If you are like me, you really don’t have time for emails that clutter up your inbox.
You know the kind, junk offers and information that are not relevant to you.
The one’s where you can’t even remember signing up to receive their information at all.
But what happens when you try to unsubscribe?
In the main, it is usually relatively easy to do.
Most emails come from an auto responder which has an inbuilt unsubscribe option in it.
You just scroll to the bottom of the email where it will either indicate manage subscriptions or plainly say unsubscribe.
Click on the link and you will be re-directed to another page.
This is where sometimes tricky some options are posed.
Some will say sorry, if you’ve made a mistake you can click here to re-subscribe. Others tempt you with offers to another even more interesting list – just say no!
Whilst other clever marketers will say sorry to see you go, you will miss out on all the wonderful offers I have for you, you have the last chance to re-subscribe just in case you made a mistake.
Other options ask you to choose which lists you wish to unsubscribe from.
Others are a bit more tricky as they ask you to actually check a box to unsubscribe.
Make sure you read and check what you are agreeing to, don’t think just because you have clicked the unsubscribe button on your email that you have done the job.
Sometimes it may take a few days for your options to kick in so you may still receive a few emails but if this keeps happening then you have probably run into the same problem as James Veitch, Comedian who did an extremely funny Ted talk on this very topic.
