Why do you need email tracking in Gmail?

Email tracking is heavily used these days by both sales and marketing teams as it helps them learn what content is likely to appeal to their customers and engage them in a conversation.

Email tracking features in Gmail

While Gmail itself doesn't have any native email tracking features in it, there's a number of add-ons and extensions available on Chrome Web Store that provide email tracking functionality. NetHunt CRM is one of the 3rd party applications that integrates tightly with Gmail and upgrades it with simple, yet powerful CRM features. Email open tracking and link tracking are just some of the capabilities available to NetHunt users for more efficient sales and marketing campaigns.
While sending regular emails in Gmail, NetHunt users are able to track when and how may times their emails were viewed by the recipient. And if they have links included in their email message, they can also track if the link was clicked.
Bulk email campaigns provide more tracking opportunities in addition to open and click tracking — bounce rate and reply rate.

Email tracking is software that works in the background and notifies the sender of an email being opened or links being clicked. Most often, it works by placing an invisible pixel in the email body that is used to track the activity on each email. Here're the three steps you need to make to start tracking your emails:

  1. Install an email tracking app.
    You can use a simple email tracking app. Normally, however, teams use email tracking as a part of their sales and marketing activities. Therefore it is more efficient to use a solution like NetHunt — a full-featured CRM tool that automates sales processes and has email tracking capabilities included.
  2. Compose an email.
    If you're using Gmail as your primary email client, you can go ahead and compose a regular email just like you usually do. Before you hit the Send button, make sure that the open tracking and link tracking icons located next to it, are active.
  3. Receive notifications.
    Once your tracked email is sent, you will be getting real-time notifications whenever the recipient opens the message and clicks the link in it.

The three steps described above can well be used to start working with email tracking in NetHunt CRM. The one thing that has to be mentioned is that both open and link tracking are optional and you can switch them off either for a specific email or for good. With an option to switch it back on when you need it again, of course.
Also, link tracking does not necessarily has to work for all the links included in your email and can be switched off just for a few of them.
Lastly, once you start working with bulk email campaigns in NetHunt CRM, you will also see bounce rates and reply rates in addition to the open and click rates that you already got used to.
