Woodpecker vs. Mailshake?
Should you use Woodpecker or Mailshake for cold outreach? Read this to find out.
Is Woodpecker any good?
Let's start with Woodpecker. People tend to use Woodpecker for automated email campaigns, which the tool can do. But there have been reports of critical bugs and unhelpful support coming from users on independent review platforms like G2.
“[Woodpecker] is chasing the money and has made the software difficult to use. [Their] customer service people do not care about the customers.”
What about Mailshake, then?
At the same time, the most common use case for Mailshake seems to be personalized outreach and re-engagement campaigns. Still, some Mailshake users have been reporting limited functionality and poor email formatting.
“First, it is breaking all campaigns (even scheduled), second, an out-of-office reply is counted as a potential lead, so it doesn't send follow-ups to those people.”
Which one should you pick?
If neither Woodpecker nor Mailshake 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 Woodpecker and Mailshake. 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 Woodpecker or Mailshake 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.

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