Gmail, What Are You Doing??

If you're a Gmail user, please keep reading. (If you're not a Gmail user, this doesn't apply and 
you can return to your "regularly scheduled programming.)

As you're probably aware by now, Gmail has rolled out a new "inbox organization" system. Your inbox now has "tabs" where your emails are "sorted" for you into one of five categories:

  • Primary
  • Social
  • Promotions
  • Updates
  • Forums

The problem is, Gmail decides FOR YOU which category emails are routed into. Unfortunately for you (and me!), emails from me (ones that will come from Resume Writers' Digest and/or BeAResumeWriter) will automatically be put into the "Promotions" tab ... because Gmail doesn't realize that the majority of the emails I'm sending you aren't "promotional" at all -- but solid content. Invitations to free, value-packed trainings. Links to take surveys (that I share the results from freely with the careers industry community). Free special reports to help you in your resume writing business, and with your clients.

But you may not see them, unless you take swift action!

Check your Promotions tab at the top of your Gmail account. Choose an email from me (they come from Resume Writers' Digest or Bridget Brooks or and drag and drop it to your Primary inbox tab. A message will pop up asking if you want to do this for all future emails from me. Click YES and you'll be assured you won't miss anything.

If you want to completely remove the new tab feature in Gmail, follow these steps:
  1. Go to the Settings box in the upper righthand corner of your inbox
    and select "Settings." 
  2. Click on the "Inbox" tab and unselect all categories except "Primary." 
  3. Save your changes.
That's all there is to it!

Unfortunately, if you don't take action, you'll only be able to find my emails in your "Promotion" tab. Which is fine ... if you check that regularly. Otherwise, you'll miss out on valuable free teleseminars, articles, and resources to help you grow your resume writing business!

This Huffington Post article includes a video showing you the changes.
