Woodpecker: better Boomerang For Gmail alternative

While Boomerang For Gmail only automates your Gmail communication, Woodpecker is a platform that was built to automate cold emailing for any email channel. This aim has helped us create features that optimize your cold outreach activities.

Woodpecker’s features include comprehensive automation and A/B testing for better lead generation results.


Deliver emails to inboxes

Woodpecker will cut all your bounce rates down and make sure you’re guaranteed high deliverability from day 1. With its built-in email verification and validation system, Woodpecker vastly reduces the number of bounces.

Warm-up & Recovery

Email warm-up is different from domain warm-up. Woodpecker can handle both processes for you, as well as help you to recover your sender reputation.

Now get 4 slots (2 email + 2 warm-up) in the price of one.

*Unfortunately, from February 2023, Google no longer supports automated warm-up for Gmail accounts. However, you can still achieve the same results manually by following these simple steps.

Deliverability Monitor

Track your deliverability with Woodpecker and spot any issues before they happen so you can prevent them. No other cold email tool on the market allows you to do so.

Bounce Shield

With Woodpecker your deliverability is protected 24/7. Bounce Shield adjusts your sending frequency so you can be sure you won’t get blocked by your email provider for exceeding the sending limits.

Sequence optimization

Woodpecker automates follow-ups based on a prospect’s behavior. It also lets you conduct A/B tests to optimize your campaigns and gives you performance reports so you can focus more of your time understanding prospects instead of analyzing data manually.


Woodpecker’s ‘Yes’ and ‘No’ paths allow you to send diverse follow-ups depending on your prospect’s behaviour. Based on whether they opened your email, replied to it or clicked on a specific link, they will get a specific, personalized message sequence.

A/B tests

The built-in A/B testing feature allows you to test up to 5 different versions of your messages (both openers and follow-ups). You may modify their copy as well as subject lines to find the best match.


Woodpecker works as a central marketing data hub. You may integrate it with your CRM, prospecting tools and other sales and marketing software to bring all data into one place. Analyze it holistically and never miss an insight.
