Have you noticed all the BUZZ about the changes at Gmail?

If you have a Gmail account or an email list of subscribers, this is an important heads-up.

Gmail (which is owned by Google) has implemented a new filtering system automatically decides what shows up your inbox.


(If you have a Gmail account and haven’t seen this feature yet, you will. Gmail is rolling out this change over time and eventually all Gmail users will automatically have it.)

Before, everything was categorized how you wanted it.

But now, Gmail has decided to implement a new feature that filters YOUR email how THEY see fit.

Imagine how frustrated you would feel if you opted-in to receive emails about important trainings, resources, tools and strategies to grow your coaching business but you didn’t see them because Gmail decided not to put them in your inbox.

I wouldn’t like that and I bet you wouldn’t either.

Here’s How to Take Charge of Your Gmail Inbox:

***********************************

Just above your inbox, Gmail will now put your emails into 5 categories:

* Primary
* Social
* Promotions
* Updates
* Forums
 
The problem is, Gmail won’t know you’re focused on your coaching business and will automatically put the messages I send you into “Promotions”.

As long as my messages are in “Promotions” – you won’t see them because “Promotions” skips your inbox.

How To Take Back Your Inbox

Here’s what you can do to make sure we stay connected:

#1 – Find one of my emails in “Promotions” and drag it into “Primary”

#2 – A pop-up will appear to ask if you want to do this for all future messages. Click “Yes”.

#3 – That’s it. Super easy and now Gmail will know we’re friends!
 
And you won’t miss any of my messages to you :-)

BONUS TIP if you want to totally get rid of this new Gmail feature:

=> Go to “Settings” [the icon on the top right corner of your screen above your inbox] and select “Settings.”

=> Click on the “Inbox” tab and “Unselect” all categories but “Primary” and then click “Save Changes.”

That’s all you need to do to regain control of your in-box.

Hope this is helpful too you.

I look forward to staying connected!
