Part 1: Technical Aspects of Email Deliverability
In the world of B2B marketing, cold email outreach can be an effective strategy to generate leads and drive sales. However, the success of your cold email campaigns depends on various technical aspects of email deliverability. In this article, we will delve deeper into the strategy and logic behind each item of the cold email system, while referencing some ideas from your previous articles to provide a comprehensive understanding.
Factors Considered When Building Your Cold Email System
To develop an effective cold-emailing system, we have taken into account the following factors:
Bulk-emailing app necessary features and user experience:
Selecting the right bulk-emailing app is crucial for managing your cold email campaigns effectively. We recommend Saleshandy as a reliable and feature-rich option. Its comprehensive features and user-friendly interface make it suitable for scaling your B2B outreach efforts.
Utilizing multiple senders for higher email volumes:
To reach a significant daily email volume, it is important to use multiple senders. Each sender represents an email account with a specific domain, such as firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org esc.
By distributing the emails among different senders, you can avoid reaching the email service provider’s daily quota limit and improve deliverability.
Warming up each sender and building IP reputation:
It is crucial to warm up each sender gradually and build its IP reputation to establish credibility and improve deliverability. We recommend a gradual warm-up process over a specified period, gradually increasing the number of emails sent per day to avoid triggering any flags or bounces that could affect sender reputation.
Pricing is an important factor to consider when choosing email accounts and the bulk-emailing app. While Saleshandy offers a comprehensive solution, it is essential to evaluate the cost of each sender, the bulk-emailing app, and any additional services required
Email Quota Calculation
To ensure effective email sending, we recommend calculating the daily quota for each sender. In this example, we will consider using Google Workspace (formerly G Suite) as the email account provider:
Google Workspace allows for higher email sending limits, with over 2,000 emails per day for paid services.
To have senders with your company domain, the regular Gmail option is not suitable.
Considering a daily target of 10,000 emails, we recommend using Google Workspace and setting the quota at 2,000 emails per day per sender.
By utilizing five senders with a quota of 2,000 emails per day each, you can achieve the desired volume of 10,000 emails per day.
Sender Warm-up Plan
To ensure a successful warm-up process and maintain a positive sender reputation, we recommend following a gradual sending plan. The recommended plan is as follows:
Day 1 to day 14: warm up only
Day 14: Send 20 emails per day per sender.
Day 15: Increase to 40 emails per day per sender.
Day 16: Increase to 80 emails per day per sender.
Day 17: Increase to 160 emails per day per sender.
Day 18: Increase to 320 emails per day per sender.
Day 19: Increase to 700 emails per day per sender.
Day 20: Increase to 1,500 emails per day per sender.
Day 21: Increase to 2,000 emails per day per sender.
By gradually increasing the email volume, you can minimize the risk of triggering any flags or bounces, and build a positive sender reputation over time.

Visit the Google Domains website (https://domains.google/) and log in to your account.
Upon login, you will be redirected to the Google Domains page.
