Practically everyone that has access to the internet or even a cellphone has an email these days, so we should all be on the same page when it comes to the annoyance of spam emails and all the junk that can pile up over the weeks. For some poor unfortunate souls, emails are so frequent that they can’t even keep up with them throughout the day. The worst part about the spam is the fact that it makes it difficult to find the important things, which is where Unroll.Me comes into play.
Unroll.Me is described as an email unsubscription service that is capable of automating the process of keeping an email tidy and free of junk. The company was started back in 2012 by a man named Jojo Hedaya, who was also going through his email crisis at the time, which formed the basis of his idea for the company. Funny enough, there were virtually no other companies on the market at the time with the same niche as Jojo, which made it quite easy to fill the gap in the market.
Customers who decide to use Unroll.Me will find that they have complete control over how it handles their emails. They can schedule specific times for Unroll.Me’s services to run, and all the subscriptions they want to block. The service will also allow customers to have their emails sorted by relevancy and importance, rather than the date of the email coming in, this way it becomes much easier to find emails that need to be checked right away.
Perhaps the most impressive part about Unroll.Me isn’t the fact that it works wonderfully or that it was seriously needed, but that Jojo Hedaya has made the service free for all customers. There must be a catch though right? Nope, this is because Unroll.Me can bring in revenue by working with Slice. Slice is Unroll.Me’s parent company that sifts through the spam emails collecting data to develop lists of market research, which can then be sold off to other companies. Of course, no sensitive information is shared, rather just the trends of consumers as a whole, and companies are willing to pay for that.
