Tests (we’ll record if you can’t make it).

What’s in between the brackets are the next steps if they choose not to attend.

Only 2 days until Code Your Way Up goes live, you can pre-order now.
