Outreach vs. Woodpecker?

Should you use Outreach or Woodpecker for cold outreach? Read this to find out.

Is Outreach any good?

Let's start with Outreach. People tend to use Outreach for composing sequences and scheduling emails, which the tool can do. But there have been reports of poor support and frequent outages coming from users on independent review platforms like G2.

Do not recommend using [Outreach], extremely buggy and has been a huge hassle for our sales team.

What about Woodpecker, then?

At the same time, the most common use case for Woodpecker seems to be automated email campaigns. Still, some Woodpecker users have been reporting critical bugs and unhelpful support.

[Woodpecker] is chasing the money and has made the software difficult to use. [Their] customer service people do not care about the customers.

Which one should you pick?

If neither Outreach nor Woodpecker feels like a perfect fit, and you're looking for a powerful cold email tool that can scale, you might want to consider QuickMail.

We keep seeing companies (especially agencies) increasingly switch to QuickMail from both Outreach and Woodpecker. We're yet to see our customers experience any of the problems mentioned above.

Incredible software, incredible support... this is one of the most reliable and well built platforms I use.

Scale campaigns easily and quickly

With QuickMail, you’re not limited to a single inbox per campaign. We're one of the few Outreach or Woodpecker alternatives to have inbox rotation.

Just add an inbox (or five) to your existing campaign and we’ll spread the load across several inboxes. That way, you can increase the daily sending limit of a campaign without endangering your deliverability. All that with a single click.

Plus, you'll see how much easier it becomes to run AB-tests and make tweaks on a single campaign instead of a dozen.


Don't let Outreach or Woodpecker put you at risk

When cold outreach is a crucial part of your business, the last thing you want to deal with is Outreach or Woodpecker having stability issues.

QuickMail has been around since 2014, and we've invested heavily into making our software as stable and reliable as possible.

In fact, we're spending an outsized amount of time learning from our mistakes and incidents to make sure those won't happen twice. And we have our uptime to show for it.

Enjoy top-notch deliverability

If Outreach or Woodpecker isn't delivering the emails that you send, nothing else will matter. QuickMail is laser-focused on getting your emails into people’s inboxes – from the way we handle sending to warming up your inbox for free.


Enjoy 2-way sync with your CRM

Does Outreach or Woodpecker make it a pain to work with your CRM? QuickMail makes it a non-issue.

With our best-in-class HubSpot and Pipedrive (coming soon) integrations, you'll never have to worry about prospect data being out-of-date. 

Sync people's personal details, contact information, tags, and custom attributes without having to waste your time double-checking if the info is updated in either system.

Enjoy the (truly) best support

Does Outreach or Woodpecker support insult you by using canned replies, templates, or asking you to turn on and off your computer?

We won't. Our customer support is in the business of solving problems, not marking tickets closed.

QuickMail is a great tool, we moved from [a different tool] and we can do so much more here. It has a bit more nuances, but once it's set up, it's really good. Thanks.
