How do I set up follow-up emails?

Follow-ups to your initial message are a great way to ensure your prospects engage. Follow-ups will continue to be sent until that prospect becomes a lead. Learn more about configuring Lead Catcher. Unsubscribed and bounced prospects won't receive any follow-ups. 

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.

Note: If your campaign has already run, and you're adding a follow up at the end of your sequence, the delay will start from the date of the last send for the prospect. 

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.

FAQ

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?
The maximum duration between sends is 30 days. We've done this intentionally because the longer you wait before sending the next email, the more stale the email address becomes. 

Tip: Spacing follow-ups about 5 days a part is best practice to maintain deliverability and end up in the inbox.
