ContactMonkey

If you are a sales rep and want to know if your email has been opened without having to use receipts this is perfect. However, many people find this intrusive and inappropriate. I don't believe in this day and age there should be a moral outrage to track your emails but it happens. I particularly like it for Outlook 2016. I've tried Yesaware but found this better suited.

Mailshake

Mailshake is best-suited sales, cold, and leads email outreach, the amount of personalized email you can send is excellent plus the follow-up. The sequence and lead catcher feature will save so much time.

Mailshake

  • It has an email editor which is easy to use.
  • Email sequences are comprehensive in their functionality--all the options you would expect from a cold emailing solution
  • Campaign and List management are also good

Cons

ContactMonkey

  • Salesforce integration seems unnecessary
  • Has refresh issues occasionally
  • Can cause slowing issues for Outlook
  • Doesn't have integration with Outlook.com/Exchange

Mailshake

  • Mailshake works only with Gmail/G Suite accounts.
  • The only option for customizing emails is in the CSV file. It would be great if there were a feature in the tool for this.
  • Missing starts about the total number of opens of an email (it is only tracked once).

I found it pretty good - we were able to put email templates and campaigns together almost immediately. The reason I gave it an 8 is because if you want to edit those templates, the saving and making sure they were part of the campaigns was a little tricky and not intuitive.

Quick support. They offer very extensive and detailed tutorials on how to use the tool, as well as how to succeed in sending emails the right way. It probably reduces the number of support tickets and general support needs. The videos make it very easy to use their solutions. Great way to educate new clients.

Alternatives Considered

ContactMonkey

Contact Monkey was the best solution for Outlook 2016. While Yesaware is a good product with Microsoft 365 integration, I found it expensive and too feature rich for what I needed. If you are just trying to find something simple that does what you need well and cheap, this is the best solution on the market. It does have Salesforce integration but I just use the Salesforce product that is free and provides the same or more prospect info.

Mailshake

These tools are undoubtedly reputable products that are used by millions of users. However, for the goal of lead generation by cold emailing, Mailshake shines by its genius approach of highest possible personalization of the messages. We see incredible results with every campaign; literally, multiples more of reply rates than we were able to achieve with the traditional email tools like Mailchimp.

Return on Investment

ContactMonkey

  • I've found companies that have shared my email and opened the email 20-60 times but never responded. It gave me an absolute understanding that this was a hot company
  • Sometimes knowing your email is being opened can be very frustrating if you cannot get a response. However, at least you know it was read and they are not interested.
  • My boss and fellow employee's don't like the fact that I know where they are located. It's somewhat divisive in that sense.
Dan Sherman | TrustRadius Reviewer

Mailshake

  • Mailshake has made link building outreach less messy and saves time.
  • Fill in the template and prospects and we are good to go!
