Cold Email Quickstart Guide - Setting up your Tech Stack
There’s only 2 things you need to get started with Cold Email. Both of these tools come with a free trial.
- Lead Engines to build Cold Email Lists ($199/month)
- Lemlist to manage cold email campaigns ($50/month)
Which means your minimum all-in cost is about $250/month but you can try it for the first 14 days for free.
Here’s a step by step guide on how to set them up so you can start getting leads.
Step 1: Go to Lemlist and create a free account. When your free trial is over you’ll want the Lemlist Gold plan. You need it for the Lead Engines integration and it also includes a feature that automatically warms up your domain.
- A physical address where you can receive mail
- A message that says they can opt by asking you to stop.
Step 4: Go to Settings > Limits and set the global daily maximum to 20 emails for now. For the first few weeks you won’t want to send more than that until you upgrade your account and get the lemwarm feature. (Optionally, just upgrade now and get lemwarm immediately).
Step 2: Go to the integrations page and integrate with Lemlist. Click “Find my API Key on Lemlist” and insert that key into Lead Engines.
Step 3: Go to the Billing page and activate your Lead Engines free trial.
