Every professional in the business world, regardless of level of authority, has been sending emails for the past 15 years, if not the past 20. In all of those years not much has changed about how emailing works. Sure our preferences for receiving certain types of emails have changed, and we’re constantly trying to apply the best writing practices in the hopes of improving our writing competencies for emailing, but the basic structure of the email platforms like Gmail, Hotmail, and Outlook function much the as they did so many years ago. You would think that with 191.4 billion emails sent each day (Radicati Group), and with workers spending an average of 13 hours a week in their inbox (McKinsey & Company), emailing would have evolved more.
Well I’m here to tell you that it is evolving. There exist browser extensions built for emailing (specifically for Gmail) that can boost your emailing capabilities. In this post, I’m going to show you 4 of my favourite ones that will help you supercharge your emailing.
