How do I use Mailbutler’s sponsored actions on the Essential plan?

What are sponsored actions

So what happens when you use up all your actions for the month? Don’t worry. As an essential plan user, Mailbutler makes it possible for you to continue using your favorite Professional and Business features by activating “sponsored actions“.

Once activated,  a Mailbutler link to our website will be added to the bottom of your outgoing emails.

How to activate sponsored actions

The following window will pop-up when you try to use a Professional or Business feature after you have used up all 30 free actions in one month.
