Now you can use Gmail Delay Send to schedule when your emails will be sent! Wouldn’t it be great if your emails could be sent later in Gmail? What if you could schedule when your emails left Gmail? There are numerous studies regarding the best time to send email but the times will vary depending on what industry you’re in. I’ll bet you know when you’ve had the most luck getting your emails opened and replied to. What if you could send your emails at that specific time without needing to be sitting at your computer waiting to hit the send button? Well now you can with Gmail Delay Send.
Let’s say you’re working late one night on a big proposal. If you send the email late in the evening when it’s done your email will be buried the next morning when your client gets to work. What if you could complete the email the night before but then schedule the email to be sent at 8am early the next day so your email is at the top of the inbox when your client gets to their desk? Wouldn’t that be nice? Well now you can! Introducing Gmail Delay Send.
Why Gmail Delay Send?
- You can write your emails when you have time and then send them at a specific time later
- You can send your emails when you want them to be received
- You can manage timezone differences by having your emails received at the perfect time
- You can send your emails when they have the highest chance of being read
So how does Gmail Delay Send work? Great question! It’s ridiculously simple:
1. Start an email
When you’re writing a new email you will now see a Send Later button just to the right of the normal Send button like this:
2. Click Send Later
Once you click the Send Later button in Gmail you will be able to schedule the email to be sent at a specific time. Choose any 5 minute window, and then when you’re done, click the Schedule button. Voila! It’s scheduled and ready to be sent later in Gmail. See how easy it is to use Gmail Send Later to schedule your email here:
3. View or Edit your Scheduled Email
Now that your email is scheduled and ready to be sent, you can go ahead and view or edit your email. Simply click on your new ContactMonkey Outbox label on the left side of Gmail. There you will find all of your scheduled emails. Simply click on the email to open it up, make any changes you like then either click on Send Now to immediately send the email, or simply close the open window for it to be sent at the scheduled time.
Once the Gmail Delay Send has run successfully and sent your email it will appear in your normal Sent Mail label. Wasn’t that simple!
And of course this new feature works with ContactMonkey’s existing email tracking and Salesforce features. This means the emails you schedule with Gmail Delay Send will also be tracked and if you use Salesforce you can also add these emails to Salesforce. Hooray!
