When looking for HubSpot alternatives, clients want lower prices and better value for their money. Our least expensive plan gives you the same number of contacts for one-third the price of a similar plan at Hubspot. We also offer unlimited contacts in our Pro plan for just $99 a month – Hubspot’s most expensive plan costs 70X more for around 100,000 contacts.
At EngageBay, we have monthly and annual payments for all plans. You can try out any plan for as many months as you like, before you pay for the full year. No need to hastily buy an annual plan and then regret wasting your money. If you’re unhappy with the platform, you can cancel anytime – this is another way EngageBay is friendly for small businesses!
EngageBay offers Marketing, Service (live chat and helpdesk), CRM and Sales modules. Customers can buy them separately or as a single all-in-one suite. The All-in-one suite offers powerful insights and reports, reduces data inconsistencies and duplications, eliminates the need for multiple software, and provides a holistic view of each customer across various departments – and saves a lot of time and money in the process.
Though Hubspot offers powerful marketing automation, it is expensive and can take months in training and costly contractual commitments. EngageBay packs in powerful sales and marketing functionality with a remarkably intuitive interface. With zero upfront costs and no training required, it's up and running in minutes!
Here is how EngageBay compares with HubSpot feature by feature.
Both HubSpot and EngageBay offer integrated sales, marketing and service software for business growth. They offer identical features. However, EngageBay is much more affordable and simpler 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 $1,600 per month paid annually plan while EngageBay offers it in its Growth plan ($49.99 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 can save your agents hours every single day – so that they can focus on the most important task: 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, EngageBay’s free CRM system is much simpler to use and integrates well with the marketing, sales, and support modules –making it the most popular Hubspot competitor.
Though Hubspot offers excellent web visitor analytics, you need to pay thousands of dollars a month to get these features. 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 opening an email, clicking on a link, or visiting web pages. You can also implement automations for events such as creating new tasks for your agents to place calls, adding tags for segmentation, and 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 for your web site visitors and convert them. Boost sales by showing offers, discounts at the right time.
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 vital for businesses to monitor their growth. EngageBay’s holistic reporting module offers deep, insightful, and recurring insights – making it the best alternative to Hubspot.
EngageBay’s Free Plan offers 1,000 branded emails a month at no cost. So you have enough resources to leverage email marketing for growth in those early days.
You also get a landing page.
HubSpot gives you 500 emails per day for free, but these come with HubSpot branding, not yours. Yes, they let you import up to 1 million contacts, but you can only store them. There is no email marketing or ad targeting in HubSpot’s Forever Free plan. This makes EngageBay the best Hubspot competitor.
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.
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 12,000, depending on your plan.
We don’t serve the same set of customers like HubSpot. Our pricing and design are optimized for smaller, younger business that 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. No other Hubspot competitor gives you these features.
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 go with Hubspot, you need to pay a one-time mandatory onboarding fee of up to $12,000 in addition to the astronomical plan cost. What’s more, you must commit annually, meaning you have to pay for the whole year even if you decide to stop using the software.For more advanced features, you need to go for the Professional plan that starts at $1,600 a month. You also need to pay a mandatory onboarding fee of $3,750, bringing the one-year cost to around $23,000 – and that’s before taxes!
In contrast, EngageBay offers:
In a nutshell, Hubspot’s one-month cost is more expensive than EngageBay’s yearly subscription. You can use the money saved to give your employees a well-deserved bonus!
