Alternative to HoneyBook

While HoneyBook is a solid solution for small businesses, there are some limitations to what it can offer. So, if you're looking for software that can automate your entire workflow, Better Proposals might be the better choice for you. Let's take a look at some key differences between HoneyBook and Better Proposals so you can see why.

Proposals

Depending on the plan you choose, we both offer an unlimited amount of proposals per month. However, the differences start to appear as soon as you look at templates and the content library.

With Better Proposals, you get access to over 200 premade document templates. And we're not talking just design - all of our templates come pre-written as well. Besides proposals, you can find templates for contracts, sign-off sheets, quotes, statements of work, and brochures. And if you don't love absolutely everything about them, don't worry. They're all easily customizable.

What's more, Better Proposals comes with proposal analytics. For you, that means knowing exactly when your proposal was received, opened, read, printed, forwarded, and signed. And if you want to take it a step further, you can always integrate live chat software. That way, your clients can give you instant feedback, making changes to proposals less time-consuming for you both.

When it comes to HoneyBook and proposal templates, you'll have to put in much more work to give them a wow factor. Aside from having to create your own templates, the way they're saved in your account can sometimes be confusing.

For example, each of your proposals needs to be associated with a Project. This means you'll first need to find or create a project that requires a proposal, then modify or create a template, and finally send it. And if you want to use that template again in the future, you'll also need to remember which Project it was originally connected to. That's because the changes you made in the first place won't be saved in the original template.

CRM integrations

To make sure your proposal creation process is as automated as possible, Better Proposals offers 16 CRM integrations. From Hubspot and Salesforce to Zoho, we've made sure all your favorite tools are at your disposal. HoneyBook, on the other hand, doesn't offer any CRM integrations, meaning you'll need to input all your data manually.

Project management integrations

On our list of over 40 integrations, Better Proposals also offers a variety of project management tools. That's because we know that, no matter the size of your team, it's important that everyone stays on the same page. And while HoneyBook claims to help you keep track of all your projects in one place, they don't integrate with project management tools. At the end of the day, that means that your team will need to migrate from an existing system they're comfortable with to something completely new.

Pricing

Seeing that HoneyBook's lowest plan starts at $9/month, as opposed to Better Proposals' $19, it might seem as the more affordable option at first. But, once you look at the fine print, HoneyBook's lowest plan is only sustainable for so long. For example, there's no yearly pricing available with it and you lose support after six months, meaning you'll have to switch to the next plan at $39/month.

Better Proposals, on the other hand, offers yearly subscriptions on all plans, letting you save money no matter the features you need. In addition to that, we offer a free trial no matter where you're from, whereas HoneyBook only allows it for those based in the USA and Canada.

Payment integrations

When it comes to getting paid, depending on the type of business you run, it might be easier with Better Proposals. We offer PayPal, Stripe, and GoCardless integrations, meaning you can get paid from almost anywhere in the world.

With HoneyBook, things aren't that simple. While they do allow you to collect payment through their QuickBooks integration, there are some limitations. For example, you can't integrate QuickBooks Self-Employed, QuickBooks Desktop or multiple QuickBooks accounts. So, if you don't use a version of QuickBooks that's supported, you'll need to use another tool to collect payment.
