Setting up a drip sequence of emails is super simple using Zapier and will save you a ton of time.  You can trigger them when something key happens in your business, such as winning a new client.  Having an automated drip of emails means that you’ll never worry about forgetting something and can be sure that your customers receive a standard welcome sequence with all the important information they need.

 

Our video shows how to use Zapier to set up a simple drip email sequence

Our new video shows just how easy it is to set up a simple email sequence using Zapier.  In our example, we connect Pipedrive and Gmail without using any code.  We also use some of Zapier’s pre-built integrations to format data and automatically delay certain steps.

The beauty of this zap is that you can trigger a series of emails in one place, using the delay functionality to spread them out over a few hours, days or even weeks.  You can design the email content and personalise it using data from the Pipedrive trigger.  The email can be plain text or HTML, and if you’re not confident writing HTML then we recommend using WordHTML as a super simple way of getting the code you need.

 

The Zapier steps to create a simple email sequence

Our video takes you through each step in the process of automating an email sequence.

The steps are:

  • Create a trigger event for when a deal is won in Pipedrive.
  • Split the person’s name into forename and surname using the Formatter By Zapier app.
  • Delay for 1 hour using the Delay By Zapier app.
  • Send a Gmail email.
  • Delay for 3 days using Delay By Zapier.
  • Send the second Gmail email.
  • Delay for 1 week Delay By Zapier.
  • Send the third Gmail email.

Other apps you can integrate to automatically send an email sequence

Although our example uses Pipedrive and Gmail you can use other CRMs and email platforms.

Salesforce is one example, and Hubspot is another, and both can be connected to over 2000 other apps using Zapier.  Other email platforms include Microsoft Outlook and Email by Zapier, Zapier’s inbuilt email application.

You are really only limited by your imagination as there are so many options for adding more steps to this zap, to extend it further.  One of our previous video tutorials demonstrates a seven-day sales cadence using Zapier.
