Nudges revolutionize your email follow-ups, offering a 'set and forget' solution that eliminates the need to manually remember to send follow-up messages. This powerful feature ensures your emails never get lost in the clutter of an inbox, streamlining communication with clients, candidates, and colleagues alike. By automating follow-ups, nudges save you time and enhance the effectiveness of your email interactions, allowing you to focus on more important tasks. Discover how nudges can simplify business development, candidate sourcing, and internal team communication, making every email count without the added effort of manual follow-ups.

πŸ“ˆ Business Development:

  1. Client not responded to a candidate CV you sent over?

    1. Initiate a nudge sequence for an automatic follow-up, ensuring you don't miss out on potential opportunities.

  2. Client responded to your marketing email without providing all the necessary information?

    1. Reply and add them into a nudge sequence, so if they don't get back to you, you don't lose them in your inbox.

  3. Submitted a proposal to a potential client?

    1. After submitting a proposal, use nudge sequences to automatically follow up in case the client doesn't reply, demonstrating your interest and preventing opportunities from slipping through the cracks.

  4. Sending a contract through to a client and want to make sure they respond?

    1. Attach a nudge sequence to make sure the client returns the signed contract in a timely manner.

πŸŽ“ Candidate Sourcing:

  1. Conducted an initial interview with a candidate and it went well?

    1. Send an email scheduling next steps and attach a nudge sequence to remind candidates if they haven't got back to you in a couple of days.

  2. Candidate recently had an interview and you want to know how it went?

    1. Email the candidate asking for feedback and attach a nudge sequence to follow up incase they don't reply.

  3. Candidate received a contract and you want to make sure they sign?

    1. Help finalise the hiring process by using a nudge sequence to remind the candidate to sign the contract but also to clarify any doubts they may have, facilitating a prompt signing.

πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ’» Internal:

  1. Sent your boss an email to review a great candidate profile that you interviewed?

    1. Add them to a nudge sequence so they don't forget to come back to you with feedback so you don't lose a potential candidate and can fill a job.

  2. Juggling multiple tasks and responsibilities within your team?

    1. Use nudges to remind team members of upcoming deadlines, meetings, or important tasks that need to be completed, helping to ensure that nothing falls through the cracks.
