Need to Manage Your Email Better?
Try Boomerang for Gmail
One of the most common issues my coaching clients want help with- is managing their email better. My coaching clients describe problems with forgetting to send emails, not following up on emails they sent, not prioritizing emails well and not tracking their correspondence.
The good news is that the latest in email technology can help with all of these issues.
You can schedule emails to send at any time and track responses to follow up with Boomerang for Gmail. For those of you who Have Microsoft Outlook as their mail client, Baydin, the company who makes this software has a similar product for Microsoft Outlook listed at the end of this article.

The Response Tracking feature reminds you to follow up on messages if you don’t get a response by a certain time.
Boomerang can track which links have been clicked in your email.
You can select to be reminded if nobody has clicked the links in your email.
Use Boomerang to remove messages from your inbox until you actually want to deal with them. Just click the Boomerang button when you have an email open, and choose when you want to see it again.

Boomerang has a read receipt feature which sends an email to you when a message has been read if you want to know. You can select to be reminded if nobody has read your email as well. In other words, if the person you are emailing doesn’t reply within a predetermined number of days, Boomerang will send the email back to you for follow up.
