This episode focuses on email management. I run through three steps you can take to help you manage your inbox and utilize your time more efficiently. Here are the steps and some resources to help you manage your email inbox.
1. Use the filter system within your email
This will help guide your emails into folders to keep your inbox organized. You can even create a coloured folder or flagging system for important emails. My best tip from the video is to create a filter with the word “unsubscribe”. This will aggregate all your marketing emails in one place. Or one step better, you can use the unroll.me system; I just recently started using it and found it to be extremely useful!
2. Ruthlessly unsubscribe
Now that all your incoming marketing emails are in one place, take some time to go through all of them and unsubscribe from the ones that are no longer useful to you. Another thing to do is to change your social settings. Visit the social media sites you use and modify the email notification settings to suit your needs better. Here are a few resources to help you manage your privacy settings:
3. Don’t be afraid of the phone
If you think an email will take a long time to answer, try giving the person a phone call to avoid spending time writing a detailed email. It will save you some time!
