If you’re looking for an alternative to Cleverly, then you have come to the right place. Salesbread has had great success with Linkedin lead Generation, as well as cold email outreach. Why? Because of our ultra-personalized approach. 

So what’s so different about Salebread, and why are we the better alternative? How do we get our clients these ideal targets? And what sets us apart from Cleverly

Keep reading to find the answer. 

 1. How is Salesbread different from Cleverly?

Salesbread was established in 2014 and for the past 8 years we have run over 500 different campaigns for clients, across various fields;  Did you know that our track record is more than one lead per day, per client. 

Here are some of the things that set us apart from Cleverly:

We personalize every single message that we send.

This is one of the biggest differences between Salesbread and Cleverly. We believe in sending a few strategically personalized connection requests on Linkedin

Our messaging system is not a robotic Linkedin automation tool, but rather real-time personalized human interaction. We would rather send a few hundred messages to carefully chosen people than thousands of messages to people who might not be a good fit.

Studies have shown that personalization works from Hubspot and Instapage:

  • Message personalization is the number one tactic used by email marketers to increase engagement rates.

  • More than 20% of marketers say personalization can improve engagement

  • 79% of consumers say they are only likely to engage with an offer if it has been personalized to reflect previous interactions the consumer has had with the brand.

 

This is how our strategy works in three simple steps:

Step 1:We use the Linkedin sales navigator to identify prospects. 

Step 2: Send them a personalized connection request

Step 3: We then send them personalized messages after they accept the invite. 

Before sending out our messages, we do a lot of research into potential prospects to make sure that they are a perfect fit for our client’s services or products. This could be by checking out their Linkedin profiles manually or searching them on Google.  

Linkedin’s data-rich filters are also excellent for identifying the perfect prospects for your campaign. 

This ensures that our leads are genuine. Even our follow up messages are not automated, but rather real human interaction. 

Your account stays safe from Linkedin spam complaints because we do not spam prospects

Another way in which Salesbread is different from Cleverly. co is that we do not send thousands of messages, which could potentially spam prospects. (Cleverly states on their landing page that they send thousands of messages to prospects each month)

The problem with sending thousands of Linkedin messages is that people often ignore them, especially if the messages are generic templates. People can spot these from a mile away, and many times they just hit delete. 

Besides this, Linkedin does not appreciate spam, therefore your account could end up getting blocked. So the best alternative would be to avoid companies that spam prospects for lead. 

If you’re sending thousands of messages to the wrong prospects, you are just wasting valuable time and money. 

Get alerts on new leads.

Cleverly.co expects you to keep checking your Linkedin inbox daily or by the hour, leaving you hoping to find new leads that come in.  

With Salesbread, you don’t have to do that. We will send you an email or a text, if you prefer, so that you will be alerted every time a new reply comes in that is ready for your attention. This saves you hundreds of hours every week, combing through uninterested messages that Cleverly generates.

We’ll book meetings for you.

If you give us your counter link and someone replies to you, willing to meet up, we will take the next step and book the meeting for you. 

All you have to do is handle the call. We offer a complete prospect to booking service. 

Only speak with qualified prospects thanks to our obsession on list building.

When it comes to list building, we obsess. We want to make sure that we are 100% spot on before we launch. In that way, you are not getting out-of-scope leads. We will show you versions of your lists and different steps.  We will work one on one with you to get the list perfect.

Our clients work directly with Jack, the founder of Salesbread

We also won’t hand over your campaign to an accounts manager, who might not know everything there is to know about your business; or who might not have the experience to help you find your ideal targets

Jack, the founder of Salesbread, will work directly with you. He is a leader in his field of outbound lead generation. From Linkedin outreach to cold emails, and has the experience to help you find those leads, allowing you more time to close them. 

Jack has been writing outbound sales copy since 2014, and he is also the co-host of the Cold Email Outreach Podcast. (How many founders are actively involved in their client’s campaigns? The answer? Very few.

So unless you enjoy working with rookie account executives, this sets Salesbread apart from many other business owners out there.)

 Working along with Jack is also a great opportunity for startups. With Jack’s treasure trove of knowledge, there is much that new business owners can learn about how to use social media platforms to their advantage when it comes to lead gen. 

Jack manages each and every campaign with his experienced sales team, (no white labeling) thus ensuring success.

 

2. What is the difference between Cleverly Prices and Salesbread Pricing?

We are going, to be honest with you, Salesbread is more expensive than Cleverly. 

Cleverly charges $297 per month for their Silver Done for you Lead Generation package and $497 per month for their platinum package.  

We charge $850 per hour and have 15 min free consultations with Jack.

