Doing outreach on the native Twitter app can feel like a drag sometimes. Since Twitter doesn’t have a feature that automates prospecting, you’re limited to doing painstaking research one Twitter account at a time. Thankfully, a new Twitter outreach tool, Rocketbird.io, addresses this pain point.
Rocketbird helps you automate your outreach. Among many other features, you can use it to build huge prospect lists at the push of a button. And managing the prospects you do find is a piece of cake.
Our Rocketbird.io review aims to reveal how this software can help your Twitter outreach campaigns and whether it’s worth the Dollar investment.
Features and Benefits
Rocketbird.io has many cool features which offer a ton of benefits. The most prominent ones include the following:
Automation is at the core of everything Rocketbird.io does: before, you’d have to go through a Twitter user’s follower list to search for potential leads and add each follower to a separate spreadsheet.
Now, with Rocketbird.io, the process goes like so:
- Enter the Twitter user’s handle into a field.
- Give Rocketbird.io some keywords that best describe the leads you want to target from among the Twitter user’s followers.
- Hit the “enter” key.
Instantly, Rocketbird.io will return a list of leads you can contact, saving you time and energy.
And the best part of this feature is you know most of the leads are appropriate for your campaign. That’s because, unlike similar Twitter outreach tools (like Colddm.me), the keywords you enter help filter out prospects.
So instead of finding all the “Participants of a Tweet” or “Followers of a User,” you can narrow your results down to participants and followers with the keywords you entered in their bios, who have a specific number of followers, etc.
Automated and Sequential Direct Messages
Of course, getting a list of prospects is only half the battle: you need to contact them and follow up. Fortunately, Rocketbird.io makes the task straightforward. You can send one-off direct messages to hundreds of prospects with the click of a button.
When the software returns the list of leads, you can create a sequential automated campaign that targets every lead from one convenient place. Doing direct messaging this way beats the old way of copying and pasting a generic message into hundreds of Twitter users’ DMs one handle at a time.
Better yet, Rocketbird’s campaigns support sequential messaging, meaning you can shoot contacted leads a follow-up message after initial contact. For example, if your first message gets a favorable reply, you can program the software to send a follow-up response that paves the way for a more personal tête-à-tête.
Direct Messaging Management
When you launch your outreach campaign, you need a way to keep track of the responses, so you can follow up where necessary. Rocketbird.io has you covered in this area as well. You can tag contacted leads as “Interested” or “Not Interested” to differentiate cold leads from warm ones.
In addition, Rocketbird.io automatically tags leads as “Replied” when they respond to your message. The tool makes it easy to filter your list to see who has or hasn’t replied to your messages. And when you get an unfavorable response, or the lead’s DM is closed, you can tag them as “Skipped” so you don’t send additional messages to them.
User Experience and Ease of Use
Rocketbird.io offers an intuitive user experience. When you log in, you’re greeted by an uncluttered, intuitive, and navigable user interface. You can access all its features on a menu bar to the left of your screen, and clicking each of the four tabs (Dashboard, Leads, Campaigns, Smartbox) presents you with new information on the right.
Regarding the software’s ease of use, it’s straightforward to set up. Click on the tab with the functionality you want, enter data into the appropriate fields, and you’re good to go. As advertised, you can “find your target audience in minutes,” and launching campaigns is similarly straightforward.
As the software is still new, you’re bound to encounter bugs and other issues. The Rocketbird team is always ready to help and will respond to your queries as quickly as possible. To that end, you can contact the team at [email protected].
Performance and Effectiveness
Rocketbird.io is pretty good at doing what it’s built for (finding and contacting leads at scale). While there’s no guarantee you’ll get a reply from the leads you find, you’re likely to see better Twitter outreach results and engagement than if you did it manually.
We didn’t encounter any performance issues per se, but we can’t guarantee you won’t since the software is still new. If there was any drawback we saw with this software, it’s that the “Has Profile Picture” seems slightly irrelevant. But that’s a minor quibble.
Pricing and Value for Money
Rocketbird.io has two plans:
Standard Plan: costs $31 per month. You can send 100 direct messages a day and store 3,000 leads. Also, you get unlimited campaigns and live chat support.
Growth Plan: costs $81 per month. You can send 200 direct messages a day and store 7,500 leads. Also, you get unlimited campaigns, access to the lead scraper, and priority live chat support, and you can manage your DMs with the smart box feature.
Compared to competing Twitter outreach tools like Colddm.me (whose most expensive plan is $15 per month), Rocketbird.io is a little on the expensive side.
Still, its features make up for the price. We think it offers value for money. There aren’t many tools like it that address the problem it does. If you’re still not convinced, consider trying Rocketbird.io free here.
With Rocketbird.io in your corner, you can prospect for leads on Twitter with incredible efficiency. Features like its automatic prospecting, sequential DMs, and DM management make it a tool you wouldn’t want to pass up. We highly recommend trying it out for yourself. In our book, Rocketbird.io is worth every penny.
