Woodpecker: a better alternative to GetResponse

While GetResponse only provides features for Gmail and Microsoft 365, Woodpecker was built specifically to work with cold emailing regardless of your emailing platform.

This focus on cold emails has helped us build components that optimize your cold outreach efforts – boosting lead generation through comprehensive automation and A/B testing.

Deliver emails to inboxes

Woodpecker is the gold standard when it comes to email deliverability. With a built-in system that verifies email addresses, you can be assured of high deliverability from day one without having to worry about bounce rates!

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.

Warmed-up emails and domains are more trusted by email service providers and so land in prospect inboxes.

GetResponse doesn’t offer a warm-up & recovery feature, so you just have to take your chances. GetResponse? More like GetRed-Flagged and sent to a spam folder. 

*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 this.

Look at all those red X’s on the table below — when it comes to protecting your deliverability, GetResponse is nowhere to be found.

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

With Woodpecker, you can adjust your follow-ups and trigger responses to each prospect’s behavior. Automate your replies to enhance your personalization and keep the conversation going without your direct involvement.

When combined with A/B testing capabilities and automatically generated performance reports, which take manual analytics off your plate, this system helps entrepreneurs focus more on what matters: understanding their customer base better than ever before!


Woodpecker’s ‘Yes’ and ‘No’ paths allow you to send diverse follow-ups depending on your prospect behavior. 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 can modify their copy as well as subject lines to find the best match.


Woodpecker works as a central marketing data hub. You can 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.
