A huge part of my week is spent just trying out new things. Whether it’s a new organizer app, a new email program or project management software, in order to properly guide my clients towards the right products, I like to play with them all. This means that every single week, my email gets entered into somewhere around…10-15 websites as a login or signup. This results in those 10-15 services contacting me. It also results in another series of contacts from other companies that I’ve never signed up for service with. Unfortunately, a lot of companies make a lot of money off of selling their contact lists. The result? I get a lot of emails from companies I don’t really want anything to do with from an email perspective, both those that I’ve signed up for and those that I haven’t. And what do I usually do? I delete that email and carry on. But not this week. This week I hit the magic button. Unsubscribe.
How much time do you waste JUST deleting emails you don’t care about. Some of these are things I signed up for. Example. Moores. Occasionally I want to know what Moores is offering on sale. But not weekly. And yet every week, Moores tells me, HEY, WE’VE GOT NEW SHIRTS ON SALE. I don’t really care. So? Unsubscribe.
