Lusha is a multifunctional tool that allows you to capture information from your prospects. It evolves on the B2B prospecting market.
Established for several years in the United States and specializing in data collection, Lusha is far from competing with its competitors and especially with its best alternative recently released: Waalaxy.
In this comprehensive article, you will understand why our tool is far better than Lusha, in every way.
Features: Waalaxy outperforms Lusha by far
Lusha offers 3 main features that are very basic
- Email and phone number scrapping.
- Export of leads.
- Contact segmentation by filter.
There are also a few other features, accessible in the more expensive plans, but very little useful for prospecting effectively.
On the other hand, thanks to our Waalaxy tool, you will be able to do much more like (in addition to the Lusha features):
- Contact your prospects via multi-channel (LinkedIn, Emailing, Twitter, etc.).
- Create automated cross-channel prospecting sequences.
- Perform ultrapersonalization through advanced data segmentation.
- Set up intelligent triggers to boost your ROI
- Native integration with your CRM.
- You can also retrieve phone numbers.
By the way, let’s talk about phone numbers.
Find phone numbers with Waalaxy
You have several channels to be able to contact your prospects such as:
- Messages on LinkedIn.
- The famous phone number.
To do this, we will do what we call data scraping. That is to say that we will “scrape” the data. To do this, we will retrieve data from LinkedIn (if it has been filled in, of course).
To recover your data with Waalaxy, you can find the whole procedure in this article.
The big plus of Waalaxy, and that Lusha does not have
Waalaxy has a prospecting software integrated to our data collection tool. So, there is no need to export all your contacts to any CRM.
Here with Waalaxy, you have everything at your fingertips: collection in our pre-integrated CRM and omnichannel prospecting.
The best part? It’s that the user experience (UX) within the Waalaxy tool is much more developed, giving you unmatched ease of use Want a tool in your language, except English? Avoid Lusha. However, Waalaxy is a tool designed in France and available in several languages: French, English, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, etc. Finally, here is the big plus of Waalaxy, and that Lusha doesn’t have: the possibility to collect data on your prospects , in a much more important way.
Indeed, Lusha allows you to extract only the email and phone number of your leads. Here with Waalaxy, the possibilities are endless. You can contact them via email, phone as well as LinkedIn, Twitter, postal mail, and much more.
Where Lusha used to do 10% of the work, Waalaxy does the other 90%.

- D+3: send a personalized postal letter.
- And the possibilities are endless!
Waalaxy features in detail
In this section, we will discuss three things in detail:
- Email finder.
- LinkedIn prospecting.
- Cold mailing.
Well yes, you can automatically find your prospects’ emails with Waalaxy. You will be able to retrieve the professional emails of your prospects and we insist on the word “professional” and succeed in enriching your CRM.
To do this, it’s very simple, you’ll need to use a sequence to reach prospects who might not accept your connection request.
These emails are verified thanks to the Dropcontact integration (we get the firstname.lastname@example.org) and therefore, RGPD compliant.
In many of our articles, we talk about how LinkedIn is the biggest BtoB database the earth 🪐 has ever borne (yes, we don’t weigh our words). But on top of that this database is regularly updated thanks to the members of the platform. Yes a free platform that updates itself regularly, it’s incredible.
Thanks to Waalaxy, you will be able to prospect hundreds of people (depending on the plan you subscribe to). But one thing you should know is that Waalaxy has a free plan that allows you to use almost all the features (almost).
For example, you’ll be able to prospect up to 100 people per week (without spending a dime and without putting in your banking information and that’s pretty crazy).
Cold mailing still has a long way to go. We often think wrongly that emails are no longer useful and yet… It remains one of the most powerful acquisition channels 💪.
Find your sequence and send your emails to your future prospects. By the way, did you know that it is recommended to send your email before a LinkedIn message? This allows your target to recognize you when you approach them on the professional social network.
Lusha is too expensive for basic functions
Already the big black point of Lusha is that the freemium versionis really very limited. Do you have to pay to fully test a tool (out of beta), and see if it fits you? This is not our vision at Waalaxy.
We think it’s important to have a complete tool with a lot of features that is accessible to anyone. For example, beginners in sales prospecting certainly don’t want to invest in expensive subscriptions. Especially not at the beginning.
Lusha offers a freemium version, which is a good thing, which 2 things block:
- Only 5 monthly actions are available as credits.
- Impossible to export contacts and to prospect.
In the end, retrieving a handful of data without being able to process them immediately, what’s the point? Do you see the difference with Waalaxy? There is no doubt which one to choose. You know deep down which one is the best tool.
Lusha is an expensive tool (as you understood, the price doesn’t justify its features) that starts at $99 per month for the “Professional” version, then $199 per month for the “Premium” plan and finally a custom plan for enterprise.
With Waalaxy, you know that the features are much more elaborate and advanced. And with the Waalaxy touch, since we are the company that created both tools. So, cheaper and so much better than Lusha.
A version that is too limited in use
Lusha is a tool that should be added to other tools to get an efficient prospecting. Nevertheless, the addition of subscriptions can easily be very expensive.
You are therefore limited in the possibilities with Lusha.
Whereas with Waalaxy, the field of possibilities is open with an all-in-one tool to prospect at a world-class level.
The best alternative to Lusha – what should we remember?
In the end, the real question is “should you use Lusha for your B2B prospecting?”.
The answer: no.
Here are the answers that prove it:
- It is a solution with too few features.
- It is too limited in use.
- It is too expensive for a $99 subscription.
- It’s less worked on the user experience.
On the other hand, we encourage you to discover our Waalaxy tool . We are confident in our new software because
- We enable multi-channel prospecting to gain trust from your prospects much faster.
- We offer deep analysis and segmentation of your prospects’ data to better communicate with them.
- We have a real workflow system to automate your commercial prospecting in an intelligent way.
- Plus, we have chat support!
Now you know that Waalaxy is the best alternative to Lusha! 🚀
