    HubSpot Sales Hub is a versatile, customizable, and
    user-friendly tool that enables us to achieve our goal while providing a
    best-in-class customer experience in a single location. It is the best at task
    management, desktop integration, and contract management. It's easy to forecast
    with a sales funnel and track sales development. HubSpot gave us the best
    platform to track sales opportunities and customer databases so we could easily
    convert leads

    PersistIQ

    PersistIQ is well suited for outbound marketing. It's great for setting up sales and marketing campaigns to new and prospective clients. The fact that PersistIQ emails are basic (they look like normal personal emails) and easy to personalize, makes the whole process feel more genuine than, say, MailChimp. PersistIQ won't replace a bulk emailing tool or CRM. It serves a different purpose than, for example, Marketo or MailChimp, two products we also use

    Pros

    HubSpot

    • Automatically collecting clients’ data makes it easy to communicate and solve customer issues that are marketing-related in between projects.
    • Ability to segment our contact directory to send relevant advertising depending on the type of information they like to know about.
    • Customer support is very responsive and makes it easy to navigate through the tools with their help and the guides they provide.

    PersistIQ

    • Integrates well with tools that work with LinkedIn Sales Navigator to scrap lead emails.
    • Makes it easy to manage large-scale cold email campaigns with 3+ steps.
    • When a prospect replies to an email, it doesn't send them any of the automated emails which allow me to follow-up with those warm leads correctly.

    Cons

    HubSpot

    • DAYS OF THE WEEK/TIME:
    • Few things in Hubspot can be categorized by the DAY OF THE WEEK. It's always just the numbered date. In terms of automating a Sales team where someone gets leads on a specific DAY of the week, "Monday", this could improve. Does that make sense?
    • TICKETS:
    • Maybe it's just me... but after 2 years of using Hubspot, I still don't understand this Ticket structure versus just using TASKS.
    • Again, maybe it's me. We do not use Tickets EVER and I don't see how things would be different if we did.
    • ACTIVITY FEED:
    • This seems to be glitchy and often gives notification of, "Someone Click, Opened" blank... I understand this often happens because more than one person is on that email thread... Could this be fixed that if we do not know who "Someone" is, that instead it at least would list the EMAIL ADDRESS if not the name?
    • CONTACTS PAGE:
    • I love this page, but this has nothing compared to using LISTS. Using the Lists feature is likely the best way to really find a detailed list of clients. I wish the Contacts page was able to have some more Filtering Functionality across other properties such as Deals or Activities as the LISTS feature can do.

    • I wish there was a way to send more than 1,000 emails per day.
    • If it had more integrations with data scrapers or ways to add new leads it would be much better.
    • I'd like a way to go deeper into a lot of my stats on various emails.

        Ease of use, ease of customizability, and ease of 3rd-party integration, especially to LinkedIn Navigator, all play a vital role in our increasing reliance of HubSpot Sales for our growing sales team. Also taking into account the great training and support for HubSpot Sales available from HubSpot, including HubSpot Academy.

        Usability

        HubSpot

        Since we launched HubSpot Sales Hub into our organisation's tech stack, we've experienced a smooth transition and implementation process for those using this solution. The ease of use and the interface experience is amazing and that was a main priority for us in the purchasing phase. So far, we've been nothing but very happy with the support, implementation, and ongoing development of our sales team adapting to the solution. Highly recommend it for usability and functionality!

        HubSpot

        Oh my goodness HubSpot Support is just amazing. I submitted a question/issue to them yesterday and by this morning I had this response:
        "Hi Stephanie, I hope this finds you well and thanks so much for your patience while I was working to update the extension with my team. We were actually able to push through an update yesterday afternoon which set the default lifecycle stage to lead in the sidebar. If you take a look now, that should be in place. If it has not updated yet, I would recommend uninstalling and re-installing the sales extension so an updated version and be pushed through. Again, I want to say that I sincerely appreciate that you took the time to reach out to us and help us iron this out. HubSpot really values constructive feedback with real use-case backing to help push it along. So, thank you!"

        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

        HubSpot

        We have tried a few for a few days but the one we used for the longest time was Pipedrive. I loved Pipedrive because they have a lot of advanced functionalities and the cost was less than HubSpot. We were able to automatize our email follow-ups and they have a great design where they use a lot of colors to differentiate between if a deal is hot, warm, cold or red, green-yellow (traffic light kind of system) to know if there are action items in the deal or if the deal is idle and needs an interaction. We changed to HubSpot because we were impressed but the number of functionalities and the great reports and analytics that you can get out of the system but in the end a lot of functionalities that we wanted to use we had to make a decision if we wanted to pay more or do more manual work in order to maintain HubSpot. Another thing to keep in mind is Pipedrive offers an unlimited number of contact storage whereas HubSpot gives you 2000 contacts free and if you want to have more you have to pay an additional cost.

        We decided on PersistIQ because it was cheaper than the incumbents and as we were starting we wanted to see if this would be helpful or relevant to us. We later discovered Apollo.io and we might switch to them as they are also cheap and look better, but we might also get back to manual emailing and Linkedin connecting.

        Return on Investment

        HubSpot

        • 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.
