Prospect list building is a crucial part of the outbound sales process. The first step is defining your ideal customer profile (ICP). But as soon as you’ve done that, you actually need to find the right accounts, people and their contact details. Here’s a tool stack for step two.

Today, I have exciting news for you all. A lot of you have been asking for a feature that would allow you to better manage your campaigns. And today, we’re taking the feature from beta. What is the feature I’m talking about? It’s an option to organize your campaigns in folders.
We tend to think about email statistics just from a business perspective. Obviously, we want a 100% open rate and no fewer replies. That would be amazing, wouldn’t it?

You put a lot of hard work into preparing your cold email campaign, yet you get poor results. Hardly anyone opens your emails or very few people reply. You start wondering if your efforts actually make any sense. Sounds familiar? Don’t give up just yet, though. I have some solutions to the most common cold email problems you may face.
You have to know this. Especially if you do email outreach. Each host has its own email sending limits. The limits may be daily, hourly, and sometimes also per minute. If you’re sending cold email campaigns without being aware of your email provider’s limits, your email account may get blocked before you know it. In this blog post, you will find information about sending limits of popular email service providers including Gmail, Office 365, GoDaddy and more.
You set up a cold email campaign and everything seems to run smoothly until you have a look at the statistics and notice a very high bounce rate. This may be a sign that you got blacklisted. First of all – don’t panic. Provided you landed on a blacklist unintentionally, it’s not such a big deal to get yourself off it. What costs much more effort, though, is regaining good sending reputation afterward. But first let me explain to you how blacklists work, why you landed on one and what you can do to get your IP removed from it.
It’s about time for another prospecting tool to be reviewed. I was approached by eGrabber’s team who proposed to me that they would do a demo of their tool, Management-Finder, to see how it works and how a prospecting team can use it.

I spoke to Clinton Rozario and his colleagues at eGrabber. Let’s find out more about the tool.
