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

Skylead

There are many LinkedIn automation products available, from Chrome extensions to desktop applications, to cloud-based apps like Skylead, and I've used many of them. Skylead stands apart with a simple, intuitive interface that is easy for my clients to use, is very economical compared to others, and is focused on continual improvement and customer service.

Skylead

  • Convenient message inbox for responding to new leads.
  • Ability to integrate with CRMs and other 3rd party software for more automation.
  • Smart Sequences that use conditional logic to send LinkedIn messages as well as emails.
  • Customer service is very responsive and super helpful. They are a pleasure to work with.
  • Skylead is constantly improving and adding/updating features based on actual users' input via a feature request forum.

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).

Skylead

  • It would be nice to be able to add steps to a sequence in an existing campaign
  • The user hierarchy is a little confusing, in terms of placing my end-user clients under my master account—a little unintuitive
  • Similar to above, it would be nice to have an additional level of user access, for scenarios in which I have a client with multiple salespeople on the platform, each with their own login (as it is now, with access only to their own account), but also have a companywide admin account for a sales manager who has access to all of their accounts with one login (I think they are working on this feature).

Apollo 8.6
Based on 5 answers
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.

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.

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.
