We all get plenty of spam every day. How many of the emails that we delete on a day-to-day basis are not actually spam, but those that we’ve actually signed up for? For me, that actually accounts for quite a lot of emails. So, I let the emails accumulate in my inbox for a few days and then I sat down and started unsubscribing from them.
As I was removing myself from the mailing lists of these websites it occurred to me that I wasn’t annoyed with the products or services that these companies were promoting, rather it was the frequency that I was being emailed. Emailing me every single day is soon going to become very tiresome and in the end I just didn’t even open those emails at all.
It’s probably safe to say that if you want to unsubscribe from a mailing list it’s because you either had a bad experience with a product or service, or you just don’t want to receive those emails anymore. I can’t think of many positive reasons for wanting to unsubscribe, but maybe you were waiting for a certain promotion, took advantage of it and then had no more need to receive the emails.
