Do you ever feel overwhelmed by your email inbox? If you are like most REALTORS¬ģ, you likely have hundreds, if not thousands, of messages sitting in your account taking up valuable storage space and decreasing your productivity. And who could blame you? Communicating with an ever-changing list of clients and customers ‚Äď not to mention team members and colleagues ‚ÄĒ is a lot to keep track of! How many times have you kept an email longer than you needed to just so that you would remember to follow up with someone or complete a task? How freeing would it be to clear out all of your inbox clutter without anything falling through the cracks?

FollowUpThen offers relief from the endless pile-up of emails by putting them ‚Äúon a shelf‚ÄĚ until you actually need to deal with them. This email tool allows you to clean out even the most important emails, and then sends them back to you at just the right time. Simply send the email to a specified FollowUpThen email address, and you can then delete it with confidence, knowing it will come back when you need it. Your brain can focus on more urgent tasks because all messages that do not require your immediate attention are out of sight and out of mind‚Ķfor now.

For example, if you want to wait a few weeks before acting on a particular email, simply forward it to the address 3weeks@followupthen.com. FollowUpThen will then return that email to you in three weeks, when you are ready to deal with it. Or, if you know that you will need to reread the information tomorrow at noon, sent it to tomorrow12pm@followupthen.com. For messages that are ultra important or urgent, use everyweekday@followupthen.com to get daily reminders.

Sound confusing and complicated? Don‚Äôt worry ‚ÄĒ the autocomplete feature has that covered, making it super simple to assign follow-up dates and times with the correct email address, usually with one or two taps!

Tired of waiting for certain people to get back to you? FollowUpThen also offers a response detection feature that will help to ensure that you get a response from any ‚Äúforgetful‚ÄĚ recipients. You can set up an automatic reminder to be sent to yourself if the recipient has not yet responded after a designated period time, and you can also sent an auto-reminder to the recipient as well.

Scheduling reminders for up to 15 other people at once can help to increase efficiency for everyone on your team by delegating and managing tasks. No more keeping emails as reminders ‚ÄĒ let FollowUpThen be your very precise (and persistent) personal assistant.

Imagine an inbox full of nothing but relevant information and tasks that require attention in that particular moment. You see what you need to see when you need to see it ‚ÄĒ and nothing else.

FollowUpThen works with any email system on any device. The free version offers limited features, but premium plans are available for as little as $2/month and offer additional options such as calendar integration, response detection, SMS reminders and customization.
