Concierge OnBoarding - Building in Success
Basic Onboarding is required and non-refundable for all new Venntive accounts.
The secret to successfully implementing a CRM in a sales, marketing, customer service or technology management role, depends on thoughtful on-boarding.
Since every customer is unique, so's our approach to onboarding.
It begins with a questionnaire to learn about your overall CRM strategy. This is followed up with a strategic discovery and planning call. From this, we deliver a customized training plan specifically for your business and timeline for implementation in weeks , not months.
An on-boarding strategy includes, but is not limited to:
Establish a Center of Excellence (person or team) that is dedicated to overseeing decisions, streamlining processes and improving the experience.
Optimize your account architecture so it is customer centric to deliver a ‘single customer view’, enhanced by the analytics.
Deliver cost reductions in terms of overheads, time to adoption, and reducing duplication of data.
On-boarding starts at $399 for a two-hour orientation.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Contact?
A contact is any person, identified by name or email address. Our pricing is based on only the active contacts in your database. Contacts that have unsubscribed, hard bounces, or are otherwise included in your Suppression list are not figured in that calculation.
How does a free trial work?
Free trials provide you with a full version of a Venntive with a few restrictions and temporary limits on the software, like the number of emails you can send. Otherwise, you get the full experience of the depth and breadth of Venntive’s software, so you know exactly what you’re getting when you activate your account.
What is a User?
Can also be referred to as a Seat. In Venntive, any additional person, e.g. Marketing, BDRs, SDRs, Sales, Operations, that is given access to your account is a Shared Access User. The account administrator can customize and define access from one person to the next. Shared Access Users will each have their own login credentials.
Are there additional email marketing fees?
No. Email costs are tied to the number of Active Contacts. You can email the Contacts up to ten times per month. That works out to about one email every other business day. If you need to send more than that, you can send a request.
Is API access included?
Yes, Venntive has made API access standard as part of the platform. Our pricing is NOT based on API calls
What type of support is provided?
During published business hours, live chat is available via the website and within your account. Phone and webform support is included in your subscription fee to get your questions answered quickly by customer support specialists. Of course, clients are encouraged to use the extensive Help Center assets and knowledge base, the Help Bubbles throughout the platform, and the Guide Me tours for even quicker answers to questions.
Are there any overage fees?
Venntive’s pricing is designed to scale with the size of your business, so our customers are requested to begin by purchasing a level that fits their current database of Active contacts. As your database grows over time, the monthly charges will automatically reset to reflect that growth.
What is the onboarding fee?
Fees for onboarding begin at the minimum $350 and go up. Our onboarding is customized to meet each customer's unique needs.The fee is calculated after an Onboarding Discovery call. An Implementation Document is submitted for approval prior to project initiation. Factors including the number of people to be trained, account customization, strategic consulting, and any related technical requirements are considered. We strongly encourage completing onboarding tasks within 30 days for the best adoption and success.
Do I need to buy additional services?
After investing in your initial onboarding, nope. Once your new marketing-sales platform is live and your programs are underway, you’ll receive personalized technical support for the lifetime of our relationship. You also have our broad Knowledge Base, extensive video tutorial library, quick-start Cheatsheets and in-app Guide Me guides and help bubbles to self-direct your learning, as you choose. We’re here to ensure you get the results you need.
Additional continued training and onboarding for new Users is available once you have completed the initial account configuration and training in 30 days. Fees are calculated at a base rate of $175 per hour.
Do you offer Professional Services?
Yes we do. When you want strategic expert help – whether it’s developing a strategy, cleaning up a list, fixing a deliverability problem, training additional team members, designing a coordinated email/landing page program, or managing a campaign hands-on – our experts can make it happen for you. Long-term or one-off, our team can extend your capabilities.
We are happy to work with you to develop and execute marketing and sales strategy. We also offer proofreading, copyediting, substantive editing, and line editing services for websites, landing pages, emails.

Do I have to pay for a year up front?
No! Venntive automatically processes charges monthly by default. We’ve found that customers appreciate this option for managing their capital outlay. We want your commitment to Venntive to be because you love our Account-Based Everything platform and not because you’re locked into an annual contract. Your long-term success is no less important because you have the luxury of paying monthly. And we want you to be happy.
In exchange, we require the professional courtesy of 30 days written notice via email to cancel your account.
Do you offer discounts?

