WAIT! Don’t stop reading just yet. We’re here to help – not sell you something you don’t need. Answer a few quick questions for us – this won’t take long:
- Do you regularly wake up with 50, 100…200 schpamy emails? (We can’t say the s-word around here).
- Do you delete at least half of those emails without even opening them?
- Does the s-word make you think about your Outlook crashing instead of the terrifying ham-based canned lunch meat?
Say yes to any of the above? Then you need TBG’s quick guide on how to avoid mystery-meat emails.
You know you’re reading schpam when:
You don’t know who they are or how they got your email, but they REALLY WANT YOUR BUSINESS.
The hundredth LinkedIn update from that group that you don’t remember subscribing to.
How to avoid schpam:
- When signing up for a free trial or purchasing something online, make sure you check (or un-check) the box indicating whether or not you care to receive information.
- When you do get unwanted email, instead of deleting it, go ahead and unsubscribe.
- Use a service (we like Unroll.me) to manage and consolidate those subscriptions that you don’t really want to unsubscribe, but clutter your inbox.
We hope we’ve earned your trust and that, in the future, you’ll continue to enjoy our emails and blog posts that are filled with useful tips, funny infographics and industry trends. However, if we remind you a little too much of the ubiquitous and mysterious ham in a can, we’ll understand if you unsubscribe from us or stop reading our posts.

Very creative effort! I’m not surprised it came from your shop.
