Pearl Lemon Leads is a lead generation agency while Smith.ai offers affordable sales outreach.

Pearl Lemon Leads is a lead generation agency that has a globally remote team of specialists. Smith.ai’s SDRs are North America-based and handle more than just lead generation. Our team works towards your business goals, whether that’s lead follow-ups, lead screening, event invitations, or appointment setting. Plus, we’re available 24/7/365 for not only sales outreach but also to answer incoming calls and live chat messages.Β 

Pearl Lemon Leads is an offshoot of its sister company, Pearl Lemon. So, while Pearl Lemon Leads does offer lead generation support, its expertise lies more in SEO. When it comes to outreach campaigns, Smith.ai is the pro. We have the capabilities to set appointments, take payments, route calls, complete new client intake forms, and more. Our agents are powered by our AI technology β€” which guides their conversations so they can work past stalls or objections and see better results.Β 

Smith.ai is more affordable. While Pearl Lemon Leads has a starting price of Β£5,917 per month, our per-contact pricing model means your monthly costs will be based on how many contacts you’d like us to reach on your behalf. Our campaigns start at just $600 per month β€” which includes 50 leads, cadences of up to five calls, follow-up emails and texts, white-glove setup, client onboarding, custom call scripts, dedicated account managers, strategic planning, and multi-touch engagement.

The technology we offer is superior to what Pearl Lemon Leads offers, too. Not only do we connect to over 5,000 CRMs, marketing platforms, calendars, billing systems, and form software, but we also provide detailed call summaries, audio recordings, and searchable transcripts, as well as a rich 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. Through our integrations, we can import your leads directly into our system. Or, we can supply targeted lead lists upon request for cold calling for a low cost of $1 per lead, which includes targeting strategy and research, along with sample list data.Β 

We don't just offer outbound support either. Smith.ai’s 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. Our 24/7 live chat allows us to respond to leads visiting your website after receiving our outreach. We handle the entire β€œfrontline” of your lead flow so you never need to worry about in-house coverage.

For 24/7 North America-based professionals with a specialty in sales development and outreach, affordable per-lead pricing, and robust CRM integrations, Smith.ai is the superior choice over Pearl Lemon Leads.

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.
