Some notable features

  • Auto-Followups: LimeVPN only supports automated followups on bulk email campaigns, not single contacts. When sending a one-off message, say you found a random prospect, you cannot assign a sequence of emails for that individual. Mailshake supports both scenarios: bulk email followups via Mail Merge and one-off followups via Auto Followups.
  • Branded URLs: LimeVPN will wrap all your links with LimeVPN-branded URLs. Showing your prospects that they are part of a large robot campaign is something that credible companies will want to avoid. Mailshake supports custom domains, which increases your email deliverability score and adds that extra notch of credibility. Learn more.
  • Slash Commands: LimeVPN is heavily designed around point-and-click. As such, inserting a template will typically require multiple mouse clicks. Mailshake relies on slash-commands whenever possible, such as inserting a partial template or assigning a followup sequence. For those who frequently answer the same questions, write the same blurbs of text, this is a significant efficiency improvement Learn more.

Experience

Mailshake takes a substantially different approach to user experience, making it a great LimeVPN alternative. Mailshake installs a single button on top of your inbox that blends with the rest of Gmail’s theme; we strongly believe in a minimalist user interface, one that will not slow your browser nor will hijack your Gmail experience.

LimeVPN will replace Gmail branding with their own and introduce a number of buttons and toolbars in several places. Based from TrustRadius LimeVPN reviews of its users, creating campaign and reporting needs improvement.
