Imagine a time when advertisers actually had to pay you for spamming you with adverts and deals. Okay, that time is here! Liz Gannes
breaks the news on an interesting new email services called Boxbe
. The service, which charges marketers to email its users, launched this week. Users simply sign up and use the email to sign up for "junk" emails like contests, forms, newsletters, etc. Then when companies try to contact you, Boxbe contacts them and gives them the option of paying a fee to deliver the email to your Boxbe account. Both Boxbe and the email user will share the profit. What do you think? Would you use it?
