What are the similarities and differences between Waalaxy and Snov.io?

Before choosing the tool best suited to your strategy, you need to explore the different features and select the one that best suits your needs!

1) Automated email prospecting campaigns

Before anything else, let’s take a look at how to create an email campaign on our two tools. 👀

How do I use Waalaxy?

Go to the home page, click on “Start a campaign” and select “Browse sequences”.

➡️ The sequence classification is designed to guide you through the process:

  • Each sequence is assigned to a level of difficulty, enabling you to progress without having to engage in overly complex procedures.
  • The sequences are also organized by theme (promotion, recruitment, networking, affiliation, etc.) to help you choose the ones that best match your objectives. In this case, we’ll be looking at the e-mail sequences.
  • Finally, an overview by theme and difficulty level gives you a clear view of all available Waalaxy sequences.

Once you’ve created your campaign, you’ll be able to add your prospects! You’ll see just after 😉.

How do I use Snov.io?

Let’s take a closer look at how to create a campaign at Snov.io 👀

As with Waalaxy, you go to “campaign”, which is fairly intuitive. You can choose between a template and customization from A to Z, a bit like with LinkelHelper. I chose a template, the simplest.

Compared with Waalaxy, the choice of template is a little more difficult, as there are no levels. You can access the schematics, which at first glance seem rather complex. There’s no associated explanation. What’s more, there are only 11 sequences, compared with over 30 in Waalaxy. This figure is due to the fact that Waalaxy offers multi-channel prospecting, combining emailing and LinkedIn prospecting messages.

Now that your campaign has been chosen, let’s move on to the list of prospects.👯‍♀️

2) Email Finder comparison

Both of the tools we’re looking at offer E-mail Finder functionality. To evaluate their respective performance, we carried out a test on 120 profiles to determine which of them is the most effective at collecting e-mail addresses 📧

Before that, a definition is in order: What is an E-mail Finder? 🧐

💡

It’s a tool that lets you retrieve your prospects’ professional emails. It enables you to enrich your CRM automatically.

Waalaxy Email Finder

To set up an Email Finder campaign with Waalaxy, simply click on “Start a campaign” and select “Email Finder”.

You can choose to prospect in 3 ways:

  • 🥇 From your lists, for this you need to have already run a campaign.
  • 🥈 From an auto-import.
  • 🥉 From LinkedIn.

For this research, we have since chosen to extract leads from LinkedIn, as Snov.io also offers this service.

Thanks to the filters “ Security anti-duplicates Team and Clean my import” Waalaxy offers you only the prospects whose email has been found so you don’t waste time sorting, so if you want 120 emails, you’ll get 120 emails.😎

For the sake of comparison, we’ve removed these filters to be on an equal footing with Snov.io. Without this manipulation, Waalaxy would not have imported the “false positives” as Snov.io does, and the comparison would have been distorted.

The results are clear: 39.2% for Waalaxy versus 23. 3% for Snov.io.🤩

The proof in the pudding 😇 :

Waaalxy: 47 addresses have been found! 😉

The Snov.io Email Finder

As far as the Snov.io Email Finder is concerned, you’ll need to download an extension to scrape customers. There’s one to search for emails online and another to find them on LinkedIn: LinkedIn Prospect Finder.👀

The latter requires you to download a folder and add it to your Google Chrome extensions. This can be a tedious process if you’ve never done it before. It took me a good five minutes! 🧐

Once downloaded, you can go to LinkedIn. Unlike Waalaxy, the Snov.io Email Finder has no filters to avoid duplicates or remove invalid e-mails. You can change the number of pages you want to scrape in the next step. You won’t be able to choose an exact number as with Waalaxy. 😒

Once the Snov.io Email Finder is finished, there is no graphic, but a color code that explains :

🌑 In gray: The email was not found.

🟢 Green: The email is valid.

🟡 Yellow: The email may be valid.

🔴 In red: The email is invalid.

For the calculation, I only used the result of valid emails, as for Waalaxy. I found 23.3% of emails found, i.e. 28 addresses.

Waalaxy’s score is significantly higher than Snov.io’s Email Finder.🏆

Interestingly, Snov.io also offers an Email Finder on Google. In other words, you can retrieve the e-mail addresses available on a website. However, it only retrieves business addresses. Most of the time, you can find these directly on LinkedIn…😉

3) Personalizing email prospecting messages

You’ve chosen your campaign, created your prospect list, now it’s time to write your e-mail! ✍🏻

Editorial staff at Waalaxy

On the Waalaxy side, once your prospects have been added, you can edit the e-mail and connect directly. You can use your professional e-mail address to receive replies and, above all, so that it’s not perceived as junk mail by the inbox. 📬

You can personalize your email with different variables, emojis… 😊 You have the option of saving your email as a template for future use.

💡 Once your email is ready, don’t forget to synchronize your email with Waalaxy.

Editorial staff at Snov.io ✍️

To start writing the e-mail, click on the corresponding sequence bubble. 💬 You can write it yourself, or take inspiration from the templates provided. 📄

You can also personalize your email by adding :

  • Variables. 📈
  • Emojis. 😃
  • Attachments. 📎
  • Links. 🔗

You also have features that can be useful depending on your objectives:

  • Email AI. 🤖
  • Source code. 💻
  • Unsubscribe link… 🚫
💡

At Waalaxy, we don’t recommend using links or images as your “first message of approach”. Instead, we advise you to write short, light content without links or photos that sound too commercial. This will give you better results!

