GUEST POST: Eugene Feygin has a B.S. in Advertising from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. As an SEO expert, he has published articles on the SEO trends and presented at multiple conferences on marketing research and tactics, user experience and social media management. He is the founder of digital marketing agency Raw SEO, and enjoys studying UX from both sides—as a user testing products and as a designer using the results to spur innovation.

Each and every day, 193.3 billion emails are sent around the world. More than half of those are business emails. The average person spends 28 percent of the workweek reading and responding to email, which equates to 13 hours a week. So what do we do about all this email dependence? Thankfully there are tools and strategies to cut down on inbox overload and get organized. Considering an estimated two-thirds of the emails in an average inbox are not important, regular inbox cleaning, archiving, and unsubscribing can do wonders. Project managers and instant messaging systems, including Slack, Pie, Rocket.Chat, and Team Tracker App, can all help workers collaborate without (or with fewer) emails. Check out the infographic below to learn how to cut down on your outgoing and incoming emails.