What would you rather do? Spend less money, and have fewer leads that result in closed deals? Or spend a little bit more and be guaranteed those sales? It’s a no-brainer.     

3. Have a look at some of our testimonials and metrics below: 

Our metrics are as follows:

  • Our acceptance rate: 45%
  • Our reply rate: 39%
  • Our average lead rate per day, per client : 2 leads per day

 

Here is a simple breakdown example of how our outreach metrics work at each step…

Every day:

Connection requests sent: 35

Connection requests accepted: 10

Follow-up messages sent:9

Leads generated:1

 

Example: 

If you send 40 personalized connection requests to the right people every day, you’ll get about 10 new connections per day. And if you send those 10 new connections VERY personalized, thoughtful messages that ask for a call, you will get about a lead every day… 

How? Based on our conversion rates, it’s simple math:

Connection invite to acceptance rate: 40%

New connection reply rate: 30%

Positive reply rate: 60%

This means, if you send 35 invites per day and see those kinds of engagement rates, you can expect to generate 1 lead per day. No sponsored content or worrying about other social media platforms are necessary.

Take a look at the stats from 3 different LinkedIn outreach campaigns we ran for our clients: 

Client #1

47 % of our Linkedin leads connected out of all connection requests that were sent. 
17 % was the number of replies we received after connecting

 

Client #2

36 % connected out of all connection requests that were sent. 
11% was the total percentage of replies after connecting.

 

Client #3
46 % of prospects connected out of all connection requests that were sent.
39 % was the total number of leads who replied after connecting

 

This is a proven strategy that we know works because we’ve been focused on optimization of this approach since 2014. If you would like to read more about our proven Linkedin outreach strategy, click here

Here are some testimonials, if you would like to read more check out our Linkedin page

Testimonial 1: Mike Lanni VP Sales, DirechtechLabs

“SalesBread is a very responsive partner that drove:

  1. Hundreds of new industry contacts
  2. A positive result of 7% Qualified Leads to New Opportunities
  3. Helped us understand what marketing content the prospects respond the most to. 

I recommend using them.”

Testimonial 2: Clark Lagemann Co-Founder of MedPro Wellness

“Jack is incredible to work with and within two months of getting started we had generated over 100 new leads for our business. I’d highly recommend working with him as you’ll find (like we did) that he will be a valuable part of your outreach strategy.”

Testimonial 3: Jay Koontz Founder & Developer

“Ace-up-my-sleeve for cold outreach campaigns. It’s easy to feel defeated when your response rate means you need to blast 100+ people just for a single appointment, but Jack pulls you out of that and teaches you how to write meaningful messages that don’t spam people–and receive an actual response. That’s both making my business better and the world a bit better. Highly recommended.”

Testimonial 4: Andre Domanski Chief Executive Officer At Get Sales Meetings

“Jack provided great value for me through his podcast (I’ve watched all episodes in a couple weeks!). I had no option than to buy his course. He has a great mix of skills that makes him one of the best in the field of cold outreach. I wish there were more courses because I know Jack is great at what he does.”

Testimonial 5: Simon Webb

“Jack’s deep knowledge of his subject and the speed with which he can pick up the essence of a perfect cold email is really impressive. He’s generous to a tee… and knows the technical side of deliverability inside out (which, frankly, is an ever-changing minefield!). Having reviewed and revised an email campaign with me, I know I 100% have the best chance of success for my client. If you want to make sure your emails are actually going to land in the inbox and get replies, talk to Jack…”

Testimonial 6: Paul Sanders 

“I consulted with Jack on how to construct/improve a couple cold email outreach campaigns. Would highly recommend! Not only is he a great person to work with but he has a deep understanding of his craft. From email personalization to sequences and CRMs Jack is your man. I would not hesitate to use his services again. (In fact, that’s exactly what I’m doing!) I’m looking forward to a long term profitable relationship.”

Testimonial 7: Chris Brooks

“We use outbound email as a critical step in our business processes. I hired Jack to help us figure out how to manage deliverability risks, improve open rates and improve our messaging within the emails themselves. He was able to help us on the purely technical end (think SPF, DKIM and DMARC records), find ways to lower our cost of verifying email addresses, and he crushed it on helping us tweak our messaging. If email is part of your business, I’d recommend that you have a long conversation with Jack.

Update: We tracked the conversion rate on the new messaging that Jack recommended — it more than doubled our previous conversion rate across 4 campaigns where we ran an a/b test.”

Imagine getting 2 genuine leads a day? You can’t get these kinds of results with robotic lead generation tools  Zopto, Active Campaign or even Kennected;
Personalization is our secret to success.
