Does a Calendar link in your signature increase chances of being sent to spam?

Hi all- If you or colleagues use Calendly or Chili Piper or some other scheduling link in your signature, have you seen an increase in the rate at which you get sent to spam? Or a decrease in open rates?

I think it's cheese on a cold email. Shows they don't respect the relationship. But I am speaking from my roles. If it's high churn deals, sure why not. Not my wheelhouse.ย

Yeah as I do some research into our own open rates, and ask around here and on LinkedIn, I'm seeing that best practice is probably to use it AFTER a prospect has already expressed interest.

Totally my thought.

We've implemented it but I don't use it until we're actually talking about scheduled meetings.ย

Email security platforms will detect links with common domains and mark them as spam. E.g. HubSpot, Calendly, Chilli Piper, etc. Deliverability also goes down in general with each additional link you put into an email.

Yes. The more links, the more likely it is to go to spam

Yup.ย 

I don't even send emails with a company logo signature anymore.ย

Any link increases your chance of ending in spam. Salesloft and outreach documentation says as much

I've come across some organizations that will deny emails just for having any link/photo in there. So while I definitely prefer to have my company's logo and my personal linkedin in my bio, I have to pay the price for it every once in a while

For all you mail mergers out there, do you see more success emailing one DM or all DMs on a custom thread? I've noticed that putting all relevant DMs on one campaign that is 100% customized to their business has a much higher response rate (28% meeting sucess)

How many reach outs (email, call, LinkedIn, etc.) with no response does it take for you to take that prospect off your list?
