Likelihood to Recommend

Conversica

  • Great at helping marketing and sales surface leads that might be interested in your product.
  • Great at working low level leads and see if there are opportunities within a large number of leads
  • Great at providing a more personal touch, ie it looks like it is coming from an actual person vs. a marketing-driven, standardized email.
  • Since you are allowing Conversica to do a lot of the manual work of emailing and working low level leads, it really helps free up work of your sales team which would otherwise cost more.

Drift

Drift does one thing really really well, chatbots. They are the best out there and way ahead of any of their competitors or other tech companies trying to simply "add-on" a chat tool. If you want to save time, reduce friction, and increase inbound traffic then get rid of forms and use Drift's chatbots. Drift is not good for email automation, at least in our company's experience, which is why we have HubSpot and Drift. Drift contact reports are slow to load, and I use Salesforce reports instead to report on Drift engagement and activity.

Pros

Conversica

  • Conversica does a good job of prospecting.
  • We love that they have a follow up feature that allows us to hold our staff accountable for reaching out to those who are interested in timely manner.
  • The dashboard in Conversica helps us to both navigate current conversations and leads easily, as well as view the progress of current and past conversations.

Drift

  • Inbound Lead generation, by automatically targeting prospects or qualified visitors and beginning a conversation with them.
  • User support system, by allowing visitors or app users to ask and get replies to specific product/service related questions they might have.
  • Lead nurturing, by sending automated email campaigns to users who are deemed as MQLs, but need a little extra push before they convert into SQLs.

Cons

Conversica

  • There are some parts of email templates that are not customizable. This makes it difficult to change sentence structure.
  • There are times when the AI assistant is reaching out to leads at the same time as one of our sales reps. Often this is because the salesperson didn't follow the proper process in turning the assistant off but it happens often enough that I wish the process was simplified.

Drift

  • The all vertical work flow is tough to visualize at times. It gets a bit messy.
  • Getting a fair distribution of leads to all of the reps has been a struggle.
  • It can be tough to test in a timely matter.

Tool is extremely powerful but comes with a heavy price tag. As long as we close more than 30 deals with year with Conversica's assistance it will be an easy choice to renew. If we don't we will have to figure out if these funds are best spent in other lead generation places.

We had a lot of pushback in the beginning from our sales staff. No one likes it when their weaker areas are pointed out and made public; nor do they like anyone/anything working "their" leads. However, once they saw that Conversica's AI was able to engage leads that were not responding to them, they quickly bought in and are happy to have it!

Implementation went very smooth. They did a nice job of handing off from sales to our support team. They also did well with Salesforce technical questions. There was some things we could not do ourselves and relied completely on the support rep. I didn't like that.

Alternatives Considered

Conversica

We do not see any competitors to Conversica, that offer the same or similar value proposition. We selected Conversica after experiencing disappointing ROIs over 7+ years at predecessor companies, with 90% of the vendors or solution providers out there, none of whom offer anything remotely close to Conversica's services.
Dirk Davis | TrustRadius Reviewer

Drift

Like I mentioned earlier, looking at Drift's UI and how it handles chat requests, it may not fare well as a dedicated support-chat system like Intercom and Zopim. Of course, their value prop is conversational marketing and lead gen through automatic bot workflows. They're trying to do too many things - like Email Sequences and Account Based Marketing for example. It would be great to see data in 12 months on how that experiment of theirs is helping the customers.

Return on Investment

Conversica

  • No lead gets left behind. Your agent doesn't get sick, take vacation or have any lapse in productivity.
  • Employee efficiency. Our teams can now focus on the great leads rather than getting overwhelmed with hundreds of contacts to follow up with.
David Da Silva | TrustRadius Reviewer

Drift

  • We've been better able to engage high-value accounts who are working on deals with us.
  • We've captured leads and been able to respond more quickly than we were with email-based forms.
  • We've received feedback from visitors that we couldn't have captured otherwise.
