new year organizing tips for your business

Get Control of your Email!

Image Posted on

As we go into the New Year, one thing you should do is get control of your email.

Having an inbox full of messages, read or unread, is a time sucker. It not only wastes time, but it can also:

  1. decrease productivity
  2. cause you to miss important messages
  3. cause stress and anxiety
  4. waste time searching for important messages
  5. decrease your customer service (because you’re simply not staying on top of it)
  6. decrease bookings (oh, didn’t see that someone wanted to book a party)

…and so much more.

So what can you do about it?

  1. Set aside one hour a day until you have gone through every single message and either deleted it or put it into a folder. CLEAR YOUR INBOX.
  2. Start unsubscribing to every single email from stores, newsletters, and other unnecessary emails you get that you’ve been subscribed to all year long. Don’t just DELETE them, UNSUBSCRIBE so you stop getting an abundance of those on a daily/weekly basis.
  3. There’s also a site called Unroll Me (click here: https://unroll.me/ ). This site will link to your email and allow you to mass unsubscribe from everything you’re subscribed to.

So who’s with me?
