This is particularly true in the digital marketing realm, where there can be dozens of online accounts that a staff marketer or a contract marketer needs to access.
Many people have multiple Gmail logins.
An example is someone who has a personal Gmail account and one or more business Gmail (G Suite) accounts.
In fact, independent contractors such as marketers can have many business Gmail accounts—one for each of their customers.
The good news is that an individual can login to Gmail as different users within the same browser.
When someone uses a free service such as Gmail, Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn, they are not a customer of the service provider.
For free services such as these, the customers of the service provider are the advertisers.
The product offered by the service provider to advertisers is a combination of the service itself and the users of the service. In other words, free users are a part of a product offering for advertisers.
Google has introduced native Gmail Offline for business (G Suite) and consumer users of Gmail.
This means that Gmail users can now read, reply to and compose emails while not connected to the internet. What’s more, no Chrome extension is needed.
It also means that people who current use a local email client in conjunction with G Suite, mainly for offline access, may find that the local client is no longer needed.
For anyone who is in sales and who uses either G Suite or Gmail, there’s a new sales productivity platform from Cirrus Insight that’s worth taking on a test drive.
Cirrus Insight’s flagship product was a Chrome extension for Gmail to Salesforce integration. Recently, the company expanded its offering to become a a broad and useful feature set for any user of Gmail or G Suite — regardless of whether they are using a specific CRM application.
Through a combination of internal inventions and acquisitions, Cirrus has assembled a “dream suite” of tools that most salespeople will appreciate.
Here is an overview of a few of the ways that salespeople can benefit from the Cirrus platform.

Gmail is the second most popular email client in the world after the iPhone email client. Gmail has over 1.5 billion users.
Some small businesses use the free version of Gmail for business communications. Other organizations make the move to G Suite, which includes Gmail for Business.
Both consumer Gmail and business Gmail users often have a need to create Gmail templates.
Fortunately, Google Labs has provided an easy (and free) way to create Gmail templates. This app is called Canned Responses. As its name implies, the intent of the app was for responding to inbound emails. However, the majority use case may well be for new outbound emails.
Access to Canned Responses is available to G Suite users by default, but user access can be disabled by a G Suite administrator in the admin console.
When a small business owner or manager decides to make the move from free consumer email addresses (e.g., firstname.lastname@example.org) to custom email addresses (e.g., email@example.com), there are a number of business email options.
As service providers, Google and Rackspace differ in many ways. However, they do overlap in a couple of areas.
There are two ways in which a G Suite user can have an unlimited number of inbound email addresses associated with their G Suite account. We’ll refer to these ways as “dimensions”, as they can be used in combination.
G Suite Email Aliases
The first dimension of unlimited email addresses are email aliases. Aliases are assigned to a user account by a G Suite admin. An admin can assign multiple values to what is technically called the Local-part of the email address, or the part before the @ sign.
In the following example, you will see that Lou’s default email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Lou must use this address to login to her email account.
In fact, over the last 30 days, 63% of the mobile & tablet visitors to this website, as reported by Google Analytics, are iPhone or iPad users.
For years, Google has offered iOS apps for Gmail, Calendar, Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides and more. However, until recently, the Gmail app had not been updated since December 4, 2012.

Your employees may even be using assorted Yahoo Mail and cable company email addresses for business purposes.
However, your business is growing and/or you want to start to use more professional looking email addresses such as:
Steven Aldrich of GoDaddy has stated that potential customers are far more likely to do business with a company that uses a business email address than those that don’t.
Through the use of simple-to-install browser apps and extensions, several vendors now offer Gmail users instant access to business productivity and sales enablement tools.
Users of business Gmail, part of Google Apps for Work, have several options for scheduling emails, tracking whether emails were opened and finding out whether links were within opened emails were clicked by recipients. And this is only a subset of the empowering functionality that’s available to Gmail users.
If you are thinking about moving from your current email provider to business Gmail for your organization, you’re probably wondering what would be involved with associating existing users’ email addresses, which are in a email@example.com type format, with a new G Suite account.
Also, what’s the best way to get your users’ often years worth of sent and received email into their Gmail accounts?
A move to business Gmail involves a number of technical tasks. However, this post is designed to provide a mainly non-technical overview of the tasks and options involved.

What many people don’t realize is that Gmail is also available to organizations.
Gmail is just one of the components of G Suite. Other components include Calendar, Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides and Sites.
An increasing number of our clients have been making the transition to Google Apps for Work for their email and other collaboration needs. After recently weighing the pros and cons of upgrading our current email server, we decided to make the move to Google Apps as well.
