Is spam leaving more than a bad taste in your mouth?

Is spam leaving more than a bad taste in your mouth?

Besides being a big nuisance, spam can be detrimental to your business and cost more than you think. So how can something you don’t engage in, be costing you? It is difficult to imagine that an estimated 93% of all email traffic is spam. That leaves a mere 7% of genuine emails being received.

We’ve all been targeted by spammers, receiving emails from how to lose 5kg’s a day to finding our soul mate online. As frustrating as they can be, they are also costing businesses time and inevitably money. Without proper filters in place, you could be subject to constant spam emails daily. This can be a major distraction for employees as they spend valuable time identifying, filtering through and removing these emails.  The explosion of spam has led to millions of dollars in lost employee productivity across Australia each year. These days there are many anti-spamming products available on the market that aim to eliminate or reduce spam. So how do you know you’re getting the best bang for your buck?
