Is there a lightweight alternative to Intercom for quick, easy user feedback?

While I'd love to use Intercom, it's too expensive for my needs right now. So I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for a cheaper alternative for easily collecting feedback. Something that has minimal hurdles for users to jump over.

    ProProfs Chat is a cheaper alternative to Intercom and having all the functionality of Intercom. It also has forever free plan too. It is worth trying that is why I would recommend you try ProProfs Chat. It has the same features and even more than Intercom that will help in not only capture useful customer feedback but also qualified leads for the business.

    Henry, I see what you are pointing at. I’ve seen a lot of business owners switching from Intercom because at one point it becomes an expensive deal. That’s why a lot of them search for its counter-parts that are cheap and offer the same benefits (if not all). Keeping your search in mind, I’d say give ProProfs Chat a try. It’s way easy to use and even supports a forever free plan. Plus, collecting feedback becomes a piece of cake with this live chat tool. Here have a detailed comparison between both: https://www.proprofs.com/chat/in...

    LiveChat is a bit cheaper solution with clearer pricing. What's more, it's possible to adjust its functionality to your particular needs – you can link specific communication channels or pair it with the software that you actually use.

    A scalable way to talk to your customers

    Pulkit AgrawalCEO @trychameleon for user onboarding · Written
    Drift is similar to Intercom but probably a little more for sales / growth (their lead gen bot is great). Other options include Hotjar and oLark. I'd recommend you check out the Segment catalogue for this, as that contains a lot of startup-relevant tools in this space: https://segment.com/catalog
