While I was interested in Unsubscribes service when it came out most users were turned off by the price. Unsubscribe has just fixed that by making their service and BlackBerry app totally free. There are no limit on your Ubsubscribes and you can use your Social Monitor tool to cover you on Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter. You can sign up now for free at www.unsubscribe.com.
Unsubscribe explains why they had to launch with a paid model and why they are glad to have found alternative revenue sources to make the service free. Its interesting that they make a point of saying they do not sell your data because that is usually how these services manage to stay free. Hopefully they stay that way.
Unsubscribe.com is now 100% FREE!! You now get Unlimited Email Unsubscribes and our NEW Social Monitor tool, which protects you on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter.
If you haven’t come back to see us in a while, we’ve made a ton of enhancements. So what are you waiting for? Go to Unsubscribe.com, download the latest software and begin visiting a safer and cleaner inbox, while protecting you on your favorite social networks.
P.S. If you’d like to know more about why we went free, here you go…
We never wanted to charge for the Unsubscribe consumer service. When we started Unsubscribe.com our cost to handle each customer’s request was considerably high. The only way we could maintain the product was by charging for it- until now. By focusing on technology and building a kick ass team, we’ve managed to significantly lower costs and the result is that starting yesterday, August 4th, 2011, we made the product 100% free to consumers.
So now you’re thinking, "Are these guys free so they can sell my data?" The answer is NO- we do not sell any personal data that we capture through our service. Our mission has been, and always will be, to protect you from companies that are using your data.
"OK, so are you volunteers?" No, we are not. Through testing we have come up with alternative ways of making money, one example that you can see is our certification business.
