Delivering Emails to Gmail Primary Tab

If you're using Gmail Tabs in your inbox, Email Marketing emails will typically arrive in the Promotions tab by default. The reason for this has to do with how Gmail segments emails sent via bulk senders, like GoDaddy. While there isn't anything we can do to change this, on our side, you can adjust your Gmail settings to deliver an email newsletter to the Primary tab in 2 easy steps.
