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,
. PersistIQ won't replace a bulk emailing tool or CRM. It serves a different purpose than, for example,

Terapeak makes sense for people looking to sell a lot of items or resellers. It does not make sense for people selling one-off items or individuals looking to simply spring clean. It is great for determining pricing, what to start auctions at, and figuring out a shipping/returns strategy (whether or not to offer free shipping, have the buyer pay shipping, and if you should have returns allowed.) I would not recommend it if you just want to move the item out of your house or if you do not care what price an item sells for.
Read full review Pros 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. Read full review Gives accurate comparable sold listings to determine pricing. Aggregates sales information well, so I do not need to scroll through pages of listings. Helps with determining shipping/whether to turn on free shipping or not. Helps with sourcing and deciding whether to pay up for certain items. Read full review Cons 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. Read full review I wish I could use Terapeak outside of eBay. Why can't I use it with other platforms like Mercari, Poshmark, etc.? I don't like that I have to pay for this feature. Other selling platforms provide their sold information free of charge. It feels antiquated. I need to click through many menus and tabs to price items. I wish it would automatically move me through the pages, instead of making me fill out the information, then hit "next" or "enter." Read full review Alternatives Considered
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
.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.

Terapeak can't be beaten for selling on eBay, because it is part and parcel with eBay. For comparable listings on other sites, I prefer Sellhound and
. I find that
are more helpful for SEO and getting to the top of Google's search results. I feel that I get more eyes on my products using other services when I am not specifically selling through eBay. But on eBay, Terapeak is the only service I will use.
Read full review Return on Investment Using PersistIQ has allowed us to engage more people more quickly than other outbound processes. So, more leads. We're able to understand message performance more rapidly and readily having used PersistIQ. PersistIQ has improved our bottom line by getting us more leads. So, increased ROI. Read full review We have saved time by using Terapeak for pricing. We did not price our items up too much but made them competitive with the market. We made more money using Terapeak than we would have without it because we did not under-price items. Terapeak gave accurate comparable sold listings. One negative impact was simply the cost. It was about $20/month and was set up to auto-renew. We forgot to cancel our membership and accidentally paid for a service we weren't using. Read full review ScreenShots
