Lead generation for nearly any kind of business. I can't even explain how easy it is to set everything up. I also love that I can send test emails to myself. Sequencing and Scheduling out follow-ups help me stay on top of potential sales, especially smaller sales that aren't always on my radar 24/7. Sending post-sale information on a regular basis. Basically, Gmelius works for the entire sales cycle, pre to post.

Usability
Abstract
Abstract has a difficult learning curve. If a feature-branch workflow is new to you, then it will take some getting used to. They make a lot of updates to the interface and these feature releases get ahead of their documentation. They rely heavily on an excellent customer support team and are present on various Slack channels to help design professionals with issues.

Support Rating
Abstract
Abstract by nature is complex and has to respond to whatever changes in Sketch. So there are frequent issues. Support can be slow to respond and are not always helpful, but they are quick to find and patch the bugs. Overall, it's not the best support, but it hasn't been detrimental.

We switched to Gmelius from Mixmax because we wanted to try the inbox/label sharing features. Ultimately, Mixmax is more accurate with tracking opens, and it is much more user friendly. We switched back to Mixmax after about a year using Gmelius. Mailshake is also a better tool for sending out high volumes of emails, as it is better at making sure your email address doesn't get flagged as spam.

  • I reliably post 20-30% higher activity numbers weekly due to my use of Gmelius
  • Gmelius is a significant contributer to my sales success -- The last two years I have more than doubled company-issued sales targets
  • Gmelius saves me tons of time each week due to automated campaigns. I would say I've reclaimed at least 20% of my work week scheduling out follow up and pre-scheduling lead gen email campaigns out.
