[Video] Managing Gmail Tabs

Last week, I wrote a post on Babble about what users can do to either 1) Make sure they see all their email if they decide to use the new Gmails or 2) Get rid of the email tabs altogether. In that post, I poked a little fun at who would really be mad about the new changes:

“Essentially, Gmail tabs sort your inbox before you have to do anything. Based on my research, some people love the ideal of being able to click between tabs to quickly triage their inbox. Others have displayed their hatred of the tabs because there is a good chance email marketers and newsletter pushers won’t be as effective they will miss important information due to simply forgetting to check the tabs.”

That was a kind of a low-blow because I know folks who do pretty well reaching out to their followers via email. I wish I was doing better with my own email campaign, so I was low-key hatin’.

“The truth shall set you free”

In addition to that, I’ve already fielded questions/concerns on how to disable the tabs. So I thought I would kill two birds with one stone and share this video I found on a post from Social Media Examiner about how Email marketers can best educate their followers on how to organize or delete Gmail tabs.

What do you think about the new Gmail tabs? Love ’em or Hate ’em?

    Personally I love the new gmail tabs, however as a professional who send newsletters to my clients this post brought up a potential problem that I did not think about. I now know how I can try to counteract it. Thanks for the information !

  • LOL at “low-key hatin’” 🙂

    I just turned on tabs today so we’ll see if I love it or hate it! 🙂

    I was skeptical at first, but now I love the new tabs – they appeal to my organized side.

    Hate ’em. But I am a marketer. Also I get press releases from folks and sometimes remember to look at the tab AFTER the event is over. boo
