Let me paint a familiar picture for you that I am sure you have seen almost every morning. You start your day bright and early and log on to your computer. Probably the first thing you are going to do is check your email. You go through each email, responding where necessary, but you have to skip over some and throw some others in the trash. Why, because your email inbox is full of spam alongside your wanted email. Put simply your email spam protection has failed at its prime duty, to protect your inbox from spam.

So, this is what has happened every day for the last 5 years. It was not until I stumbled across wumber that this routine changed, for the best!

What is wumber?

wumber is a way of totally getting rid of spam! It will encode the recipient and sender of an email into a unique email address encoding it so the email address can only be used by the recipient. It doesn’t even matter if they give the email address to someone else because it won’t work for them. Simple!

How does this help you?

It helps you in a number of ways! Your real email address is protected and the specially encoded wumber which is created seamlessly from your desktop email application or iPhone can have different rules applied. This means that you will always have complete control of the rules that you give this new unique email.

Imagine you go to sign up or order something from an online retail. Weeks later you start getting annoying emails from them to the point where you consider it spam. One of the best things about a wumber is that you can change the rules without the person that has your email address knowing about it. You all of a sudden change the rules and BAM, no more annoying spam emails from that company. If they are just sending too many emails, simply put a limit on the number of emails you are prepared to accept each day, week, month or whatever period you choose.

Remember, wumber also has a unique feature that makes your email address completely useless if they give it to someone else. This makes list selling completely fruitless for these companies and you are spam free!

wumber is free to join and it’s free for everyone to use. I would highly suggest you go give it a try. You can read more or join at https://www.wumber.com or you can check out all the stories of wumber users together with tips and hints for protecting your privacy and cutting out the spam at their Facebook page or take a look at the blog.

Revamping your email systems- part 1

Upgrade your email system- here is how…

Email can be controlled. If you want it to be. As a business owner, before you hire someone to deal with your email, you need a system they can follow. There are a lot of systems, I just want to share the simple one I use to clear my inbox every day that I work. I don’t clear it daily because I take days off. Even if I am behind in work or behind in my goals. That’s a post for another day.

There are 5 things that need to happen with email

Delete- just delete the stuff you dont care about and are not going to read. Remove yourself from an email list that you find you are not really reading what they send over a month. It saves you the visual garbage and its saves THEM money, not paying to email you when you no longer wish to get them or read them.

Delegate-  There are things that other people need to handle for you. Assistant, virtual assistant, whoever you delegate to, just send the email over to them. If you have prepared them well, they can handle it. Don’t micro manage, just ask them to handle it and unless they make a huge mistake, understand they will not handle it the way YOU would. They are not you, however, their solution can work and leave you free to do the things you can not delegate

Respond- answer the question, buy the thing, add it to your calendar, read the email and get the update…whatever the response is, do it and then archive the email

Defer- this is for things you do not have time to deal with. You must also have time on your calendar each week to go through what is Deferred or risk dropping the ball on business activities and thereby losing money.

Do- Some email mean taking an action, do it right then and there.

if an email has been handled, then delete or archive it.

You email box will be empty after practicing this for about a month. Teach it and delegate this to an assistant and stop sweating about your email. Be efficient, get rid of spam and live a normal live. Nothing is great about having a huge number of emails sitting around.

It used to be a sign of how busy you are, now, it’s a sign of how inefficient you are. If I want to work with you and hear you an a huge overflowing full email box— ALL THE TIME– Then I am going to think again. If you can’t handle your email, you might not be a good match to work with me. There is a point when you need to upgrade your systems.

If you practice this s

Using a timer is crucial. When I am working at home, it feels like I am doing a lot more than I am. Actually timing the business-work I am doing helps me to see just how much time I am really doing things that generate cash flow for my business.

My bad habit: Constantly looking at my email. I gave myself a certain amount of time to deal with email and I tend to use up what I have allocated for the entire day by 11 am. This is a big time waster for everyone.

Anyone working from home and fooling themselves about how much they are really doing?

Let me know how you handle it and your time tips!
