Big change for Gmail users and… everyone sending newsletters!

Monday’s Herald (July 1st) had a wee article that I want to share.  Debbie Mayo-Smith pointed out the new inbox option for Gmail users and it could be a game changer. Not just for Gmail users, but for everyone sending newsletters to their customers.

Changes from Google

Your emails and priorities automatically sorted.

In short, Google has quietly introduced a Gmail inbox configuration which (with drop and drag) makes sorting inbox content dramatically different.  Now everyone can automatically weed out the content that they don’t want to see straight away.

If, like me, you’ve been automatically assigning newsletters to a separate folder anyway – it just got a whole host easier. If however you’re like most people, who get all their Gmail straight into their inbox, this is likely to be a very welcome change.

However, if you’re sending newsletters to customers, this change makes them less likely to be seen!

Now more than ever, your newsletters are going to have to stand out from the crowd. Once this inbox shift takes off (and I predict it will), your newsletters could be automatically buried in a separate tab in one of the world’s most used email systems.
