In this lesson, you’ll learn how BuzzStream makes it easy to track responses and follow up on your outreach.

When you send outreach, BuzzStream will automatically change the relationship stage of your contacts to “Attempting to reach,” so you don’t have to worry about making sure the relationship stage matches where your contacts actually are in your conversations with them. Likewise, when your contact replies, BuzzStream will automatically update the relationship stage to “Replied.”

You can sort your contacts by relationship stage by clicking on the Relationship Stage column heading, or filter contacts by relationship stage by clicking on filter, relationship stage, then selecting the stage you’d like to see.

If you’d like to be reminded when it’s time to follow-up on your outreach, you can set a reminder when sending your outreach.

Then, when it’s time to follow-up, you’ll receive a notification in the upper right hand corner indicating which contact you need to follow up on.
