Top 6 Tools for Taking Back Control of Your Inbox

Posted by Rahul Gupta
We’re all a little guilty of letting our email inbox run away from us. We sign up for some newsletters, we don’t clean up the spam, and we don’t start cleaning it up until it’s too late. If you’re ready to claim back control of your email inbox, then we recommend these six tools. 
Tools for Taking Back Control of Inbox

1. Unroll.me

When you’re taking back control of your inbox, the first step is to unsubscribe from all of those newsletters you’ve found yourself subscribed to over the years. Unfortunately, it’s not that easy to unsubscribe from all of these services manually. But this is an entirely free tool that allows you to mass unsubscribe from all of these newsletters. You can quickly pick and choose which ones you unsubscribe from, or just unsubscribe from everything.

2. FollowUpThen

FollowUpThen is another pretty easy to use tool that will alert you about sending a follow-up email. The notification that you receive, along with who receives it, are controlled by which field of the email you put your reminder in. Just put the time you would like to be reminded, followed by @followupthen.com (ex 3hours@followupthen.com).

If anyone put the address in the BCC field, then only he/she gets a follow-up. If you CC it, then both you and the client get a follow. If you put it in the “To” field, then your future self-gets the email. It works with any client and is free up to 50 emails a month. You need to pay a little extra for more than that, and you get some additional features for your money.

3. HubSpot Sales Free

If you’ve ever wondered about when and how your emails are opened then, the HubSpot Sales Free Chrome extension is for you. It lets you set up live notifications for some things and works with both Outlook and Gmail.

It also opens up a contact information sidebar that tells you about the person that you’re sending an email to including your history with them, their social media content, and any mutual connections.

You can get the email notifications with the free versions as well as the option, so schedule emails ahead of time. There are some additional features, but they will cost you $50 a month.

4. IFTTT

IFTTT is short for “If This Then That” and it’s a brilliant productivity tool that can be used to control just about anything with “Recipes” made up of “If this then that” commands. There are some ways you can manage your inbox with this tool including getting text messages when you receive an email, automatically uploading email attachments to Dropbox, saving emails to Evernote and so much more.

5. Google Inbox

Google have learned about how people use emails from their Gmail service. They decided to create their new inbox system, simply called Inbox, with their findings. Inbox is less of an email tool that you might use to group your emails together. Instead, it’s more of a message management tool designed to save you time.

You have the option of processing emails as tasks when they come in. So you could choose “snooze” when an email arrives to be reminded about it later. You can also have Inbox remind you about an email when you reach a particular location if it’s an email you need to deal with at a different place.

One of the best things about Google Inbox is that’s totally mobile-friendly. You can install the Google Inbox app on your Android or iOS device and access it on your computer.

6. NetHunt

A large number of businesses use Gmail as their CRM, and NetHunt is that tool that shapes your inbox into CRM. Using NetHunt CRM for Sales, you can gain new customers and increase your sales. Your emails contain all the necessary information about your clients.

Moreover, you can organize your Gmail into separate folders such as sales pipelines, bug-tracking service, and product catalog. Or you can create and customize your folder. Since you want to make sure that your clients have read each of the emails you sent, there is an Open Tracking tool for you. Set Follow-Up reminders in your Gmail in order not to forget to reply to an important email. Use Follow-Ups to empty inbox from unread emails and turn them into a to-do list.
