What's the difference between an introduction email and a follow-up email?

DifferencesYou may have noticed that different membership levels allow you to send a certain number of free follow-up emails and/or introduction emails each month. For instance, Platinum Members are able to send 50 introduction emails AND 30 follow-up emails each month at no extra charge.

 

An introduction email differs from a follow-up email in that it is intended to be what the name implies and nothing more, a simple "introduction" or first contact. For accounting purposes, our system recognizes the very first email you send to a lady as an "introduction" email. All emails sent to that same lady after the first initial email are then considered "follow-up" emails. When you want to send an introduction email to a lady, you can do so using either the follow-up email icon (yellow envelope) or the introduction icon (red/yellow "i") located within her profile card on the left-hand side of your screen.

 

Regardless of which email icon you select within a lady's profile card (introduction or follow-up), if you have not sent her an email in the past, our system will recognize the email you are currently attempting to send as an introduction email and either deduct one free introduction email from your allotted limit if a Silver, Gold, or Platinum Member, or charge you accordingly if you have exceeded your free introduction email limit, or if you have a membership in which you do not receive free introduction emails (Bronze). This automated function ensures that regardless of which membership you are using, you will always use your free introduction emails first. Only after you exhaust your free email limit for a given month will you need to purchase credits to send additional emails.

 

If you have previously created an introduction email, when you attempt to send an email to a lady with whom you have never corresponded, your introduction email will be automatically displayed in the email window and you will be given the option to send it as it appears, or edit it before sending. If you have yet to create your introduction email, you can save one at any time by checking the "Save As Intro" box located within the email window before clicking the "Send" button.

 

By allowing you to save a standard introduction letter to our database, we have eliminated the need to cut and paste it every time you wish to send it. After saving your introduction letter, you will be able to send it to any woman you choose by simply selecting the "i" icon located within her profile card or the follow-up email icon (yellow envelope), and clicking "Send." You don't even have to add a salutation, as we automatically add a personalized salutation, including the lady's username, to the beginning of each introduction email you send.

 

Note: You can only send one introduction email to each lady. Upon doing so, the "i" icon located within her profile card will become inactive and change to a gray color. If you click on the email icon in a lady's profile card for whom you have already sent an introduction email, our system will recognize the email you are currently attempting to send as a follow-up email and either deduct one free follow-up email from your allotted limit if a Platinum Member, or charge you accordingly if you have exceeded your free follow-up email limit as a Platinum Member, or if you have a membership in which you do not receive free follow-up emails (Bronze, Silver, or Gold).
