Here's a simple comparison between Gist and Hubspot, including the differences in features and experience.
1. Gist offers an affordable Knowledge Base solution.
Hubspot offers a Knowledge Base solution. The only problem is, you will have to pay atleast $400 per month to access it for your business.
With a Gist Knowledge Base you can:
- Create rich articles with media (photos and videos).
- Have a fully-searchable database of articles.
- Create a tool for your support team to help customers even faster.
With all the Gist offers at a much lower price point, it's difficult to justify the Hubspot price point.
2. Gist offers a complete email marketing suite at a fraction the cost.
In order to get the completely unlocked email marketing features of Hubspot, you’ll have to pay around $800 per month.
Gist offers comparable features for literally a fraction of that cost.
3. Overall Price and Easy of Use.
Both platforms are powerful and offer a lot of the same features, but two factors put Gist on top.
1. Overall Affordability (Speaks for itself)
2. Implementation: Getting HubSpot online takes some doing. There are agencies and specialists who are trained specifically to set their stuff up — for a fee.
