Focus: The focus of this public FAQ/Self Help guide is to provide you an overview and details about building Cliently flows with Gift action.
What is a Gift Action and why should I send one? A Gift Action allows you to send a Gift card and one handwritten note to ship directly to your potential leads/contacts. The goal of the gift and handwritten note is to create a super personal touch during the sales process - usually as a closing action or follow-up to an already established conversation. At this point, the lead already knows you by name and may even have had a conversation with you on the phone or in person. Ideally, this would be the encouragement to open the letter - the personalization and the name recognition.
Instant Action with Gift - Please Note: With this action, you can also perform an “Instant Action” and send out a Gift WITHOUT adding to a flow. Click here to learn more.
