Creating sales email sequences

Creating sales email sequences

A great sales email sequence needs more work than writing a few pitches.

Your AEs and SDRs are a vital part of the content creation process and need to be fully committed to succeed long-term.

Build your content team

Assign one person to stay focused on writing and measuring the success of your content.

Your frontline reps should buy in to the new sales sequences. Ask what your SDRs hear from their prospects as they speak directly with customers.

Steps to ensure new content has buy-in and approval:

  • Frontline reps submit their ideas for new content.
  • The Sequence Specialist should ensure a use case and that the content doesn't already exist, then write the content.
  • The Content Review Crew helps finalise the sequence.

Capturing your reps hearts

Sales reps should feel part of the content creation process to increase their chances of using the sequences.

When you involve reps:

  • Use their time wisely. Once a month is enough to review content.
  • Review all content, and come prepared with adoption statistics.
  • Ensure quality by encouraging the reps to use the proper sequences.

Developing your sequence strategy

For larger companies, SDRs often use up to 100 sequences, while smaller companies can use 10 or 15 sales sequences.

Content supply chain steps:

  • Brainstorming new content ideas
  • Ensuring content ideas connect to actual use cases
  • Writing the content
  • Uploading and formatting the content
  • Measuring adoption
  • Measuring performance
  • Managing the technical operations

A simple sequence-structure should include three paragraphs:

  • Personalisation based on personas.
  • Value proposition. Connect the pains of each persona to how your product solves the problems.
  • Call to action, such as a demo or webinar.

Best practices for creating sales sequences

  • Keep it short. The whole email should fit on a phone screen without scrolling.
  • The email must be about your customer, not about the rep or company.
  • Talk about value propositions, not the features or benefits of your products.
  • Use simple language.
  • Avoid information overload. That is why we have sequences.
  • Each email should have a standalone value and is distinct from other messages in the sequence.
  • Include phone calls or LinkedIn messages for variety.
  • Send prospects things that drive value, such as an eBook or webinar invitation.

How to A/B test your sequences

Testing different versions of your email copy can help you sharpen your message. However, test one thing at a time and in an isolated way.

For example, test if adding a link to an email affects deliverability. Or how the length of a subject line performs.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
