Can I send a mass email without it appearing as a "marketing" update?

I'm trying to figure if there's a way to create a template (which I've done) and send to a static list (of members) in one click.

 

I know you can send a marketing email to a list that looks like an email (I've created and tested a template) but it comes up as an 'update' (ie. Marketing material) in Gmail when the template emails under 'contacts' goes into the direct inbox, which I want to keep. 

 

Been sending template to members individually and they appear fine but obviously it's very time consuming.

It isn't as simple as you may be hoping for.  There are a lot of things that go into Google deciding whether an email is an update vs. a promotion vs. a personal email.  Things like the IP address you are sending from (are you using a shared IP at Hubspot or dedicated)?  Also, what is the from address?  And, if users are getting your emails, are they moving your email to a more relevant folder (ie: out of the inbox and to updates)?  What this all means is that gmail is controlling this and it's not a setting or piece of code specifically that makes your email end up in one grouping vs. another.
