This screencast covers two Gmail tips that will make a huge difference in your ability to process your email. This will be old news to some of you, but after helping a few friends with these tips over the past couple of weeks, I decided that I’d share them publicly to help those who don’t know about them.
You’ll see that I suggest logging out and back into Gmail when you’ve enabled new features. It’s not absolutely necessary, but it’s the most reliable way to ensure that your features work properly. Also, there are a few pops because I used a different microphone, but besides that, the content was good enough that I didn’t want to rerecord it.
Did you know that you can use Gmail for your own domain? You’ll notice in this video that I am. Check out Google Apps if you’d like the features of Gmail but want to keep to use your own domain name. There’s a free version and a paid version, too.
Would you like to learn more about effective email management? Check out Email Triage – it’s a packaged set that includes a guided audio program, a 19-page ebook, and a worksheet that has the S.T.A.R. method in a handy 3×5 format. It’ll help you calm email stress and overwhelm in 30 minutes (or less) – and you can pick it up for the reasonable price of $10.
