Nudgemail: What a Cool Idea for Your Business
This neat little service came to my attention this morning via always venerable Chris Brogan.
I was so stoked about it that I tested it immediately and decided to write up a little how-to guide for the not-so technically inclined.
At first, there was an idea.
Nudgemail: A tied piece of string around your finger.
Nudgemail is a reminder service. You send it an email telling it when to remind you and it sends you an email back at the specified time including whatever additional text you placed in the email.
Instead of email@example.com, you could say firstname.lastname@example.org, or email@example.com…
It will accept most human-friendly variations. See http://www.nudgemail.com/how/ for more options.
You can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the specific date and time in the subject line as well…very flexible, very simple.
Works in your email
Using NudgeMail is entirely done within email, which is the way you do all of your other work. No need to go to a website, just keep working the way you are used to.
No need to register
NudgeMail has no sign-up or sign-in, no passwords, no usernames, no software, apps, plug-ins, downloads or any other barriers to keep you from setting reminders. It just works.
OK, I’ll use it. But what can I expect to happen next?
After you send it an email, Nudge will reply back with a confirmation. It looks something like this.
