How to send personalized cold emails with Woodpecker and Lyne.ai

What you’ll learn

 

Sending cold email is still the number one way of generating new business, even as we’re entering 2022. However, it’s undeniable that things have changed over the last few years. 

 

While before you could load up a few hundred emails that started with {{first_name}} tags and you’d land a few solid leads, these days that won’t cut it anymore.

 

Personalization is the name of the game now, and in this guide I’ll show you exactly how to win that game.

 

By linking together Woodpecker and Lyne.ai you’ll be able to send hyper-personalized cold emails on autopilot. I’m not talking about personalized images or generic or shallow personalization — I’m talking about sending emails like this one, at scale:

If that sounds like something you’d like to be able to do for yourself or for your clients then keep reading. I’ll show you how to:

 

  • Personalize icebreakers at scale based on podcast appearances, webinar appearances, Substack newsletters, blogs, company case studies, and much, much more
  • How to set that up in Woodpecker
  • How to automate the entire workflow and save hundreds of man hours per month (yours truly managed 20 clients for his cold email agency, alone, using this exact method)

 

Why you need it

 

If you’re reading this, chances are you already have the answer to that question. Generic cold emails no longer work, but personalization takes time and isn’t scalable.

 

You’ll either find yourself spending hours inside Google Sheets & LinkedIn, trying to come up with icebreakers or one-liners. Or, you’ll end up hiring VAs or SDRs who need training, supervision, and well..a paycheck. Not ideal.

 

Lyne.ai was built for that exact reason: helping people like yourself to achieve superhuman productivity.

 

We don’t believe that sales deals should be closed by robots, only humans can and should do that. However, that first touch is something that can be done far more efficiently and that’s where we + Woodpecker come in.

 

Let’s get started: generating cold email icebreakers with AI

 

Lyne.ai uses artificial intelligence to analyze your prospects, find anything there is to find on them online, and write (several) icebreaker(s) or intros for them which you can use as {{mergetags}} in your cold outreach.

 

We’re able to find Substack newsletters, podcast appearances, webinars these people hosted, case studies they posted, blog posts they’re featured in, and much more.

 

While all we need is a LinkedIn profile or a professional email address, the more data you provide us with, the better.

 

You can then set your preferences in Lyne on which sources to use for your personalized cold email intros, and in which order.

 

Lyne.ai Advanced Settings

 

Pro tip #1: toggle the “subject lines” button — we’ll create matching subject lines for your intro. If for example the intro talks about a case study, the subject line will be “your xxx case study” or “x% increase for client xx”.

 

If for example blog posts are most important to you, you can set those at the top of your list, followed by your second most important source.

 

Think of it as telling your SDR “if they have a blog, use that. But if there’s nothing there, go and have a look at their LinkedIn profile”.

 

Only thing is, Lyne writes about 900x faster than your average SDR. Processing a file with 1000 prospects will take around 1 hour. Just think of how many cold email campaigns you can feed this way..

 

Once ready, your results will be available for download or sync in your dashboard. Download the CSV to give the results a quick skim or touch up, to then sync them with Woodpecker.

 

Or, use our built-in Woodpecker integration to automatically sync your results with any account or campaign you have linked in your dashboard.

Pro tip #2: you can manage unlimited clients and campaigns from your Lyne dashboard

 

Preparing your Woodpecker account

 

Before you’re able to use your new AI-generated cold email intros, you’ll need to know how to use custom variables in Woodpecker.

 

For example, for our intros we use the variable {{lyne}}, while for the matching subject lines we generate we use the {{subject_lyne}} variable.

 

 

Pro tip #3: read the official Woodpecker help article here: https://docs.woodpecker.co/en/articles/5258902-how-to-use-our-custom-fields-snippets

 

After uploading your Lyne.ai CSV for the first time, you should map all Lyne-generated data as “Other” to be able to use them as variables.

 

 

Once you’ve created your list, go to your email template and click on the dropdown menu to select a new variable (you should now see the name of your CSV’s columns).

 

 

That’s it — you’re now able to use the “personalized snippets” Lyne created in your Woodpecker campaigns.

 

The results: your automated AI-lead generation bot

 

Feeling like Elon Musk yet? You’ve just built your very own AI-powered sales rep – you’re one step closer to building your own rocket I suppose.

 

Now all you’ll have to do is regularly add prospects to Lyne, then sync those with your Woodpecker account. Each of your prospects will receive a hyper-personalized cold email that looks as if you’ve spent hours researching them online.

 

Most of our users say they’ll never go back to sending normal emails again, simply because the results are too good. From 200% increases in open rates, to 3-4x higher reply rates, to downscaling human operations from 50+ people to just 8 – Lyne.ai users are making more money with the help of AI.

