If you’re like me, the need to Tame your Email inbox is pretty strong. Welcome to another edition of “Behind the Scenes Business Tips! Today’s tip is a time saver and a sanity saver.
What’s the state of your email inbox? Mine has been in overdrive and I have been struggling to keep up. I even took an online class in how to better manage Gmail. There are all kinds of tips and tricks, but today’s tip is as simple as pie.
Manage Your Email Inbox
I learned about a free tool called Unroll.Me earlier this year. It recognizes Subscriptions in your email inbox, tells you how many newsletters you’re subscribed to, and gives you a few decisions to make on each. The choices are to continue receiving it as a single email in your box, to ‘roll it up’ and get it in a daily email digest of all your subscription newsletters, or to unsubscribe. You then will receive one email on a daily basis of all those you ‘rolled up’ and this, my friends, is delightful.
Here’s a screen shot of my daily email from Unroll.Me last month. It was delivering 7 emails which I had chosen to ‘roll up’ and in the blue bar across the top of the email, it informed me that they found 56 new subscriptions for me to review. Once you review them, they won’t show that option again, because you will have made the decision on how to deal with them: keep as is with single delivery, roll up into daily digest, or unsubscribe.
The best part is as I keep reviewing them, the numbers TO review keep getting smaller.
Here’s one from last week. There were 5 in my daily digest and 30 for me to review.
You can also do this at a glance once you set up an account with them.
