One question I often get when I’m helping a client with an email issue or a Google Apps setup is about multiple e-mailboxes. If you have a primary email address of firstname.lastname@example.org – by itself isn’t too flexible. It eats up one email address on your hosting’s mailbox quota – and doesn’t offer a lot of options for sorting different types of mail. For example, the email address email@example.com should have alternatives such as firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org – each would direct messages addressed to them to the same mailbox. So, how to accomplish this without having multiple mailboxes?
Not hovering over your laptop or smartphone all day sounds like fantasyland to any service provider who uses email as their primary communication method. You don’t want to be perceived as unresponsive, but in the effort to appear attentive, you can really wreck your daily workflow (costing you time and money) with endless interruptions responding to seemingly “urgent” messages, that in reality just aren’t.

Over the all time that I’ve been helping clients setup Gmail and Google Apps on their computers or phones, one thing I noticed is that there is so much information on the Gmail help pages – its very easy to get annoyed and frustrated when trying to find a quick answer to a simple setup or troubleshooting question. When I setup a client’s new Google Apps – there’s always a search for the exact server names and port numbers. So, I made a point of saving these URLs in my Evernote account for easy reference.
With all the buzz out there about Google Plus and Google Apps, I get a lot of questions from clients about why Google Apps just seems to be everywhere these days. With GA’s recent expansion comes lots of great reasons to convert your domain’s email and virtual office over to this incredibly flexible service. It’s almost too much to blog about, so I thought a teleclass would do the trick!
An email marketing campaign should be attractive and reflect your business branding. While complex design layouts with multiple columns, boxes, callouts, and lots of graphics (similar to paper newsletter layouts of yesteryear) can deliver a ‘wow’ factor, there’s a reality check that should be considered before you spend time and dollars on a complex mailer layout.
I’ve set up GA for numerous clients – and all of them love it, so I’m very excited to launch my new easy-to-purchase Google Apps Setup Service Package that includes all the back-end techie stuff, plus “done-for-you” mail client (Outlook) configuration and web-based training.
