Save Time By Using Gmail Templates
If you use templates for quick starts on documents, reports, or spreadsheets, then you know their value as time savers.
In Gmail, you can create your own templates to save time on those emails you send often.

Maybe you regularly send an update to your supervisor, request an update from your team, or let a client know you've received their feedback. Rather than recreating the same message again and again, you can create and reuse a template.

Why Email Security Matters
Despite the increasing popularity of instant messaging, video calls and other collaboration tools, email remains a core business tool for modern organizations.
The number of emails exchanged globally per day is expected to exceed 376.4 billion by 2025. Due to its high importance in today's business landscape, emails have become the weapon of choice for cybercriminals to launch sophisticated attacks.

Emails are the entry point for several types of cybercrime including phishing, ransomware, malware and business email compromise (BEC). More than 90% of all dangerous ransomware and malware enter an organization via email. According to Verizon's 2021 Data Breach Investigations Report, 36% of data breaches involved phishing.

Marketing Unleashed: Personalisation Is About Driving Change Not Birthday Greetings
The misperception of what personalisation is still exists for many marketeers
Personalisation isn't simply sending an email to an individual, saying: 'Hi Tim, we know it's your birthday next week. Here's a 10% discount on our product as a gift.' That is a seriously outdated execution of personalisation - something we might describe as Personalisation 1.0. This approach represents a poor use of customer data. It isn't subtle. It is overly simplistic and doesn't show any understanding of buyer journey.

Forrester's Q1 2022 Sales Operations Pulse Survey Results
The average computer monitor, with 1080p resolution, has a grand total of 2,073,600 pixels. Sure, you can still see the image if you're missing a few thousand pixels, but the clarity isn't as sharp. Each pixel matters.
Similarly, each data point matters in order to give you the complete picture of a market or a trend. Seeking to give our seatholders clarity, we recently completed Forrester's Q1 2022 Sales Operations Activity Survey. Pulse surveys such as this one are used to measure feedback in a more informal way and with more frequency, providing a 'snapshot in time' for a particular topic.
