FollowUp was the solution to an entrepreneur's emailing grievances. In his daily operations running a business, he often found himself emailing people and then posting a reminder on his calendar to email that person again if they didn't respond in due time.
He wanted a solution that would automatically remind him to follow up with someone, and thus created FollowUp.cc: a service in which you copy us on emails you want to follow up with, simple as that.
We're proud to have invented this concept of attaching a reminder with a flexible format as an email address (see our first home page launched in 2007). This has allowed people to use the service in various ways that work for them, such as:
- attaching reminders to outgoing emails
- using our service a scheduled to-do list
- turning emails into tasks
- and of course snoozing emails via forwarding or our Snooze Links
