"Today, email is a "before Gated" and "after Gated" experience. I have a clear inbox again and I love seeing cold outreach turn into donations. Setup and maintenance are nothing, it's just a filter supplying bandwidth. I wish I had this 5 years ago."

"Gated saved my inbox. It felt like a never ending stream of emails, regardless of relevance. I'm now more productive, respond to emails faster, and even have the time to read a lot of that cold outreach. Everyone needs Gated."

"Gated has given me what all the smarts of Gmail tabs never could - the ability to sort incoming emails by expected vs. unexpected. I no longer let unexpected emails rule my time in any way. I tell them when I'll consider them. That feels empowering and it's given me the mental space to do more in my everyday work."

"As someone who's always chasing Inbox Zero - Gated helps me be less distracted throughout the day and stay focused on my work instead of archiving boring cold emails. As an ex-SDR, I really value quality outreach and it's pretty immediately clear who is and isn't paying attention to the emails they send as soon as Gated is in place."
