How many newsletters do you get each day/week?

I've recently started to get several emails from http://www.evasunderklader.se/, which is a site that sells underwear and whatever.. Womans underwear.. (Which obviously feels a bit odd since I'm a guy.. And I've never bought anything from that site.)

I've tried to unsubscribe a handful of times but it doesn't seem to work. They also have my real name. My first name. And I get about 1 or 2 of these newsletters per week.

- That was the reason for this question. - Other than that, I get about 4 or 5 other newsletters per week. - It feels like that's enough reading for one week.

How about you? - How many do you get per day or week?

Ohh I've un-subscribed from many email newsletters in the past because they've sent me too many emails. I once subscribed to some guys service from a forum he was promoting it on where he was going to send you emails on how to make money online. His first several emails were all good but then I started getting like 2-4 emails a day. Eventually I was getting about 8 emails a day from him and it was just like what man this is too many. Talk about shove it down my throat! It was just too many so I un-subscribed. They stopped coming for a few days. But then they started coming again. And I was still getting like 5-8 emails a day. So I messaged him on the forum to say, look mate, I've un-subscribed from your emails because I was getting too many. Now you've re-added me without my permission? That's illegal! And to either remove me from his subscription or I would report him to his ISP for email spam. I never received another one to this day!

Moral of the story, if they guy had only sent me like maximum 1 email per day, I'd have been fine and happy with that. Even if he re-added me to his list! But sending like 5+ emails per day it's just too much! I can't understand that. It's too much to read and digest, there's not enough hours in the day, or enough space in my inbox to get and read that many emails per day and it's a big no no in my books!

In all, I probably receive anywhere from 20-50 emails per week from newsletters and things I'm subscribed to. In most cases I just unsubscribe to the ones that are rubbish and don't really tell me anything new. But I'm subscribed to a lot of news sites in the SEO / IT niche and get daily emails about the latest happenings in the SEO / IT world which is cool as means I don't have to go out to search those sites to find out what's new and happening in that world. How many newsletters do you get each day/week?

LOL! - I'd say that even 2 per day is way too much. I can handle 1 per day, but not more than that. Sure, once per week or so perhaps, but not on a regular basis. I seriously hate newsletters and I bet that's the actual reason that I've never built a list myself. How many newsletters do you get each day/week?

Yes I agree with you here one to two newsletters per week from a website is more than enough. One a day is too much. More than one a day will tick me off beyond belief and I don't really care how great the emails are I will unsubscribe just because it is annoying to get so many emails!

Indeed. From my experience, it's usually the email marketing newcomers who sends more than 1 email per day on a regular basis. Emails filled with affiliate links and whatever, and it's annoying to receive several of them. People can't have that much to say, so they need to send 2-3 emails per day.

I also get a newsletter maybe once a week or twice a week at the most and usually they are products that are sold locally. If the newsletter is interesting, I read it and I allow it in my inbox which means I may receive another of that newsletter. But when it's a spam to me, I move it to the spam folder so the subsequent newsletter from the same sender will automatically go to the spam folder.

I get a lot and sometimes it pisses me off. I mean nobody actually reads newsletters nowadays. And there are times when I sign up on something that I like, then I'll receive newsletters from another site which I didn't even subscribed to in the first place.

I am subscribed to quite a few websites so I receive a good many emails every week. I would say maybe 20 to 35 emails a week.

Those are the emails I am subscribed to... now the email newsletters that I did not subscribe to... I get loads of those and I get so upset by that. It is awful that people just add you to lists like that.

Today I received 8 emails that I never signed up for!

I hear you Lynne. I feel the same way whenever I get an email from "evasunderklader". I've never signed up for those and I would probably not do that either, as it's underwear for women..

And the worst part, is that it seems like I can't un-subscribe either. That's just terrible and I hate it.

A LOT, to much I think. I'm checking my emails almost the entire day that I'm awake but somehow my inbox is still full in the morning and I need to do a clean up.

Most of the times I just read the titles and device if it's interesting enough to open the email or not, other times I open each email and delete it if I don't find it interesting. I unsubscribe only when I think the emails are completely rubbish, otherwise, I keep my subscription on, sometimes I do get interesting stuff and it would be a pity to miss that just because I want a cleaner inbox.