To send the same message indiscriminately to a large number of recipients, send unsolicited commercial email, generally not allow an option to unsubscribe, send junk or bulk mail, sending numerous amounts of short messaging service messages, or to send a singular message repeatedly to a singular individual or entity over the internet (hereinafter “Spam”) is absolutely prohibited by Venntive. Venntive, developer and provider of the Venntive system suite of email and mobile SMS marketing tools, along with Venntive partners and affiliates who make Venntive system available to their customers, support ONLY permission-based email and mobile marketing practices. In this regard, Venntive has implemented some of the strictest policies in the email industry and supporting procedures that:
Help prevent the Venntive system from being inappropriately used for the purpose of unsolicited email or short messaging service ("SMS") campaigns.
Require permission-based marketing.
Promptly respond to all factually supported complaints suggesting the Venntive system has been used as a vehicle to send unsolicited email or SMS messages.
Venntive itself periodically monitors import lists and outgoing emails and SMS messsages for suspiciously large intended or actual broadcasts that could possible be considered Spam. If any activity of Spam is detected by Venntive, such Spamming conduct is immediately halted by Venntive, and such Venntive user is subject to being permanently barred from ever using Venntive (or any of our Partners', affiliates' and/or internet service providers (hereinafter "ISPs")) systems.
In addition to wasting valuable resources and time, Spam is considered by Venntive intrusive, costly, irrelevant and offensive. Spam is the opposite of permission-based emails - those that are anticipated, personal, relevant and often associated with a "pre-existing business or personal relationship."
Unsolicited Email or Spam Complaints and Recommended Action/Appeal Process
If an email is sent out through Venntive that generates a Spam complaint or that an unsolicited email has been sent from the Venntive system tools, an investigation is initiated. The Venntive user is then notified that an unsolicited email complaint has been lodged against them and a demand is then issued to "show proof" that the complainant opted in to the user's list. The Venntive user is reminded of the terms they accepted in the End User License Agreement (including possible legal ramifications if the user is guilty of Spamming). In addition, the complainant's email address is automatically tagged as "unsubscribed" if the complainant did unsubscribe--so no further emails are sent to the complainant. The Venntive user is also required to manually remove the complainant's email address from their contact list of opt in email if the complainant did not unsubscribe.
Appeal Process - A Venntive user may appeal such complaint by providing a record of when that particular recipient chose to opt into the Venntive mailing list (hereinafter the “Opt In Record”). The Venntive user shall solely be responsible for keeping and providing the Opt In Record that proves that the recipient chose to receive the email and was not simply put on such list unilaterally by the Venntive user. If the Venntive user cannot provide Venntive with the Opt In Record, then the appeal shall be considered unsuccessful and the individual Spam complaint shall be assessed up to a $100 fine; fines vary depending on complaint.
Termination of Venntive User - If Venntive has ANY reason to believe the user of the opt in email, despite the warnings, is or will continue to send unsolicited bulk email to more than 10 individuals without the particular individuals permission, or any complainant who has previously unsubscribed, the user's Venntive account privileges are subject to immediate termination without penalty recourse or fee.

Once Email Recipients Unsubscribe, Suppression Mandatory not Permissive
With regard to email campaigns, all users of Venntive must also accept that an unsubscribe option be automatically appended to every email sent to more than 100 people via the Venntive system. This is mandatory. When the unsubscribe option is requested by an email recipient, Venntive system automatically suppresses emails to that email address in future campaigns. This suppression feature is also mandatory.
In the event that a Venntive user violates any one of our usage rules, or for any other reason deemed appropriate by Venntive, in the sole discretion of Venntive, Venntive reserves the right to suspend or terminate such user, without notice that user’s access to the Venntive system user's account and all related data. Venntive relies on feedback from various governmental and industry sources, a network of the leading ISP's in the world and millions of email recipients to assist in our policing against spam.
Free Anti Spamming Tools

10. Policies for Users in Australia
If you are a Member who lives in Australia, this Section applies to you. We are subject to the operation of the Privacy Act 1988 (“Australian Privacy Act”).
Where we say we assume an obligation about Personal Information, we are also requiring our subcontractors to undertake a similar obligation, where relevant.
We will not use or disclose Personal Information for the purpose of our direct marketing to you unless: you have consented to receive direct marketing; you would reasonably expect us to use your personal details for the marketing; or we believe you may be interested in the material but it is impractical for us to obtain your consent. You may opt out of any marketing materials we send to you through an unsubscribe mechanism or by contacting us directly. If you have requested not to receive further direct marketing messages, we may continue to provide you with messages that are not regarded as “direct marketing” under the Australian Privacy Act, including changes to our terms, system alerts, and other information related to your account.
Our servers are primarily located in the United States. In addition, we or our subcontractors, may use cloud technology to store or process Personal Information, which may result in storage of data outside Australia. It is not practicable for us to specify in advance which country will have jurisdiction over this type of off-shore activity. All of our subcontractors, however, are required to comply with the Australian Privacy Act in relation to the transfer or storage of Personal Information overseas.
If you think the information we hold about you is inaccurate, out of date, incomplete, irrelevant or misleading, we will take reasonable steps, consistent with our obligations under the Australian Privacy Act, to correct that information upon your request.
If you are unsatisfied with our response to a privacy matter then you may consult either an independent advisor or contact the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner for additional help. We will provide our full cooperation if you pursue this course of action.
