Looking At A Week In The Land Of Spamalot

Jim Luff
Posted on September 9, 2015

Last week I whined about the number of industry related emails send to me each day from a myriad of industry sources, wanna-be sources and industry related vendors. See: An Echanted Journey To Spamalot

If you opened every single one that came to you, it would be impossible to run your business.

I decided to track each industry related email received in a one week period (not including orders, employee emails and client emails). Here is my list of what I consider "junk email." Now, before anyone gets in a huff about the use of the word "junk," let me say it is a metaphor for things in my mailbox I could probably survive without. Not even a legal holiday could stop the madness.

I am not sure what the solution to this is. I'm sure every single person that sends an email believes that it is important, life changing or informative. But the fact is you have to make choices on how to spend your time.
