Frequently Asked Questions

General faqs

How Do I get started?

Getting started is super easy! Just visit our PRICING PAGE and select the plan that is right for you and open an account. You'll have instant access to your account so you can upload your contacts and send your first message in a matter of minutes! 

How often are my messages sent? 

Our Keep-In-Touch messages are sent out every 3 weeks because after sending over a billion emails, our statistics show that this cycle increases engagement and decreases the number of people who unsubscribe or report your email as spam. 

Can I approve or edit my email before it's sent? 

Of course! You'll get an email from us letting you know that a message is ready for your review and approval. We provide multiple emails for you to choose from which you can view, approve, and even edit the message easily in your account. 

What is your email open rate?

Happy Grasshopper has an average email open rate of 38.6%, which is almost double the traditional open rates reported for the real estate industry. Our emails are fun and engaging and people actually WANT to open and interact with them! 

Does Happy Grasshopper send Handwritten cards?

Yes you can! Handwritten cards are an ala carte purchase for all of our account types, including Chirp. They are an amazing way to make an impression on your Sphere of Influence and past clients! 

We use a robot arm that holds an actual ink pen to write out your message on a high quality card. You can choose from a number of fonts to pick one that most closely resembles how you write. The cards are then stuffed into an envelope and a first class stamp is attached and you card is dropped into a mailbox for delivery to your client. 

do text messages come from my phone number?

Federal law prohibits "spoofing" phone numbers so we cannot send directly from your number, but you are able to select a dedicated number to send from. All replies and calls will be forwarded directly to your cell phone automatically.

What is a voicemail drop or ringless voice mail?

A "voicemail drop," or ringless voicemail, is exactly what it sounds like - it is a voicemail that is left on the receiver's phone without their phone ever ringing. That allows us to deliver a pre-recorded voicemail from you to your contact without disturbing them by making their phone go off. 

Can I email a mailing list I purchased?

Absolutely not! Not only is this a violation of the CANSPAM (US) and CASL (Canada) laws, it is also a violation of the Happy Grasshopper Spam Policy.   Doing this will result in a permanent ban of your account and no refunds will be given for unused time.  

What's your refund policy?

We offer a 30 day 100% money back guarantee for all new accounts. Once your 30 days is up, no refunds are offered and your account would be canceled effective on your next billing date. 

No refunds are available for any of our add-on features such as additional text messages, voicemail drops, handwritten cards, or any custom written content.    

is my information safe?

Absolutely! Your personal and client information is stored on our secure servers and we will never share or sell your information with anyone. You can read our full privacy policy here.

Your billing information is also secured by multiple layers of bank-grade security to ensure a safe, worry-free transaction.
