06. I've sent 1 500+ outreach emails for less than 10 minutes: share my secret with you
In this post, I'm going to share my favourite app that saved me 10+ hours of work and the instruction on how to use it. Want to upgrade your outreach routine? Then continue reading!
Hey there, my dear readers!
This newsletter post is going to be an addition to my blogpost.
There, I shared my strategy on how I’ve managed to generate 1 500+ personalized emails with ChatGPT in 15 minutes.
If you haven’t checked it yet - you can do so right now:
I’d like to start this masterclass with a tiny present for you.
I appreciate you’re subscribed to my newsletter, so before sharing this template of the formula and table with other followers on LI, I want you to be the first who start using it.
You can get the template here.
Now, I want to share with you the instruction on how to send these 1 500+ outreach emails right from Google Spreadsheets.
The best thing about this method - it’s free of charge + saves you hours of work.
We are going to use Yet Another Mail Merge (YAMM) extension.
1. Install the YAMM.
Go to Google Spreadsheet with your emails.
Find Extensions there.
Click on Add-ons → Get Add-ons.
Type Yet Another Mail Merge there.
You’ll see an Additional setup there - you need to choose the column with email addresses (in my template, it’s Column C).
Don’t forget to write Sender Name and choose Email Template.
2. Prepare your mailing list in Google Sheets
Make sure you added email addresses and check if they’re correct.
I highly encourage you to quickly scan through all the outreach emails to ensure there are no brackets left like [Name], [Website], [Personalization].
Otherwise, there won’t be any chance to make edits at other stages of the process.
3. Send emails with YAMM
When you’re ready to send your emails - go to Extensions → find YAMM → Start Mail Merge.
Let’s first try to send Test Email - the app will mail to your address first.
If it was sent successfully, it’s high time to send the rest of the emails.
It takes up to 1 minute to send them all.
You can ensure letters are sent in your Sent folder.
You’re able to send 50 emails/per day for free in YAMM, but then you need to upgrade your plan. Check the pricing list here - the extension is quite affordable.
The application provides you with a tracking report, which, in my opinion, is a wonderful feature.
You can easily check how many emails were delivered, opened, clicked, responded, bounced and unsubscribed.
Overall, YAMM is worth your attention as it saves you 10+ hours of work and makes the outreach process 1000x easier!
