Step 1: Verify your email address
By clicking on the “Verify your email” button, you’ll receive a verification email (in the inbox of the email you used to log in on lemwarm).
To verify your account email, simply click the link in your email. And voilà! You’re ready to start warming up your account.
Step 4: Start lemwarm
By clicking on “Start lemwarm”, you are allowing lemwarm to send custom emails on your behalf, and also to reply to them.
From now on, you can track your DNS check which will tell you if there’s something you should do to improve your setup:
Now, you’re ready to customize your settings even further to maximize the deliverability according to your domain age and email goals.
Customize your settings
Whether you have an old or brand new email address, these smart settings will help you keep your email warm for the long run:
What are these numbers?
1. Warm-up emails per day after ramp-up
This value is the limit of total lemwarm emails that can be sent per day. Once this limit is reached, the increment stops.
- If your email account is < 6 months old this maximum number should be 30.
- If your email account is > 6 months old this maximum number should be 40.
2.The ramp-up increment value per day
You want to gradually send warm-up emails. The number of lemwarm emails sent per day is increased by this number to progressively reach the maximum number you set.
- If your email account is < 6 months old this maximum number should be 1.
- If your email account is > 6 months old this maximum number should be 2.
For example, if your ramp-up increment value is 2, and warm-up emails per day after ramp-up is 40, here is what is going to happen:
DAY 1 : lemwarm will send 2 emails
DAY 2 : lemwarm will send 4 emails
DAY 3 : lemwarm will send 6 emails
... and so on, until you reach 40 emails per day.
On average the warm-up process takes one month.
During this initial warm-up phase, try not to send outreach campaigns. In case you need to, we strongly suggest keeping the volume of emails sent low:
- 25-50 emails a day during week 1
- 50-100 emails during week 2
…and increase gradually week after week.
After the initial warm-up phase, you can start sending campaigns.
Beware: if you want to hit 80% open rates and never go to spam, keep your lemwarm ON.
