There's the SNOOZE feature on Gmail, did you know? You can bring an email back to the top of your inbox with the snooze button. 📥🕰️
⌚At Mailtracker, we wanted to add a feature of our own - the Follow-up reminder.
While snooze is more for received emails (or emails sent), the Follow-up reminder is specifically designed for the emails you are about to send.
Indeed, when you send an email on a Friday, you can schedule a follow-up reminder that will pop up on Tuesday if the person hasn't replied yet. ⏰📧
You'll never forget to follow up on an email again!

10 reasons why to set up the Mailtracker Follow-up reminder in Gmail?
Setting up a follow-up reminder in an email can be a strategic and practical move for several reasons:
1/ Proposal Pursuit:
- Scenario: You've sent a crucial proposal to a potential client. Use Mailtracker's follow-up reminder to ensure it resurfaces if the client hasn't opened it within a specified timeframe. This ensures you stay top-of-mind during decision-making.
2/ Job Application Follow-Up:
- Scenario: You've applied for a dream job and want to make sure your resume gets the attention it deserves. Set a follow-up reminder to prompt you to check in if there's been no response within a reasonable period.
3/ Sales Pitch Precision:
- Scenario: You've pitched your product or service to a lead. Use the follow-up reminder to bring your proposal back into focus if the recipient hasn't engaged with it. It's like giving your pitch a second chance to shine.
4/ Event Invitation Etiquette:
- Scenario: You've invited important guests to an event. Set follow-up reminders for the invitations, ensuring you can follow up graciously if the invites haven't been opened or responded to.
5/ Newsletter Impact Measurement:
- Scenario: You've sent out a newsletter to your subscribers. Use follow-up reminders to track engagement. If certain contacts haven't opened the newsletter, consider tailoring a follow-up message to rekindle their interest.
6/ Educational Outreach:
- Scenario: You've sent course information to potential students. Use follow-up reminders to identify who hasn't reviewed the material. This way, you can provide additional information or assistance as needed.
7/ Contract Confirmation:
- Scenario: You've sent a contract for review. Set up a follow-up reminder to ensure the document doesn't go unnoticed. This is especially valuable for time-sensitive agreements or legal matters.
8/ Networking Persistence:
- Scenario: You've reached out to a professional contact. If they haven't opened your email, the follow-up reminder prompts you to circle back with a friendly follow-up, reinforcing your commitment to the connection.
9/ Survey Participation Boost:
- Scenario: You've sent out a survey to gather valuable feedback. Use follow-up reminders to target those who haven't opened the survey, encouraging them to share their thoughts and insights.
10/ Content Collaboration Coordination:
- Scenario: You've shared collaborative documents or content for review. Set up follow-up reminders to prompt a check-in if collaborators haven't engaged, ensuring a smooth workflow and timely feedback.
By strategically using Mailtracker's Follow-up reminder feature in these scenarios, you can enhance your communication effectiveness and ensure that important emails don't get lost in the shuffle.
