Considering a SharpSpring alternative?

SharpSpring is a marketing automation platform that allows businesses to manage their multiple marketing channels in one place and suitable for small, mid-sized companies and digital agencies.

VBOUT is an excellent alternative to SharpSpring because it’s suitable for any business size and marketing agencies and doesn’t require consultancy and extensive training.

Here’s a comparison between SharpSpring and VBOUT which shows the difference between both in terms of features, pricing and onboarding.

Email marketing

VBOUT allows you to import and manage unlimited contacts into their platform. You can also update your communication preferences by choosing which list(s) you would like to subscribe to or unsubscribe. SharpSpring charges you based on the number of contacts in their database and pricing increases as you add more. Also, for merge tags, you can add an unsubscribe link at the footer of your emails, but the option for your contacts to update their communication preferences is not available.

Marketing automation

VBOUT’s automation builder allows you to drag and drop ready-made email templates that you can use to create automated workflows. You can also create other automated messages such as browser push notifications and SMS messaging using Twilio. SharpSpring's automation builder doesn’t have ready-made automated templates and browser push notifications.
