About the project
Send cold emails for free!
Completely free and open source project to fight against stagnation in your company, caused by the COVID-19 pandemic! Download, run and rock your sales!
Some time ago, I created a tool for my own use, which sent cold emails to potential customers. It served me basically for everyday work. Sending an email, then - when contact was promising - retrying via LinkedIn and exporting to CRM. I got many good relationships with other people because of that.
I worked on it, hoping that one day it would see a full-paid version and I will start making money on it.
Looking closely at the current situation on the world, I thought that such a tool could be perhaps useful to others. It is a pity that it is locked up. That’s why I decided to release it as an open-source solution!
Simple license, open code, absolutely free. 🔥🔥🔥
I hope it will be useful to someone ❤️

OSX / Linux Run the following command in your terminal to install the latest official Meteor release:

> npm install meteor -g
Meteor supports Windows 7/Windows Server 2008 R2 and up. The installer uses Chocolatey, which has its own requirements. Disabling antivirus (Windows Defender, etc.) will improve performance.

You will see the registration page. Provide your e-mail from which you will be sending messages, and your password to protect your data. SendGrid API key is optional when you register, but you will need to add it (in settings) before you will start sending e-mails. All data will be kept on your local machine, or if you upload it to your server, then they will be stored there.
- After registration and login, you will get access to all features of the system. You can send messages from CRM. Just add contacts or upload your CSV file. Then select contacts to whom you want to send an e-mail and create a new campaign.
This application is using the SendGrid SMTP server to send emails. All you need is to create an account on sendgrid.com, create an API key and paste it to the app. SendGrid is a Denver, Colorado-based customer communication platform for transactional and marketing email. The company was founded by Isaac Saldana, Jose Lopez, and Tim Jenkins in 2009, and incubated through the Techstars accelerator program. Now is a part of the Twilio company.
