    Have a look at Salesflare! Our software doesn't only track email opens, clicks and website visits. It also keeps all info about the related people automatically, their companies, etc.

    • I've used so many CRMs in the past, and have also looked at lots of others too. I was first attracted to Salesflare by the clean design and ease of use, but then was very impressed with just how powerful it is. It integrates so well with Gmail, that it just became a natural extension of how I work. Also the developers have been offering great support too. I highly recommend Salesflare.

    Polymail

    A simple, beautiful, and powerful email client for Mac

    It is an email app, but it does provide email tracking feature. It has the options to notify us EACH time the recipient opens the email. It's handy, I must say. It has a slight issue with synchronisation for Hotmail email account tho.

      Polymail picked up where Mailbox left us hanging. Implementing all the best features like "Read Later" scheduling and swipe actions β€” all housed in a clean design.

      Lately, I've noticed that Polymail is focusing more on biz dev and sales productivity with Polymail Pro. Understandable, with Sparrow and Mailbox being sold off and shut down. It's clear that email clients need to become profitable to survive. Unfortunately, I'm often pressured into features that I would never use via prompts and popups.

      I have used Polymail for a couple of years now. I still notice a few small bugs around rendering emails, and the Read Later queue can break down if you have several threads saved. Still hoping these issues will be fixed soon. πŸ™

      Overall the app still functions great and is my daily email client.

      I recently gave Polymail another try and it's indispensable now. Fast mailbox switching and read receipts are the killer features for me.

      Love Polymail for the Mac, but the iOS app doesn't do it for me. When I'm on my phone, Inbox is my go-to.

    Boomerang for Gmail

    The ultimate toolbox to control sending/receiving emails

    Boomerang's most known for resurfacing emails in your inbox based on your settings (e.g. if recipient hasn't responded in X days) but it also has email tracking functionality. Separately, if you want to block people from tracking you, install this. 😊

      I've been using Boomerang for much longer than a year, that's just the longest option this allows me to choose. I use it every day and am still probably underutilizing its capabilities. With it I have been able to be on top of follow ups, handle emails when top of mind but make sure they go out at a more optimal time for response, and with Inbox Pause... Catching up after OOO has been so much easier.

    If it's for your personal emails, I'd recommend Mailtrack.io. Totally free for individuals just looking for open receipts for their gmail/inbox.

      Michael J. KovisI built a Death Star with my mind.

      I'm shocked this product doesn't have more reviews. Have to offset the one negative review with a positive.

      I've been using Mailtrack for a year now. Prior to that I tested many different online tools to track email from Gmail and none worked well enough for. HubSpot's SideKick worked wonderfully, but then became more complex as they integrated it into their CRM.

      For me, I want simplicity. I want to know when my emails were read. That way it saves me the guess work of the email being delivered and read.

      I highly recommend using Mailtrack and purchasing the Pro version! It's worth the minimal cost.

      Too expensive in my opinion.

    Streak

    CRM in your inbox - for Gmail

    Pallav Agarwal
    Pallav AgarwalPassionate for technology and startups Β· Written
    This is an amazingly simple app. Its not obtrusive and works excellently. Not only does it have tracking but also 'send later' and a whole load of features that don't come in your way if you don't need them!

      I've used Streak for + 3 years and has always been my go to. I've set it up for clients for sales, project management and my personal inbox.

      Support is always willing to help and once you think you have mastered it, there is another hidden feature. (formulas in a CRM anyone?)

      Make sure to hold an onboarding session for your team and commit, it will pay off.

      Indispensable for managing hires and pipelines, been using it every day for months. However, it frequently takes a couple of seconds to load, and can take longer to retrieve old emails assigned to a box.

    Vocus.io

    Take your Gmail game to the next level

    Allan Caeg
    Allan CaegFounder, NorthStories.io Β· Written
    I've tried tons of these tools! Vocus.io is among the most accurate... even providing who exactly opened the email (e.g. if you CC'd multiple recipients). It also includes click tracking. As a nice touch, I like the tracking URL as it does not look suspicious to the receiver when they click and see something like "Sidekick" or some other brand in the URL

      I've been using HubSpot CRM since it was in Beta and it's really matured into a powerful CRM. I do pay for the Sales Pro tools which unlock a lot of power. There are some limitations however that make it a bad fit, you can read more about those in this review - https://www.techsmartboss.com/blog/top-things-you-should-know-about-the-limitations-of-hubspot-crm-with-workarounds/

      I applied for the program through Start-Up Chile accelerator for my startup.

      It is a bad product, it lacks of quality, features and it is expensive. That is ok, you have the choice to deliver bad quality as I have the choice to find other solution.

      But I can not cancel hubspot account, now we are attached to a 12month contract per agent without any advert. I'm watching how they take my money every month even when I am not using it, and i begging them to cancel my account, they refuse.

      Keep away from hubspot for startups, this is more a SCAM than a support program.
