In this help article, you will learn how to:
- Adjust your advanced settings
- Create reusable email templates
- Update your campaign after it has been launched
- Manage your unsubscriptions
There are 3 sections in the Campaigns Settings: Sending window, Google accounts and Unsubscribe sentence.
The sending window is the window of time when emails in your campaigns can be sent. You can select on which days the emails will be sent, at what time, and what the delay between each message sent will be.
We recommend selecting at least two or more days to ensure that all your emails are sent in a timely manner.
The delay between emails can be between 30 and 600 seconds (10 minutes).
If the emails of your campaign can't all be sent on the same day, they will be sent on the next scheduled timeframe.
Set the Gmail/Google Workspace account used to send the emails. Users on a paid plan can connect up to 5 accounts (contact us if you want to increase this limit).
Each user, whether on a free or paid plan, is limited to 1 Gmail connection only; other connections need to be Google Workpace accounts, formerly known as G Suite.
For each Google account, click on the "Edit" link next to it to further customize it.
Each email can have its own daily sending limit, which must be between 1 and 400 emails. If you have aliases set up on your Google account, you can select one of your aliases to send the emails from. Finally, you can edit the sender name which will be visible in the from field of your send emails.
The Hunter Campaigns can only be connected to Google accounts. However, if you have a professional email address set up with a different provider, it can be possible to set up an alias on a Google account which links to your other provider via SMTP. Google has written a help article that explains how aliases can be set up here.
Please note that when sending campaigns with an alias, the replies and bounces might not be detected in Hunter as Hunter only has access to the Google account.
Here, you can edit the unsubscribe sentence at the bottom of the email:
Create and manage email templates
In the Templates section you can create new templates to use for your campaigns and edit or delete existing ones.
To find inspiration, click on "Browse templates" next to the "+ New template" button, and look at our templates catalogue to directly save the ones you are interested in to your account:
All your templates will be available to copy directly in the content of a campaign when you create it:
Update active Campaigns
Once a campaign is active, it's possible to add new recipients to it. This allows you to send the same message to new leads without creating a duplicated campaign.
You can also add recipients directly from a list of lists. Select the lead(s) you want to add, and from the Action menu, click on Add to a campaign.
As soon as a new lead or an email is added to an active campaign, a new recipient will be automatically added to the campaign and an email created and sent according to your sending schedule.
Each campaign can have up to 2000 recipients.
All the leads that have unsubscribed from an email campaign will be directly added to the Unsubscription list. All bounced emails are automatically added to the unsubscription list, too. This means that these email addresses cannot be contacted again, even if you add them to a campaign by mistake.
It is possible to manually add new emails to unsubscribe:
You can also download the unsubscribed emails in a CSV file.
