Hi there!๐Ÿ‘‹

It's a bad idea to send many emails ๐Ÿ“ง at one go. In fact, it's a guaranteed way to ruin your domain reputation and send the emails in Spam.

But don't worry, with SalesBlink you can add random delays โŒ›between emails & spread the emails being sent to specific sending hours & days in your cold email sequences.

๐Ÿ”ด Note: Random Delays & Sending Hours are set while scheduling Sequences.

Let's get some basic terms out of the way first,

Random Delays

You can pick a range, say 2-min to 7-min & the emails would be scheduled & sent at a random time between this duration.

The first email ๐Ÿ“งmight get sent in 3 minutes, second email after 6 minutes of that, third after 2 mins and so on, it's completely random.

This ensures that your email & domain are not being tagged as spammers ๐Ÿ’€, by simulating human behavior or randomness.

Sending Hours

You don't want to send emails 11pm on a Saturday night to a lead, & we have you covered. You can set Sending hours & days and all your emails ๐Ÿ“ง will be scheduled & sent within the chosen timings. โŒ›

Now that we've got the basic definitions in place, let's configure these for your email ๐Ÿ“งsender.

While Scheduling a Sequence ๐ŸŒŸ

As soon as you click "Save & Schedule"

You will see the option to select a time & timezone for the sequence to start along with options to set Random Delays & Sending Hours.

Set the preferred random delays & sending hours โŒ› or keep the default, accordingly your emails will be scheduled.

& it's done!

Hope you found this help doc useful! ๐Ÿ˜€
