How to Warm Up an Email for Cold Outreach in 2022?

Promoting a new product or new offering through cold emails is the most important strategy for reaching out to the target audience. But do you know 14.5 billion emails are marked as spam every single day? Advertising-related spam is predominant in 35% of all spam globally. The problem is the new email accounts aren’t warming up.

With the Google spam update at the beginning of 2019, it’s becoming harder to reach the inbox as the majority of the emails are marked as spam. To avoid that before you start a serious cold email outreach, it is essential to warm up your new email account precisely. It is vital for salespeople to ensure they stay out of the spam folder for their cold outreach campaigns.

“Properly warming up your email account is a key step to avoid landing your emails in a spam folder,” says Umesh Joshi, founder of blogger outreach agency TrafficKite.

This makes your email account seem as legitimate as a human before you utilize your automated email tool. In this article, you will know how to make Google think you’re a real person through email warm-up or IP warming.

What is email warmup?

The email warmup is a way you establish a reputation for a new email account and increase the email sending limit. The warmup process includes sending emails from a new email account, starting with a smaller number, and gradually increasing the number of emails each day.

When a user creates a new email account, the email service provider gives daily sending limits. However, a fresh account can’t use entirely. 

For example, Google provides 2000 emails/day for a G Suite account. But from day one, you can’t send it all; you get a smaller limit. To use it to its full potential, you have to build a good reputation, which can be done by email warm-up.

Ideally, it takes 8–12 weeks to accomplish maximum email deliverability. Depending on email volume and engagement in the warmup process, the email gets ready faster. The email warmup may take longer than anticipated if the recipient’s engagement level is too low.

Why is Email Warm up Important?

Email warmup is a process required to build a reputation and has a higher delivery rate. It is essential when you are planning a large volume cold email campaign with a new account to make sure emails land in inboxes.

In a cold email campaign, the first thing you need is to reach the recipient’s inbox. Once you are there, having a good engagement will build a more significant relationship. If the email is very well warmed before sending cold emails, it will avoid the spam filter, deliver in the inbox, and have a higher open rate.

So without any further ado, let’s dive deep and find out how to warm up an email account before sending cold emails that make your email account more efficient, increase your sender reputation and improve your email deliverability.

Email Warm Up

How does it work?

When you connect your email account with GrowMeOrganic, we send emails to other GrowMeOrganic users’ emails using your account with unique content.

Once it’s active each hour, we will send emails from your senders to the community and our pool of senders. They will reply to your emails, and we will automatically move your emails that go in SPAM to INBOX to increase your reputation.

The biggest advantage of these conversations is that you’ll be joining a mailbox network that consists of 20K+ people from many countries. GrowMeOrganic doesn’t allow fake email addresses to participate in this pool as they ruin our email domains.

Our Recommendation:

  1. Number of warm-ups and emails to send per day: 45
  2. Daily email limit to increase:  2
  3. For a bigger sales team, it is recommended to warm up all their email addresses at the same time.

How long does it take to Warm Up your Email?

The average time is one month when your email will be adequately warmed up and ready to send. 

Always keep lower sending volumes if you want to send emails during the warmup process. Increase gradually and keep GrowMeOrganic warmup active, so you’re sure your email address stays warm.

In case you want to send emails during the warmup process, we strongly suggest keeping lower sending volumes. Here’s what we mean:

  • 25–50 emails a day during week 1
  • 50–100 emails a day during week 2, etc.
