Google imposes a maximum sending limit on emails of 500/day for regular @gmail users and 2,000 emails per day for Google apps users (this includes businesses and edu). In addition, there is a limit of 99 emails that can be sent in single mailing, which means if you try and send an email to 150 recipients using the To, CC or BCC fields your account will be flagged and you will not be able to send new messages (you can still access your account and receive incoming email).
Google Hangouts is not only a good solution for delivering product trainings with customers but it’s a great way to engage business prospects and move them closer to becoming a customer.

*In a decent sized city you’ll typically get 200 or so responses.

In case you haven’t noticed yet, Flashissue has officially launched its Gmail Template Gallery.
This new update comes with themed templates and a bunch of new features. You can preview templates, move columns, change links, insert texts and images, and save your own template design. These new features will help you get even more creative with your email designs.
Using the Flashissue clipper you can create an email newsletter right inside Gmail in world record time – Bookmark a few web articles, add some words and you’re done.
The full version of Flashissue is great for creating mailing lists from your Google Contacts; designing great looking emails and then being able to track them. That’s the products’ bread and butter. But what you may not know is that there’s a buried feature in Flashissue that will save you a ton of time and make you look great to your clients or audience.
We’re testing a new feature that allows you to share one of your email’s as a template with the rest of your team.
The feature is not totally baked – it’s fully functional but not very polished. We want to get it in your hands for some feedback, so let us know what you think.
How it works
The feature lets you share an email you have created in your Flashissue account with others in your team so they can use it as a template of their own. Once shared, they are free to edit the email as their own – it will leave the original email in your account unchanged.
Try the example from the video (click the link): http://app.flashissue.com/newsletters/company-template-2/share
Note: this is NOT a feature that lets you “collaborate” on an email with others.; it allows you to share an email as a copy with others.
Step #1: View Email
Go to your Reports tab and hover your mouse over an email you would like to share with your team. Click the “View Email” button and you will be taken to the web view of the email.
Step #2: Create link
Now the email has opened in your browser create the link to share with your team.
Add the following text – /share – to the end of the page URL so that:
As you may know, it is not possible to embed video in an email using YouTube or any other type of video file like .mp4 or .avi.
If you want to embed a video in an email, the nearest you can get is to embed a static image of the video in your email that clicks over to a web page displaying the full video.

One of the biggest creators of “blogging inertia” is the fear of not knowing what to write about. It’s a frequently discussed topic at Flashissue. Even when you’re equipped with a string of highly targeted keywords, finding a way to translate this into a blog post is hard for many companies (trust me i get it).
