Gmail is Keeping Tabs on You!
If you’re a Gmail user or if you have a mailing list, then the likelihood is that you’re aware of the recent changes that Google has implemented to Gmail. If not, then I shall give a brief synopsis:
I’m sure that you, like me, have been used to a standard, set way of accessing your e-mail – having your inbox usually on the left of the screen with other folders such as draft, trash or custom folders beneath it.
Well Google has decided that, if you use Gmail, you need your inbox splitting into tabs. What this means now is that, instead of all your unfiltered mail just going straight into your inbox, it’s now separated into separate tabs, being filtered by Google as to what tab it thinks the e-mails should be assigned to.
This has thrown many users into a tizzy, especially Internet Marketers, as not only are the majority of people perfectly happy with the way their e-mail displays and is organised but Marketers are worried that their e-mails may end up being missed through being placed in a tab and the e-mails under that tab being ignored or just missed. In short, Gmail tabs are proving to be very unpopular with many people!
However, you need not fret as it is not the end of the world. In fact, it is a very quick and easy process to change things back to how they were before. So if you’re worried about missing an important e-mail or you just don’t want things changed, check out my quick video guide as to how to change it back:
No Need to Panic About Gmail Tabs!
Now, if you have a mailing list and you’re worried that some of your Gmail based subscribers may miss out on some of your e-mails, I would suggest going into your autoresponder, selecting all your Gmail subscribers and sending them a brief e-mail asking them to either ensure that your mails are delivered to a place where they won’t miss them or to change their inbox settings as shown in this video. Perhaps you could share this video with them for the benefit of those who don’t already know how to do it.
Not everyone will take any notice but in those cases, I wouldn’t worry. Anyone who values you and your e-mails will either already be taking steps to ensure that they don’t miss anything or if they don’t know how to make the necessary changes then they will be happy to hear from you when you offer assistance.
I hope this has been of benefit to you. Don’t forget to tell Mr. Einstein what you thought of this info and let me know what your thoughts are about these Gmail changes.
