Feature by Feature Comparison with ActiveCampaign

EngageBay offers Marketing, Service (Live Chat and helpdesk), CRM (Customer Relationship Management) and Sales modules. Customers can buy them separately or as a single all-in-one suite. The all-in-one suite offers powerful insights and reports, reduces data inconsistencies and duplications, eliminates the need for multiple software, and provides a holistic view of each customer across various departments – and saves a lot of time and money in the process.

ActiveCampaign offers CRM and marketing automation but you cannot buy them separately and you end up paying for features that you do not use. EngageBay packs powerful sales and marketing functionality with a remarkably intuitive interface. With zero upfront cost and no training needed, EngageBay can be up and running in minutes!

Frequently Asked Questions - FAQs

EngageBay’s Free Plan offers 1,000 branded emails at no cost so you have enough resources to leverage email marketing for growth in those early days.

You also get a landing page.

We also offer a plethora of tools to help you get started, including email marketing, autoresponders, email broadcasts, drip campaigns, helpdesk, and live chat.

ActiveCampaign, on the other hand, does not have a free plan.

At EngageBay, we have identified mis-communication between the marketing and sales team as the biggest productivity killer.

We divided the two sections as both teams perform a largely different set of tasks. A combined interface would create more complications and result in a steeper learning curve. At EngageBay, we like to keep things simple!

Though we have different sections for marketing, sales, and customer service, the unified CRM ensures that everyone has access to the same data. This reduces and almost nullifies the effect of mis-communication between the teams.

EngageBay was founded by tech experts who understand that small business owners don’t have enough of a budget for marketing and customer support. We also know how important it is to successfully market your new company or small business.

Your budget isn’t unlimited, nor is your time. By trying to learn and integrate several other programs or software into your current system, you waste time. That’s why EngageBay’s all-in-one suite offers marketing, sales, and customer support in a single package.

We have aligned our pricing with the budgets of most growing companies. Our most expensive package, the Pro, costs less than $100/month. With this plan, you get priority support, account-based marketing, pro tools, thousands of emails, unlimited contacts, and unlimited web forms. We also professionally onboard you – absolutely free of charge!