What you’ll learn

 

Sending cold email is as yet the main method of creating new business, even as we’re entering 2022. Nonetheless, it’s evident that things have changed in the course of the most recent couple of years.

 

While before you could stack up a couple hundred messages that began with generic {{mergetags}} and you’d land a couple of strong leads, nowadays that will not cut it any longer. Personalization is king, and today I’ll show you exactly how to become cold email royalty.

 

By connecting together Mailshake and Lyne.ai you’ll have the option to send hyper-customized cold messages on autopilot. I’m not discussing customized pictures or conventional or shallow personalization – I’m looking at sending messages like this one, at scale:

If that sounds like something you’d like to have at your disposal, either for yourself or your clients, then keep reading. I’ll tell you the best way to:

 

  • Personalize icebreakers at scale based on podcast appearances, webinar appearances, Substack newsletters, blogs, company case studies, and much, much more

Why you need it

 

If you’re reading this, chances are you already have the answer to that question. Generic cold emails no longer work, but personalization takes time and isn’t scalable.

 

You’ll either wind up going through hours inside Google Sheets and LinkedIn, attempting to put together icebreakers or good sounding intros. Or then again, you’ll wind up employing VAs or SDRs who need training, oversight, and well..a check. Not great.

 

Lyne.ai was created for that precise purpose: assisting individuals to accomplish superhuman efficiency.

 

We don’t believe that sales deals should be closed by robots, only humans can and should do that. However, that first touch is something that can be done far more efficiently and that’s where we + Mailshake come in.

The Easiest Way to Manage Multiple Inboxes on One Domain

The Easiest Way to Manage Multiple Inboxes on One Domain

When you’re looking to scale your cold email campaigns, you’ll often find yourself adding multiple variations of the same person in your GSuite admin.

 

Managing multiple inboxes of the same person on the same domain can be a frustrating experience however. Having to login to several different Gmail inboxes, switching between tabs, and managing templates, replies, and leads across multiple accounts is just plain annoying.

 

It is however a reality plenty of sales reps & agency owners are facing daily (as were we until not too long ago..). Luckily for both of us, there’s a pretty easy solution to our problem that allows you to manage all these inboxes from your main alias.

 

It’ll make your life a lot easier because you’ll only have to stay logged in to 1 inbox, you can hook this inbox up to your CRM to never miss a lead, and there’s no need to save templates to new inboxes.

 

YouTube video

 

Getting started

 

To get started navigate to admin.google.com while logged in to the admin or main alias for the domain you’re managing.

 

Manage multiple inboxes

 

Go to Apps > Google Workspace > Gmail > Default Routing and start setting up a new forwarding rule.

 

Gsuite forwarding rule settings

 

In the next step, you’ll be asked which inbox you would like to receive all the emails from.

 

Manage multiple inboxes Gsuite

 

Here, put in the email address you’d like to forward to your main inbox. In our case, we’re looking to forward any email that comes into the “hdekker@getlyne.net” inbox to “hans@getlyne.net”.

 

Scroll down to “also deliver to” and click on “add”.

 

Gsuite advanced settings

 

Here, add the main inbox for your domain and instead of “basic” select “advanced”.

 

Workplace advanced settings

 

Under “spam and delivery options” uncheck “do not deliver spam to this recipient” to avoid having to still login and manually check spam (which you’re doing..right?!). Next, click save.

 

Advanced Gsuite Settings

 

Scroll down a bit further and make sure that “perform this action on non-recognized and recognized addresses” is selected and click “save” again.

 

GSuite for cold email

 

That’s it. Next, make sure you repeat the same action for every inbox you’d like to route to your main inbox and you’re good to go. You can now manage all these inboxes without awkward Fwd: threads or having to juggle multiple tabs & logins.

 

Some side notes

 

There are two small side notes to be made here. We’ll start with the most obvious one: you’ll now reply to the prospect from a different address than what they received the email from.

 

However, nearly no one notices and those who do, they don’t care. As long as you make sure that both inboxes are set up in the exact same way, meaning they both have the exact same pictures, signature, and sender name, there won’t be any issue here.

 

Another side note to be made here is that in theory, this could potentially (slightly) impact deliverability. Your alias inboxes will now only send & receive 1 email in a thread, and will never get a real email exchange going like most real humans would.

 

While there haven’t been any real numbers yet that support this theory, it’s something to potentially keep in mind. A simple solution to this would be to work with an email warmup tool that allows you to have email threads that go beyond just one email exchange.

 

What’s next?

 

What’s next is that you can now manage multiple inboxes without the headache. One great benefit that this brought for us is that we can now use Pipedrive’s double-sync feature to manage all these inboxes from our Pipedrive dashboard.

 

This means far less data entry work and we can simply create new leads in 2 clicks as they come in.

 

I hope this made your life a little easier as well. Want to make your (cold outreach) life even easier? Check out what we do at Lyne.ai.
