Get Into Your
I love answering questions! It is Just Ask Kim afterall! ;)
A question I received today asks:
“How do I send an email to one circle?”
This short answer is “You don’t, but you can, sort of!”
Let me explain…
Because Google+ users have not released their email address to you, emailing them does not work the way you might anticipate with the Gmail integration. The Gmail-Google+ integration is really only for inbound/reading/filtering.
However, there is STILL a way to get into the inbox of your circle members, using a tool built right into Google+.
One caveat, in an effort to control spamming, Google+ does not allow email notifications to be sent to any circle over 100 members.
1. Write the message you want to write as a G+ status.
2. Then rather than including the Public circle, include only the circle that you want to be talking too.
3. Once the circle is added to the message, putting your mouse over the circle’s name will give you a checkbox that says “Notify”
4. Post your message as usual
Your message will be delivered as an email notification to your recipients and they will be able to visit Google+ and read it there.
Its worth noting that everyone it was sent too will be able to see each other as recipients and that unless you disable comments/shares they will be able to engage with each other and share the post with their friends/fans.
This is a great way to quickly get an IMPORTANT piece of information into the email inbox of your intimate circles on Google+.
Have you used the notify option yet?
