In this world that is run by technology, you can now connect with any person in any place or location around the world. And one of the main platforms of communication that is reliable, instant and hassle free is through electronic mail or in short, e-mail.
With the instantaneous communication offered by e-mail, and the easiness of how to operate this program. A lot of companies bank on e-mails for spreading their promos, advertisements and announcements. It is quick, hassle free and instant – it’s the smartest and quickest way to communicate and spread your news. But of course, all good things must have a backlash – and for this program it is junk and spam mail.
Ever got to that level of annoyance that is so unnerving from receiving so much junk and spam mail from sources that you don’t even recognize? Or ever went onto too much shopping sites on make-up, or furniture or on clothing and apparel – and then you accidentally signed up to too many subscriptions and now you are stuck with newsletters and promo announcements just stacking up on your mailbox?
I bet everyone has this problem and this can be a really big problem if goes unnoticed and unfixed. These junk and spam mail can pile up so much that you already notice that red bubble on your notifications and then it’s already up in the thousands digits. The worst part of having junk mail is that sometimes your important and critical mail that you’re actually waiting for will be hidden and dumped under all that junk mail – and the worst case is you might miss it and the opportunity to reply would be long gone.
One person was so frustrated with this that he created Unroll.Me, and this person is Jojo Hedaya. This program scans through your mailbox and automatically detects mail that comes in bulk and batches – and notes them up in a compilation that they call a “roll up” and they send you a summary of your subscriptions and from there you can select which you want to keep and which you want to quit. How convenient!
In an article on Techcrunch.com, Sarah Perez writes about the advantages that a service such as Unroll Me can offer the digital mail world. The company shows you how to successfully opt out of certain subscriptions via the online dashboard.
Unroll.Me is part of Rakuten Slice, whose market research organization Rakuten Intelligence provides the world’s leading brands, retailers, and marketers e-commerce insights to help them better understand market and consumer trends. View Additional Info Here.
Development of Unroll.Me was met with several setbacks, but they were able to overcome them and after that got several sign-ups after it was featured on The Next Web and Life Hacker, which are influencer sites.
