Here is how EngageBay compares with HubSpot at individual feature level.
Both HubSpot are an integrated sales, marketing and service software for growing companies. They offer identical feature set. However, EngageBay is much more affordable and simple to use and hence is the right alternative to HubSpot for small businesses.
While both EngageBay and HubSpot offer Marketing Automation functionality, EngageBay is simpler to use and offers more powerful marketing automation features. Also, HubSpot marketing automation feature is available in the $800 per month paid annually plan while EngageBay offers it in its Growth plan ($29 monthly). With EngageBay, one can create multi-step and multi-channel marketing automation campaigns in minutes using a simple but powerful visual builder. EngageBay is the best HubSpot alternative for marketing automation at an affordable price.
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 HubSpot, setting up automations is simple and does not need long implementation cycles and experts.
EngageBay and HubSpot offer a feature-rich CRM for unlimited users for free. However, the most popular HubSpot alternative, EngageBay's CRM system is much simpler to use and is integrated well with the marketing, sales and support software.
While HubSpot provides web visitor analytics, they are fairly limited and are expensive to implement and maintain. 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 HubSpot alternative.
EngageBay and HubSpot both are at par with each other in their social automation features.
EngageBay provides a powerful way to engage web visitors and capture leads. Create cool web popups and show them to your web visitors at the right time. Boost sales by showing offers, discounts at the right time.
HubSpot does not offer any web engagement features.
While HubSpot has native support for invoices and payments directly, EngageBay achieves this functionality through integrating with popular third party apps. EngageBay integrates with popular invoicing apps like Freshbooks and Xero. For payment processing, EngageBay integrates with Stripe. More integrations will be added so our customers have a wide choice to pick any invoicing and payments apps they prefer.
Reports are the most critical for any business to monitor growth. EngageBay has a holistic reporting module to provide you with deep and meaningful insights. EngageBay is the perfect alternative to HubSpot.
EngageBay’s Free Plan provides $20 worth of emails for free. So you have enough resources to leverage email marketing for growth in those early days.
You also get up to 5 free landing pages.
HubSpot doesn’t give you more than a stack of emails for free. Yes, they have unlimited contacts but you can only store them. There is no list creation or email marketing available in HubSpot’s Forever 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. We could create a combined interface. It would have become complicated and then you would take a long time to learn on your own.
Be rest assured. Our design works for you and everyone in your team. Both sections, marketing and sales, access the same data. This reduces and almost nullifies the effect of mis-communication between the teams.
On top of astronomical prices, HubSpot also charges an onboarding fee; they train you and your team for this fee. Depending on the plan you buy, HubSpot’s onboarding fee could be anywhere between $600 and $3000.
We don’t serve the same set of customers like HubSpot. Our pricing and design are optimized for smaller and younger business who aspire to be million-dollar, multinational corporations one day.
Unlike HubSpot, EngageBay has no mandatory on-boarding fee. If you get stuck anywhere, our support associates are there to help you.
Even with their $50/month Starter plan, HubSpot’s email marketing features are limited:
On HubSpot, all these functions will cost $800/month paid yearly. There is also a mandatory on-boarding fee of $3000 that you can’t skip. It takes over $15,000 of initial payment to get started - and that’s even before adding the taxes.
You need landing pages, A/B testing, detailed segmentation, and marketing automation to have a growth-enabling ecosystem. It helps your marketing team thrive and achieve or even exceed your marketing goals.
At EngageBay, you can enjoy all these features for just $79.99/month. Your payment goes down even further to just $63.99/month, if you purchase an yearly contract. No onboarding fees, no hidden charges, and guaranteed phone support included in this plan.
If you do decide to take the plunge and pay for HubSpot, you’ll be charged more than just your monthly fee. There’s both a mandatory on-boarding session fee and the yearly payment, both of which you pay at the start of becoming a HubSpot user.
For availing significant functionalities in HubSpot, you will need to buy their Professional plan, which costs $800 per month. Along with the onboarding fee of $3000 and monthly payments of $800 for all twelve months, your first payment to HubSpot will be $12,600 (+ taxes)!
In contrast, EngageBay offers you:
Theoretically (i.e. before taxes), this means you pay less with for EngageBay for the entire year, than what would you pay HubSpot for just one month. Give your hard-working employees a raise or take them on a vacation with all the money saved on not paying the onboarding fee.

List creation and management, email sequences, and email/phone support - all these features cost at least $50/month with HubSpot. EngageBay understands the budget constraints for small businesses.
All these features are included in our Basic plan starting from $6.99/month if you bill annually and $9.99/month for monthly billing.
Need more features? Our Growth plan provides more features for less than $25/month (yearly contract). The next higher plan, Pro plan, costs you less than $64 and it covers almost all features we have to offer!
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. Yet manually doing all your marketing sucks up even more time.
Our founders are owners of startups and small businesses just like you. We understand that money is tight in those early days. We also know how important it is to successfully market your new company.
