  • Word Count: Keep your email concise yet informative to spark interest and encourage action, with guidance on striking the right balance.

  • Personalization: Elevate your emails with personal touches that go beyond names, tailoring content to recipient interests and needs for higher engagement by using spintax and merge tags.

  • Spamminess: Dodge spam filters with smart phrasing and formatting, protecting your sender reputation and boosting email deliverability.

📧 Test Drive Your Email: No Risks, All Reward

Ever wished you could test an email before the big send-off? Now you can! Enter your test recipient's details, and hit send on a test email right from the Email Preview UI.

Select From Email from the drop-down menu from which you want to send an email. If you haven’t connected an email account yet, you need first to connect your email account to your sequence.

Select the Prospects from the To drop-down to whom you want to send a Test email. The test email will contain the details of the prospect you have selected.

You're all set to test out an email, but you haven't added any prospects to it yet. 🤔 No worries! Guess what? The system's got your back and adds a little touch of "John" as the first name and "Doe" as the last name by default. It's like a digital placeholder party! 🎉

You also have the flexibility to select the previous and next prospect. This helps you check how your email will look for all your added prospects. In addition, you have the flexibility to preview HTML Email Templates. By default, you can see the first 25 prospects in the dropdown and can search by name or email from all the prospects added to your sequence already.

Regarding the name change, your name is updated to "ABC" to Saleshandy, but if your name is "XYZ" in your email client, then you need to change it there. Whenever you send a test email, the first prospect of the sequence will be taken up. It won't add the first name of the email you add.
