Automating Lead Follow-Up

Inbound web leads can have a very limited window of opportunity for engagement. Some web leads go completely cold mere moments after submitting a form, which is why time is of the essence.

Seeking an accelerated approach to follow-up, Hiretual implemented Mixmax across three teams: sales, account executives, and SDRs. Soon after configuring their email templates and onboarding users, Hiretual began to experience measurable results.

"Our open rate for inbound leads is 70%, which is really high," said Edwin Lau, Revenue Operations Manager at Hiretual. "That 70% open rate translates into more meetings and pipeline."

Mixmax sequences play an important role in maintaining such high open rates. Sequences automate many of the manual aspects of lead management, such as remembering to follow up when no response is received. With Mixmax for Gmail, Hiretual is able to build high-impact drip sequences that engage leads at precisely the right moment while alleviating inbox overload for the revenue teams.

"Now we're able to engage leads almost immediately after they submit a form on our website," Lau said. "The automation allows responses to go out instantaneously, which keeps our reps focused on demos."

Automating Everything Else

Email isn't the only thing that can be automated with Mixmax. For example, Mixmax's integration with Salesforce CRM eliminates manual data entry by automatically synchronizing sent emails, replies, and other relevant data. "There's no other tool that has this level of integration with Salesforce," Lau said.

Building multi-step workflows is also possible, thanks to Mixmax rules. "As an admin, I really like the rules engine because I can automate almost anything," Lau said.

Enhancing Engagement

Mixmax provides a suite of outreach enhancements designed to make email less boring and more interactive. "The buttons, polls, and calendar functionality all help to drive engagement," Lau said.

With a single click, sales reps can browse dozens of enhancement options, such as:

  • Calendar invites
  • Surveys
  • Images
  • PDF slideshows
  • Social badges
  • Animated GIFs
  • Call-to-action buttons
  • Videos
  • ...and much more

Inserting Mixmax enhancements into the body of an email is also simple. Just point and click, and the enhancement magically appears without ever leaving Gmail.

Sure, most account executives can't tell at first glance whether a lead will be a good fit for their business (or even care about what they have to offer). But that doesn't mean you have to fumble around blindly, shooting emails at every poor prospect you come across.

In fact, there's a way to ensure you target the right people at the right time, every time. And we're going to show you how.
