Yesterday I started the series about cloud based tools for Realtors, and I discussed Gmail Offline. Gmail Offline allows you to read messages, manage your inbox and compose mail all without an active Internet connection.
Today, we are going to put your Gmail account on steroids with Boomerang. Boomerang is a Firefox or Chrome browser based add on for Gmail. Boomerang allows you to schedule emails you've written to be sent at a future day and time. Another cool feature that it offers is that it allows you to snooze emails in your inbox which will temporarily send them away. Boomerang will bring those snoozed items back at the date and time you specify. Another thing that Boomerang allows you to do is monitor your outgoing messages and remind you to follow up if you don't receive a response after a specified number of days. Boomerang is free if you only use it 10 times per month. If you use it more than that, which I will almost guarantee you will, then you'll need to sign up for a subscription for $5 a month. Trust me on this one, Boomerang is a bargain at twice the price.
We beefed up your Gmail account today using Boomerang and tomorrow we'll put your life on auto pilot while trying to spell.
