    Today’s episode is brought to you by Apollo.io. 
    If you share a pipeline goal with your sales team, then you care about the deliverability rate of your team’s outbound emails. 

    No email visibility means no meetings. 

    This is the “silent nightmare” for marketers. You often don’t even know this is happening. 

    And the most common cause of it? It’s actually an easy one to fix: you’re not using the right tool. 

    That’s why 100s of marketers at companies like Mutiny are switching to Apollo.io. Apollo has every tool you need to power your entire outbound and inbound motions (yes that’s right, I said inbound emails too - you can see how Ashby does it on Apollo’s site).

    Marketers using Apollo have seen email deliverability jump from 62% to 98% after making the switch... 98%! That means more replies, more meetings, and of course, more pipeline.

    Want to see what type of results you can get? Head over to apollo.io/exitfive and start using it completely for free. You don't even need a credit card to get started.
