Waalaxy for some reason is the rebranding of the previous ProspectIn. It makes a lot of claims by writing that it is "the #1 tool for LinkedIn & cold email prospecting" and that "other players on the market just can't hold up" and in fact it is a very popular tool especially in France from where its founders come from.
Waalaxy has a long list of "pre-made" templates for running marketing campaigns and outreach using LinkedIn and email. Most of them have overlapping features and funny names that are sometimes out of context. The lack of full campaign customization isn't a big deal (they say) because one of these pre-made will likely fit your purpose. Ultimately the problem is finding the model you want.
In Jobin the multiplatform messaging campaign can be completely customized and edited from scratch by the User.
An important role in both Waalaxy and Jobin is the integration with LinkedIn and the automation of the most common operations such as sending connection invitations or visit profiles, extracting email, etc.
In Waalaxy you don't have filters for your prospects, so you need to select people with LinkedIn and put them in a list for your campaign.
This is fine but definitely not at the level of control offered by Jobin where the amount of filtering possibilities is astounding and includes filters such as the date of your last message, whether that person is your connection, availability of Email or Tel, any of yours custom tags, skills and even if it's 'open to work' .
If you buy the top tier plan at €99/month,
Waalaxy allows you to make an average of 16 LinkedIn connections/day
(no more than 500 connections/month) and in total you have a limit of 2500 operations/month
(profile visits + messages + invitations) 2500 Quotas.
If you do not purchase the Top Business Plan you will be limited to only about 3 invitations/day (100 invitations/month) and in total no more than 400 operations/month between profile visits + messages + invitations or 100 Quotas.
Also, why does Waalaxy charge credits/quotas for all LinkedIn operations such as profile visits, messages, invitations? 😏.
Overall, this isn't much if you want to be considered an Automation Tool, in fact, viewing 40 profiles a day and sending them messages can be done manually by any professional LinkedIn user. So, if that user doesn't want to buy Waalaxy's top plan, automation consists of less than 4 connections a day which really isn't enough.
As Waalaxy suggests, going further is only possible by purchasing additional seats and using additional LinkedIn accounts. In other words: pay more 🙄.
In the case of Jobin there is a real possibility to overcome LinkedIn's limitations by using its bypass feature.
With a Jobin account, even the Free one, you can seriously build a solid network and nurture it at scale. This isn't just within LinkedIn.
This is also supported by the fact that Jobin also helps you in search, manage, rank and outreach your prospects.
In Jobin the throttling and limitation of any automation has a default value. For example, the default connection invitations setting is 200/day, but you can set any value including unlimited LinkedIn invitations.
Waalaxy maintains lists of prospects that should be prepared within LinkedIn. Hence, no further filtering or segmentation is possible.
In comparison, Jobin has a robust profile data-base with hundreds of data-nodes and fields that allows for filtering and ranking at the level of an advanced ATS. Suitable for to the demanding requirements of Recruiters, during the screening of their Candidates.
In general Waalaxy does not allow you to control much over its operations. If you want to be a little more aware of your operations and like to monitor and fine-tune your campaigns, you'll like Jobin more.
On Waalaxy the level of details in the profiles is limited to the basic name, surname, company.
With only this information available it is not possible to use Waalaxy to fine tune your target audience and perform some sort of pre-screening of your prospects. It goes without saying that the only possible 'personalization' of messages is limited to the basic name, role, company.
The formatting of the messages you can send is also limited to text and you can't have links or attachments, for example. You cannot send HTML messages with Waalaxy.
Perhaps Waalaxy's biggest limitation is the inability to send InMails and any LinkedIn messages but they claim this is in development.
In Jobin you can send all, Emails, LinkedIn messages, InMails and even personalized LinkedIn connection invitations.
These multi-channel outreach functionalities in Jobin can be handled by the fully customizable Advanced Campaign builder,
and for each prospect you can view a full emails and LinkedIn messaging threads plus any system operation
in the screen that Jobin calls Interactions Timeline.
With that on display it becomes quick and easy to engage in valuable conversations with your audience.
It is important to note that this "Interactions Timeline" in Jobin, synchronized with LinkedIn, can also be shared on a team level.
Both Jobin and Waalaxy are able to manage team collaboration. Waalaxy has a centralized dashboard where activities from multiple accounts are merged together.
In Jobin the team (or teams) are organized into "WorkGroups" and different members can combine their efforts to create a unified list of leads and share work to nurture and convert common prospects.
Members of the same WorkGroup also share the "interaction timeline" so that everyone knows what the past communication status and
other interactions between this prospect and any member of your team are.
This avoids the risk of double messaging or asking the same questions twice. No more wasting time among the team to synchronize work because every interaction with common leads is shared in a unified timeline.
For the email finder Waalaxy relies on an external provider (Dropcontact) where
you must provide your subject's name+surname+company.
This means that you only have business emails which are best guess from
an element permutator plus validation.
Not the best condition if you are a Recruiter and you want to send your confidential messages with job offers to your candidate's the private email ... 😅
Jobin provides you with all publicly available emails and contact information for Free, because they are included in the free Forever Jobin sourcing tool, and only charges for those that are not available.
Jobin has complete management of both work and personal emails with automatic detection and their correct use according to your messaging needs. In case of missing email it could be found on request even during an ongoing campaign.
When Waalaxy gives you access to an email finder only in the top Business plan at 64€/month with only the business emails, and Jobin gives both business and private emails in the Free plan and only charges the not public ones. The comparison is a no-brainer.
Jobin's email lookup is very user-friendly as you can get contact information (emails and phones) as an individual request (as other tools do), but you can also enable an Automatic lookup during campaigns or a Bulk Update with automatic contact lookup.
Waalaxy has a Free plan where you can contact about 15 people per day (100/week) and the Basic plan is limited to one-action campaigns.
Scale up is based on multiplying the active LinkedIn accounts in your team, including creating of some 'artificial' accounts. Each of these accounts must be purchased separately. This increase the total cost per single outreach opportunity because you need to purchase multiple subscriptions to scale up 🙄.
Jobin takes a different approach. Jobin provides a functional Free Forever plan, then, you can have a 14-day trial to test
one or more premium solutions upgrades.
The prices for each individual solution are displayed and for each of them you can choose the plan level that best suits your current business needs. Transparency and flexibility in purchasing only what you really need with the advantage of upgrading and downgrading at any time.
Waalaxy has a habit of promoting their features well in advance, even before they actually have them. So be careful because sometimes "what you read" is NOT "what you get" 😉 You should check with their Sales Representatives.
Both Jobin and Waalaxy save a lot of time for any recruiter and professional who needs to communicate on a large scale using both LinkedIn messaging, connection invitation an emails.
Jobin maintains a full-profile database at ATS/CRM level that includes advanced filtering, ranking and pipelines workflow management. All this is missing in Waalaxy which instead relies on integration with external software.
The sourcing capabilities in Jobin are complemented with an advanced LinkedIn automation package. In Waalaxy sourcing is limited to a basic scraping tool used as list builder.
Where the two products differ the most is Waalaxy's near-useless free plan.
Jobin has a fully functional free plan and offers you a 14-day free trial of any solution upgrade you might want while using it.
This modularity and flexibility is a great money saver because you can only upgrade the functions you really need, and when you need them.
Jobin manages full profiles (which include career history, skills and achievements) and allows
tagging and annotation as well as pipeline management for all your contacts.
In Jobin you also have the ability to filter, rank, auto update and select groups from your contacts for proper inclusion in messaging campaigns that simply does not exist in Waalaxy.
Jobin is an all-in-one package with multiple modular solutions to find, screen and outreach people with email and LinkedIn. Waalaxy focuses on the email outreach and pipeline management.