I have a lot of unnecessary newsletters. This is pretty common since I go to conferences and events regularly. I tend to forget about this subscription and will only deactivate them when I have time on weekends. It is pretty annoying to get emails from websites which do not interest me. For instance, why would I want to get marriage counseling when I am single.

I know exactly what you mean! My personal email and work email are two completely different stories when it comes to newsletters. I try and keep my personal email clean and free of unwanted emails, so I only subscribe to sites and organizations that I absolutely want to see content from. This has worked great for me so far!

As for my work email, I get all kinds of solicitations from various marketing, education and advertising companies. The reason behind this, like you, is that I attend a significant number of conferences and webinars as part of my job, so I automatically get added to their mailing lists after I attend their events. I usually keep them in my inbox anyway, in case they announce a worthwhile event or have some information that actually piques my interest, but it drives me crazy how cluttered things can get.

I see. That are some great moves to reduce such newsletters. I guess different countries might have different marketing styles. Perhaps that is what drives them to continuously send spam. Nowadays. most newsletters are aimed at my personal email which is fine for me as long as they do not send anything to my work e-mail.

I hate receiving these newsletters... they are often just recognized as spam by my Gmail account so it saves me a lot of work. I never really bother signing up to half these sites YET somehow, magically I get around 10-20 newsletters per week. I honestly have no idea how but somebody is obviously good at getting people's emails, haha.

I enjoy reading the newsletters that I actually manually signed up for but that's only a couple of websites that spark my interest. I think there are currently 2 or 3 sites that I personally signed up for receiving the newsletters. So, if I get 20 per week, 3 are my own and 17 are spam. Nice ratio How many newsletters do you get each day/week?

I am not interested in newsletters. I have signed up for one but I receive around 15 per week. I just go to the sites to unregister for those which are possible but they still send me emails which go to my Spam anyway.

I really try to keep my newsletter subscriptions to a minimum and reserve signups for companies that I know and trust. Generally, I'll get anywhere from 3 to 5 newsletters a day, usually B&H Photo, Adorama, or other photography sites. I've subscribed to some blogs as well that publish content about filmmaking, graphic design and animation, which I enjoy reading as often as I can.

I'm really selective in what I get in my inbox because if I'm getting bombarded by newsletters, then I'll be less likely to read them. This way, by keeping things to a certain number, I only get what I'm absolutely interested in, and I look forward to receiving the newsletters instead of reacting in a "how did this not end up in my spam folder" way.

I've got a different email which I use for registrations on useless sites and for other sign ups like newsletters. Thankfully, I have done that otherwise, my main email would be full of absolute crap and spam. I don't even know how many newsletters I get to be honest with you because I get so many. I don't even bother reading most of them but I'm just a bit too lazy to unsubscribe from them. I have been trying to sort them all out but I just haven't found enough free time to start doing that.

It is strange that you are not successful in unsubscribing stuff you are not interested in receiving It is a daily affair with me and whenever I click on that link for unsubscribing I can successfully do it. Sometimes I just do not open those links and they are normally found in the spam folder.

I am only subscribed to about two or 3 websites newsletter services. So I only receive about two or 3 a week. Sometimes 4. But no more than that. People who get a lot of newsletters have obviously checked the box to receive newsletters when buying from a website or joining a forum or blog. That's why when you make any purchases or join any new sites - that box marked 'receive newsletter' needs to be left unchecked.

I never even read the newsletters I get. My email is subscribed to many sites and so I get more than 10 newsletters a week. I only unsubscribe to sites which I have stayed more than 5 months without visiting. Apart from the newsletter, I get more than 12 notifications per day.

I subscribe to newsletters of people in a field I want to learn more about. At the moment I am subscribed to newsletters to do with affiliate marketing and copywriting. Generally I have found that if I want to unsubscribe they are quite good about it and do so when I press unsubscribe. I get about 15-20 newsletters a day. I try to read them everyday in the evening so they don't pile up. Try and block them from coming to your inbox if they refuse to unsubscribe you.

Me too, I'm getting about 10-15 a day and I've tagged everyone of them as spam, so that my primary inbox won't get filled with junk mail.
