A quick round up of some of the most useful email apps out there
In this post I share some of the Red Sift team’s favourite email tools in the hope they might help you too. In the snippets I’ve shared I only talk about the free features but with all tools below you can unlock even more if you’re willing to part with some cold, hard cash!
A super nifty tool and a personal favourite of mine. This Chrome plugin makes sure you never misspell misspell, confuse your you’res and, finally, rid emails, of wayward commas, forever!*
*Yes I know those commas shouldn’t be there — I was trying to prove a point.
This little number allows you to schedule emails to be sent at the most effective time. And if you’re busy when an email arrives, just snooze it to come back to your inbox later. It’s a great tool for any sales people looking to boost engagement rates by sending their emails at the time they are most likely to be opened.
If you obsess over the blue double-tick in WhatsApp then Streak is the tool for you! It gives you a neat little timeline of every view your email gets so you can time your follow up call perfectly or call out someone’s nonsense when they claim they “never got your email”.
Sortd adds a skin to your Gmail to make it akin to Kanban board — perfect for those who like to deal in to-do lists and find it frustrating when a vital email drops below the bottom of the home screen.
With Unroll.me you can cleanse your inbox of all those annoying newsletters and subscriptions that you seem to have been signed up for when you bought that one thing once.
And finally, now you have your inbox functioning perfectly, make sure your email domain is too! OnDMARC helps you to deploy DMARC, the email authentication protocol, quickly and simply so you can protect your email identity from phishing attacks.
So that’s our list, what are your email must haves? Drop us a line and share your secret to a happy inbox!
