Saleshive breaks up its service into cold calling & email marketing — and doesn’t incorporate text campaigns. They may do a lot of dialing, but Smith.ai spends more time on strategy and engagement of each lead. We recognize that more touchpoints improve engagement rates. Every campaign includes up to five calls per contact, along with text & email follow-up. Our AI-powered agents are able to reach out at the right time — and with the right message — to meet your most important business goals.
Saleshive refers to itself as a B2B cold-calling company. Prices start at $5,000 per month for just email and LinkedIn campaigns — with an additional $3,000 per month added for outbound calls. Smith.ai is a strategic sales partner available 24/7/365. Our sales outreach plans start at just $2,400 per month, with 200 contacts included at the starting price, and that includes strategy and consulting, white-glove setup, script writing, client onboarding, a dedicated account manager, as well as phone, email, and text outreach. We can work off of your current lead lists or quickly supply targeted lead lists upon request for a low cost of $1/lead, which includes targeting strategy and research, along with sample list data so you have confidence the leads meet your specific criteria.
Both companies can book meetings on your calendar, but your campaign goals may vary. What about taking a payment, invitations to a webinar, or filling out new-client forms? Smith.ai flexes its approach based on your needs. Our agents follow the strategy that we develop together and lean on our technology to guide our conversations. Specifically, our AI helps our team stay focused on your campaign objective, push past stalls or objections, and navigate calls more successfully.
With both companies, you have access to a client dashboard for visibility into your campaign’s success. But with Smith.ai, we’ll provide access to call recordings and searchable call transcripts — giving you the flexibility to find conversations quickly without needing to remember the day or time of the call. We also integrate with your CRM. Through these integrations, we can automatically import leads into our system from yours for immediate outbound engagement.
We also offer the option to have inbound coverage when leads call back in response to voicemails and messages sent to them. Our 24/7 virtual receptionists are available to add to any Outreach Campaign plan for just $255 per month, ensuring 360-degree coverage of your leads, 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 “frontline” of your lead flow so you never need to worry about in-house coverage when our campaigns are running on your behalf.
For objective-focused businesses that need strategic sales outreach, affordable pricing, and deep call analytics — Smith.ai is the superior choice over Saleshive.
