Leadium is an appointment setting service while Smith.ai offers comprehensive and affordable sales outreach.


Leadium is a sales agency that provides appointment setting and lead generation services. Smith.ai becomes a true extension of your sales team. We do this through white-glove setup, client onboarding, custom call scripts, dedicated account managers, strategic planning, and multi-touch engagement.Β 

We use a call-first strategy that incorporates text and email follow-up with detailed information as supplemental engagement techniques. The call is our primary engagement method because it’s the most effective means of communicating with prospects. The multi-channel approach that we take improves engagement rates even further, but all outreach activities center around strategically timed outbound calls.Β 

We make up to five calls per contact to reach targeted leads with call messaging crafted to specifically achieve your objective. Our team can easily scale based on your lead volume with our hundreds of North America-based SDRs. We can also take payments, schedule appointments on your calendar, and complete new-client intake forms. Our team of agents is primed to always be working toward your most important campaign objectives.Β 

Leadium isn’t available 24/7, Smith.ai is. Your leads will be efficiently reached β€” based on the timing and cadence that drives the best results. And unlike Leadium, we provide comprehensive coverage so you can address all your business needs under one roof. Through our inbound coverage, 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. 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.Β 

Our investment in technology sets us apart. Our proprietary AI guides our SDR’s conversations to successfully work past stalls and objections for improved conversion rates. We also feature more than 5,000 integrations with CRMs, marketing platforms, calendars, billing systems, and form builders, which allows us to accept payments, schedule appointments directly on your calendar, and complete third-party intake.Β 

Our software integrations also allow you to pipe leads directly to us for immediate engagement. This helps add efficiency to your customer response times and improve your speed to lead. If you don’t have quality leads on hand, Smith.ai can supply them upon request for cold calling for a low cost of $1 per lead. This added service includes targeting strategy and research to make sure we’re only reaching leads that match your target audience.

With quality leads in hand, our team provides comprehensive and affordable sales development. Our plans start at just $12 per lead, with a minimum of only 50 leads. Our efforts are always centered around your objective as we reach, engage, and qualify new leads to support your sales development and create new business opportunities.

For 24/7 North America-based agents, robust CRM integrations, and affordable pricing, Smith.ai is the superior choice over Leadium.

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.
