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.

Twilio SendGrid

Twilio SendGrid Email Marketing is perfect for organizations both big and small that may be on a lower budget. It is a very affordable solution for users with a large number of email addresses. While other providers may offer "free" storage for email contacts... the cost to send campaigns to those contacts can be very costly. While they do not offer widgets or other integrations for websites/social media... it is very easy to import and manage contacts. Additionally, they offer a comprehensive self-help support section online, but it's also easy to hop on the phone or on chat with a rep if you ever need technical support or assistance. Twilio SendGrid Email Marketing may not be the most affordable solution for users who are not currently sending email campaigns to their users, but are simply storing email contacts

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.

  • Drag and drop email designer for transactional emails - super nice even though I do code, it's much quicker and easier to implement without code.
  • Very simple implementation. Only a few lines of code need to be added in our backend and boom we were up and running in less than a day.
  • Listening to customer feedback. They regularly send emails about new features and ask for feedback to improve their software.
  • Some of the cheapest and best dedicated IPs.
  • Easy integration and setup between marketing and transactional emails. Super helpful to have everything in one place.

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

  • Actually viewing previous emails dispatched. SendGrid does not have this feature - although it provides numbers on emails dispatched within 3 days for the cheapest plan.
  • The service asks you to pay more (although a minimal amount) to have visibility on email activity upto 30 days in the past.
  • The API doesn't allow an export of a report of email activity over a period of time. It can be quite frustrating at times to be limited in this way.
  • Their customer support isn't the best. Certainly some room for improvement there.

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!

It has the potential to be really cool. However, it feels as if it was created by developers for developers (and I work with developers, yet even for me the instrument was somewhat not easy to use - just read SendGrid's help manuals...) However, if you are into data and your way of thinking is more mathematical rather than lyrical, you'll enjoy this instrument

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.

Twilio SendGrid Email API is everything we want it to be, and we have no reason to look for any other solution. Features and pricing match exactly what we need. As developers for SaaS products, Twilio SendGrid Email API provides a great service. I hope that they stay this way and don't inflate the service with too many marketing oriented features, because there are other tools for that and Twilio SendGrid Email API is a API for sending email first and foremost.

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

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.

With ExpressPigeon, SendGrid stacks up very well and actually provides just as much functionality for us as ExpressPigeon, but costs surrounding that use was advantageous with ExpressPigeon. SendGrid has recently added functionality that brings it closer to Act-On, specifically on the marketing automation end. This really allows users to create long-term campaigns.

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.

  • Our clients experience significant ROI from their web forms - without receipt of forms, many of them would not still be in business.
  • As a solution for clients' sites, we find SendGrid is a fast installation and a 1 stop problem solver, saving us man-hours.
