Editor’s Note – For many of us, having multiple email accounts is the norm. And keeping track of the ebb and flow of all those messages is not only daunting, but can be costly in terms of lost business opportunity. Contributor Diane Eschenbach found an app that helps solve the problem.
Did you forget to answer an email, or did you lose track of that other client that never got back to you? It happens to us all, but in business, slip-ups like these can cost you dearly in credibility, income, and missed opportunities. Don’t believe me? I recently wrote to the CEO of one of the top ten retail chains in the world and got a response directly from them within 24 hours. Successful people don’t leave their emails to chance. It matters. If they can do it, we can do it too, and we don’t even need a huge staff of employees.
Lucky for us, there’s now a handy little app that will not only follow up on your emails while you sleep, but can perform email marketing, search your entire account, and more. It’s called Boomerang for Android. It’s uncomplicated and easy to setup. Much like Tinder, the popular dating app, you just swipe left or right to decide what to do with an email. Clever, huh?
As we all know, emails have replaced phone calls. You can reach across the globe simply, cheaply, and quickly. This is the reason we see emails as an indispensable media of marketing, and why products like Boomerang for Android are created. It just takes a second to schedule an email to be sent at a later time or date, a few moments to tag an entire contact group to get an email campaign later, or to return all your emails about a particular project back to you on a specific date. All without having to open your email accounts to set tags, schedule, or respond. A total time-saver. That leaves more time for you to take a nap. Just turn all your emails to the sweet snooze option!
Boomerang for Android can become your personal secretary, so you can take all the advantages of email marketing and follow-up with you. In addition to its sleek design, it packs some pretty powerful features:
– Search through all your messages across all Gmail folders
– Access to all labels
– Integration with your phone contacts for auto-complete
– Multi-account support with easy account switching
– Email signatures
– Customizable intuitive multi-gesture support
– View and include attachments
– Infinite scrolling in inbox
– Auto-complete email addresses as you type
– Snooze email messages
– Schedule messages to be sent later
– Track responses to your emails
To get this app, go to the Google Play Store and choose Boomerang for Android (Baydin) the email app for Gmail and Microsoft Exchange (more services coming soon). It’s free. This app will change the way you conduct email marketing on the fly while helping your business grow.
