Promotions tab:

Back in 2013, Gmail introduced the Promotions tab with the aim to help users filter out the content but still, many audiences regularly check their promotions tab. To make it visually appealing, Gmail initiated annotations with visual imagery to help brands stand out! Making each product within their reach and every click to directly the product, users can get a wholesome experience with a positive review. It’s a win-win for both your audience and your brand.
