Here are a few more tips and tricks to get the most out of Lavender:

Rely on your Email Coach for suggestions

In this image of Lavender in Gmail, you can see that the Email Coach is pinned open and long sentences is highlighted under the “Needs Work” section. In the email body itself, any sentence that Lavender deems too lengthy is highlighted to make it easier to see.

Try clicking on each long sentence to see what Lavender suggests as an alternative.

Each item under “Needs Work” will either highlight a different section of the email or will provide a suggestion.

Use your Mobile Editor

Did you know that 81% of emails are read on mobile devices? (Yes, it’s true!) 🤯

Optimizing your email to be read on a mobile device increases your chances of the recipient replying.

You can use Lavender’s Mobile Editor to see what your email would look like when read on a Mobile Device. Selecting the “Show Formatting Issues” button at the bottom will highlight the part of the email that needs editing specific for mobile optimization.

💡 Tip: want to see what the email would look like on a mobile device using dark mode? Click the moon icon. How about if the email is read on a smart watch? Click the watch icon!

Finally - don't forget to have fun!
