Introduction to lemwarm

Set up lemwarm and start seeing improvements in your deliverability score.

Hey there! 👋

This article is here to answer the most frequently asked questions our users have when they are starting with lemwarm.

How long should I keep it on?

We suggest always having lemwarm on to make sure that you have as less as possible things to worry about when it comes to deliverability.

The optimal time to warm up an email address is one month.

During the initial warm-up phase, try not to send outreach campaigns at all.

In case you want to send emails during the warm-up process, we strongly suggest you to keep your volumes lower (25-50 emails a day during week 1, 50-100 emails during week 2, etc.) and increase gradually week after week. Afterward, you can go all in.

Make sure to keep your lemwarm always active since if your leads from your campaigns mark your email as spam, or there is an issue with the deliverability, that will be also reflected on lemwarm's results and you will be able to make conclusions like should you change your content/subject line or decrease the amount of sent emails per day, or maybe change your list of leads. 🔥

1. Set up your lemwarm

Let me introduce you to your dashboard 👇

By following steps in the boxes area, you will be able to successfully setup your lemwarm.

First thing first, once you add billing and you choose your plan - where you can choose now between our two lemwarm plans:

Your next step would be to connect email provider - which means connect the email address that you want to warm up.

You can simply connect your email provider by adding your email address and password that you are using to log in to your email :

Once that's done, you can verify your email address and then you will be able to run lemwarm.

By clicking on “Start lemwarm”, you are allowing lemwarm to send amazing lemwarm emails on behalf of you, and also to reply to them.

Based on your deliverability score, system will automatically set up the  number of emails that you should send ( and how gradually you should increase per day), but if you want to set it by yourself, you can do that under “Team settings”

Here you can choose your own numbers:

What are actually those numbers?

➡️ The number of emails lemwarm will send per day after ramp-up: meaning the limit of total emails that can be reached per day with lemwarm. Once this limit is reached, the increment stops.

If your email account is less than 6 months this maximum number should be 30.

If your email account is more than 6 months this maximum number should be 40.

➡️ The ramp-up increment value per day. You want to gradually send warm-up emails over the days to progressively reach the maximum number you set.

If your email account is less than 6 months this value should be 1.

If your email account is more than 6 months this value should be 2.

As an example, if your ramp-up increment value is 2, 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.

That means, on average your email account should be warmed-up after 3 to 5 weeks.

Once it's all set, don't forget to click Start in the upper right corner and lemwarm will start running!

2. I'd like to hide the lemwarm emails from my inbox

As you'll be receiving lemwarm emails from other users, you don't want your lemwarm emails to mix up with the rest of your emails.

This is easy:

➡️ Go to your email account

➡️ Create a filter dedicated to emails with "lemwarmup" as a subject

➡️ And click the 3 boxes as below:

Here's a preview for Outlook accounts:

3. Analyze your reports

At any moment take a look at your deliverability score directly from your dashboard, along with some useful lemwarm tips:

You can also see a detailed report of the total lemwarm emails sent:

  • emails & replies sent to other lemlister
  • the total lemwarm email saved from spam 

Underneath, the first graph shows how many cold lemwarm emails were sent on specific days and the ratio between those who went directly into inbox (green) and those who went to spam (red) before we saved them out of there:

graph 1 : stats for cold emails

In the second graph, you will also be able to see where your lemwarm replies are landing the same way you can see the cold ones above.

graph 2 : stats for replies

Next to the cold email ( graph 1) we are also sending replies that are warm emails ( graph 2).

lemwarm will never sent more than what you have set up in your settings - as you'll be able to see in your graph 1 🙌
