Putting an End to Email Overload
I don't know about you, but I have three separate email accounts that get a fair amount of useless emails every day. I read a statistic recently stating that 80% of emails are spam. Ugh! Anyway, when I heard about unroll.me, I immediately checked it out.
The deal is this. You sign in with your Gmail and/or Yahoo accounts (these are the only email clients supported at this time), and it will automatically run through your account and pull out all of your subscriptions. It then gives you a choice to either unsubscribe from them or "roll them up" into one combined email that you'll receive daily. Ta-da! No more cluttered inboxes! I can hardly imagine it.
When I ran the scan on my Gmail account, it found 133 subscriptions. My Yahoo had 138. Some of them I didn't even recognize! Needless to say, I unsubscribed from more than half of them on both accounts and "rolled" the rest.
I'm excited to experience my new inbox!
My goal at The Pizza Insider is to give you the inside scoop on the latest trends, marketing tactics and technology so that you're always one step ahead of the competition! I've been a part of the pizza industry since 2007, first as the editor-in-chief, and now as the editor-at-large at PMQ Pizza Magazine. My first pizza book, Pizza: A Slice of American History, was just released; find out more here.
