Gepost door Christin op februari 6, 2019

Veranderingen zijn niet altijd slecht, zelfs niet als het om je mail gaat. Nu Mozilla geen gebruik meer maakt van Thunderbird is het tijd om over te stappen naar het beste alternatief dat je helpt al je mails bij te houden. Laten we kijken waarom duizenden gebruikers Mailbird het beste alternatief voor Thunderbird vinden. Mailbird vs Thunderbird Een strakke interface gecombineerd met een interactie die het gemakkelijker maakt je online communicatie te beheren is een goede deal. Mailbird is eenvoudig te gebruiken en het duurt niet meer dan 5 minuten om het te leren kennen. Je verdient een goede mailervaring en dat is precies wat Mailbird je geeft. “Ik heb Mailbird ook voor mijn moeder aangeschaft omdat het zo eenvoudig is te gebruiken. Ze heeft niet veel verstand van computers maar vorige week kreeg ik voor het eerst een mail van haar. Wat een aangename verrassing! 🙂 Mailbird is geweldig – eenvoudig te gebruiken en snel te configureren. Mijn 80-jarige moeder bewijst dat wel” Lars – 12 mei  We kijken naar de volgende punten om te zien of Mailbird ook voor jou het beste alternatief voor Thunderbird is: Lay-out en UI Meest Populaire Features Kosten 1. Lay-out en Gebruikerservaring Thunderbird wordt niet meer bijgewerkt en staat bekend om zijn rommelige en opgeblazen lay-out en gebruikersinterface, waardoor het nogal ingewikkeld is voor nieuwe en zelfs bestaande gebruikers om met de software om te gaan. Als je software dagelijks gebruikt, leer je uiteindelijk hoe je het moet gebruiken. Dat is zelfs het…

What Happened to MailboxApp.com?

Gepost door Viola Eva op januari 30, 2019

Mailbox was an email app for iPhone, introduced in 2013 by a startup going by the name Orchestra. Prior to its inception, more than one million prospective users had signed up to try it. Judging by the hype, the service stood high chances of becoming tremendously popular, yet the tide turned one short month after Mailbox had been launched. Namely, the app was bought by Dropbox, for a reported $100 million in cash and stock. Back then, Dropbox CEO Drew Houston didn’t hide his excitement.  “Many have promised to help us with our overflowing inboxes, but the Mailbox team actually delivered”, Houston was quoted as saying. For a while, the Dropbox-acquired app appeared to be a success. Mailbox for Android and a public beta version for macOS were released in 2014, but then Mailbox’s development was slowed down and, eventually, abandoned altogether, with Mailbox desktop app for Mac never making it out of the beta phase. New features failed to deliver much-needed breakthroughs and were soon given up on. In July 2015, Mailbox was discontinued. The outcome might have seemed surprising to the users, but was not wholly unexpected for the investors, some of which had tried and failed to warn Dropbox decision makers beforehand. Back then, as well as now, it was common knowledge that most users are content with default mail apps. Although businesses admittedly tend to buy software for the employees, people rarely buy it for private purposes. Not to mention, Mailbox was limited to Gmail and…

Best College Apps To Help Students With Studies in 2019

Gepost door Guest op januari 22, 2019

  Most of the students cannot imagine their lives without their smartphones and 2019 will be no different. They use them for communication and entertainment mostly – however, that’s not the only ways smartphones can be used.  These days there are plenty of college apps designed to make our lives easier – and any student can indeed improve their lives a lot by installing some of these apps. Of course, it could be hard to pick the right ones as there are so many. That’s why in this article I want to offer you a list of apps that can make students’ lives more productive. 1. Spotify. If you enjoy listening to music, you should definitely install this app. Many students know Spotify as the place where popular music and latest hits can be found – but it’s not the only reasons why it’s great. Spotify has so many playlists you can listen to while studying. They are created by other students and help you focus on your assignments well enough. Of course, you might need some time to find the right playlists for you – but it’s still much easier than trying to create one by yourself. 2. Google Drive. Google Drive is one of the best cloud services that allow you to save the data you definitely wouldn’t want to lose. Sure, there are plenty of other good apps as well (Dropbox, for example) – but Google Drive offers probably the biggest amount of disk space available: 15GB for…

