We started SaneBox back in 2010 to help people take back control of their email. We had 6 rules that drove us:
- SaneBox has to be as secure as humanly possible
- The customer shouldn’t have to do or learn anything new
- SaneBox has to work everywhere people check their email
- SaneBox has to get better over time
- SaneBox has to be so valuable that people will happily pay for it
- Customer data should never be a source of revenue
These points are still as important and critical to our mission as the day we started building SaneBox. When we started, the Internet was in the freemium phase – nobody wanted to pay for anything online, and it was very unhip to charge for your web service. But, we thought that thinking was short sighted. After all, if you are not paying for the product, then you ARE the product.
Sometimes it can be tough being an employee, and it can be even tougher being an employee’s boss. We all have to deal with a tremendous amount at work—demanding customers, arcane processes, constant distraction, new policies and more leave us feeling exhausted. Spare a kind thought then for your boss. They have to deal with all that, run their teams, keep their people happy, and experience the joy of people management.
Every business thrives or fails based on its relationship with its clients. Treat clients and customers with respect and they’ll shout your name from the rooftops, recommend you to family and friends, and give you a big virtual hug in the form of more sales. Treat them poorly and you’ll have a bad time. The internet moves faster than the speed of thought, and you could see any negative relationships with consumers played out online—and no-one wants that.
If you’re a student, the chances are you will need to email a professor from time to time. Because professors are teaching large numbers of students, they get an absolute deluge of email. That’s why it’s in both your best interests to learn how to email them correctly. Trust us, taking a little time to understand the right etiquette, approach them in the correct way, and share the information they need will make life easier for both of you.
There’s an ever-increasing demand for desirable property and real estate. Whether you’re buying a quirk cottage or a majestic mansion, the best properties could be seen by hundreds of potential buyers.
The days of spending our working lives in one company are behind us. Technology advances, competitive business, and expanding consumer choice means if you want the perfect career, you’ll need to move between organizations. With the right education, experience, and expertise, you can often find big improvements in salary, benefits, and job satisfaction.
Have you ever wondered what protects your rights to email your Congressman and tell them exactly what you think? It’s the First Amendment of the U.S. constitution—it doesn’t just protect free speech, it also has a neat little section called “The Right to Petition,” that says, “Congress shall make no law… abridging the freedom of speech… or the right of the people to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
Although we may take it for granted, that “redress of grievances” is exactly what lets you email your Congressman and share your thoughts, concerns, and ideas. The founding fathers couldn’t have dreamed how much technology would change the world. 1791 may have seen you putting quill to parchment, but the principles and practice of how to write to congress are pretty much the same as they were 200 years ago.
Put that feather down! Here’s the SaneBox Scoop on how to email your Congressman.
