Today’s CRM communications tools are a lot more granular and versatile than in times past. They allow companies to create optimized campaigns and address customers’ specific needs to win them over. Yet, among the various sales technologies, email still stands out as one of the most effective and affordable tools. A robust email strategy can help you connect with your target audience, nurture communication with prospects and move leads throughout the sales funnel using features like open and click tracking, sales templates and email automations.
Pipedrive’s features ensure you don’t drop the ball on your next big sale. They allow you to stay in contact with your prospects, engage with them better, build trust and brand awareness and initiate contact with leads at the perfect time for them to proceed and not a minute too early.

Your contacts are at the core of your customer communication process. Each represents an opportunity that you need to tend to and follow up with to grow your business and close more sales. Pipedrive keeps your contacts organized by dividing them into “people” and “organizations” categories. Once added, you can link your contact to deals they’re associated with.
Pipedrive also lets you look at the bigger picture by presenting a visual history of all your calls, emails and activities with any particular contact or deal, making it even easier to check last conversations before following up.

Being affordable, accessible and quick makes email most salespeople’s channel of choice. Still, to deliver results, an email needs to be targeted, engaging and personalized. A CRM must, therefore, offer you features to help you zero in on the hottest leads, collaborate with your sales team and engage better and quicker with different target groups.
Pipedrive’s email inbox, for example, includes some nifty sales-dedicated features like
Email sync: Send and receive emails from your work or Pipedrive inbox and see up-to-date information in both, or start with Smart Email BCC to sync emails one at a time.
Email templates: Send more emails in less time while maintaining your personal touch. Choose from ready-made templates, or create your own, then auto-populate them with infos from your contact.
Create email distribution groups to send emails to groups of up to 100 contacts at once
Working with customers in different time zones? Send emails during your off-hours without connecting to work.
Fully sync your Gmail, Outlook, or company email to send and receive emails directly from within Pipedrive
Get notified when a prospect opens your email or clicks on any link you’ve sent them
You’ve engaged with your lead and are ready to set up a call with them. While you can always send a message asking “When’s a good time for you to schedule a call,” you may very well not get a reply. Then, there’s the scheduling part. Scheduling a time that fits both parties might cost you valuable time, energy and, the worst part, risk your sale.
With Pipedrive, you can set up meetings in one take by sharing your availability and letting your invitee book a time that works for you both. Simply set your availability, share a link and invite them to book meetings that automatically sync to your calendar. You can also automatically set up video calls for scheduled meetings via Zoom, Microsoft Teams, or Google Meet.
Calling your prospect is the moment of truth. Now is your time to shine and make it work! At this critical stage, it’s important to have easy access to data and record the call.
With Pipedrive’s Caller, you can make sales calls directly from the web for fast call tracking, recording and insights. Simply connect your phone number, then click on a contact’s number in Pipedrive to call them. Hands-free calling means you can take notes, check details and talk simultaneously. Pipedrive automatically logs your calls as completed activities under deals, so you can see exactly when a prospect was contacted. You can also double-check call recordings saved under deals from previous conversations and download them as audio files if enabled by an admin.
What if you could save even more time on customer communication with an add-on that expedites your document processes? Say, speed-up document creation time by 50% and quote creation by 30%?