Social Media Content Guide: How To Write Effective Content in 2019

Gepost door Guest op januari 22, 2019

There’s no point in writing social media content that no one will read. Writing effective social media content is quite easy once we grasp a couple of tips. Approximately 40% of the world’s population has internet access, attracting even a small percentage of that with your content will be invaluable to you. Here’s a list of steps that will guide you write compelling content: 1. Have a Niche What topics will your content be based on? Before you can shift your focus to writing social media articles, its best to identify which fields you’re knowledgeable in and can comfortably write content on. Importantly, identify a niche and stick to it. Whenever we publish articles on topics that we are not conversant in, chances are that we will have too much irrelevant content, not forgetting misguiding information that may cost us our audience. You don’t have to be a ‘jack of all trades,’ chose your niche and let that be your identity. 2. Know Your Audience Do you know your audience? Can you define the persona of your prospective reader? These are among the many important questions regarding your audience that will dictate the nature of your content. Content for an older audience will, of course, be entirely different from that for young adults or kids. This distinction will be crucial in writing effective social media content. Knowing your audience will guide you to write content that’s tailored specifically to them. Otherwise, writing content without a target audience in mind will…

7 Reasons to Have More Than One Email Account in 2019

Gepost door Andrea Loubier op januari 21, 2019

Why have multiple email accounts you might ask? When setting up an email account, your first instinct might be to create one email address for all of your email needs. This way you’ll only need to sign into one location to access your emails, and your logins across the web will all use the same address. For simplicity’s sake, this might seem like a good idea. In reality, the opposite is true. Considering the number of emails people receive on a daily basis, keeping all your emails in one account will actually make email management more complicated, not less. You’ll have a harder time getting to the most important emails as your inbox becomes overloaded with spam and promotional emails. If you’re emailing for personal and professional out of the same account, you run the risk of sending a personal email to a professional contact. Yikes!   Instead, you should have multiple email addresses for different purposes. And if signing into multiple accounts seems troublesome, there’s a simple solution. Using something like the Unified Inbox feature with Mailbird allows you to keep multiple accounts organized in one location. Problem solved! If you’re still not convinced that having multiple email addresses is a good practice, here are 7 reasons you should have more than one email address. 1. To separate business from personal. First and foremost, it’s never a good idea to mix your business and personal inboxes, especially if your personal email address is something goofy from the early days…

Effective Ways to Target Customers Using Email Marketing in 2019

Gepost door Guest op januari 21, 2019

Email marketing is when companies target large markets by sending commercial messages through the electronic mail. When an effective strategy is put in place, successful email marketing leads to brand awareness, customer loyalty, and highly personalized content. In its broadest sense, it is mainly used for the purpose of enhancing the customer-business relationship. In the following article we will describe some effective ways to target customers using email marketing. An effective email marketing campaign and strategy can beguile potential prospects, leads, and consumers, concurrently increasing the return on investment of the business. Attractive headline The only way content can stimulate sales is when it is visible. It can only be seen when it is opened and it can only be opened when it is attractive. A good headline can bring forth positive rewards. According to Taylor Glass, CMO of SolidEssay, consumer behavior is dependent on the attention a tag line sends across. A certain amount of attention is necessary for information to be perceived for it to activate people’s senses. Based on research, 47% of people select the emails they open or not, depending on the subject line. Crafting attractive headlines should be grounded on the ability of the content to meet the consumers’ needs. The subject line should communicate the functionality of the message and drive curiosity and urgency to potential clients. The headline should be short, language-friendly, concise and personalized. Implementing consumerism tactics in emails in the consumer-driven world is one of the ways to boost any business.…
