What is your favorite marketing automation software? 🤖

I'm looking for all the available alternatives out there. The requirements are that it has to be relatively cost-effective, be able to track (or integrate with software that tracks) website visits, and offer more than one ways of communication (e.g. email, chat widget).

    Go for the real thing. You won't regret it. I wrote a post here about what makes the Intercom product so great:

    I'm a huge Intercom fan. We've been using it at Product Hunt for over a year and now I can't imagine life without it. You can use it for all sorts of marketing purposes (email campaigns, "chat blasts", data analysis, etc) but also for customer service. I think it'd suit your purposes perfectly!

    Intercom is great! Gives you great insights into who your customers are customers, and so allows to bring them the best value.

      Intercom is amazing our website started generating 20% more leads through their webchat, and support features, and even our local company was able to generate real sales consultant appointments from Intercom. If you are a service based business you cannot go without Intercom!

      The whole site reads like it was translated to English through a Fiverr coupon. I still don't understand the service offering. It’s like they’re so wrapped-up in their own internal process to realize that visitors aren’t speaking their same language. (figuratively and literally)

    HubSpot is a great marketing automation tool that allows us to implement, execute and track campaigns. Leveraging Hubspot to managing everything from landing pages and click through actions, you can really get a lot out of this tool.

      I applied for the program through Start-Up Chile accelerator for my startup.

      It is a bad product, it lacks of quality, features and it is expensive.

      You are attached to 12 month contract per agent, if you need 5 agents one month and 2 the next, you have to keep paying for the 5 agents the whole year.

      You can not cancel hubspot account, now we are attached to a 12month contract per agent without any advert.

      Keep away from hubspot for startups, this is more a SCAM than a support program.

      I use Hubspot as part of my day to day routine.

      It's an awesome tool for sales and marketers (specially for startups).

      The problem is that when your team grows it becomes quickly very expensive and non competitive compared to using zappier and different other tools.

    I love Marketo for being versatile and proposing solutions or products for basically any marketing automation needs. Also, their resources library is very useful ( blog, webinars, community, etc.) especially if you are just starting with automation.
