What started as humble beginnings soon became a fast-evolving platform for companies targeting LinkedIn’s vast B2B network.
In no time, customers were flooding in, and manually keeping track of everything was a big no-no. Thus their quest for a CRM solution that can help manage their huge contact database began.
Initially, they opted for HubSpot – the pioneer and market leader in the CRM industry.
Though HubSpot was a great platform for Business Ninjas, they could leverage the power only when they did things the HubSpot way. The free and affordable plans weren’t nearly enough for their business needs.
As Business Ninjas captured and generated more contacts, it was time to upgrade HubSpot to a higher-tiered plan. Their team needed more powerful tools, which were only available in the Enterprise plan.
This move drained their marketing and operational budget. They had to dish out thousands of $$$ every month – a 10X increase in marketing costs.
Total cost for the first year
In addition, Business Ninjas were contractually bound with an annual commitment, which meant they had to pay for the whole year even if they wanted to quit the very first month.
The sheer cost of using the platform prompted Business Ninjas to search for a more affordable alternative.
Business Ninjas’ search for a suitable alternative spanned several weeks: they needed a platform that had the features their team already utilized but without the massive price tag.
Perhaps the most challenging aspect of their search was to find an integrated all-in-one CRM solution to unify all their teams and achieve a 360-degree view of their customers.
And the search ended with EngageBay.
EngageBay offered most of the enterprise-level features HubSpot had and fulfilled Business Ninjas' greatest need: affordability. They immediately fell in love with the platform and – within days – were able to migrate data and onboard their team to the platform (for free).
This move helped them cut their marketing costs by an unbelievable 82%!
