I am going to start cold emails for my SaaS (social media management tool - https://socialbu.com).
Anyone doing cold emails for SaaS? Any success? How are you doing it?
I am also considering using Woodpecker for cold emails. Anyone using it?
I have tried to do so manually. It was very time consuming to send 40 emails, just straight up from my Gmail account. I got 1 paying customer out of it.
I built a system that was very successful in getting demos set up and then decided to make it into a full-fledged product. It's an end-to-end tool that finds leads and emails for you and then uses a multiarm bandit to find the best subject/message.
Check it out at https://midgardoutreach.com/
I'd be happy to answer any questions you might have.
It would also be nice if we can just get the leads from this service. I mean, it feels too much to do to switch the current cold mailing service/tool without any solid reason.
I hope this is not offensive, but I played around with your website and found it confusing. The fact that you don't mention any integrations and pricing up front left me kind of unhappy.
Thanks for taking a look! Our pricing is 15 cents per person contacted, which includes discovering the lead, finding their email, and then actually sending the message. You can upload a CSV to prevent double emailing.
I'd throw into the ring my own app https://webdef.com that finds the emails for you, then I use MailShake to send them :)
I too use Woodpecker, and I get up to 60% open rate for my email campaigns.
Also, before sending I make sure to verify my email list with AeroLeads.com to get a good response for my email campaign and also to avoid the bounce rate.
Why choose this over buffer?
Why would someone use Buffer over this?
While probably no big enough reason for existing Buffer customers to switch over, they haven't got 100% of their possible market.
That's right. I agree.
the question was posed to the founder and not to a random know-it-all.
I was adding to the discussion.
But someday, if at all possible, you should show us what you've built. :)

It's an online discussion board, not a personal Q&A with the founder. All replies are by default unsolicited.
I won't reply to your name calling and hate comments, but you're using this website wrong.
While Buffer has a stable presence which has been improved throughout the years, Buffer is usually enough if you need a simple solution.
SocialBu has many features which have their own value. SocialBu is geared toward more like an all-in-one social media automation platform.
I have planned features and tools for organic growth of social presence, for example.
Why choose this over buffer? Price can also be a reason or any of the feature which is not in Buffer. For example, SocialBu automations.
I am sendings right now the cold emails. I use Mauric for sending emails.
Until now the results are: 200 mails sent, 53% open rate, 5 compleate a firm (call to action)
Mautic is an open source software for sending email campaigns and more.
