This is a cool app for Gmail users – called Boomerang. Check it out, it might help your productivity.
Basically, Boomerang for Gmail lets you take control of when you send and receive messages.
If you like to work late at night, you can use Boomerang to schedule emails to send in the morning. Data has shown that a well-timed email is 30% more likely to be read than a poorly-timed one. Most people check their email at the beginning of the workday, so the best time to schedule your messages is between 6-7am.
Many emails don’t require immediate action, even though they’re important. It takes mental energy to remember when you need to respond to each one. Boomerang allows you to snooze a message out of your inbox and have it come back to the top of your inbox at the specific time that you choose so that you can take action.
Boomerang can also automatically remind you when you need to follow up with someone. If a person hasn’t responded to your email after a certain amount of time, Boomerang can automatically bring that email back to the top of your inbox for you so that you can follow up on it.
Boomerang for Gmail enables you to send messages later, get email reminders, and snooze messages seamlessly inside of Gmail. Download Boomerang for Gmail and see for yourself why over 240,000 businesses and millions of people around the world use Boomerang to help them get and keep their inbox under control.

We all need more FREE disk space – especially up in the cloud. If you’re not using DropBox, click on one of the hyperlinks and you’ll instantly get 500 Mb of free space. Need more space? Invite more friends and you can get up to 16 GB of free space in the cloud.
Dropbox is ideal when you run a virtual company with freelancers and contractors working around the globe. It’s one of the many priceless web-based tools we teach our clients to use to leverage their time and resources – exponentially.
It’s also ideal for personal use to send video and other large files with one click of your mouse. Once your friend has downloaded the file, you can delete it and “re-use” the space for the next video. It sure beats dealing with USB flash drives…
Don’t take my word for it. Read the email correspondence below from Malcolm Whitfield in response to a Post Program Planning (automated) email we send to all our clients after-the-fact.
Hi Marc, (or whoever handles your mail),
Just thought I would reply to this.
I attended a half day Internet Business Blogging Workshop several years ago (2012).
I knew it was just a taster for further services, but I felt I got genuine value out of the few hours.
I implemented a couple of the ideas I got from the session, (there were more that I could have used, but I’m slack), plus what I have gleaned from the info on your website.
I got a feel for how the web thingy actually works. My tiny little website with its tiny little business pulls enough customers to outperform all my competition, including St. John’s, in my local area, and brings about as much work as I can handle by myself. (I’m 65 and not really wanting to hire staff and build a big business).
Your training session was tight and professional and jam-packed with real, usable tips and information. (I’m a trainer myself, and I’ve seen a lot of mediocre ones).
Don’t know how the people who do your mentoring programs (Platinum Program) and bootcamps go but if they get the same bang for the buck that I did, they should all be millionaires by now.
Just thought I’d let you know.
This email, unsolicited and received more than two years after-the-fact tells you a few things… Among them:
We know the adage about gift giving that it’s the thought that counts…
Once you’ve signed up – it’s FREE, you can get your own affiliate code and get rewarded for YOUR referrals to friends, family and colleagues. It’s the gift that keeps on giving.
This is exponential leverage at its very best, which is what makes the Internet the most powerful marketing tool ever created.
Learn to leverage the Internet to your advantage without needing to give anything away for FREE, but using other people’s FREE gifts to YOUR advantage with the Internet Sales Lead Generation Toolkit.

This infographic has a lot of useful lessons for anyone using broadcast email marketing on an on-going basis.
Internet technology is one of the biggest challenges small business owners face. Part of the reason is how quickly it changes but more importantly it’s because of the misinformation propaganda machine out there confusing things – ON PURPOSE.
Nowadays, the Internet is the undisputed go-to place for information. Even if you don’t engage in e-commerce, a company website is a must-have. This vital tool allows users to establish your authenticity, services, contact details and background, leading to potential business and referrals. Remember that the formatting of your website will also provide insight for visitors. Will you be seen as professional and cutting edge, or outdated and messy? There is a wide pool of resources available when it comes to website design, so surf the Internet and peruse the providers that are within your budget. Also be sure to choose a domain that is relevant to your business name and services or products.
We assist our clients to do this ON THEIR OWN without reliance on unscrupulous web designers whose business model is predicated on making money FROM you rather than FOR you. Contact us if you want to get online for FREE and never hire another IT geek to solve “technical problems”…
You may or may not have heard of this little thing called SEO. If you have, it was probably flung around in a conversation along with the words Google, ranking and page results. Broadly speaking, SEO involves a number of on-site and off-site strategies that are used to boost your ranking in Google’s search results. It focuses on improving the user experience through top-quality website structuring and content, as well as considerations for Google’s indexing system. As online shopping continues to take leaps and bounds and the world relies more and more on online searches, the difference between appearing on the first and fourth page of Google’s results can be immense.

When IT specialists refer to the cloud, they are really referring to data that is hosted on the Internet. Cloud computing signifies the use of a large number of super-powered computers and servers that can be accessed by users in any location with access to the Internet. The benefit of cloud computing systems is that programs or applications can all be run remotely, reducing installation costs and licensing fees of local or in-house servers.
For some professions, where confidential and highly-sensitive documents are commonly handled, the potential hazards of hacking and lost information tend to overshadow the benefits offered. In response to this dilemma, companies such as Your Digital File have used cutting edge technology to develop a cloud storage system with a level of security that surpasses what is available on the market, meaning that everyone can take advantage of the cloud.
Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn; the list goes on and on. While businesses cannot afford to ignore the power of social media, there are so many platforms that it can be difficult to keep abreast of all them. We advocate a totally different approach to online marketing. Have a look at the numerous posts in this blog to see how radically different our recommendations are.

Last week, I blogged twice about how small business owners are generating new leads for free.
The first blog post explained step-by-step how to leverage things you find online to create SEO optimised content. The second blog post demonstrated how, once you adopt an exponential mindset, you can get more new leads for free.
But here’s the thing about blogs, the Internet and free stuff – MOST people read it, get a quick boost of enthusiasm and then go right back to their old (bad) habits.
Not The Graffiti Eaters!
They understand the power of online marketing and organic traffic generation strategies.
The only real difference between people who are successful online and those who aren’t is that successful people do things that work – AND – do them systematically.
Everyone else just sits around “expecting something to happen” magically.
Can you see how easy it can be to join the thread of an idea and make your blog posts just a little more interesting?
It starts with a thought, followed by a tried and tested system…
But nothing happens unless you do something…
