Handling email overload is one of the daily challenges we have been facing for years and there doesn’t seem to be a permanent solution except building our capability to read and respond to more and more emails everyday.

HubSpot columnist Ginny Mineo has shared seven steps to help marketers handle the email overload when they are using multiple inboxes.

Mineo says, “My email inbox acts as my to-do list. Some of my emails are threads around a pending project, some are about a relationship I’m working with a new writer, and each one requires a certain response and prioritization in my day.

That’s where Gmail’s “Multiple Inboxes” can help.

First, let’s define some terms:

  • Primary Inbox: This is the main Gmail inbox most users currently have. It stores all your email as it comes in and only leaves this section when you archive an email or move it to another folder.
  • Multiples Inboxes: These are the new mini inboxes we are creating alongside your primary inbox to organize your inbox into multiple sections based on the email type. They can only be implemented for accounts that do not use Gmail’s Promotions/etc tabs.

Interested in multiple inboxes? Below are the seven steps I took to organize and implement mine. As result, I’m saving hours of time in my daily email routine — and you can too”.
