🪓 Ax the “Success Tax”

Other SaaS (Software as a Service) CRM platforms will charge you more as your list grows.

When using Groundhogg CRM & Marketing Automation you will never be limited on the amount of anything! Unlike other SaaS platforms.

💽 You own your data!

The reality of SaaS CRMs is that you pay, and pay, and pay, and you invest all this money into a system to help your business thrive, but it can be taken away at a moments notice.

Putting your data in a SaaS CRM is like renting an apartment, but with less protection and stingier landlords. You can get evicted at any time, for any reason. There is no recourse.

This leaves your business exposed. What would happen to your business if your CRM was turned off?

With Groundhogg you actually own your data! No one expect you can make impactful changes.

نقد و بررسی‌ها

جنوری 28, 2024
I have been using Groundhogg for just over a year now and it is my first experience of creating and using a CRM, full stop. This means that the automation processes did not exactly come intuitively to me and I'm still learning! As someone who has not had knowledge of working with a CRM system before a couple of things stand out. Firstly, Adrian and the team at Groundhogg are not standing still and "resting on their laurels". The capabilities of the system have been extended and improved several times in the year that I've been working with it, including a couple of big improvements. Secondly the quality of Support is up there with the best of all the software developers that I've come across. I'm really happy I came across and chose Groundhogg to power our CRM.
دسمبر 18, 2023
You aren't buying a product, you are getting a partner in your marketing efforts. Adrian is awesome and the product delivers in every way. I'm no longer worried about rising costs every few months as I grow my list and the integrations within the WordPress world make me feel more confident I am maximizing my efforts.
دسمبر 14, 2023
I was looking into a CRM option for my business and looking for something that would connect to my WooCommerce site. In a couple of Facebook groups Groundhogg's name kept coming up from happy customers. I did a bunch of reading and watching videos from Groundhogg and decided to make the move and it has been a great experience. Their team is extremely helpful, Adrian sets up an onboarding call with you, and they will install for free on one website. Couldn't ask for a better experience!
نوامبر 21, 2023
I've been using Groundhogg for several years now after switching from a much more expense option. Groundhogg is a fantastic solution for our needs and does everything I would expect from a first class CRM.
نوامبر 21, 2023
We switched from Zoho to Groundhogg and never looked back. Much better price-value ratio, very friendly and helpful support, open for new feature requests. We love to work with people who love their work, just like us - it just shows in everything they do.
