5 Tools to Make Your Email Smarter, Faster, Better Read more in Duct Tape Marketing by John Jantsch
I believe the email has been with us for some time. Despite all the efforts made by app makers and social networks, email is not dead. In fact, I get tons of emails from the same social networks that were about to eliminate emails.
Email, like it or not, is a tool that almost everyone has, uses and everyone checks on a daily basis, so the commercial use of email as an external communication tool may not be going anywhere anytime soon. Used to be.
I say external because I believe some tools like Basecamp, Slack and Asana allow you to replace some of the internal email and work better in teams that need frequent iterations of conversations to collaborate, discuss, and share. tracking is required.
The key to making email flow externally is to find tools that make it smarter, faster, and better than the way you work.
Below are five such tools that I have worked on in my email toolkit.
by contact – I guess you could call Contactly a lightweight CRM tool, but it really shines when it comes to managing relationships that happen via email. It has lots of email functionality like scheduled sending and open tracking, but it also helps you prioritize your most important relationships and keep them in “buckets” that prompt you to stay in touch if you haven’t missed a set amount of time. Haven’t communicated with anyone inside.
Right Inbox – With Right Inbox’s Gmail extension, you can compose email now, which is scheduled to be sent at the right time later. This tool is especially useful for professionals who deal with clients or colleagues in different time zones. Right Inbox has built-in time zone support, so you don’t have to start searching and counting when scheduling your scheduled emails.
calendly – This tool helps you schedule meetings without emailing back and forth. Simply set the meeting type and drop a link in your email and let people find a time that works for both of you.
Email Hunter – This tool helps you a lot to find anyone’s email address. There is a Chrome extension, so if you are on a website just click the Email Hunter button and it will reveal the email addresses associated with the domain.
hey.com – Completely revamp your inbox by allowing this service to monitor and reject any emails you haven’t authorized. This is a very aggressive approach but may be the only way to get a fresh start on email.
