Drowning in Emails: The Post-Holiday Curse

Category: email marketingEt ceteraFeaturedTechnology Comments: No comments

gmailEvery Monday, I’m met with tens of emails that are complete crap. This is on top of an incredibly strict junk filter and random check ins to delete the filth. Yet, still, the start of every week is met with almost an hour of deleting, responding, and putting off for a later date. For legitimate emails, it’s a task I’ll happily take on – it’s also a necessary one. But all the spam or email lists that I never signed up for are something else. They’re a waste of time.

Then, a break like the holidays comes along, and the email delay is increased rapidly. Chains are sending out holiday tips, many emails are sent with an auto reply, and sales have never been higher.

Google, in its infinite wonderment, is constantly coming up with inventions that make life better. There is Chrome, email for the post 1990s, and enough ad sales revenue to pay off the national debt (not that that’s what it’s being used for) – just to name a few. Among these perks comes Google’s email chat function, or Gchat. Sitting in the bottom left-hand corner of any Gmail user’s account, this free device lets users – you guessed it – message one another instantly. Whether you send quick messages, follow up on emails, or sit and chat all day long, this program is just one more piece of amazing that Google has to offer.
