Despite email’s tendency to be an inefficient and even dangerous form of communication, it’s still the primary method for most everyone in business. 

If you’re not getting timely responses or responses at all to your business related messages, there’s a possibility that when you’re sending them may be contributing.

A marketing firm called Yesware took the time to analyze 500 million messages and what they discovered was that response rates appear to be higher on weekends. This may be because weekend messages don't have to compete with nearly as many messages as they would typically on any weekday.
