Just read a short article in HBJ on handling your email load. It’s an always aktuell topic, isn’t it.

This guy realized he could go through weeks of emails in 3 hrs after returning from vacation, while he normally spent 3 hrs per day doing the same.
His solution: email time; 30 minutes, 3 times per day. No more!

Could you do that?
I think we all would love to spend less time reading, answering, searching for and sending reminders on emails. But could you start doing that in an organization where everyone else answers emails every second of their workday and some event every second of every day? Would it take a decision by the whole organization for someone’s “email time” to not become a workplace problem?

This blogpost was additionally written in my former blog dollysdoings.blogspot.com, but since WordPress IS all the rage I felt compelled to switch…

Just started reading “Landing Page Optimization” by Tim Ash, and it hit me.

What is my prefered way of recieving information?!

I have two different RSS feeds – I started with one, it grew out of control, so I simply started a new one – this time I am more restrictive in what ends up there.

When I started with RSS I stopped with a lot of newsletters – but not all. So why did I keep some? To be honest…probably because I just wasn’t ready to let go, and they had no RSS-feed – it doesn’t mean I read them.

I also get SMS-offers from some shops I’m a member of. It bugs me sometimes, but I don’t opt-out, it’s so easy to erase and so much fuzz to click links and stuff on my cell.

I get info emails from a couple of companies too. Delta for instance. I hate those! I don’t travel much, and if I do they send me a “get 10 % off a destination” just after I’ve ordered. That is some CRAPPY e-mail marketing, when I think about it! Hey, Delta, do you need a Internet Marketing Manager?! 😉

I also get info emails from MarketingProfs. Those guys are GREAT! They remind me of seminars, and “toot their own horn”, but only about stuff that are interesting, or at least 2 out of 3 times it’s interesting.

But if could choose any way for a specific company. Well, MarketingProfs would stay in the Inbox, because I never ignore my Inbox!

Delta, well, I don’t know, maybe my first RSS feed (you remember, the one I never read anymore) – they’ve had too many chances already.

The guys that keep sending me SMS-ads… well, how about RSS?! I COULD read it if I wanted to, and I could ignore it…or opt-out of course, but I’m a bit curious about the next offer after all! :