4) Tracking responses and engagement rates

With Waalaxy

Once you’ve launched your campaigns,examining the results is crucial to your strategy! But how do you do this? That’s what we’re going to find out. 👀

On Waalaxy, when you access the home page, you’ll find a dashboard and the performance indicators you need for your analysis. These statistics are classified by channel used:

  • 📊 LinkedIn results (blue boxes).
  • 📊 Email results (purple boxes).

You can also refine your analysis by applying two filters:

  • 1️⃣ Launch period.
  • 2️⃣ Select the campaign to be displayed.

You’ll also find them at the bottom of the home page. You can view the campaigns as a whole, or study them separately. The results are easy to understand and study 😎

With Snov.io

The data is not available on the home page, as there is none. To access the interface, we need to launch a campaign. The data interface is fairly easy to understand.

You can see :

  • 📇 Total number of people contacted.
  • ✅ If they have all been contacted.
  • 📬 Response rate.
  • 📉 Churn rate.
  • 📈 The opening rate…

We also have a view with all our campaigns, but there’s no option to see a result with all of them.

5) Connection and compatibility with other tools

To take full advantage of all available functions, you can connect your software to CRM (Customer Relationship Management) systems.

Let’s take a look at how to proceed. 👀

The Waalaxy example

This step is dreaded by many on the majority of automation interfaces on the market 😰…. But, fear not: with Waalaxy, you can easily connect to the following CRMs: 👇🏼

  • Hubspot.
  • NoCRM.
  • Pipedrive.
  • Salesforce.
  • Zoho.

Wait, there’s more! You can also integrate the following software directly into your campaigns: 👇🏼

  • Airtable.
  • Sendiblue.
  • Sellsy.
  • Axonaut.
  • Google Sheets.

👑 And to top it all off, you’ll discover that synchronization is easy to understand and use thanks to our dedicated article!

All you have to do is take the plunge! 😇

The example of Snov.io

With Snov.io, there are a multitude of possible integrations whether it’s project management software such as Slack or scheduling software such as Calendly. However, for the purposes of this article, we’re only going to look at CRM tools.

Installing them is pretty straightforward: Snov.io has set up a tutorial for each extension.

You have at your disposal :

  • Hubspot.
  • Sales force.
  • Zoho CRM.
  • Pipedrive.
  • Close.
  • Freshsales Suite.

🚨 Some integrations are only available with the premium version.

The tool also has its own CRM. It looks like this. You find all the steps of the prospect, you add his information, his cost… in order to have a clear follow-up.👀

Now that we’ve finished our little tour of features, let’s move on to our UX/UI opinion of the two products. ⭐️

6) Ease of use and user interface

Waalaxy side

Waalaxy’s interface is immediately appealing for its clarity and intuitiveness. The consistency of its graphic charter, with matching pictograms and pleasing colors, instantly facilitates navigation and understanding of the different sections. 😇

Exploring the entire interface, it’s clear that Waalaxy has focused on visual consistency for ease of use!

In your prospect lists, color-coding status and action icons helps you quickly locate information:

  • 🌑 Gray: not connected.
  • 🟠 Orange: waiting.
  • 🔵 Blue: connected.

💡 To help you, a description of each icon appears when you hover your mouse over it.

For « Email Finder », Waalaxy uses credits. To check your balance, simply click on your name, which gives you quick access to your quotas! 👀

Once again, the main advantage of Waalaxy is its simplicity! No need to complicate your life. For example, thanks to a 1 to 3 rating system, you can see at a glance where you stand in terms of performance! 😉

Snov.io side

The interface is user-friendly, with consistent colors and pictograms. There’s not too much text, which makes for a rather pleasant interface. It also makes navigation easier. 😊

However, beginners can easily be impressed, as there are “many” icons compared with Waalaxy. There are also two menus, which can lead to confusion. 🤔

As with Waalaxy, there are color codes to guide you, as with the email finder’s prospect status. There’s also a description for each icon, so you know what it’s for. 🎨

As far as email credits are concerned, unlike Waalaxy, you can’t buy them on your own. You must subscribe to the superior plan. ⬆️

7. Resources and support

You don’t have to look far, as many useful resources are directly accessible from the interface menu:

8) RGPD compliance

In the long term, Snov.io is not a very regulatory tool when it comes to RGPD. ⚖️

💡

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a European regulatory text that frames data processing equally throughout the European Union (EU). (source)

And here’s the difference:

  • Waalaxy collects the e-mail on LinkedIn only if you are connected to the person (and this works as an agreement to contact them). ✅
  • Snov.io collects e-mail from websites without the owner’s consent. ❌

Imagine, you collect and contact 1000 e-mail addresses from people who haven’t asked for anything. Many people will report you as spam 📩 and some may even start much more annoying procedures.

If you’re doing email marketing you probably know that being flagged as spam gives a bad signal to inboxes 📧 like Gmail, Yahoo, etc. Ultimately, your mails fall into spam and promotions without being read by your cold prospects. 🚫

Using a borderline data protection tool like Snov.io is not the best option. It’s even harmful 👀

9) Customer feedback and market positioning.
