How to automatically categorize email replies

Getting replies from your prospect is great, but manually reviewing each reply takes time and can lead to human error. A solution is to automate your email categorization and save hours for other tasks that increase your revenue.

AI-based models, such as GPT-3, can help you avoid all the manual effort and give you more accurate results. You can integrate it into the lemlist sales engagement app using automation platforms.

Here’s a 3-step process that will help you set up GPT-3 x lemlist integration via make platform and automate:

  • Slack alerts when a lead is interested
  • the task creation when a lead is OOO
  • unsubscription of leads upon request

Step #1: Go to the OpenAI account to get your API key

→  If you already don’t have an OpenAI account, go to openai.com to sign up

→ Once you access your account, it’s time to get your API key:

  1. Click on your name in the top-right corner
  2. Choose to View API Keys
  3. Create a new secret key

Step #2: Go to the lemlist account to get your API key

  1. If you already don’t have a lemlist account, go to lemlist.com and sign up for a free trial
  2. In the lemlist app, click on the top left corner dropdown menu and choose Settings
  3. Go to Integrations
  4. Under the API section, click on Generate button (if you already don’t have the API key)

Step 3#: Create your sales automation workflow in make

→ If you already don’t have make account, you can start your free trial at make.com

1. Download the blueprint JSON here

2. Log into make app and click on Scenarios to create a new scenario

3. Choose to Import Blueprint

4. For each module, you'll have to authenticate yourself

  • lemlist → add your API key
  • HubSpot → Use 0Auth
  • OpenAI → add your API key

5. Save your module and activate it.

You can create the same integration with Slack, Pipedrive, Salesforce, and many other apps. Here are all the options that can help you boost outreach efficiency.

If you want to save hours of sales work with GPT-3 x lemlist integration, you can also do it with the n8n automation platform. Check out how in this article. 👇
