Filtering You Email Is Great BUT...There's More.

So, I thought I had it made. I had a bunch of emails coming in and had troubles with keeping them all organized so i finally learned how to put filters in my gmail. For a video that shows you how to filter your gmail go HERE. I got that all setup and was so excited that I didn't have to worry about finding all my emails from so many people and programs. There was only one problem. And I just found out about it this week. Even when you have your email filtered, they are constantly changing their criteria of what is considered "Spam". So, just because you have filters setup DOESN'T mean that you will get everything your supposed to. I have had some mails from trusted sources that are already in my email contacts and they still went to spam. That really sucks if you happen to be using an auto responder. Meaning, if you tell people to reply to your auto responder email, a lot of the time their reply email gets shoved in spam despite the fact that that it's from a trusted (your) email address. Now this sucks for two reasons. One is that you miss important reply emails for people interested in your offers and help. And the second is that the spam folder empties itself automatically every 30 days. So if you miss a reply email and it goes 30 days, it's gone forever, a missed opportunity. Plus I always worried that it kind of made me look like an A-hole, because as far as they know I asked them to reply and then blew them off. So Be sure to check your spam daily. If you find emails in there that you don't want in spam, then star them, mark them "not spam" and add that person's email address to your contacts list. I will be doing a video on this soon, so stay tuned at my Profile page here at Leased Ad Space or on my YouTube channel.

That's all I've got for now.

 So until we meet again Constant Reader, I wish you much success!

My wife Elizabeth and I live in Bangor, Maine and I work full-time as a RN at a local hospital. In 2010 I started working online Part-time after my mother was disabled by a heart attack. I wanted to build extra income to help with her health care. What started as a way to make extra income has grown into a passion to build my Part-time business to the point that I can quit my full-time job and still keep all the bills paid. Over the years I have learned a great deal about marketing on the Internet. I have learned many things that don’t work and a few things that do. Over the last year, it has started to come together for me. One thing I have learned is that for me to succeed, I have to help others succeed. So now my focus is on teaching others what I have learned works so that they can avoid the money wasting struggles I went through and finally start making money on the Internet.
