How does Hootsy compare to other live chat type products (Drift, Qualified, Intercom, etc.)?
Drift: Drift is most known for their chatbots, and chatbot popups. They do not offer the ability to view a visitor's session in real-time and proactively engage them using live video. They also do not offer a lower priced tier for smaller companies.
Qualified: Similar to Hootsy, Qualified understands the power of live video and proactively engaging visitors. The main difference is their go-to-market strategy. Qualified targets mid-market and enterprise customers that use Salesforce, and they take all customers through a lengthy onboarding process. Unlike Hootsy, they do not have a lower priced tier for smaller companies.
Intercom: Intercom is more focused on customer support. Hootsy provides the essentials for customer support as part of our premium tier like the ability to create a help center and have the chatbot return articles in response to a visitor's questions; however, we believe sales and marketing deserve more attention. One of the greatest challenges facing all companies is the ability to bring in more customers and onboard them. We are focused on building the best solution to this problem.

Why are your prices so much lower than Drift and Qualified?
We are a lean, product obsessed team. Drift and Qualified have very large sales teams and need to charge high prices to compensate their teams. In contrast, we have a small team that use Hootsy to engage only high intent buyers on our website. This keeps our conversion rates high and costs low, which in turn allows us to keep pricing low for our users.
