Abstrakt Marketing Group is a marketing agency while Smith.ai offers full-service sales development.

While Abstrakt Marketing Group offers SEO, video production, and outbound calling services, Smith.ai’s expertise lies in outreach campaigns and sales development. We build targeted campaigns to create more sales opportunities to meet your most important business needs. Featuring hundreds of North America-based agents, we use our AI-powered technology to guide our phone conversations and work past stalls or objections to improve campaign success. Our team can set appointments, take payments, route calls, complete new client intake forms, and more.

Smith.ai uses a call-first strategy that incorporates up to five outbound calls as well as text and email follow-ups as part of our strategic efforts. The call is our primary engagement method because it’s the most effective means of communicating with prospects, and the multi-channel approach improves engagement rates. All Smith.ai plans include white-glove setup, script writing, client onboarding, and a dedicated account manager.Β 

Our sales agents are available 24/7, no matter where you or your customers are located. We identify the right cadence and timing for each campaign to generate the best results. Plus, we are fully transparent with pricing. Our Outreach Campaigns start at $12 per lead, with a 50 lead minimum, and our per-contact pricing model means you only pay for the contacts you’d like us to reach. We can work off of your current lead lists or quickly supply targeted leads upon request for cold calling for a low cost of $1/lead. This includes targeting strategy and research, along with sample list data so you have confidence the leads meet your specific criteria.

Smithi.ai’s technology sets us apart. Besides our AI-powered call flows that help our agents handle calls with purpose and efficiency, we also offer a ton of integration options. While Abstrakt Marketing Group does offer some integrations, Smith.ai seamlessly syncs with more than 5,000 CRMs, marketing platforms, calendars, billing systems, and intake form builders. We also provide detailed call summaries, audio recordings, and searchable transcripts, as well as a client dashboard that includes real-time statuses, attempts we’ve made, and call outcomes per contact β€” so you have full visibility into the details of your campaign results.Β 

We’re not a marketing agency, so unlike Abstrakt Marketing Group, we become a true extension of your sales team by handling the entire β€œfrontline” of your lead flow. We do this by not only offering sales support, but also inbound coverage as well. You never need to worry about customer calls when our campaigns are running on your behalf. Our 24/7 virtual receptionists are available to add to any Outreach Campaign plan for just $285 per month. We even offer 24/7 live chat so leads visiting your website after receiving our outreach are greeted and engaged immediately.

For transparent pricing, more robust CRM integrations, and full-service sales development β€” Smith.ai is the superior choice over Abstrakt Marketing Group.

Crushing sales quotas
Before Smith.ai, I’d have to monitor the lead inbox. Now, Smith.ai is making the outbound call as soon as the lead comes in. They vet it for me and I get to talk to only qualified leads. We essentially have a team of intake people who know our product and work directly for us.
