Likelihood to Recommend

ClearSlide

ClearSlide is quite easy to use and effective when presenting information and sharing screen. It's also easy for the prospect to access your site; they just click on a link. If an inside sales manager was looking to find out where his/her team might be losing prospects, Clearslide would be a great choice because the analytics show exactly how engaged a prospect is and at what point they start to lose interest. There is a monthly cost/annual contract involved to Clearslide, so for a startup that is very cost-conscious it might be best to investigate free conference/screenshare options, but the case could be made that the analytics will earn back the fee.

SalesLoft

I've been recommending SalesLoft for each of the startups I've worked at or have consulted for. It is a great tool for sales teams. And even for customer success teams as well as Accounts Management teams. I recommend that it be used alongside LinkedIn Sales Navigator and to also leverage the additional addons like CrystalKnows as well. It should be used to help with Social Selling in Linkedin (sharing articles via Owler) and also for understanding customers with CrystalKnows.

Pros

ClearSlide

  • CS easily loads in any web browser for client-facing meetings, which is awesome. No longer having to rely on an application of plug-in loading to present slides or do a screen share makes things simple for our teams and clients.
  • CS Outlook Plugin is very handy. Being able to share links to collateral from an existing email window pane has been incredibly helpful. This feature is a serious improvement from the earlier version of CS where you could only create links to collateral via their browser site.
  • The tracking capabilities that CS has embedded with linked collateral have been helpful in our client engagement strategy as an organization. Seeing what a client has viewed and for how long helps us know what they care about. Also, if they forward or share the information, we can also track that engagement.

  • Cadence set up, automation, and workflow: It is easy to set up a personal or a Team cadence for a particular campaign or persona message. Steps can be automated with handy options to pick when automated emails will be sent, when contacts will be taken out of the cadence (if they reply or their email bounces) and so on.
  • Advanced automation rules allow you to trigger Cadence actions based on changes to other data fields, such as a particular Salesforce contact field. We use this to automatically add contacts to a cadence when a specific field in Salesforce is changed (a picklist of potential cadence options).
  • Add on benefits like integration to Crystal to help you know what type of language to use with your target contact, Owler for news and insights on companies you're reaching out to, and a pretty good account management/support team.

Cons

ClearSlide

  • I don't love the conference line. The recording message at the beginning is particularly annoying.
  • I also wish it were easier to share multiple links quicker. It's somewhat of a cumbersome process.
  • It can occasionally be challenging to find the right materials to share at the moment quick enough.

  • Tracking of emails. The location and device in which the prospect is, is not always accurate. It is not a huge deal and does not impact the bottom line for us but would be a nice to have.
  • SalesLoft launches a lot of new features. It is sometimes difficult to keep up with all of them.
  • Allow more than 1,000 emails to be sent per day per account and also more than 500 leads imported at one time would be helpful.

ClearSlide is embedded in our culture and in our organization. The sales and marketing teams use ClearSlide on a daily basis to share information and presentations as well as communicate "what is working." Our leadership uses the analytics to provide improved feedback and coaching regarding bottlenecks our representatives are experiencing.

The renewal really depends on who the client is. SalesLoft works for some clients better than others.

Its easy to use from a presenter's perspective. Its web based so anyone who can navigate Facebook can open a live pitch or shared file. This makes it easy to give live demos, share files, and share screens with out downloading any software or installing java patches

SalesLoft is a fantastic product that will be extremely helpful to any Sales Rep looking to organize their information and stay one step ahead. While it has its shares of quirks and bugs it proves to be an awesome tool for anyone that is in the sales industry.

The ClearSlide implementation team took the time to make sure I got my log in info. They took the time to make sure I understood how to use all the functions of the platform and they took me through a mock presentation and gave me ample time to ask any and all questions before disconnecting.

Alternatives Considered

ClearSlide

ClearSlide stacks up to be as good as any of the aforementioned tools. We selected Clearslide because of its ease of use and implementation. It did not take our team too long to get acclimated with how ClearSlide works and how they would be using it, allowing them to generate more meetings and more revenue.

SalesLoft is a competitor to InsideSales.com. I love the native integrations InsideSales provides, but I more love the account based targeting that SalesLoft better supports. If you want a more direct integration where you can use automation features within Salesforce, InsideSales is much better. But if you need more automation and not caring if it's native or not in SFDC, SalesLoft is much better

This product ROCKS!!!! ClearSlide shortened my sales cycle by over 50% by enabling to jump right into a LIVE demo on an initial client call so I don't have to waste time scheduling a demo at later date. People are busy and finding a time to schedule a call can take days or weeks

Return on Investment

ClearSlide

  • Has helped us close more deals because of the easy "on the fly" screen share
  • Also, you get a notification when people view your information so having that, I have followed up shortly after and closed the deal
  • Helps my team with all external presentations

  • Employee Efficiency - this is huge for us. As I explained earlier, our team went from manually importing data into our CRM to being able to easily transfer a prospect into our CRM.
  • Qualifying Leads - since it uses Linkedin and Google to gather information, it is often very accurate when being compared to other lead generation sources.
  • Cost Effective - from a budget standpoint, it serves as a very affordable lead generation tool.
