What is a Follow-up Plan?

 

A Follow-up Plan is a sequence of reminders and automatic emails that help you keep in touch with your contacts. Once you set up a Follow-up Plan, you will receive dashboard reminders to stay in touch. If you set up automated emails, these will go out with no required action on your part.

Create a Follow-up Plan

 

Create a Follow-up Plan to include your own email and call scripts. Before you start, make sure you’ve loaded any scripts you’d like to use into the Script Library. Learn how to add your own email scripts.

 

To create your own Follow-up Plan:

  1. Click on Manage > Follow-up Plan Library.
  2. Click +Add Follow-up Plan on the top right.
  3. Fill out the required fields:
  • Name
  • Description
  • Status
  1. Determine the touchpoint sequence. Select the method of contact (phone, email, or automated email), timing (days after), and the script you’d like to use. Do this for each touchpoint.
  2. Click Save.

 

What is an Auto-assigned Follow-up Plan?

 

Auto-assigned Follow-up Plans save you time by automatically assigning each of your contacts to a Follow-up Plan based on their contact status. For example, if you want all your New contacts to receive the New Contact Follow-up Plan, you can use auto-assignment.
