Emails Landing in Gmail Promotions Tab

Gmail has come up with a feature called inbox tabs where you can organize your emails to the relevant tabs. Due to this change in inbox, your email newsletters may land in promotions tab.

Why promotions tab

As you are sending a promotional or marketing based email campaign, it is obvious that the email will be landed in the promotional tab of your inbox.

Moreover, you are using an email-marketing channel such as Zoho Marketing Automation to send your email campaigns. So, it is natural that the email would land in the promotional tab.

  • Decrease in unsubscribes
