Before the days of email tracking, you would send out emails and have no idea what happened to them. It was a complete mystery whether your messages were received, viewed, read, or forwarded to others. That’s why we created ToutApp, a simple way to track and manage your day-to-day sales emails.
Are Your Leads Browsing Your Website?
But there’s always more that can be measured. The people you’re emailing are visiting your corporate website, for instance, and clicking around to visit various pages. We knew it would be helpful for our users if they could see which leads were visiting their site. So we introduced Tout Site Tracking.
Track Site Visits in the Live Feed
If you're a ToutApp user, you're probably already addicted to our Live Feed that shows you when your emails are being viewed or clicked in real-time.
Now, with Tout Site Tracking, we'll show you when visits are happening in real-time as well. We’ll log repeat visits and show which pages your email recipients clicked through to. This helps shed insight on your leads’ behavior so you can craft the perfect follow up... or better yet, call the lead right then and there to help.
Are you using ToutApp?
Along with site tracking, we offer view and click tracking, templates, email analytics, CRM integration, and team collaboration features. Check out ToutApp today to get powerful insights into the actions of the people you’re emailing.

In our last blog entry, I think we established that Email is not going to die and in fact its only going to get better from here.
Email is evolving faster than you can imagine. And if you're going to play in this Email space, you better be able to keep up.
Just as quickly as Gmail released their new Compose screen, the ToutApp hackers quickly adapted and designed a user-interface that can be used with the new compose screen.
This format makes it easy for users to compose a message without having to draft it and search for another message. You can still write emails faster with Tout in the fresh new compose. To use the latest version of the ToutApp plugin just refresh your Gmail page.

We've been using Toutapp since the beginning of my tenure and couldn't be happier with the product and service it provides. We are able to track our emails and tailor them to convert better every time.
With ToutApp's analytics, we can usually pinpoint whether we need to change the subject line, parts of the body, or the email recipient list in general. We can email a group of recipients in minutes, even with slightly different copy using mail merge dynamic fields. With an emphasis on user data, Toutapp's tracking allows us to analyze data and react quickly and properly.
Every other week, we'll profile a different person who uses our app to improve their email productivity. If you would like to be featured in the future, you can apply here.
Email is not dead and its not going to die and in fact, its only going to get better from here.

Email Usage and Email Spend Continues to Grow
The latest report says there are 182+ billion emails sent every day (not counting spam), 72 of which are for business. Nearly $13 billion is spent yearly on maintaining Email Infrastructure alone. While the major corporations including Google, Microsoft and Yahoo still operate their Webmail businesses as a loss leader, multi-million dollar budgets still exist for putting money toward Microsoft Exchange, Outlook, and the plethora of Email productivity and automation tools, integrations and plugins that exist to standard platforms. On top of that, when you start to look at the amount of money being spent on Email marketing via leaders such as Responsys, Cheetahmail and Xacttarget, the significance of Emails becomes quite clear.
Email is a Strategic Loss Leader
Furthermore, with the recent acquisitions in the email space including Sparrow by Google, Pardot by ExactTarget, Context.io and OtherInbox by Return Path and the renewed push for a better Hotmail with Outlook.com, it has become clear that even as a loss leader business, Email is a strategic must-have platform to make other related properties profitable. In the case of Return Path, and with the general emergence of Big Data, it is also starting to become clear exactly how much the data in a person's Inbox is worth in raw dollars.
Email Competitors and Viability
Email is huge and while the likes of Chatter and Yammer (well maybe not Yammer, everyone knows thats just a ghost town) will continue to replace Email for internal collaboration and for collaboration across well established relationships (VIP Customers, Partners, Vendors, etc), Email will continue to grow as the primary ubiquitous and distributed communications network for the Internet.
Email will Evolve
However, it is important to note that Email is not going to stay static. Even in the last 6 months, we've started to see huge advances in Email related features.
Over here at ToutApp, we're leading the movement to build an insanely great business class email experience with things like email tracking, templates, scheduling, and analytics. But even beyond us, companies like MovableInk are doing amazing things with Dynamic Email for marketers, and Boomerang is finally making your calendar behave properly inside your Inbox.
In my next blog post, I'll outline the Top 5 Key Trends happening in the Email space that will help us truly evolve messaging on the Internet for the years to come.
