How to Set up Email on an Android Device

Thankfully, being able to set up email on an Android device is simple.

Really simple.

The below instructions will show you, step-by-step, how to sync your accounts with your phone or tablet – on any version of Android. And the great thing about Android is you can have multiple email accounts on there!

1. First thing first, find your mail app in your menu (looks like an envelope) and click “add account”. You’ll then need to select your mail provider, this being Gmail, Hotmail, etc…

Set up email on an Android device – it’s easy!

If your email account is through another provider, you’ll need to hit Other (POP3/IMAP).

2. Next, you will be asked to enter your email address and password – make sure you type this in carefully – to avoid errors.

3. Enter a name for your account when prompted. This is particularly useful if you have multiple accounts set up on your device, and you want to differentiate them. It is also the name that will appear in your recipients inbox, when you send them a message (so, if it’s a work email account, keep it clean!)

 

4. It’s at this stage that, if you’ve selected the “Other (POP3/IMAP)” option, you’ll be asked to authenticate the server and security options for that account. Where possible, if it is a work email account, it might be that you’ll need to confirm these details with your IT department – some companies have strict firewall and security measures in place, which may prevent setup.

 

If you have the necessary information, you will need to select “POP3 account” and then “manual setup”. Then follow the below instructions:

Incoming Server Settings for to set up email on an Android device

Incoming Server settings:

  • Protocol: POP
  • Email Address: insert your email address here
  • Username: This is the username that was given to you when the account was created, usually the full email address
  • Password: The password for this account – make sure you enter it with care
  • POP server: Change this to read “mail.yourdomainname.com/co.uk
  • Security type: None
  • Port: 110
  • Then click “next”

The next page will take you to the settings for the Outgoing Server, again, follow the below instructions:

Outgoing Server Settings: 

  • Tick “login required”
  • Username: As above
  • Password: As above
  • SMTP server: Enter “mail.yourdomainname.com/co.uk
  • Security: None
  • Port: 587

 

5. Click “next/save”

6. After all of the above, you may then be asked if you would like to sync this account with your device contacts – this is optional, and may not be relevant if setting up your work email on your personal device.

7. Next, you can select the frequency that your device scans for new messages. Leaving a larger gap between scans will conserve your battery life. However, if you want your messages to come through as soon as they arrive, select  the “push” option.

8. Click “save” and you’re away. It’s as simple as that.

Promote Your Page on Facebook

Facebook offer a number of advertising solutions for promoting your page. 

Facebook Adverts

Promoting Your Page on Facebook

The 3 main types of Facebook advert are:

1. Marketplace Adverts. These are probably to most familiar of Facebook’s adverts, sitting in the right-hand column of your screen, to the side of your news feed. They are usually small thumbnail pictures, accompanied by a small amount of text.

2. Premium Adverts. Sometimes in the right-hand column, but more often they appear right in the middle of your news feed. They are usually much larger and can be made of either a picture or a video accompanied by text, or polls.

3. FBX (Facebook re-targeting). This is a new venture for Facebook’s advertising. It works in the same way as re-targeting works in other online ad campaigns, but, rather than just use the user’s browsing history, it also uses their movement on Facebook. I.e. people who’ve previously viewed your page, or others like it.

Premium adverts and FBX are purchased and arranged through a Facebook Account Manager, but Marketplace adverts can be paid for by card and can be set up instantly; it’s these we are going to focus on.

Using Marketplace Ads to Promote your Page

Marketplace adverts are simple, straightforward and can be tailored to specific audiences. This can be useful when trying to promote your page on Facebook and ensuring right people are clicking “Like”.

1. From your business’s Facebook page, click ‘Promote Page”

2. Select the country you would like to target.

3. Select up to 10 categories that your target audience may have expressed an interest in.

4. Set up your daily budget. Each click on your advert costs, on average, between 15 – 60 pence, depending upon how focused your search criteria are. As soon as your daily budget has been reached, your advert is removed until the following day.

5. Click ‘Promote Page’ and enter your payment information.

6. Click ‘Submit’ and your advert is up and ready.

That’s it!
