How Does Woodpecker Send Your Emails & Follow-ups?

“I have sent a test campaign from Woodpecker, but it looks like it sends the emails very slowly…,” said Till – one of our beta testers. He sounded disappointed. We were surprised that he saw it as a drawback. We didn’t realize that we see it as an advantage because we know exactly how Woodpecker works. Once we explained to Till how the emails are sent and why so, he found it very interesting and said that it would make a great topic for a blog post. So this one is for you, Till! ;) And for all of you who are not really sure how Woodpecker sends your emails and follow-ups, and why it works this way.

Features vs. Benefits – How to Present Your Product in a Cold Email?

We’ve been talking with our users about the copy of their emails.

That’s why it’s important we talk benefits instead of features when communicating with our potential customers. Here’s how to learn the difference between the features and benefits and how to write about benefits instead of features in your cold email pitch.
