Gmail For Windows: Here’s a Better Way

Posted by Jason Ephraim on January 24, 2017

The Best Way To Manage Gmail For Windows Users You probably have a Gmail account. In fact, according to worldwide statistics there’s a good chance you have more than one of them. Google has announced that Gmail now has more than 1 billion monthly active users – up from the 900 million the company announced last year and up from 425 million 2012.  It’s a no- brainer why Gmail is on fire right now. Its app has over 90.7 million monthly users for a reason. It’s an easy to use interface which is well integrated with cloud storage, making file sharing easy (Google drive), offers great work-collaboration opportunities (Google Docs) and has countless other features from Google Spreadsheets to Google Slides. Statistics even show that 94% of Gmail users use the integrated translation services in their Gmail account. However, while Gmail has made it big, they have really not done justice to PC users. Firstly, using the Gmail site itself to manage these accounts presents a few serious problems: You always have to be connected to the internet It’s difficult to manage multiple accounts It’s only as secure as your internet connection Considering that Gmail makes up over 85% of all global users worldwide, you may find it odd that there is no official application for Gmail for windows. There is indeed no way for a Windows user to manage accounts directly from a PC and there is nothing in the app store that presents this function. This is the least bit…

Almost 23,ooo people search for on google to get access to their Gmail account every day Given that a good “average” speed for typing on the computer is around 330 characters per minute (or CPM), that means that people spend a total of roughly 15 hours a day worldwide typing into their browser to access their webmail. That’s a long time! And that’s not even including the redundant and often long page-loading time. Think about it, logging into Gmail to get to Google Drive involves navigating close to 4 pages like the Google search prompt page, the search results, and the Gmail login. Then once you’re finally logged into Gmail, you need to find Google Drive to perform your next set of tasks. To do this multiple times over the course of a work-day is quite exhausting – and there are far better alternatives! Regardless if you are new to Gmail, webmail in general, or if you are a newcomer to the web – we are going to show you 4 ways to drastically cut down (and even completely remove) the need for you to type into your computer in order to access your Gmail account. All of these ways are safe, secure, and provide you direct access to manage your Gmail account the same as if you manually entered and clicked the link. Before we get to the best ways to access Gmail, let’s first address the issue behind: Why typing out into your search engine is…

Email Marketing & Millennials: Do We Think Email Sucks?

Posted by Guest on September 7, 2016

Ever since Mark Zuckerberg declared “we don’t think that a modern messaging system is going to be email” it set the email marketing sphere into a frenzy. Are social media messaging apps like Whatsapp, Facebook, and Snapchat going to be the fatal blow to the email lists we have worked so hard on growing and nurturing over the years? All because of those damn meddling millennials? Well, no. Millennials, like myself, love our email. We are just as addicted to it as our social media, so much so that we are the highest demographic who thinks we will still be kicking it with our inboxes in 10-years time . But we do use email to communicate in a different way compared to previous generations. With the sheer volume of social media messages going out every second of the day across an increasing amount of platforms, it can be hard for the average millennial to keep up with your brand. This is why when it comes to consumer-to-brand communication, social media is for stalking our ex-boyfriends and email is for making sure we don’t miss out on that 50% sale. Here is why email marketing DOESN’T suck – you are just doing it wrong. 1. Millennials Want To See Your Brand In Their Inboxes If you are wanting in on the $200 billion buying power that millennials hold – you are going to need to up your EMAIL game not your social. According to a recent report by the UK email…

New Gmail account security alert warns of Government attacks

Posted by Christin on March 31, 2016

Google announced on Thursday that it has expanded it’s Safe Browsing alerts to inform Gmail users of the possibility their Gmail account may have been subject to suspicious government activity. In 2012, Gmail began alerting users if there was a risk of state-sponsored attacks by including the information in a top-page banner. However, users will now see a full-page alert with more detailed information and options to beef up their security if they feel they are, indeed, being targeted. Image: Google Unfortunately, Google admits there is a chance some alerts may be triggered incorrectly or may in fact be false alarms. However, Google is not releasing how these alerts are identifying malicious government-sponsored gmail security intrusions in order to protect their methods for identifying them. Thankfully, Google has estimated that fewer than 0.1% of all Gmail accounts will be subject to these security alerts. Google ads that most of these users seem to be journalists, activists, and policy-makers.

7 Awesome Gmail Email Client Tips

Posted by Christin on March 23, 2016

Many people think of their Gmail email client as a repository of messages from colleagues, friends and seemingly endless amounts of spam. But depending on which email client you use, your email can be so much more than that. At first glance the Gmail client seems like any other free email service. But anyone who has used it knows that it is probably one of the most comprehensive free project management tools out there. If the notion of your email service as a user friendly project management and email service leaves you scratching your head, no worries. Here are some pointers on how to use Gmail more efficiently and make your digital life a little easier.  1. How Your Email Client Can “Undo” Embarrassing Emails As long as human beings have had the ability to send bits of text and images via the internet, there have been people who wished they could take some of those messages back or banish them into oblivion. Everyone knows the fleeting feeling of satisfaction that comes with sending a piece of correspondence via email only to realize that the message didn’t go to the intended party, contained a shame inducing typo or worse yet, didn’t include the attachment that warranted the email being sent in the first place.   The good people at Google have created a feature that could considerably cut down the frustration and embarrassment that follows sending an email that isn’t up to snuff. That feature or action goes by the unremarkable name of “Undo…
