After much anticipation and countless requests from Contactually users, we are very excited to announce the release of our new Pipelines feature!
This Pipeline shows various stages of a sales cycle for prospects.
Click here to watch our 50 second demo video to learn more about Pipelines.
Our Pipelines tool allows you to visualize your deals from open to close according to your customized phases, and shows which deals may be falling through the cracks. By assigning values to deals, Contactually also aggregates the current value of your pipeline and shows which deals are won or lost.
In keeping with our core follow-up feature, Pipelines will show you if your deal is going cold by marking it visually. Multiple contacts can be assigned to each deal, which more accurately mimics the realities of large deals today.
Create multiple stages for each Pipeline and share it with your team.
We are especially excited about the ability to share deals and pipelines across your professional team. This will allow colleagues to better collaborate and see, at a cursory glance, which deals are in what phase and which deals need extra attention to successfully close.
For professionals with different products or services, Pipelines offers the ability to template and show multiple pipelines. This is very powerful across teams by showing pipelines for sales, business development, project management and more. Additionally, Pipelines can be broken down according to individuals on a team to allow a manager to better understand performance and provide assistance when needed.
Pipelines is available today to all trialing, Small Business and Enterprise users. Existing starter and Premium users that wish to use Pipelines can upgrade their accounts in their Plans Settings to use this powerful tool.

All right. We’d be lying if we said relationship building weren’t incredibly important in both your professional and personal life. Think about it: repeat referral business essentially skyrockets if you maintain relationships with past clients. Crazy, right? And now that content marketing has exploded onto the scene, relationship building has changed for the better, and more emphasis is being put on providing value.
And with that, we present you nine stats everyone who builds personal and professional relationships needs to know about content marketing:
We’ve all had it happen: the follow up nightmare.
It started with the best intention. “Hey Tony, it’s been a while. How are you?” A day later, your inbox shutters. Turns out Tony is doing REALLY well, and he’s written 2 paragraphs to tell you about it, along with another paragraph asking about your business and another few sentences asking for pictures of your dog. You tell your assistant to cancel your calls for the day and prepare to email Tony back.
Relationship marketing is a tricky balance: write a message through email/social media that is too general and you run the risk of losing personal connections. Write it with too much interest and inquiry, however, and you will end up burying yourself in a huge pile of work responding back. Or worse, not responding and hurting key business relationships.
Seeing some of the best email habits of highly successful people, I’ve compiled a list of tips to help craft your messages:
If you’re a Contactually user, we hope you’ve taken advantage of our email templates feature by now. Email templates allow you to supercharge your email marketing, as you can efficiently engage your contacts with the powerful messages that you’ve elected to keep handy for future use.
However, keep in mind that email templates are only as powerful as the message they contain, so it’s important to continually test and tweak your templates in order to maximize the ROI on your email outreach efforts. Here are 5 tips to make sure that you consistently get the most from your email templates.
1. Leverage dynamic fields
Thanks to a neat little tool called dynamic fields, Contactually can help personalize your email templates once you’ve selected its recipient without requiring you to remember any of the fine details yourself. Dynamic fields can pull almost any piece of data from your contact’s profile — including first name last name, email address, job title, the month in which you last spoke, and even more — and insert it directly into the message body for each recipient.
In short, email templates and their ability to make your messages more personal will allow you to reach a much higher number of prospects in a day, while keeping your tone conversational and expanding your brand recognition. In turn, you’ll notice higher open and response rates across the board.
There is no one-size-fits-all email for follow-ups, monthly newsletters, welcome autoresponders, or the ability to get your email to stand out in inboxes. Yet, email marketing is inherently about sending to more than one person at a time. So, once a potential or past client has received your marketing emails, how do you connect with your contacts in a meaningful, individualized way? Here’s how you do it in three steps: segmentation, personalization, and the targeting of content.
List segmentation is the ultimate tool for refining your lists to groups or demographics that make sense to send to together. Rather than segmenting based on the content you want to send, try experimenting with letting segments determine some of your content. For instance, search and segment your lists by geolocation, email domains of interest, or buyer personas. You can even check out this list of 27 ways to segment your contacts or check out how to rate your network.

Ever get fed up feeling that other people get opportunities because of who they know?
Ever think, “if her daddy wasn’t rich/the CEO/Donald Trump, then nobody would listen to her?”
Yes? Then it’s time to ask yourself “who’s your daddy?”… and if he can’t open doors for you, it’s time to find a “daddy” who can.
Matthew Kimberley, Head of the Book Yourself Solid School Of Coach Training, will show you how to get a meatier, more supportive entourage of influencers and super-sneezers. He’ll show you how to build meaningful relationships with powerful people, even if they don’t know you from Adam… or Eve.
Because, after all, it’s not WHAT you know, but WHO you know.
In this free webinar, you’ll learn how to:
- Find the right people to blow your trumpet for you
- Approach them so they pay attention to you
- Be simply unforgettable
- Not be a “stalker” and blow your chances with them straight away
- …and so much more.
