Tip Tuesday: Boomerang for Gmail- A Blogger Resource

tip tuesday maegal

A couple of days ago I was scheduling a post to go live for a sponsor when I realized something; I was able to schedule the post, I was able to schedule a FB page and Twitter announcement, but I would have to remember to email the sponsor about this post as I could schedule one.

Or could I? I searched and low and behold, such a thing exists! Hooray for me. What I stumbled upon is this service that can be used with Gmail. Boomerang allows you to set up a specific time you would like an email to send. Thus far, it’s worked perfectly for me. I am SO excited I found it, and the other services it offers are great, too! I’ve used them all with success.

Continue on to read about the other awesome services Boomerang offers!

Send an email later

“With Boomerang, you can write an email now and schedule it to be sent automatically at the perfect time. Just write the message as you normally would, then click the Send Later button. Use our handy calendar picker or our text box that understands language like “next Monday” to tell Boomerang when to send your message. We’ll take it from there.”

The best follow up reminders

“Want a cleaner inbox, but don’t want to lose track of important messages? Use Boomerang to take messages out of your inbox until you actually need them. Just click the Boomerang button when you have an email open, and choose when you need it again. Boomerang will archive the message. At the time you chose, we’ll bring it back to your inbox, marked unread, starred, or even at the top of your message list.”

Remind you if you don’t hear back

“There are times you need to make sure you follow up within a specific time frame after sending a message. You can select to only be reminded if nobody replies, or regardless. This way you won’t let messages slip through the crack and will never forget to follow up with people.”

Thanks for reading!
