Below the video, you can find more tools and links of the software that I recommend.
Best for Domain/Mailbox Warmup and Email Sequencer
Use Smartlead to send cold emails that land in the inbox at scale.
You can connect unlimited auto-rotating email accounts and use the best-in-class AI warm-up to stay out of spam.
You can also manage all replies from a universal inbox, so no need to log into multiple inboxes individually.
Best for Data and Email Addresses
Apollo.io provides a foundation for end-to-end sales strategies by providing a data platform for built-in integrations.
It’s robust, yet simple to use. I’ve used it for dozens of campaigns and it has a great integration with Salesforce and other CRM’s.
In addition, the Chrome extension allows you to find prospects and either add them to a list or enrol them in a sequence.
Once set up properly, you can also include custom fields which allow you to personalise the outreach to each prospect.
Best for CRM
Pipedrive is a deal-driven customer relationship management CRM solution that also works as an account-management tool with the ability to assist with marketing and the entire sales process.
Pipedrive’s proactive nature automatically tracks and organizes calls and emails and synchronizes schedules across devices.
One capability that might be especially attractive is Pipedrive’s ability to visualize the sales process from start to finish.
This can improve both efficiency and cut through a lot of second-guessing within teams, which is often the main reason CRM implementations fail.
I’ve seen Pipedrive being adopted quicker and more consistently by sales people than other CRMs.
Best for Productivity, Automation and List Management
I use Textblaze to save canned responses / snippets of text that I can insert into emails or social media messages saving a lot of time each day.
Example snippets I have set up:
- When a prospect is running late for a video call
- When a prospect noshows
- A reply to an introduction
- To book a meeting using a meeting link
