Warm Up Your Email - How does it work?
Warming up your email is a critical part of starting your cold email strategy. When you take the time to warm up your email, you're improving your deliverability so that you can avoid the spam folder. While there's a few other things to consider if you're starting cold email outreach, warm up is one of the first steps.
With Warmupyour.email (WUYE), we automate your warm-up process for you so you don't have to worry about manually sending emails to colleagues. We use your email address to send emails to email addresses that we own and our system automates the replies back from those real email addresses that we own.
If your emails go to Spam, Warm Up Your Email automatically marks those as Not Spam (or Not Junk, etc - depending on the mail provider's terminology). This will help get you out of spam over time.
If you are using a brand-new domain, we recommend waiting from 3 to 7 days after creating the domain to start the warm-up process. Then we recommend connecting one email at first, waiting a month, and then connecting the rest of the email addresses. This is to give some space before using the brand new domain so it looks more like human activity and natural, as it is not usual to start sending and receiving replies as soon as you create a domain and email.
What should I expect?
How long should I run Warm Up Your Email before sending?
We usually recommend running WUYE for at least seven days before starting to send emails for your outreach campaigns but we recommend keeping WUYE running in the background to help keep your send and receive ratio higher and help with your sender reputation.
Most customers will keep WUYE on always, but some customers will turn off WUYE for their email addresses after 30 to 60 days to free up space to warm up other email addresses.
I understand how this works but I don't want all of those replies crowding my inbox. Can you stop those?
Completely understand how those emails might "crowd up your inbox." We can't stop those replies since they're an important part of the warm up process. You'll also see emails in your sent folder that may not be familiar - these are emails sent from WUYE.
However, most mail providers offer the ability to filter messages based on set criteria. WUYE inserts the same final sentence into all messages indicating the email is sent from WUYE:
"Sent from Warmup Email Platform"
You can filter messages based on that content in the message body.
For reference, here's how to filter messages with most common mail providers:
