Create trackable e-mail with Gmail webclient

In this post we are going to explain how to create a tracked e-mail using Gmail (webclient) and PastePixel. Note that we do not recommend this method as Gmail is not fully supported (yet), for example using the webclient you cannot add a trackable pixel.

You can either watch the video or follow the steps below.

Prerequisites

Before getting started, make sure you meet the following requirements:

  • Have a Gmail account
  • Have a registered PastePixel account

Steps

  1. Go to your PastePixel dashboard.
  2. Press the plus-button to create a new mail tracking.
  3. Make sure to add yourself to the blacklist to prevent tracking yourself.
  4. Enter the name of your mail tracking
  5. If you want to track certain URLs, add them under the Trackable URLs section.
  6. Go to Gmail and create a new e-mail (Compose).
  7. Enter the recipients, subject and body as you usually would.
  8. If you want to add the trackable URLs (from step 5) then you have to insert a link. Press the insert link button to do so, use the web addresses from PastePixel.
  9. Now you are ready to send your e-mail.
  10. Go to your dashboard and press the created mail tracking, there you’ll see all tracked data as soon as your recipients get tracked.
