VSA Prospecting offers baseline marketing services. Smith.ai offers comprehensive inbound and outbound sales support, on top of so much more.

VSA Prospecting’s plans start at $10,000, which is unbelievably expensive. Smith.ai’s minimum is only $400 per month, which is significantly cheaper than VSA Prospecting. Plus, you get an entire team of dedicated SDRs, so you get more bang for your buck. For services beyond sales outreach, we only charge per-call, so your monthly costs will be based on how many calls you’d like us to make on your behalf. 


On top of being pricey, VSA Prospecting doesn’t even offer 24/7 availability. With how limited their availability is, and how expensive their plans are, you may just as well hire another salesperson. Smith.ai agents are available 24/7, so your leads are guaranteed to be well taken care of around-the-clock.


Sure, VSA Prospecting offers some competitive lead generation capabilities, but Smith.ai is one of the only services that puts the control of your marketing campaigns back in your hands. Our Outreach Campaigns feature provides professional assistance so your team can effectively follow-up with potential clients, set appointments with prospective clients, re-engage previously unresponsive leads, and so much more. We even offer real-time performance analytics so it’s easy for you to follow your campaigns’ progress while remaining hands-off.


VSA Prospecting performs more like a call center than a marketing support service. Smith.ai is more dedicated to cultivating lifelong relationships with your potential clients. Whether it's a one-time or a six-part call sequence, we’ve got you covered. Smith.ai gives you all the tools you need to build efficient campaigns with just a single service provider. 


VSA Prospecting is limited in what they can do for your business. Sure, they can make outbound calls and set appointments, but they don’t advertise many useful features, like payment collection, on their site. Smith.ai’s services, however, don’t stop at high-quality sales support. Our live agents can become a true extension of your office: Not only can we make outbound calls on your behalf, but we can also be the staff who receives call-backs and inbound calls from leads and clients with our Virtual Receptionist plans. We provide comprehensive coverage so you can address all your business needs under one roof.


As far as technology is concerned, Smith.ai and VSA Prospecting both have online portals where you can track calls, note key performance metrics, and more, but when it comes to integrations, VSA Prospecting doesn’t offer much in the form of integrations. Smith.ai, on the other hand, plays well with over 30 CRMs, marketing platforms, calendars, billing systems, and intake forms. Furthermore, our AI platform connects to you via SMS and Slack and is even a Zapier trigger (for our more tech-savvy users). 


Additionally, when VSA Prospecting handles your calls, they aren’t guaranteed to be in the hands of North America-based SDRs, Smith.ai can. We hire bright and friendly agents who sound just like in-house, who speak clear American English, and who are familiar with all the language nuances that you'd expect from North America-based agents, but you don't get with agents abroad. With Smith.ai, there's never any indication the agent isn't right there with you in your office, sounding like they fit right in.

For higher quality outreach campaigns, far more affordable pricing, highly capable agents, robust CRM integrations, and 24/7 North America-based professionals, growth-oriented businesses prefer Smith.ai to VSA Prospecting.
