Did you know with Gmail you can automate up to 70% of all your email tasks?
In this course I'll teach you the exact habits and workflows I've been using to reach inbox zero daily for 5 years in a row.
You will learn:
If you are like me checking your email is not only a daily chore, you could say it's even an addiction that consumes hundreds of valuable hours of our time every year.
The thing is as much as I hate email, dealing with it is a necessity in order to run my business. I used to struggle keeping up with it. My inbox was a mess with hundreds of emails that would go unread for weeks and sometime forever.
Eventually I had enough and decided to take control and find an effective way to manage my inbox. It took me a while to develop the right habits and figure things out but eventually I did and for the last 5 years I've been able to reach inbox zero every single day except for two trips (one to Machu Picchu and one to the Amazon jungle).
Is this course for you? If any of the following statements is true for you then the answer is yes.
- My inbox is a mess
- I have hundreds of unread emails

- I don't know how to use labels
- I am constantly checking my email
- I don't know how to stop getting tons of junk mail

Are you ready to finally take control over your inbox and show Gmail who is the boss?
It's time to Dominate Gmail!!!
Here is an overall look at the entire Gmail Domination blueprint for this course.
We talk about the right habits to be more productive with email and introduce the 10 step Gmail email processing workflow inspired in part by David Allen's GTD approach.
We take a look at the Gmail processing workflow again in diagram format step by step so you can see the logic behind it.
Enough theory. The best way to learn is to put things into practice. In this lecture you will see how I apply the Gmail processing workflow on my actual Gmail account!
Before you get all excited to learn all the tricks in this course we need to tune up your inbox so it runs like a lean mean email machine.
You cannot escape promotional mass emails but you can use an effective approach to get rid of them systematically.
All apps generate an insane amount of notifications and if you don't systematically turn them off you'll be drowned in a sea of useless email.
Learn how easy and powerful are Gmail smart filters and how can you use them to automate many of the boring and repetitive tasks of dealing with email.
If you find yourself writing the same email again and again you'll love how easy is to set up and create unlimited canned responses in Gmail.
Take canned responses to the next level and trigger them automatically based on the specific rules to set.
It takes two minutes and it will save you hundreds of hours of tedious copy and paste work.
We are not done with filters. The simplest way to delegate email is to forward it to a person that can deal with it.
It turns out that in Gmail you can also forward emails that meet whichever criteria you set automatically!
Before you hire a virtual assistant to help you with your inbox you need to document the exact procedures that she or he will need to follow. In this lecture I will teach you what are the main sections that you should include when documenting your inbox procedures.
Your assistant will be an extension of your brain but also of your brand and public image.
You must set clear rules as to the style and format of all outgoing communications.
There are many online platforms where you can hire virtual assistants to help you manage your email and perform all kinds of administrative tasks. Here is a list of five of those services.
Before you hire a virtual assistant is worth considering the pros and cons of going through an agency or hiring directly yourself.
The hiring process can be a bit overwhelming specially if you don't have a process to start with.
In this lecture I share the exact methodology I used to hire the best possible virtual assistant from more than 60 applicants.
You will learn the exact process I created to attract, filter and select the best possible Virtual Assistants.
Hint: It involves forms, spread sheets, challenges and a love for all things geeky :)
In this lecture I share with you the actual 1 hour task challenge I asked the top 10 applicants to perform.
Not all of them were able or willing to complete it but the results were well worth the effort!
There are literally thousands of add-ons for Gmail but here you have 6 that come highly recommended.

Welcome to the last lecture! We'll go over the main points covered in the course and to celebrate you made it all the way here I'll give you a little bonus present :)
