We hope this helps...

If you’re considering what email tools you should be using to spare your time and improve what you're doing, there's a lot of options. 

From regular old manual emails and task management to industry specific Gmail plugins for sales and marketing. There are dozens of alternatives out there that promise they’ll help you deliver better results inside your inbox.

We want to make your decision as easy as possible, so we’ve put together some info that’ll help you decide which option is best for you.

Below, you’ll find details on the differences between ReplyUp, Mixmax, Yesware, Toutapp, Right Inbox, Followup.cc, Boomerang, and Rebump, including features, customer experience, pricing and thoughts from current awesome customers who have made the switch.

 

1) We're simple

Naturally, following up on emails manually seems the simplest option. It's what you've been doing for years, and it's what you know best. 

The problem that many teams have is that they're often rewriting the same content over and over and loosing track of what emails need chasing up. 

Without a built-in ability to organize your email follow-ups, it's hard to keep track of what emails need following-up on and what insights you can get from the emails you've already sent. Following up starts to slip through the cracks. 

On the other end, enterprise solutions such as Yesware, Toutapp and Mixmax offer tons of features. Whilst certain feature mixes can be useful for certain customers, generally bloated tools such as the above do not make for a simple solution. 

In fact, we started ReplyUp precisely because we were tired of having to used overly complex solutions for simple follow-up tasks. 

We built ReplyUp to do two things as simply as possible. Firstly, operate directly inside your Gmail so you can send a flow of emails that would completely replicate your process (should you be doing it manually!) and secondly to do exactly the same but in volume. e.g. a big list of people to send to.

We've made it for everyone who wants to send friendly email follow-ups directly inside Gmail or sending in bulk.

You’ll get awesome core features like simple unlimited email follow-up templates, personalizing fields directly inside Gmail, sending follow-up sequences one-by-one or in bulk and complete email tracking, without having to navigate a maze of features you don’t need.

 

2) We're personal

You love your customers. But as your work grows and your spare time drops, that's when a lot of people turn to automating whatever tasks they can. That's also when a lot of businesses start to get things wrong.

Have you every received an incoherent email or corporate template that just didn't work? That's where ReplyUp works. It's our little secret, that ReplyUp does all the automated chasing and follow-ups for you in a personalized way. You'll never have to try to dig through previous emails to chase again.

3) We're productive

When email tools are complicated, it can add hours of wasted time to get stuff done. Multiply that by two, three, four or more of the team, and that’s a lot of lost productivity. 

As a small business, we understand how devastating that can be. That’s why we kept things incredibly simple.

Automatically send follow-up emails

Send customized follow-ups directly from inside Gmail.Select a follow-up and ReplyUp will continue to send follow-up emails automatically for you until answered.

Add custom fields in real-time, just before you press Send. ReplyUp will add these to all future follow-up emails, so you don’t have to.

Create follow-up templates

Create personalized email follow-ups to use over and over again. Whether you're in a sales team prospecting or chasing invoices in finance dept., ReplyUp is a super-useful tool to follow-up in one click.

Track and auto-pause your emails

Track each email follow-up; who’s read your email, if they've been forwarded, delivered, clicked, opened and response rates. 

ReplyUp does the thinking so you don't have to, automatically pausing a follow-up if an email is answered. Until then, it's operating on autopilot for you. You can also schedule your follow-ups for later.

Send bulk email follow-ups

Are you struggling to find a way to send email follow-ups in bulk? 

Upload a CSV of contacts and ReplyUp will send follow-up emails on your behalf. Mostly used for power users who have large marketing campaigns to send to. You can connect multiple Gmail accounts to increase your sending. 

4) We're affordable.

We believe that small business software should be affordable for small businesses. And we get it, doing it manually is free (that's a great price!). But we belive the value of ReplyUp far outweights any cost.
