The Best Alternatives to Mozilla Thunderbird for Windows in 2018

Posted by Christin on June 19, 2018

Thunderbird—created by Mozilla, the organization behind Firefox—has been a popular email client with a loyal following over the years, despite threats of halting updates and further development of the application.

For these reasons, you may be considering alternatives to Mozilla Thunderbird.

The Best Way to Read MSN Hotmail on Your Desktop

Posted by Christin on August 1, 2017

In some cases, webmail clients can be a great way to receive, read, and respond to email. Gmail, for instance, is an extremely accessible and intuitive webmail app. In addition to its ease of use, Gmail is also 100% free (with 15 free gigabytes of storage per account, no less), making it a go-to solution for personal email and business email alike. Microsoft’s Outlook.com (formerly known as MSN Hotmail) is another example of a popular webmail client. But what happens when you have multiple Gmail or MSN Outlook accounts for different purposes? Google does allow you to stay logged in on multiple accounts at once, and switching back and forth between those accounts is as simple as clicking your profile photo icon in the upper right-hand corner of the screen and selecting a different email inbox. Still, toggling between inboxes takes time. Worse, if you need to stay up to date with each inbox at all times, there is no easy answer—at least not while you are using Gmail or Outlook.com in their standard webmail formats. After all, the last thing you want is to have three or four different webmail tabs constantly open just to monitor your email. A Better Way to Monitor Your Webmail Accounts If you have multiple webmail accounts and are tired of switching between them 30 times a day or leaving half a dozen email tabs open on your browser, it might be time to make the switch to a desktop email client. A desktop…

Why Efficient Contact Management is Crucial for Your Business

Posted by Christin on May 10, 2017

As a business owner, especially for small businesses, your contact list is your most prized possession. Many (small) businesses rely on relationships to sell products or services, and every relationship is recorded in your coveted contact list. Using that list to keep in touch with your clients and customers is crucial to maintaining those relationships, and ultimately securing repeat business. Of course, the bigger your contact list becomes, the harder it is to manage. And with more relationships to remember, the harder it becomes to keep track of the details, like how you met this person, what products or services they’re interested in, and more. But all of this is key to effective contact management. Effective contact management plays an important part in your business success because it allows you to move leads through the buyer’s journey. Whether they’re a new lead or a loyal customer, contact management allows you to effectively communicate with them to maximize business opportunities. It also saves you an incredible amount of time, and for someone running his or her own business, time is money! So how exactly can you succeed at contact management? Here are some of our favorite tips! 2 Tips for Effective Contact Management 1. Group or Segment Your Contacts When managing your contact list, groups and segments will be your best friend. Which groups you use will depend on how you want to separate your contacts. You can do it by referral—how you met them or how you gained their contact…
