I want to start by saying that I really enjoy testing new technology, new products and new methods. Testing is what I do in order to make progress, and one of the things I’ve been struggling with for the past year, ever since I started my business, is time management.
I’ve read many books on the subject, and I have spent hours staring at the computer screen, fighting the resistance, thinking that I should be doing something completely different. One of the things I’ve been having a difficult time dealing with was email.
I want to reply to fast, I want to be a super hero when it comes to how fast I reply to the people who are contacting me. But, it’s been kind of depressing when I think about it, because usually, I send my reply 3-4 days after I have received the email. That’s because I get hundreds of emails every single day, and it’s been close to impossible dealing with everything on a daily basis. I have meetings to attend, I have clients to help, and I am currently working on some big projects.
Finally – I discovered the cure
At one time, I thought that what I was going through was some sort of illness. I was receiving more emails every single day, and I just couldn’t see what was important and what was more or less plain old spam. And, several times, I ended up deleting important emails.
Now, things are different, I still don’t answer emails right away, but I’m a lot faster, and I have 100% control of my inbox, thanks to SaneBox.
I started out testing it for free for 14 days, and after the free trial, I decided to upgrade. I discovered, through their free trial, that their system of handling email is the most perfect system I’ve tried (and I have tried many).
It’s very easy to set up, and it’s fairly easy to explain as well. What I got was a few new folders in my email client, like SaneLater and SaneNews. All my emails are now being filtered by SaneBox, and the system at SaneBox will only send the most important emails to my inbox. So, throughout the day, I will only check my inbox and I will reply fast to the emails I receive in my inbox. In the evening, I’ll go through the other folders to see what I have received.
I feel that SaneBox saves me hours every day. And, I highly recommend it, if you’ve been feeling that you’re not in control of your email anymore.
Remember, you can try SaneBox for free for 14 days.
