We spend hours on end in our inboxes. But what apps – if any at all – do you use to boost your email productivity?

This week, we’re back to present to you six brilliant apps that’ll save you time and effort in the inbox.

While we all had a bit of fun with Outlook back in the day, it’s definitely time to put it to rest. It’s 2017 now, and Gmail is where it’s at.

Downloading the Gmail web and mobile app will ensure you stay on top of your email and * ahem * bring you into the 21st century.

How do you know if your email strategy is working for you? Better yet, how do you wriggle your way out of the junk mail and in front of actual eyeballs?

Hubspot goes a step further than CRM by showing you user-specific behaviour. You’ll have access to information on how many times people clicked your email, where they opened it and how many devices they used so you can follow up with them in real time.

Ever wanted to find out more about your prospects or contacts without the effort of stalking their social profiles?

With Rapportive, you can get LinkedIn profile summaries right inside your Gmail. This simple chrome plugin shows you everything you need to know about your contacts right inside your inbox, combining what you know and what the web knows about them.

Do you ever find yourself peppering emails with phrases like “Sorry” or “I thought I’d just” or “I think maybe”? You probably don’t realise, but these tiny additions to your vocabulary are totally undermining your authority.

The Just Not Sorry plugin will point out all the times you unwittingly talk yourself down, so you can straighten your shoulders and keep on being the boss you are.
