(gmail) How many times have you seen an email in your inbox and said to yourself, I’ll get back to that later? We all do it, because we never really want to deal with the email immediately, but we also don’t want to forget about it and miss out on whatever opportunity it may present. Luckily, there are some settings in Gmail that can change this way of thinking forever. Get More Out of Gmail With These Reply and Follow Up Settings
The Beginner’s Guide to Using Email Automation

Nudge is a useful email automation setting in gmail that lets you send a gentle reminder to someone you didn’t get a reply from. Setting up Nudge is quick, easy, and can help make your follow-up process easier by nudging those who didn’t respond.
First, check your gmail settings (settings > account > notifications) and go to the Nudge notifications tab. There you’ll see three options: Nudge after one day, Nudge after two days, and Nudge after three days. If you want to nudge people immediately, don’t select any of these options. If you want to wait one day before sending an email notification, select the first option. If you want to wait two days before sending an email notification, select the second option. For three days worth of waiting time, select the third option.
The Best (And Most Fun) Way to Use Email Autoresponders
Make it easier for your customers to connect with you and one another by creating automated email responses that go out to all relevant contacts when someone sends a specific message. For example, if you set up an autoresponders with email templates, every time someone contacts you requesting a quote on your service, they will receive a customized response with prices and information on your business. Another example is using an auto-responder as a thank-you note to everyone who visits your website. When people click on the contact us button or fill out the form at the bottom of your site, their messages will be sent directly to you in the inbox with any attachments intact – no more spending hours clicking through spam folders trying to find them!
8 Tips For Writing Great Subject Lines
Writing subject lines is one of the most important parts to writing a successful email. If you can’t grab someone’s attention with your subject line, they’re not going to open it- regardless of how well written the body of the email is. Here are eight tips for writing great subject lines.
Ask a question You’ve probably seen subject lines that say Any news? or What’s happening?. Questions give readers a sense that this could be an interesting read before they open it. Plus, questions get them to think about their own responses. For example: Have you tried ____?
Use an emoji It might seem silly but even something as simple as a thumbs up emoji at the end of your subject line will make people more likely to open it if it feels like there might be some praise coming their way. Just make sure the smiley face doesn’t come off as sarcastic because then no one will want to respond.
Create Auto-Responder Emails
Auto-responder emails are a set of pre-written messages that will be sent automatically to people when they send you an email. The great thing about this is that it can save time by not requiring you to come up with a message every time someone sends you an email. You can create one or more auto-responder messages in advance, then schedule them to go out at the appropriate time.
Write Better Subject Lines
Subject lines in emails don’t always communicate the right message. In an attempt to fix this problem, Gmail made a change to its reply and follow up setting that lets you edit the subject line before sending it. Here’s how to use this setting:
1) Write your email as usual with your desired subject line.
2) Change the subject line after you’ve written your email.
3) Click on Reply at the top-left corner or Reply All at the top-right corner, depending on what you want to do.
4) Edit the subject line if necessary and then click on Send.
Setting Up Your First Automatic Followup Sequence
If you have a lot of emails to reply to but don’t want to spend all day doing so, try setting up an automatic followup sequence in your inbox. Start by changing the settings in your Gmail tab by clicking on the gear icon in the top right corner. Click Settings > General > Reply & follow-up. The first option is how often you would like to receive a reminder for this email or messages that are similar. I recommend keeping it at every 24 hours. Next, choose which contacts will be included in this automated process by selecting their name from the list below. And finally, set how many days before sending another reminder you would like it sent out. Click Save Changes when finished!
