Automate Your Email Followups

And do it while personalizing them at scale

Use Any Email Provider

Every major mail server uses IMAP for receiving and SMTP for sending email. That's all Bluetick needs to support them because Bluetick acts as if it were a standard email client. To the mail server, it's no different than the mail clients you already have running on your phone, laptop or desktop.

There's no "Sent on behalf of" headings in your emails, nor is there an awkward looking "Reply-To" email address. That's because emails are sent and received directly from your mailbox.

Automatically Regulate Throughput

2017-06-29 - Sequence Buffer Timing

Personally emailing large lists of contacts is a challenge for several reasons.

  1. Sending hundreds or thousands of emails through your personal mail server is a huge mistake. You could inadvertently be launching a Denial of Service(DOS) attack against your mail server. It's also possible that your mail provider could block your account.
  2. You don't want to have to log into the app each day, select the contact and add them into an email sequence. This is a complete waste of your time.

The sequence buffer is where contacts wait before they're added to a sequence. You set the time of day, days per week and number of contacts per day to move into Step 1 of the sequence. This acts as a holding area and allows you to rate-limit the number of new contacts that will start a sequence each day.

If your response rates are high, you can dial it down or pause it. If the response rates are lower than you expect, crank it up. If your needs are immediate, you can skip the buffer entirely by adding contacts directly to Step 1 of your sequence.

Leverage Fine Grained Followup Schedules, Every Step of the Way

You have complete control over the amount of time Bluetick will wait before sending the next email in a sequence. You can wait a single day or weeks at a time. You can even set the time of day that emails will be sent.

Is your call to action offline? Do you want to simply interject yourself into the process to give a manual 'thumbs up' before sending? Wish you could modify individual emails being sent? No problem!

Any Step can be configured to create a task, allowing you to review each email before it's sent. This gives you the opportunity to preview the email, send yourself a copy to test what it will look like when it's received and if you like, make unique changes to just that email for just that contact without modifying the underlying email template.

Emails can even be sent as threaded replies which includes the contents of previous emails in the sequence.

Create Goal Oriented Email Sequences

2017-06-29 - Goal Triggered
2016-12-30 - Zapier Integration

Bluetick email sequences are almost always designed with a specific goal in mind. When the goal is reached, the sequence stops sending emails.

By default, the goal of each sequence is to get a reply to your email. However using our Zapier integration, you can trigger a goal based on any action taken from over 700 applications supported by Zapier.

You even have the option to ignore email replies and focus solely on these external factors to determine if Bluetick should send the next email in the sequence.
