Automatically Send a Follow Up Sales Email After No Response

Automatically Send a Follow Up Sales Email After No Response | Mixmax

How many emails do you send on a typical day?

If you’re like most busy sales reps, the number is probably in the hundreds. That’s a lot of time spent in your inbox each day!

Now, ask yourself this: What percent of your “email time” is spent following up with leads who just haven’t responded yet?

For the sake of discussion, let’s assume that a mere 5% of your workday is spent sending this type of message (I’m guessing it might be more, though.) In one week, that translates into two hours of your life that you can’t get back. Over the course of a year, you’ll invest 100+ hours on a boring, manual task that can (and should) be automated.

So, how can you automate your sales follow up process while ensuring the same personalized experience that customers appreciate?

  • 40% of salespeople give up after the first “no.”

Yep, you read that right.

Imagine what your team is missing out on by giving up after the first (or fourth) rejection.

Following up again (and again, and again, and again) is the name of the game when it comes to sales.

But there are ways of going about it that will increase your revenue team’s chances of engaging with prospects.

Getting your follow up email subject lines just right is one of them, especially since it’s what will encourage your recipients to either open or toss your email.
