All-in-one suite saves a lot of money and time, provides better insights, better reporting, reduced data inconsistencies, eliminates the need for complex integrations and data duplications while providing a holistic view of the customer across the departments.

CRM & Sales Enablement

Sales Enablement helps your sales team improve their efficiency. Automating sales processes save hours every day for each sales agent so they can focus on selling. Unlike ActiveCampaign, setting up automations is simple and does not need a lot of training.

While ActiveCampaign also offers CRM, it has fairly limited features. EngageBay provides an advanced CRM system to help you streamline sales processes and stay organized. The CRM is simple to use and works for teams of all sizes. Whether you are a sales team of 1 or 1000, EngageBay has you covered. Use our teams feature to divide your sales teams into groups and stay on top by getting insights and other metrics into performance of sales. Deal and task management is simple in EngageBay, thanks to the intuitive drag and drop functionality. Access other powerful features like ability to call and send SMS/text straight from CRM, ability to send and track proposals and more.

Services/Support module

EngageBay has an integrated service module to help growing companies deliver world class support and turn visitors to delighted customers. In the current age, delighted customers are the best brand ambassadors and marketers for your business.

Web Analytics

While ActiveCampaign provides web visitor analytics, they are fairly limited and offers very limited insights. EngageBay makes it simple to track your customers and their activities. EngageBay provides real-time notifications on customer events like opening an email, clicking a link or visiting your web pages. You can create automations on such events like creating a task for your agent to call or email the customer, add a tag for better customer segmentation or more.

The advanced analytics part of EngageBay makes it a perfect ActiveCampaign alternative.

ActiveCampaign does not provide reporting around forms, landing pages and critical sales and services modules. All these will not help you get an overall picture of the efficiency of your marketing and sales processes. On the otherhand, EngageBay provides you lot of data points and key metrics across all the departments - marketing, sales and customer service making it the perfect alternative to ActiveCampaign.

Frequently Asked Questions - FAQs

EngageBay’s Free Plan offers 1,000 branded emails at no cost so you have enough resources to leverage email marketing for growth in those early days.

You also get a landing page.

We also offer a plethora of tools to help you get started, including email marketing, autoresponders, email broadcasts, drip campaigns, helpdesk, and live chat.

ActiveCampaign, on the other hand, does not have a free plan.

At EngageBay, we have identified mis-communication between the marketing and sales team as the biggest productivity killer.

We divided the two sections as both teams perform a largely different set of tasks. A combined interface would create more complications and result in a steeper learning curve. At EngageBay, we like to keep things simple!

Though we have different sections for marketing, sales, and customer service, the unified CRM ensures that everyone has access to the same data. This reduces and almost nullifies the effect of mis-communication between the teams.

EngageBay was founded by tech experts who understand that small business owners don’t have enough of a budget for marketing and customer support. We also know how important it is to successfully market your new company or small business.

Your budget isn’t unlimited, nor is your time. By trying to learn and integrate several other programs or software into your current system, you waste time. That’s why EngageBay’s all-in-one suite offers marketing, sales, and customer support in a single package.

We have aligned our pricing with the budgets of most growing companies. Our most expensive package, the Pro, costs less than $100/month. With this plan, you get priority support, account-based marketing, pro tools, thousands of emails, unlimited contacts, and unlimited web forms. We also professionally onboard you – absolutely free of charge!
