When we were getting about sending our own cold email campaigns, the first thing we did was setting up a new mailbox for each of our sales persons. Those new email accounts have been created on a separate domain and dedicated exclusively to outbound email campaigns. Why did we do that? And how can you do that quickly and conveniently for your own outreach?
We talk a lot about cold emails, but not so much about follow-ups. We carefully craft our opening message, but we don’t seem to spend the same amount of time writing the follow-ups.
Meanwhile, experience shows that majority of prospects reply to the second or the third message from the sequence, and not directly to the first one. So we should focus on the follow-ups at least as much as we focus on the opening email. Here’s 5 crucial rules to keep in mind when it comes to effective email follow-up.

It’s a process of constant improvement. And during the process, you constantly look for guidance, inspiration, and advice based on experience. Below, I’m sharing with you my list of 8 cold emailing resources including books, ebooks, and blogs that are helping me in my learning process.
