My friend Bryan asked me “When is it ok to send an email without an unsubscribe link?”.
Well Bryan, there’s a lot of nuance when it comes to laws and ethics around sending emails. Since we make email software, we want to help you adhere to the laws in your jurisdiction (at a minimum). Beyond legal compliance, I want you sending emails that recipients want to receive. That’s better for you and better for your audience.
I’m not surprised you were confused about laws around unsubscribe links. Understanding CAN-SPAM is a good place to start if you have US audience.
Keep in mind that if you’re a US company sending to Canada, CAN-SPAM does not apply at all and instead you need to look at CASL. Spam laws tend to be based on the recipient’s rather than sender’s country.
This is going to be fun. Let’s dig in.Read more & comment

This gave us the confidence to decide at the end of 2013 to make it ok for people to be distributed. We made that decision public in our Annual Report and many people have been curious about how our experiment has been going.
5 months in to 2014, we’re now a distributed team.Read more & comment
Have you ever walked into your favorite store or restaurant and a member of the staff immediately recognized you? Imagine they said something like “Hey Sofia, we just got in a great hat that will go with the coat you bought last month!”
It would be a pretty surprising feeling, right?
