Apollo

Apollo is well suited in cases where automation is essential in your outreach. It sends out as many emails as you'd like daily and you literally don't have to spend any time on them. Another form of automation is the way it tracks your stats as well. We keep tallies daily of our activity and the reports do that for you, which is very helpful

HubSpot Sales Hub

If you have a large sales team the HubSpot professional suite at $800 dollars a month is well suited, it comes with a lot of functionalities that lets you automatize tasks and keep control of your leads and progression of each deal. For a small sales team, it is a lot harder because the cost for 3-4 people goes up. They should have an overall cost but it would be good if they had an individual cost for smaller companies that includes all features.

Pros

Apollo

  • Handling multi-step outreach sequences -> email -> phone call reminder -> LinkedIn addition -> follow up email -> leave voicemail -> break up email
  • Finding new accounts & contacts to reach out to
  • Having easy to understand reporting for how your messaging is converting into meetings

HubSpot Sales Hub

  • Provides a streamlined system for creating, sending, and tracking automated email campaigns to current customers as well as cold prospects. This is a huge benefit for my sales team in that we can have a one-stop-shop for prospect engagement management.
  • Playbooks in HubSpot Sales Hub has been a lifesaver by giving my sales team the step-by-step tools in order to present the best prospect discovery calls and demos. It's a simple process to follow but super effective!
  • One of the areas that Hubspot does incredibly well is they provide score rating for each and every prospect within our CRM. The score rating is based upon prospect engagement to email outreach allowing my sales team to prioritize cold/hot leads and to focus on the higher engaged prospects.
  • Another big benefit we've experienced is that HubSpot Sales Hub integrates with our CRM allowing a streamlined tech stack. This saves my sales team a lot of time managing both the CRM and HubSpot Sales Hub.

Cons

Apollo

  • Their customer service is just terrible. You get an assigned account manager but 9/10 times they wouldn't know what you wanted and/or how the product works or how to fix it. Vast majority of the time it was a canned response that made you question if they read the message, or if they read it and did not understand a word.
  • The software was relatively buggy and lacked features that were promised upon signup. They seem to have some large corporate clients and if you aren't one none of your bug submissions, feature requests, or concerns will be addressed.
  • Their growing quickly so they seem to be very understaffed which I believe caused many of the issues above.
  • The data, while good, can quickly run out if you're looking for specific types of leads. If you're looking for something generic like Managers at companies between 10-5000 people, you can pull leads all day every day. However if you're looking for a specific industry, specific title, and specific location - don't count on having an endless supply of leads (or even really enough to use month after month).

HubSpot Sales Hub

  • Search feature is horrible. When you have a prospect on the phone and you type in their name or company it isn't always visible. You have to use emails, otherwise all other searches are suspect and have to double and triple checked.... tough to do when talking to a prospect.
  • Deal cards need to be MORE customizable (last update aside). There needs to be control (more) on what is presented on the card. Also, the order in which the cards are visible should be customizable. Allow the organization to sequence.
  • The ability to create "online reports" dynamically. Simply allow me to create a report on needed criteria and then publish the report in a custom URL that I can share with non-HubSpot users. This can be used to share with my vendors, dealers, partners who I would never allow in my system but I want to provide visibility

HubSpot sales has allowed all of our teams company-wide to communicate and keep all of our information secure and organized. We are able to save time and money by using this platform, and we could not imagine turning back to the way things used to be done. We are so thankful for HubSpot Sales!

It's totally clean, consistent, and easy to use/understand. I love everything about this tool! From Gmail to being in the platform everything looks similar, is orange and easy to find, and very clear and user friendly. It's intuitive and hey, if my sales reps are using it it must be good and simple!

I received excellent support at any time I opened up a ticket. But I would add to it that the tool was very self-explanatory, so there wasn't much need for support. With Outreach, we have a closer relationship with our CSM because of the intricacy in things like SFDC task mapping.

Usually pretty responsible and friendly and have had my questions circled back on. However, they haven't been able to answer several of the more in-depth questions I have had, but those questions may have been way too nuanced and specific so I would give the benefit of the doubt.

It was not only SUPER easy to implement, we had some amazing support from HubSpot. They scheduled a call to go over each individual tool with our team and provided guidance and best practices plus answered any questions are new users had. It was wonderful and really helped them get started confidently

Alternatives Considered

Apollo

Apollo is a one-in-all sales prospecting solution that allows us to find contacts & send campaigns. So for small teams that fits the bill.And SDR teams do not need to manage multiple tools to do their prospecting.Apollo is easy to use & low on pricing compared to ZoomInfo.

HubSpot Sales Hub

kvCORE is provided by our brokerage. It is great, but more techie and complicated than I like. There are 10 videos on how to use it. They say the BEST CRM you can have is the ONE YOU USE. So, HubSpot [Sales Hub] allows me to use it without having to know anything different than using my Gmail. The dashboard and all the functions are simple, look familiar, and work the way you would expect them to.

Return on Investment

Apollo

  • We've seen a significant increase in outbound leads after using this tool (almost a 200% increase MoM).
  • Negative: This tool does take a considerable amount of time to learn how to use, and you likely won't see results if someone is only spending minimal time within the tool, so we have invested a bit in hiring people to manage this tool.

HubSpot Sales Hub

  • We are able to consistently hit our outreach goals every week of 160 emails per SDR and BD. Sending 160 emails used to take us about 20 hours / SDR / week, and now it takes about 5-7 hours / SDR / week, based on the Sales tools.
  • We've gotten to within 75% accuracy on our sales forecasts by analyzing our Hubspot reports, and better understanding the predictability of our revenue.
  • We have saved hundreds of hours in sales training by onboarding new SDRs and BDs using Hubspot's templates and sequences.
