In this guide, I want to share my number one productivity hack, that will allow you take back control of your online business and free up that highly valuable time we seem to have so little of these days.
What You Will Learn
- The FREE tools I use to manage ALL of my email accounts
- An easy to follow guide to setting up your devices (iPhone and Email Clients)
- A key tool I use to simplify everything I do online
With the number of websites we create, it's easy to lose track of your tasks and objectives and become overwhelmed.
A while ago I fell into a habit of creating a new email address for every new niche site I built. I wanted to keep everything separate for tracking purposes, however, these email accounts have amassed over the years.
Here's a selection of the accounts I have;
- A personal vanity email
- A Hotmail account
- A Yahoo account
- Admin and Support email addresses for my limited company
- LOTS AND LOTS of niche site email addresses
Managing this many email accounts started to drive me nuts and demand a great deal of my time.
As the old saying goes, “time is money”, well I decided to tackle this problem head-on and make some drastic, yet easy to implement changes to the way I manage email and tasks for my online business.
My Previous Set Up
Shoot back a few months and I was using outlook with up to 50 email addresses added, all directed into a single inbox.
Doesn't sound too bad you say, well what if I told you that these accounts, CANNOT SYNC with the server.
This meant that any changes I made, emails read, sent and deleted, were unable to sync between multiple devices such as outlook and my iPhone. This became a nightmare to keep track of what I had and hadn't responded too.
My Current Set Up
Fast forward to the present, and after making the changes I am about to explain, I can now manage a single ‘master email” using any email client I choose. This single email account receives ALL of my messages from EVERY SINGLE email account I own.
What's more, I can reply to any message, from the original email address the message was sent too, which means I don't even have to reveal my ‘master email” to the outside world!
With my iPhone set up in the correct manner, the messages I view, edit and delete, are now synced to my ‘master email”, meaning everything I do is replicated on all of my devices.
So what is this master solution I talk of?
