How to Find Ideal Prospects in and Export Them to Woodpecker


For effective cold email campaigns you need perfectly selected prospects. In an ideal case scenario, you should be able to browse people’s profiles to pick only those who match your ICP. Quickreach allows you to do that. And now, Quickreach integrated with Woodpecker to enable you to push those carefully picked prospects to Woodpecker with just two clicks.

This way, you’re able to save time on each of the three prospecting stages: searching for prospects, managing your prospect base, and managing your email outreach. Check how the integration works and how you can use it to safely add new contacts to your campaigns in Woodpecker.

What is Quickreach?

Quickreach is a prospecting tool that allows you to search companies matching your ICP and find contacts to people in those companies. You can search within the panel after logging into your account on their website, or your can install the Chrome extension to collect contacts of the right people when browsing companies’ websites.

We’ve reviewed the app before. Go to this post to read the interview with the founder Bryan Hackett and a descripton of our experience with the tool.

How the Woodpecker+Quickreach integration can actually help you?

But first things first, here’s what you can gain thanks to the integration:

Explore the new source of verified contacts

If you’re sending your email campaigns using Woodpecker, you constantly need new prospects. You can find the contacts in Quickreach, and then push them straight to a chosen campaign in Woodpecker.

Find contacts to new companies similar to your most loyal customers

Quickreach allows you to find companies that are similar to the companies you already enjoy working with. Then, it allows you to find specific people’s emails at those companies. That’s not really a feature of the integration itself, but it’s a great opportunity Quickreach gives you to find prospects matching your ICP more easily. And that’s really important.

Forget about .csv files, save time

The time you now spend exporting contacts to .csv from a prospecting tool and importing them to Woodpecker can be regained thanks to the integration. You’ll be able to conveniently and safely export your contact list from Quickreach to Woodpecker within just a couple of clicks.

How does the integration work?

So, how do you actually connect Woodpecker to Quickreach? Here’s the process divided into simple steps:

  1. Log in to your accounts in Woodpecker and Quickreach.
  2. In Woodpecker, go to Settings > API Keys > Create a Key
  3. In Quickreach go to Account  > Integrations > Woodpecker API Key and paste the key you’ve generated in Woodpecker.


There, the two apps are now connected.

  1. Now, to export your contacts from Quickreach to Woodpecker:
  2. Go to a Manage lists in Quickreach. Pick a list to be exported.
  3. Use the button Export Contacts to Woodpecker.
  4. You will see a list of campaigns in Woodpecker. Pick the one that you want to add new prospects to.

Important note: You’ll be able to export contacts only to campaigns that are not running at the moment.

Why can’t I export contacts to running campaigns?

That’s because we wanted to give you a chance to preview the newly imported contacts in Woodpecker before your emails come out to those new prospects. We want you to feel secure while exporting contacts and sending emails, and that’s why we blocked the possibility of exporting contacts to running campaigns.

If you want to add some contacts to a campaign that is currently running, go to Woodpecker and pause it before the export. After you’ve pushed your contacts, check in Woodpecker if all the data you need for your emails have been properly imported. Edit the prospects’ data, if necessary, preview and resume the campaign.

Here’s a short video where you can see the export process presented by Bryan. Check this out for some visual quidance.
