Woodpecker: a more powerful Outreach alternative

Woodpecker is simple and intuitive. It maximizes open rates by sending follow-ups in the same thread and allows you to add manual tasks (meet Ana, text Ben, etc.) in between campaigns.

Improved deliverability

Thanks to algorithms that work in the background at all times to keep your messages away from spam folders, Woodpecker is a better Outreach alternative in terms of deliverability. It slashes your bounce rates from the first day by automatically verifying your prospects’ email addresses to protect your domain.

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.

This is a free feature in all accounts in Woodpecker.

Outreach doesn’t offer a warm-up & recovery feature.

So free warm-up & recovery at Woodpecker or no warm-up & recovery at Outreach?

*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 correct them. No other cold email tool on the market allows you to do this.

Deliverability is crucial for all email campaigns — have you checked to see what unique features Outreach offers to make sure your messages get delivered? 

(Spoiler alert – They don’t offer any).

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 sending limits.

It’s easy to set off spam radars even when you don’t mean to. Our algorithms are always working in the background to make sure you don’t accidentally break the rules that can negatively affect your deliverability.

Sequence optimization

Woodpecker adjusts follow-ups to your recipients’ actions. It allows you to design complex email sequences based on precise behavioral triggers.

Woodpecker’s testing features combined with informative performance reports help you find the sequence that works best for specific prospect segments.

Woodpecker helps you reach out to prospects much more effectively than Outreach. 


The ‘Yes’ and ‘No’ paths allow you to send diverse follow-ups based on triggers such as email opens, link clicks or message replies. Your prospects receive context-specific messages that drastically increase their engagement.

A/B tests

The built-in A/B testing feature allows you to test diverse subject lines and email copy. Create up to 5 versions (both openers and follow-ups) and experiment with them until you find the perfect match.


You may integrate Woodpecker with major CRMs, prospecting tools and other popular business software. Thanks to that, you can analyze all your marketing and sales data from a single dashboard.
