Enter Chrome extension Yesware, an easy-to-use online tool geared toward salespeople, but it can be used by any small business professional.

Track your emails

It’s no wonder why Yesware is perfect for salespeople with this feature. Yesware allows you to track your emails—from it leaving your outbox and arriving at its end destination. “Yesware can detect when it is opened, who opened it, the reader’s location and even computer type.” Yesware will even compile a report for you to view whenever you want.

This particular feature will help you confirm and keep track of who is receiving and actually opening your messages. If it’s a sales pitch email, for instance, you will be one step closer to determining who is actually interested and who you can follow up with.

Yesware’s reports can be accessed by multiple users or even by your entire company. This will ensure that your clients or customers aren’t emailed multiple times for the same thing because there will always be an up-to-date report to review first.

Email templates

Whether you regularly send out similar emails or you hit the perfect note with yesterday’s email, you can save it as a template. Using Yesware to save email templates is a great way to save time, as you don’t have to go searching for it. It’s also great if you send many of the same emails, but you need to customize each one with the recipient’s name or personal information.

Because Yesware can be added onto your current Gmail account, its convenience enhances your Gmail experience and enables you to be more productive throughout your day.

    Both of those are awesome. I think I like the tracking notifications better with Right Inbox. But the polish on Yesware is amazing.

    Those posts prompted me to actually right another post (it has been a while)
