Enable mass enrollment in sequences

It would be useful to be able to enroll several contacts at once into a sequence in Hubspot Sales. For example I may want to enroll everyone at company x with 50 employees. Currently I'd have to go through the enrollment process 50 times.

Hi folks -- Scott from the product team here. 

 
We have an early version of a new "quick-send" feature as part of sequences, which will minimize your time spent doing sales outreach while giving you personalization and recommendation tips to boost response rates.
 
If you're interested in getting early access, please fill out this form. We'll be slowly granting access as we work out the kinks and implement feedback.

Hello all,

 

I am reaching out on behalf of the HubSpot Product team to inform you that this idea: Enable mass enrollment in sequences is Not Currently Planned. 


This is because the ability to enroll mass lists of contacts already exists as part of HubSpot's Marketing Hub. The HubSpot Sales Hub & CRM Free features are designed specifically for one-to-one email communications between sales teams and their leads/customers. The HubSpot Marketing Email tool allows businesses to mass enroll subscribed contacts into email campaigns. Email Marketing is currently part of the Basic, Pro and Enterprise packages but stay tuned here for updates r.e. Marketing Free and Starter. 

Our Product Manager @sjudson has announced a new Sequences feature that is In Beta which enables users to select a group of contacts, and quickly personalize and send sequences to those contacts individually. Quick sending is a playlist or task-queue like sending experience for sequences paired closely with email recommendations.  Here is a peek at how it works:

If you have any questions, feedback or would like to find out more about this feature and how to drive value from your sales emails please reach out to Scott directly by commenting on this idea: Quick sending in sequences

Hey @Tayloroster this is not a feature the HubSpot Sales product team will be moving forward with at this time. This is because this feature already exists as part of HubSpot's Marketing Hub. The HubSpot Sales & CRM features are designed specifically for one-to-one email communications between sales teams and their leads/customers. The HubSpot Marketing Email tool allows businesses to mass enroll subscribed contacts into email campaigns.

Would love the ability to bulk send Sequences. Similar tools are available through Outreach.io, GrowBots, etc. and my Sales team is clamoring to switch from HubSpot  Sales Pro to a tool that better fits their need for bulk sending. Help!

Is there a way to mass enroll multiple contacts into a single sequence as opposed to enrolling each contact individually? My job is a numbers game so I don't need to customize each e-mail. I just need to click them in and be done with it.

 

If this feature isn't available can you please roll it into your development plan? Enrolling individually is quite time consuming and I'm tempted to look for services that can do that.

Hello @jasonk

 

There is not a way to mass enroll contacts into a sequence. This is because a sequence is supposed to be used for a 1:1 type conversation with your contacts. 

 

There is a current idea on our ideas.hubspot.com forum speaking to this idea and I have included it here. If you are looking to have more than one person in a sequence on the HubSpot marketing side of the product we have a feature called Workflows that allows you to set actions like 'send an email' and then enroll contacts based on certain criteria.  

 

If you wish to learn more about HubSpot Workflows you can find out more here. In addition, if you are looking to have Sales Reps use this platform I have included a ver helpful blog post regarding 'Sales Reps guide to Workflows'

 

All the best,

Being able to send an email template to a list of contacts is a really key selling tool and something I think should be included to sales pro users. Not being able to group message people on your contacts list is a real dissapointment giving the monthly subscription cost.

I am looking fo the same thing. How do I send bulk prospecting email/ sequence?

you can't unless you purchase the marketing package- salespro users are unaqble to send group emails you can only email one contact at a time. Very frustrating isn't it.

I find this also an issue, not being able to enrol bulk of contacts into the sequence.

 

Any suggestions???

Isn't that a basic of prospecting? Yes, it is frustrating.

I was told if you like the idea and want to see it implemented you can click on the thumbs up next to my post and they will review it and consider adding it as a function if enough people show interest.

Fingers crossed as it's a key element that's missing in my opinion.
