What's the best alternative that won't break the bank?

I've seen drift, user engage, and crisp. They're either all too expensive ($400/mo+) or don't offer event driven segments.

    I know Intercom is more than just chat, but for our needs we found Zopim (by Zendesk) got the job done and was better in some regards for what we were looking for.

    If you're not about talking to your users but just getting feedback and research them individually with automation then Gotcha is for you. We don't wanted the chat interface but everything else, so this is Gotcha.

    If you’re looking for a cheaper alternative to Intercom that helps you access the same or even more features at the same time, then ProProfs Chat is worth the try. It even offers a free plan that supports a variety of features and allows operators to chat without a glitch.
