Many people trying to use GMail for business might not be aware that it's possible to associate your favourite long-time domain email, or even your shiny new company email to your old Google Account.
The setting can be found here: https://myaccount.google.com/privacy#personalinfo
Just add the additional permanent emails to your aliases, and it might appear something like my setup shown:
Multiple Google Account Aliases
If Google says your email is already associated with another Google Account, it's no problem - so long as you still can either remember your password or still have access to the email for that account. Call Tomachi Corp today for support 0212576422.
I'm gonna hit you with the creme de la creme of what I've learnt about email and business, here goes...
- Consider using GMail.com as your main UI (seems you already mite!)
- Learn the shortcuts, they need to be enabled first in settings (Cog symbol top right corner)
- Shortcuts best to learn:
- Go to Inbox: GI
- Reply: R
- Trash: #
- Spam: !
- Scroll focus up and down: J K
- Decrease / Increase importance: - =
- Install Undo Send in gmail amazing useful
- Install Sidekick to see when people open and click your email
- Use Google Analytics tracking URLs in your email signature links (like I do)
- Use a Google Analytics invisible tracking pixel in your email signature (like I do)
- I can now create an "audience" which is people whom have opened by email (I think)
- Put tracking in a "rollup" Google Analytics account that is on *all* your web properties as a secondary custom-named tracker, useful for "sans-website" sources/platforms, and cross-domain tracking (Hey I got off-topic, man I love analytics too much)
- Setup Canned Responses for use during longer personal emails:
- your email, bank account, common URLs, Facebook/Google plus URLs, maps
- jam your address in there, makes it quick to dump in later from that palette
- You can then use filters to automatically send any of your preset Canned Responses, I used this once when I was looking for flatmate from a craigslist-like site (TradeMe) - too many responses so I had them fill out a Google Forms form first 🙂
- See if you can filter by "Unsubscribe" and automatically label these as Newsletters
- If it works well you can make it Skip Inbox
