- Go for the real thing. You won't regret it. I wrote a post here about what makes the Intercom product so great: https://blog.salesflare.com/how-...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!
A great application to automate engagement with your visitors, focusing on personal approach towards your customers
We use Intercom as our primary communication tool with our SaaS users from Day 1 and have scaled with them since.
- Retainly, Which helps in more lead generation, Lead conversion, and customer retention. It has a powerful tracking script that can automatically track all your signups, purchases, or subscriptions and keep syncing the information. Retainly then can track your customer events and automatically send campaigns to ensure increased transactional revenue from your customers. Chatterbox, live chat with your customers, right from your slack. All chat leads stored in a Dynamic segment which will allow you to retarget and engage them for conversion. Notif. Notif creates a social Fomo by rapidly displaying your genuine signups, purchases and subscriptions to your website visitors, compelling them to sign up with your service too. It is proven that Notif increases your website conversions by at least 20 times. Check out Retainly to understand more.
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)
I cancelled the free account because I really didn't understand how it works
- 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.
