How do I set up follow-up emails?
1. After writing your initial email, click the pink plus button then select " Follow-Up" from the options.
2. When you create a follow-up, you can decide how long to wait after the previous email before sending this one.
For example: Today you are editing a campaign. A prospect was sent the last follow-up message in the campaign's sequence 15 days ago.
- If you set the delay to 5 days, the email will go out to the prospect immediately since the time since the previous follow-up email is greater than the delay.
- If you set the delay to 20 days, the email will go out in 5 days from today since the previous follow-up email was sent 20 days ago.
Creating New Subject Lines for your Follow-ups
You can set additional follow-ups, like having another message go out 4 days later. You can either reply to one of the earlier messages or you can send a follow-up as a totally new email.
How is this different from a Drip message?
Drip messages are sent regardless of the actions your prospects take. Drips cannot be replies to earlier messages, they are always sent as a brand new email.
Can follow-ups be sent more than 30 days after the previous email?
Yes, you can delay follow-ups more than 30 days after the previous email. This can be very helpful for nurture campaigns.
That said, the longer you wait before sending the next email, the staler the email address becomes so we recommend keeping up to date with campaign activity like this.
