Belkins io VS Salesbread – A Comprehensive Comparison

By: Jack Reamer |
 October 25, 2023 |

Most of our competitors are all big agencies. 

Meaning that they service hundreds of clients.

And this means, for you, the  client, that you are not going to be working directly  with the founder of the company who lives and breathes outreach.

They are going to be handed off to an account manager who is far less experienced than the founder of the company. 

We aren’t here to knock the competitors, but this is a reality. 

And if you need the absolute best lead generation strategy (list, messaging, etc.) you might not be okay with being  passed down to a junior account manager who has been writing copy for 6 months and is following guidelines from their boss. 

They may lack a deep understanding of what’s working right now in the world of outbound sales.

Yes, we will go into what services Belkins offers as a lead generation agency and the differences between us and them. 

But just know that if you aren’t willing to compromise and step down from working with a junior account manager you might want to work with a smaller boutique b2b lead generation agency like Salesbread, where you will work along with the founder of the company. 

Just be aware that the sales call might be with a senior account manager at the agency, but it’s important to ask, who will be writing the copy, who’s going to be discussing strategy, and who’s going to be building your list. 

And if you have a strategy question, who are you going to get on the other side to help you? 

Is it really the founder of the company?

At Salesbread we keep a handful of clients that we work closely with, between the founder and the client. 

Jack at Salesbread will write the copy for your campaigns, and build expert ultra-refined lists, strategies and outreach tactics that are going to get you the results you want.

You can read this case study here: Outbound Lead Generation Case Study: Booking Meetings with Consultants and Law Firm Owners

In the past 24 months, Salesbread has managed to generate close to 7000 qualified sales leads for our clients.

How do we do this?

Simple…

We focus on high-quality and not quantity outreach

We would rather send 100 well-written LinkedIn outreach messages to your ideal prospects, than thousands of the same generic spammy sales messages to prospects who might not be the perfect fit.

Because of this, we are seeing the following outreach stats on Linkedin:

Services

  • A done-for-you lead generation service, that includes expert list building, ultra-personalized copywriting, and 1 guaranteed sales lead per day.
  • Cold email and LinkedIn outreach
  • Sms outreach
  • Ultra-refined list-building services 
  • Expert personalized copywriting
  • Consulting

Sales Process 

It all starts with a 1 hour kick-off call… and a bit of obsessive in-depth list-building

This is where we identify the hottest prospects to go after for your business. We go beyond basic list building and identify your ideal customer profile. This is based on who your current buying customers are. 

We analyze this data and look for specific patterns between your current buyers. 

The video below explains how we do this:

The video below is an example of how we build prospecting lists for our clients.

But basically, we will ask: What do all your current buying customers have in common?

  • Are they all located in the same area?
  • Do they have similar company sizes?
  • Have they recently been funded?
  • Do they all use social media marketing?
  • Do they use the same CRM tools? Such as Hubspot, or Salesforce?
  • Which specific industry are they in? If in healthcare, is it hospitals? Clinics? Psychiatry?
  • Who is the decision maker?

Once we find the commonalities between your current buyers, it’s easier to build look-a-like lists of prospects who need what you’re selling. 

Next, we will build a list of target people at these accounts

We will then use LinkedIn Sales Navigator to find the right people at these companies to reach out to. 

Just note that Sales Nav is notorious for inaccurate data. So you have to know how to use this powerful tool the right way. 

This article: Linkedin Sales Navigator Search Tips goes into more detail on how we do this. 

We always make sure that our data is 100% accurate before our sales team even launches the campaign.  

This ensures that you get high-quality leads

We will then create personalized message drafts

Now the fun begins. We will create a series of message outlines for you to review. 

We never complicate our messages, in fact, they are very straightforward. 

But what sets us apart from many other sales development agencies out there, is that we personalize every single message for each person on the list. 

We have a personalization expert who will research each prospect and write an intro sentence specifically for the individual. 

Check out our CCQ method below:

Once the messages have been written, Jack will return to you after 24 hours with a team-approved message draft. 

You will then check that the message is perfect and on-brand. 

If you’re happy, the message will be ready for launch.

Follow-up and ask for a booked meeting

Our Sdrs then follow up in real-time. We don’t use automation when responding to a prospect.  We follow up every 3 days until we get a response. 

Normally, we follow up between 3 and 6 times. If we don’t get a reply we will add the prospect to a cold email or SMS campaign. 

Our follow-up messages include even more personalization and this ensures that we hook the prospect. 

Lastly, we always ask for a booked meeting. 

This CTA is low commitment. 

For example:

  • Are you available for a quick call?
  • Send me your calendar link and I will schedule a quick 10-minute meeting
  • Worth a quick call?

Does this work?

Close to 7000 qualified sales leads in 24 months, says it does. 

Pricing 

Salesbread offers a free 15-minute strategy call and then if you do decide to partner up with us, you can expect our services to cost less than half the price of a full-time SDR. Between 2-3k/month.
