⚠️ When conducting email outreach, your inbox can become overloaded and disorganized. This can result in delayed replies and missed opportunities with potential leads.

That is why you should consider implementing several straightforward yet highly effective techniques to improve email management. By adopting practices such as employing labels, prioritizing emails, unsubscribing from irrelevant subscriptions, and setting up filters, you can streamline your inbox, reclaim valuable time, and enhance your concentration.

We have compiled a concise list of tips and tricks for maintaining a clean and well-organized inbox.

Sort it out 📑

Use labels

Organize your emails into different labels/folders based on their importance, type, or sender. This makes it easier to locate specific emails and keeps your inbox tidy.

💡For instance, when you need to establish priorities while doing an email outreach, consider labeling your emails as positive, neutral, or negative. This approach will assist you in determining which emails warrant immediate attention and which ones can be addressed later on..

Use filters

Create filters to automatically sort emails into specific labels/folders based on keywords, sender, or other criteria.

An example is setting a filter on all replies from clients that has the same subject.

  1. Go to your inbox settings by visiting: https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/?tab=rm&ogbl#settings/filters
  2. Click on "Create a new filter"
  3. Use the subject of an outreach message from the campaign you are currently running, then click on "Create filter"
