4 Easy Steps to Email Productivity

All of us deal with it, some more than others; it’s that annoying alert, ding, or vibration letting you know you have yet another email.

SaneBox is a resource that will keep you focused on saving time, our most precious commodity, and do so efficiently and quickly. SaneBox moves unimportant emails out of your Inbox, into a separate folder, and summarizes them in a daily digest. There is nothing to learn or install! It analyzes your past email behavior and social network connections to determine what’s important to you.

Once I saw how well this worked,  I installed it for one of my clients,Robert D. Smith. He had over 500,000 emails and gets more emails than I have ever seen!  He had 30 different Folders and only used 5 of them.

Here’s what we did to get an email account with over 500,000 emails under control and automated:

1. Sign up for a SaneBox trial.

2. Looked at all the folders and consolidated to the bare essentials. Less choices means less time and energy trying to decide where things should go. Make broad categories and search to help conserve time.

3. Create a “Custom Folder” on SaneBox.com. Eg. Robert gets a ton of receipts for people buying product and needs to keep those records. We created a folder called “Shipping Notifications” so all emails related to products and shipping gets dumped into the “Shipping Notifications” folder automatically so he can review when necessary. If any email has a specific subject or address, it gets put in the right folder so there is no confusion - automatically without him doing anything.

4. Move Emails into the Folder that You just Created. For Robert, we took his old folder of UPS notifications and dragged them into the new folder we created on SaneBox. That’s it! Nothing else had to be done to make it work. Emails started flowing into that box automatically; the “Setup” was just dragging the emails into the folder so SaneBox knew what to put in the folder.

That’s it; simple, easy, productive, and efficient! This tool is your rock-star executive assistant keeping you focused on what’s most important.
