Do you wake up each morning to an inbox half full of spam?

Most of the time we subscribe to marketing material without even realising or we are simply added without our consent. Do you have a steady stream of marketing emails each day? If so you are going to want to read what’s coming next… Unsubscribing, the new time saver!

Set up your email to handle sifting

Dependent on what email software you use, there is a way to separate emails with the simple click of a button. Google has coloured stars, Apple Mail has coloured flags. No matter what email software you use, put a colour code system in place to organise your mail.

Why sift?

The simple answer, it will save you time! Rather than unsubscribing one by one (a major business disruption) you simply highlight the email by flagging or starring it, in the allocated colour associated with ‘Unsubscribe’. Then once a month during a time where you have a small amount of time, dedicate yourself to unsubscribing from the entire list you have built up over the month. As months go by (and as long as you aren’t a serial subscriber) you will see that list when you wake get smaller and smaller. In the long run this will save you time on a daily basis from going through such a long list of emails.

What if there is no unsubscribe button?

Look upon these emails as pure spam, don’t respond or associate with them, simply mark as spam or delete. In time they will stop if they see they have received no response. Unfortunately due to most businesses using online practices, most businesses will be targeted by direct sale emails.
