Boring Money on Whatsapp
Or how you can bypass the emails going to Promotions problem in Gmail
I love email. Both to communicate and to keep track of my newsletters. But Gmail has an annoying problem because of which it often sends Substack emails over into the Promotions folder, which we mostly ignore. Also email is flooded with all sorts of marketing crap.
I now have a way to notify readers about new posts via Whatsapp! Here’s the link to join: https://chat.whatsapp.com/GwG9W0nLRIEHQa85lHFy9y
I have a zero spam promise with this Whatsapp group. Readers will not be able to post, only I will. Your number will only visible to me, not to other subscribers. It’s not a group to discuss stuff or to have any form of two-way communication. The only purpose is to be notified of a Boring Money post when there’s one. That’s 2 to 4 messages a month, at most. If you’re already a regular reader via email or the Substack app, you need not join.
I get the irony of this communication itself being on email. But such is life.
