Efficiency by focus

While Mailshake offers features for various online channels, Woodpecker was designed specifically for cold emailing. This focus helped us develop features that optimize your cold outreach efforts.

Woodpecker allows you to maximize open rates using A/B testing, sending follow-ups in the same thread and adding manual tasks (call John, text Ana, etc.) in between campaigns.

Optimized deliverability

Unlike Mailshake, Woodpecker has a number of features that maximize deliverability from day 1. Its built-in email verification and validation system prevents unnecessary bounces, so you don’t have to worry about your domain reputation.

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.

Optimizing campaigns

Woodpecker’s If-campaigns allow you to send diverse follow-ups triggered by your prospect’s behavior. With A/B tests, you may create up to 5 versions of an email and check which works best for your prospects.

Woodpecker performs the analytics for you by generating comprehensive performance reports after each campaign. With the data in place, you can easily optimize your efforts.


You can configure ‘Yes’ and ‘No’ paths for each campaign. Woodpecker will choose which one to follow depending on whether (or how many times) your prospect opened the email, replied to it or clicked on a link.

A/B tests

With the built-in A/B testing feature, you can experiment with your emails until you reach the best-performing copy and subject line. Create up to 5 different versions of your message (both opener and follow-ups) and put them to the test.


Woodpecker puts data in the first place. You may integrate it with major CRMs, prospecting tools and other common sales software and easily analyze all your efforts.
