Managing Email for effective communication.

Inbox overwhelm is often a side effect of your marketing kicking into action,  and no one likes being overwhelmed by emails and your inbox, so as I was cleaning up my inbox today I thought I would share some email management tips with you.
Today I am unsubscribing, deleting, creating rules and more to deal with my inbox it allows me to think clearer and deal with the pressure that emails can create on my day. So how can you kick inbox overwhelm to the curb?

Read it, Flag it, Delete it:

It is that simple the email can be read and responded to, flagged for follow up or deleted. Apply this approach and you will save time. Go through your inbox with a critical eye, if you can reply do it now, if you can’t flag it for follow up, if it is junk delete it.

Don’t leave your email open

Leaving your email open only leave you open to distraction, hide it or minimise it in your toolbar and check once an hour or even less often

Turn of Notifications

Notifications tap into our FOMO by pinging away, and those pings can naturally become overwhelming. Turn them off you will feel better for it and less of a slave to your email and phone.

Folders are your friend

Create folders and rules that sort your emails as they come in it allow you to filter your emails and prioritise into reading and response groups. The same rules of Read it, Flag it, Delete it apply

Unsubscribe from unwanted/unread emails

Emails that we don’t read just clog up our inbox, and distract us from what we need t do for the day. Unsubscribe and delete it! Unroll.me is an awesome tool to help you with this!

Flag and Categorise:

There are times that we can’t respond to an email when we read it. Flag it or categorise it to follow up then make time once a week to clear the flags.

With IGTV you can share video content up to an hour long, which is ideal for YouTube inspired binge-watching sessions.
