Does this sound familiar to you when trying to hit your sales targets? You had a great demo this morning, and the prospect asked you to send over a revised quote with the payment details.

You sent a follow up email before the call ended, and expected the lead or opportunity to get back to you with their credit card details within the next hour. It’s almost the end of the day, and you still haven’t heard back from them.

Your mind has been flooding with questions as soon as you hit “send”. Did the lead open my follow up up email? Are they still interested? Did they forward or share the sales email with anyone? Did they click on the link in my email? Should I follow up with them yet?

Fortunately, ContactMonkey’s Gmail read receipt and email tracking makes these questions 100% answerable. Here’s how.

The Gmail Read Receipt and Email Tracking

Normally, when we send emails we never know what happens to them once they leave our inbox. As a result, we never know how interested the recipient was in what we wrote. With a Gmail read receipt and email tracking you have unlimited tracking to collect data on:

  • When your emails get opened
  • How often they get opened
  • Where they get opened
  • If the links in your emails were clicked
