Send with Autopilot
How to maximize your deliverability thanks to Mailmeteor's Autopilot
Autopilot offers advanced options to maximize your campaign's deliverability, including throttling, selective sending, and daily email caps.
Mailmeteor Autopilot interface in the Dashboard
This feature is especially helpful for power users, such as growth marketers or sales reps, looking for a solution to increase their open and click-through rates.
The Autopilot interface lets you define:
- On which days of the week you want to send emails (e.g. Monday to Friday)
- On which hours of the day your emails should be sent (e.g. 9 AM to 5 PM)
- How many emails you can send per day (e.g. 300 emails/day)
- The interval of time between each email (e.g. Send one email every 60 seconds)
- When to start sending the emails (e.g. Right now)
You can customize each setting to achieve your email marketing goals. With optimal settings, your messages will have a better chance of reaching your recipients' inboxes.
When you change a setting, Mailmeteor gives you an estimate of how long it will take to send all your emails (e.g. "about 2 days" in the screenshot above).
From the Mailmeteor Dashboard, you can quickly define Autopilot settings at campaign creation. Here's how to do it:
2. Create a new campaign.
3. Click Autopilot.
Autopilot is a powerful tool. But it comes with a couple of limitations:
- The maximum delay to send your emails is 120 days.
- You can only add up to 10,000 contacts in your Autopilot campaign.
Whenever you send an email campaign with Mailmeteor, there are several factors to consider to make sure that your emails will be well-delivered to the inbox of your recipients.
Some of these factors are in the hands of Mailmeteor, some are in your hands, and some are in the hands of the email service providers (ESPs), such as Gmail, Yahoo, or Outlook.
Autopilot gives you more control over your deliverability rate. By defining exactly when and how your emails should be sent, you can 10x your email deliverability.
Having a "normal sending activity" improves the deliverability of your campaign.
