HubSpot Sales Hub

If you have a large sales team the HubSpot professional suite at $800 dollars a month is well suited, it comes with a lot of functionalities that lets you automatize tasks and keep control of your leads and progression of each deal. For a small sales team, it is a lot harder because the cost for 3-4 people goes up. They should have an overall cost but it would be good if they had an individual cost for smaller companies that includes all features.

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 Sales Hub

  • Provides a streamlined system for creating, sending, and tracking automated email campaigns to current customers as well as cold prospects. This is a huge benefit for my sales team in that we can have a one-stop-shop for prospect engagement management.
  • Playbooks in HubSpot Sales Hub has been a lifesaver by giving my sales team the step-by-step tools in order to present the best prospect discovery calls and demos. It's a simple process to follow but super effective!
  • One of the areas that Hubspot does incredibly well is they provide score rating for each and every prospect within our CRM. The score rating is based upon prospect engagement to email outreach allowing my sales team to prioritize cold/hot leads and to focus on the higher engaged prospects.
  • Another big benefit we've experienced is that HubSpot Sales Hub integrates with our CRM allowing a streamlined tech stack. This saves my sales team a lot of time managing both the CRM and HubSpot Sales Hub.

  • 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 Sales Hub

  • Search feature is horrible. When you have a prospect on the phone and you type in their name or company it isn't always visible. You have to use emails, otherwise all other searches are suspect and have to double and triple checked.... tough to do when talking to a prospect.
  • Deal cards need to be MORE customizable (last update aside). There needs to be control (more) on what is presented on the card. Also, the order in which the cards are visible should be customizable. Allow the organization to sequence.
  • The ability to create "online reports" dynamically. Simply allow me to create a report on needed criteria and then publish the report in a custom URL that I can share with non-HubSpot users. This can be used to share with my vendors, dealers, partners who I would never allow in my system but I want to provide visibility

PersistIQ

  • 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.

HubSpot sales has allowed all of our teams company-wide to communicate and keep all of our information secure and organized. We are able to save time and money by using this platform, and we could not imagine turning back to the way things used to be done. We are so thankful for HubSpot Sales!

It's totally clean, consistent, and easy to use/understand. I love everything about this tool! From Gmail to being in the platform everything looks similar, is orange and easy to find, and very clear and user friendly. It's intuitive and hey, if my sales reps are using it it must be good and simple!

Usually pretty responsible and friendly and have had my questions circled back on. However, they haven't been able to answer several of the more in-depth questions I have had, but those questions may have been way too nuanced and specific so I would give the benefit of the doubt.

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 Sales Hub

kvCORE is provided by our brokerage. It is great, but more techie and complicated than I like. There are 10 videos on how to use it. They say the BEST CRM you can have is the ONE YOU USE. So, HubSpot [Sales Hub] allows me to use it without having to know anything different than using my Gmail. The dashboard and all the functions are simple, look familiar, and work the way you would expect them to.
Arcoma L. Lambert | TrustRadius Reviewer

PersistIQ

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 Sales Hub

  • 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.

  • PersistIQ has improved our bottom line by getting us more leads. So, increased ROI.
