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.
Sharing information as a team is an important part of working together. Having access to the same information and reports can streamline your professional interactions and make everyone a cohesive unit.
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.
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.
These templates can also be shared with every member on your team, so all of your outgoing emails have a unified front.
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. Yesware’s email features and shortcuts will put you back in control of your daily tasks and time management. Email is no longer just a tool you can use to communicate with others. You can now use it to also stay organized. And organization is often the first key to a healthy business.
