New in Highrise — our Small Business CRM


Saved Filters, Bulk Email Improvements, And More

Happy New Year! We hope you had a great time celebrating the holidays and the end of 2017. It’s been a cold start to ours here at Highrise Headquarters in Chicago, but we’re thawing out now. Though it’s back to 7F next week. Oh well, it keeps us inside working on this stuff for you 🙂 We’ve got some great improvements, and it’s all setting us up for exciting things coming soon…

P.S. You can also follow more behind the scenes on how we design products, run the business, and try to just get through life at a YouTube channel I created.

Bulk Email Filters

We released Broadcast bulk email as a new feature for Highrise just over 2 years ago.

Since then the usage of the feature has been going up and up:


And many customers have sent so many Broadcasts it’s now hard to find them if they’re looking for something sent awhile back.

So today to celebrate the 2 year anniversary of Broadcast, we introduce filtering for your bulk emails:

Bulk Email Quota

Each paid Highrise account is allocated a rolling monthly quota of bulk emails equal to the number of contacts in their plan.

For example, accounts on our basic plan come with up to 5,000 contacts so can send 10 bulk emails to 500 contacts or 5 bulk emails to 1,000 contacts — any combination up to 5,000 bulk emails each month.

No extra charge, you pay the same $24 you’ve always paid for six users.

Many of our users have taken advantage of this, sending bulk emails, but never really knowing the limit (or whether there was one) as long as they didn’t hit the quota.

Today we announce a small, but useful feature to help you avoid composing and sending a message only to find you’re out of quota for the month:
