HubSpot vs. Sendinblue (now Brevo) pricing: Don't pay more to grow

HubSpot boasts a free plan, but it comes with many limitations and trimmed-down versions of the features. It includes only 2,000 email sends a month and storing up to 1 million contacts. However, to be able to do anything with them, you need to pay for HubSpot Marketing Hub, starting at $50 for 1,000 contacts. For every 1,000 contacts you want to email, you’ll have to pay additional $50/month!

In comparison, Brevo’s free plan gives you unlimited contact storage and 9,000 emails a month. The Starter plan is $25 for 20,000 emails sent.

Brevo’s pricing is designed for small and growing businesses, allowing you to store unlimited contacts. Choose a package that meets your emailing needs without worrying about the price increasing as you grow your subscriber list.

Comparing paid plans: HubSpot vs. Sendinblue (now Brevo) better value for money

If you’re looking to use marketing automation workflows, A/B testing, or dynamic content for personalized emails, with HubSpot Marketing Hub you’ll need the Professional package. This costs a hefty $890/month for 2,000 contacts along with a $3,000 onboarding fee.

For every 5,000 contacts on top, you’ll have to pay $250/month extra. HubSpot also offers various paid add-ons to their Professional package if you want to increase certain limits.

Brevo’s Business Plan costs only $65/month for 20,000 emails. The plan includes advanced marketing automation features and multichannel options, giving you better value for money.

It’s a big price jump from HubSpot’s $50 Starter package to $890 for Professional when compared to Brevo’s more accessible plans. You might end up paying for tools like SEO, blogging, CMS, and social media that you don’t need. Brevo, on the other hand, offers separate plans for features like Chat and Sales CRM. That way, you only pay for the tools you need, when you need them.

Another option are the HubSpot bundles that combine their various products into more budget-friendly toolkits starting at $50/month for 1,000 contacts. Keep in mind that they require yearly commitment and come with a complex pricing structure.

Brevo Sales Platform vs HubSpot CRM

HubSpot Sales Hub is known as the default CRM software for large sales teams. However, it presents quite a steep learning curve for small businesses. When you’re just building your sales process, a user-friendly CRM suite can make all the difference.

Access similar sales pipeline and contact management features on Brevo’s Sales Platform — and it’s a free CRM! Deal management, revenue forecasting, task management, sales automation and full integration with the other marketing tools on the platform are all free for 10 users.

Meanwhile, HubSpot charges $1,000/month for 10 reps plus an onboarding fee of $750.

And on top of it all, to be able to provide customer support, you need yet another one of their apps, the Customer Service Hub with its own pricing and features. On Brevo, you get live chat on the free plan and can simply add advanced features on the paid plans.
