Businesses More Inundated With Email
I build and manage several websites for small businesses. More and more of them are getting inundated with email messages that they don’t want to receive. But, these are not necessarily coming from “spam” sources. They are coming from vendors and other business contacts. At some point businesses are going to give up on their email because the benefits received are not worth the cost of the time required to receive and review all their messages.
What They Want to Receive
Better filter systems are being developed everyday. But hackers and email “experts” are able to overcome most of these over time. At some point business owners and managers are going to find a way to receive what they want to receive. Facebook, and other “approved contact” services, can do just that.
A New Frame of Mind
Internet contacts are starting to be viewed from a different perspective.
If you are my business associate, I will approve you as a friend on Facebook. If you send me a bunch of stuff that I don’t want, then I will remove you.
This frame of mind will make the message sender think twice about the value he puts in his message and how much “junk” he is sending out. That would save money and time.
