Affordable plans for every budget.
With ArsenalBG, you select an SDR you think is right for you. Smith.ai offers full-coverage sales development.

Smith.ai is the comprehensive outreach partner you need to grow your pipeline and create more sales opportunities. With white-glove setup, strategic planning focused on your specific objective, script writing, and client onboarding β€” you can remain as hands-on or hands-off as you’d like. Let our agents take care of your sales development so your team can focus more time on closing deals.Β 

Our AI-empowered agents β€” using our proprietary software β€” make calls at the right time and use the right messaging to meet your most important business objectives. We make up to five calls per contact and follow up with texts & emails for improved conversion rates. You can supply leads lists directly to us or we can generate them for you. Tell us about your customer base or ICP and we’ll quickly supply targeted lead lists upon request for cold calling for a low cost of $1/lead. This includes targeting strategy and research along with sample data so you have the confidence they meet your specific criteria.

ArsenalBG is an expensive business growth solution. You get one SDR starting at $3,750 per month β€” but that includes revenue sharing. With a cookie-cutter framework, their reps stick to the plan to β€œintroduce, qualify, nurture, and set” appointments. Smith.ai is a more complete and practical solution and never charges commission payouts. Our plans start at just $600 per month and include strategy and consulting along with a dedicated account manager. Our North America-based agents lean on our AI tools and act as an extension of your team β€” flexing their approach based on your business, audience, and goals.

Our capabilities and features surpass that of ArsenalBG. We include β€” at no additional cost β€” appointment setting, a CRM or Zapier integration, third-party form completion, and outbound business caller ID. We offer rich reporting capabilities for full visibility in each of your campaigns. While ArsenalBG has 22 integrations, Smith.ai integrates with over 5,000, including CRMs, marketing platforms, calendars, and billing systems. Through these integrations, we can also automatically import leads into our system from yours. By piping those leads directly to Smith.ai for immediate outbound engagement, we can respond faster and help boost conversation rates.

We also offer the option to have inbound coverage when leads call back in response to voicemails or messages. Our 24/7 virtual receptionists are available to add to any Outreach Campaign plan for just $285 per month, ensuring 360-degree coverage of your leads β€” particularly those with the highest intent. We even offer 24/7 live chat so leads visiting your website after receiving our outreach are greeted and engaged immediately. We handle the entire β€œfrontline” of your lead flow so you never need to worry about in-house coverage when our campaigns are running on your behalf.

Smith.ai offers a truer partnership with full end-to-end support. For a full team of skilled SDRs, flexible features, and robust integrations, Smith.ai is the superior choice over ArsenalBG.

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.
