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.

Security

Woodpecker spots and notifies you about common mistakes in your campaigns. Thanks to that, you avoid non-existing or doubled email addresses and missing custom fields. Before activating a campaign, you may preview it and blacklist unwanted domains.

Stats

Woodpecker is data-driven by origin. It tracks your open rates, reply rates, click-through rates and bounce rates. You may optimize them by A/B testing your email copy and subject lines. Once you send your emails, you may mark the replies according to their sentiment.

Agency features

With Woodpecker, team collaboration is easy and efficient. Your teammates see all their clients in a single dashboard that allows them to turn companies on and off any time. Switching to another client takes just one click.

Conditional sequences

Woodpecker’s If-campaigns allow you to send diverse follow-ups triggered by your prospect’s behavior. You may create up to 5 versions of your message 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.

If-campaigns

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.

Integrations

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.

Pricing & trial

We give you 7 days to test all Woodpecker features.

Flexibility is a must in today’s uncertain world. That’s why we offer flexible pricing: you pay only for the features you really need. Start with $32 a month per seat (annual charging) and add selected extra modules if you need more.

Mailshake offers fixed pricing with plans starting from $44 a month per seat (annual charging).
