How to track emails – free tools
99% eh make that 99.9% of people I meet get excited to know that they can actually track whether the recipient has read their mail. Maybe I only meet people from other side but then this number is big enough to make me write about it. I will not get into benefits that tracking (There are atons of great reasons to use email tracking services) brings on the table like clients saying didn’t get your invoice and stuff…I am sure you will find many relevant to you. So let’s get back to the topic. Here’s how I do it
SalesHandy By far the best tool available. Works for both Gmail & Outlook. Throws real time notifications and helps you automatically track activities on file links send via email ( paid plans). It has also has a nice feature to links emails to CRM with just a check mark. SalesHandy also throws some templates for you to do kind of A/B testing, see which performs better and all that important analytics.
It doesn’t stop there, I was using a different plugin to schedule my emails but no more. SalesHandy also takes care of that. Worth giving a spin Sign up for SalesHandy and do more awesome things with better insights and analytics.
HubSpots Sidekick email tracking app not only gives you live notifications when someone opens or clicks on an email but also lets you know how many times, where and from what device. And NO it doesn’t stop here, You also get to know sender’s social media profiles and recent tweets and stuff and how he is communicating with you.
Only for Gmail
