I've tried almost every single email (outreach) tool that you can find on the Internet. And I would like to start with a question:

How the hell did sending emails become so freaking expensive?!!

You want to send out more than XYZ emails per month? BOOM!, 300 bucks. You want to automatically send a follow up? BOOM!, $199 per user per month. And I could go on and on. So @Spaceship we were eagerly waiting for someone to come up with an affordable/reasonably priced solution. And below you can find the best tools we've found (so far).


1. SENDY — Send newsletters 100x cheaper

Sendy is very likely the cheapest and easiest email solution you can find online. All you need to do is set it up on your web server and you are good to go. It costs $59 per domain license (one-time fee), and you can send as many emails as you want.

PROs
- one-time fee
- easy to set up
- no limitations

CONs
- basic analytics
- no additional features


2. Connector (from ContentMarketer.io) — Send Emails with Confidence! Proven Email Templates, Mail Merge Tracking, Scheduling & Follow Up Sequences

I am a big fan of the “Connector” tool Sujan and Colin have built for outreach. It's simple, easy to understand, + offers analytics and automated follow ups. We use this tool internally at Spaceship, and we very happy with it.

PROs
- very affordable (at $9/mo)
- automated follow ups
- basic campaign analytics
- GMAIL connection

CONs
- limit of 500 emails per day


3. Replyapp.io — Email Prospecting and Sales Automation

Replyapp is very likely the best tool for outreach. It's user friendly and offers many valuable features. Few weeks ago, Lee told me that they are working on a new version. So I cannot wait to see it :) If you want to try out Replyapp — you can use the following code to get a friendly discount: SPACEFIRST3M30OFF

PROs
- bunch of great features
- Gmail + SMTP connection


I am curious to hear from you — which outreach tools do you use? Have we missed any great tool(s)?
