We working hard to create our email newsletter to send to our loyal fans. But how do you know. Your sent email has been opened or not.
On Facebook, WhatsApp, when we send message then we immediately know that our seen message has been opened. But this is not in the case of email. After sending Email to our client through email, we have to wait until we get an reply message from that client.

So, There are some ways to track your sent email in Gmail ,
1. Using Outlook
2. Using Gmail chrome extension
1. Using Outlook : Outlook is one of the advance featured Email messaging application distributed by Microsoft. We can enjoy advanced Gmail function which we can’t enjoy on Gmail online server.
Outlook provides direct function to track Email where it has been opened or not by just a simple click on track option.

One of my other favorite chrome extension is ‘Bananatag extension‘. The precious feature is that you will get an account in Bananatag website where you can see all you traffic data in a well standard form or graph. But its not free. You can send only 5 email with tracking per day otherwise you have to go for a paid version plan which is amount to 5$ per month for their extra service.
