    Hey Folks,

    I´m about to start my list-building.
    My lead-magnet is already set up.
    After requesting the lead-magnet, people will get 5 automated emails (with a delay of 2 days), which is fine for me.

    But what should come next? Would it make sense of creating another automated email-sequence in terms of long-term conversation which starts right after the first one ends? Or would you rather send individual emails to your list from time to time? I´m struggling with the idea of creating over 30 emails for an automated tong-term sequence :)

    This is something which prevents me from driving traffic to my lead-magnet. I´m afraid people could get cold after the first 5 emails.

    Thanks for your inspirations.
    Daniel

    I would
    1. loop my email test-list
    2. then
      Code:
      #! /bin/bash
      
      ##mail.sh
      cat file.csv  | while read line
      do
      days=$(( ( RANDOM % 7 )  + 1 ))
      addtime=$(( ( RANDOM % 59 )  + 1 ))
      echo '$days + $addtime /minutes added time'
      
      seq=$(bc <<<"(($days*24)*60)+($addtime)")
      echo $seq sequence send time /min
      mail=$(date -d   "$seq min" +'%Y:%m:%d %T')
      
      echo $line,$mail
      
      #do mail routine storage here MySQL  
      #Or, use epoch time in the real world<<<<
      done
      
      
      add the date to mail.
      now it is random like a human
    3. Code:
      :~$ ./mail.sh
      2 + 36 /minutes added time
      2916 sequence send time /min
      [email protected],2019-03-19 14:30:40
      2 + 17 /minutes added time
      2897 sequence send time /min

    Of course you could look for a tool to pay for every month :p
    *the secondswill always equal the start time of the script loop ;) (Milliseconds might change inside the loop.)
    epoch time:
    :~$ date +%s
    1552846376
    :~$ date --date='@1552846376'
