SalesRoads offers marketing & sales support while Smith.ai specializes in strategic sales outreach.

While SalesRoads offers sales support, they fail to cater their efforts to your specific needs. Our outreach strategy is built upon your specific objectives. All our plans include research and planning, white-glove setup, custom call messaging, client onboarding, and a dedicated account manager. We have hundreds of sales-trained North America-based SDRs that make up to five outbound calls per contact β€” along with follow-up texts and emails. Our agents are backed by AI technology that powers our call flows so they can work past stalls or objections and see greater campaign success.

We offer many useful features that SalesRoads doesn’t include β€” like payment collection, call routing, audio recordings, and searchable transcripts. You also have access to appointment setting directly on your calendar, new-client intake form completion, and outbound business caller ID. Plus, Smith.ai integrates with over 5,000 CRMs, marketing platforms, calendars, and billing systems β€” including Zapier. Through these integrations, we can automatically import your lead lists into our system (something SalesRoads can’t do). By piping those leads directly to Smith.ai for immediate outbound engagement, we can respond faster and improve your speed to lead. Plus, if you need more leads, we can help with that, too. We can supply targeted lead lists upon request for cold calling for a low cost of $1/lead. We’ll make sure they match your campaign strategy and target audience.Β 

Unlike SalesRoads, we provide comprehensive coverage with bilingual agents so you can have all of your sales needs met by one single partner. Through our 24/7 virtual receptionists, we provide inbound answering 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 messages 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.

At $9,500 per month, SalesRoads is considerably more expensive. Smith.ai starts at $12 per lead with a minimum of 50 leads. Through this per-contact pricing model, your monthly costs are not based on the number of agents used or total hours worked, but instead on how many contacts you’d like us to reach β€” making it both predictable and affordable. Included also is our client dashboard, which offers full visibility into your campaigns. You can quickly and easily track results in real-time so you know exactly what happened with each and every touchpoint.Β 

With our hundreds of North America-based sales agents, more useful features, transparent and affordable pricing, and advanced CRM integrations, Smith.ai is the superior choice over SalesRoads.

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.
