Every morning I wake up and I grab my iPhone from it’s alarm clock and I groan because there are 20+ e-mails of advertisements. Every single morning. And I have said ENOUGH. So next week is project: Unsubscribe.
As my emails are coming in next week I’m going to do one of the following:
Unsubscribe – the ones that are just not interesting, relevant or too frequent.
Establish Rules – To send the ones that I would still want but don’t want in my inbox to a specific folder. (For example: Gap coupons – do you know how to set up rules? If you’d like instructions on how to do this leave a comment and I’ll put up a video over the weekend) This way if I actually NEED to purchase something I can see if there is a recent coupon without being tempted by coupons mid-week. I’m going to establish another rule for newsletters and informative e-mails that I like to check out periodically.
Mark as Spam – For items that I don’t believe I have ever subscribed to (my need for performance enhancement doesn’t actually exist) I’m going to mark as spam so I’m never bothered by them again. I don’t even want to try to unsubscribe because I don’t want to catch something from their site.
Will you be joining me in project unsubscribe? Let me know what you’re using for e-mail and I’ll create a “how to create a rule” video for the different options people list.
