Regardless of the type of business you run, email still remains one of the most if not most effective outreach channels. There are so many new social media channels popping up all the time, but for a B2B business, email is unmatched in terms of reply and success rates.
However, as with anything that gives out the most fulfilling rewards, email outreach comes with its unique challenges as well to make a campaign as effective as it can be. A badly planned and executed email outreach campaign can do more harm than good for your business.
The biggest challenge to do an outreach email campaign is to find the right emails to target your prospects. As obvious as it sounds, this step along with the right copy forms the core of the campaign.
There are quite a few SaaS tools that can help you in finding the right and verified email addresses of your prospects. Hunter, FindThatLead, Cold CRM, are some of the well-known and established options.
Tomba is one such tool that looks to be quite good on the initial impressions. How good is it and how it compares to the likes of Hunter? Let's find out in this review.
User Interface & Features
Once the initial sign-up is done, the main dashboard is simple and intuitive with minimal navigation elements.
You can start a search by simply entering a domain and Tomba gives the results segregated as Generic and Personal emails. The UI has a lot of resemblance to Hunter in the minimalistic look and navigation.
If not for the domain, alternatively, you can enter the name of your prospect along with the company domain if you want to do a search for a specific person.
When it comes to the quality of the leads you get, I ran a few searches and compared them with Hunter. The results were pretty good and left me pleasantly surprised with the numbers I got.
You get a confidence score for all the emails and you get an additional tick if the email is verified.
You can also do a bulk search where you can upload a list of domains or names & companies to get the results.
Within Tomba, you can also add specific lists and also add leads to each list. With the built-in integrations, you can have all the lists synced.
The data you get in Tomba is updated periodically to prevent any outdated information that might lead to higher bounce rates.
Overall, the UI is very polished, easy to navigate, and quite impressive.
Tomba integrates natively with the following tools,
Although it is nice to see a few tools integrate natively, many other CRM's and cold emailing tools have to be added along with Zapier integration as well.
In addition to the free plan, there are 4 paid plans namely, Starter, Pro, Growth, and Enterprise ranging from $39 to $389 per month.
The free plan is quite generous that allows for up to 50 searches and 100 email verifications per month. Quite understandably, you cant do bulk search or bulk export in the free plan.
The main difference between the paid plans are the number of email searches & verifications, the number of API calls you can make and the number of team members you can add.
For a limited time, there is a Lifetime deal currently available for Tomba ranging from $49 to $249 paid one-time.
It is an incredible value for money considering the cost of other similar tools.
Live chat support is available on the website and the support documentation is quite good as well with articles covering all the features. However, it would be better to see some video tutorials included as well.
To wrap up, Tomba looks quite impressive with a good user interface and quality of data fetched.
Yes. it needs improvements on the number of native integrations available, and it would be nice to see a built-in campaigns feature so that you don't need to use an additional cold emailing tool, but the core of the product is good to be worked on and improved.
