Sequence emailing in bulk still forces you into a queue...
Jul 29, 2019 9:14 AM
I already commented on a post on this topic but figured I would create my own as well in hopes it grabs attention...
I'm just trying the sales pro trial and was exstatic to finally hit that "enroll in sequence" button after selecting a list of 100 people only to find out they're forcing us again into a mundane queue.... I have to admit I am blown away this has not been resolved yet.
As a startup company I wear enough hats as it is and I was really hoping that sales pro would eliminate 2-3 hours or more/week of work for me in having enroll each lead into a sequence one by one. I am not interested in marketing emails - my focus is text-based sales so I know workflows won't help here.
When you create a sequence in the settings menu there is an option to make your emails "send at the best time that's proven to have best open rates." This would make sense if I can rely on it and apply it to a bulk list - if this is an option, then why bother forcing us to "customize" an experience with every contact?
Furthermore, the "lock" icon that appears over the "Enroll in Sequence" button is misleading for those without sales professional. It makes us think we can finally.... finally get away from that queue and just click a button and be done with it.
Hubspot, please offer a choice for people to bulk enroll contacts into sequences and not have to go through each contact at a time. Pllleeeeease.
Thank you! 🙂
