LeadCandy

LeadCandy is well suited in both the front and back of the office, along with the staff that is consistently involved in other activities around our school site. It is not as appropriate when the staff does not need to do a lot of searching for emails.

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

LeadCandy

  • Speed- the process from start to finish is rather quick.
  • Innovative-there are a lot of features on LeadCandy that are not on other apps!
  • Remarkable- the feedback from the staff has only consisted of "how nice it is we’ve needed a program like this".

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

LeadCandy

  • Some older staff aren't as receptive to new products and softwares.
  • Had to relearn and teach staff- teaching the staff the new program is time consuming.
JESSICA MARTINDALE | TrustRadius Reviewer

PersistIQ

  • They should incorporate smarter reminders that tell me when I should focus on certain leads who are interacting with my emails frequently
  • They don’t have OOO email rescheduling

Alternatives Considered

LeadCandy

They are similar in many ways, LeadBot uses conversations, not forms, so all of the lead qualifications you need to do can happen in real-time while someone is live on your website. LeadCandy instead helps you build and find people which then leads to conversations. I feel like LeadCandy is the complete package, where they help you from start to finish.

PersistIQ

I've used both PersistIQ and Outreach in the past 2 years, so I feel my comparisons should still be fairly accurate. Persist is better for smaller, earlier stage companies looking for a cheaper and easy sales automation tool. Outreach is definitely the more powerful and customizable tool, but can be overkill.

Return on Investment

LeadCandy

  • Effectiveness- the amount of email lists we received in the database!
  • We've received the database quickly and efficiently.
  • Neatness of website and app- the website was easy to manage.
JESSICA MARTINDALE | TrustRadius Reviewer

PersistIQ

  • It helps me get a lot of emails out efficiently.
  • It's saved me a lot of time.
  • There are times that I feel it's not as good as competitors.
