Woodpecker: Better than Mixmax for lots of reasons

While Mixmax only provides features for Gmail, Woodpecker was built specifically to work with cold emailing. This focus has helped us build components that optimize your cold outreach efforts – boosting lead generation through comprehensive automation and A/B testing.

Also, while of course we work with Gmail, Woodpecker also works with many other email service providers.

High deliverability

With a human-like sending algorithm, there is no doubt that Woodpecker is a better Mixmax alternative in terms of deliverability. With its built-in email verification and validation system, Woodpecker vastly reduces the number of bounces.

Cold emailing is all about landing in inboxes and Mixmax can’t compare with our record on deliverability.


Warming up emails is a very important process that helps you achieve top deliverability rates. Warm-up helps with this and is available for all Woodpecker users. It’s at least 5x cheaper than other warm-up tools.

Mixmax doesn’t offer a warm-up feature.

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.

That’s right – no other cold email tool on the market lets you track deliverability. 

What are users of Mixmax supposed to do? Guess how many of their mails were delivered?

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.

Our tools are always working in the background, making sure that you stay on the right side of the rules that ensure high deliverability of your cold emails.

Sequence optimization

Woodpecker automates your marketing workflow. You can conduct A/B tests to optimize your campaigns, automate follow-ups, and see performance reports so you’re not wasting time analyzing data manually. All while giving prospects the attention they deserve with Woodpecker’s personalized service.


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

This feature lets you adjust your messaging until the numbers say that you’ve got it juuuuuuuuust right. 


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 all your data holistically and never miss an insight.

Woodpecker plays well with everything you have in your existing tech stack!
