Drift

Drift makes it easy for us to feed the right information to the right people based on their intent, and it makes the whole experience simple and fast. It’s helped deliver the competitive advantage and brand experience we were striving for. If you’re not ready to innovate on the way you approach marketing, sales, and customer experience then it may not be for you.

MobileMonkey

MobileMonkey would be great if you have a really strong social media presence and want to capitalize on people visiting your pages. It's great if you have a tech friendly audience who is not afraid to talk to a chatbot. If you have an audience where they might be uncomfortable or more of an "uptight" audience then it might not be fore you. It's also not great for heavy B2B if your focus is on high level targets as they're likely not logged in to Facebook at work. B2C is probably the best function for MobileMonkey, although it could be used to help field support messages.

Pros

Drift

  • Chatbot builder. The new builder Drift recently came out with is very user-friendly and intuitive.
  • Integrations. We integrate Drift with Salesforce and Hubspot. After a lot of testing and mini failures, we finally figured it out and everything works seamlessly.
  • Content. Drift's marketing is the best out there, and I always draw inspiration from their "human" approach to our marketing content. As a customer, I am kept up to date on product releases as well as industry leader knowledge reports to keep our company's marketing relevant, helpful, and engaging.

Cons

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.

MobileMonkey

  • Terrible marketing ethics!
  • 6am phone calls to my cell trying to up-sell me
  • Spam galore! I have replied more than 5 times to be unsubscribed, yet they still spam me

MobileMonkey support is second to none when you have a paid plan. Always willing to help and make your life a lot easier when you're facing any technical difficulties or frustrations. When I was on the free plan, I found plenty of useful resources that helped me solve my problems, and I could still contact support for help.

Alternatives Considered

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.

MobileMonkey

MobileMonkey is a lot less expensive than both Olark and Drift. We chose MobileMonkey because we were hoping the familiar interface and integration between social and the website would drive more interest which would lead to conversion and revenue. It's more of a chatbot than Intercom in that Intercom is really good for customer support, but MM is a nice way to get people interested by sharing high level data through a conversation that doesn't require a real person. However, Olark, Drift, and Intercom all integrate with the major CRMs and marketing automation platforms which gives them a real edge over MobileMonkey at this time.

Return on Investment

Drift

  • Drift has allowed us to capture more MQLs since we started using it.
  • Drift has increased customer satisfaction with our services since it enabled real-time support and communication with them.
  • Drift has allowed us to spend less time supporting users or replying to user questions, and spend more time on critical business issues, while maintaining the same level of support for our customers.

MobileMonkey

  • It has become a quick sunk-cost due to the amount of time I had to spend ignoring/blocking their unsolicited marketing/communication attempts.
