If you want to create a more targeted ad approach to your marketing strategy, you need 6sense to do it well. If your team is not willing to look at things from an account based approach and are stuck in the old school way of thinking about MQLs, then this may be a tough sell to sales.

The Sales Navigator has allowed us to increase our awareness of our potential lead pool and has allowed us to grow our customer base. The system is easy to use and allows us to have great control over the number of leads we can see and the number of leads that we can connect to. Using the system has also helped us in being able to manage the number of leads that we can send.

Pros
6sense
  • Product support: They are constantly adding new features and innovating.
  • Customer success: Everyone who uses the platform internally is in a customer-facing role and there is a massive amount of self-service and regularly-scheduled live training available.
  • Orchestration: We are able to orchestrate account and content acquisition with ease to add qualified accounts to our CRM and kick-start contact acquisition for sales.
  • Advertising: The advertising capabilities continue to grow. You can retarget individuals as well as run several different types of banner ad campaigns. They also recently added in-platform support to create LinkedIn campaigns.

  • Has many filter capabilities for me to find exactly who I am looking for.
  • Integrates with other prospecting tools to create a well rounded with the information it can collect.
  • Integrates with SFDC- automatically uploads them as leads.
  • Integrates with Salesloft for me to easily start the cadence.

Cons
6sense
  • Sales Alerts - could provide more information, allow for more orgs to be identified, creating them based on keywords is beyond challenging as I cannot use keyword groups and instead must add each keyword manually.
  • Geographic areas - would love to be able to provide one zip code for a segment and ask for a radius of 20,50, etc miles around it, or even just ask for the geographic area relative to a specific city (DC Metro area, as an example)
  • RevCity/User Community - it's good and a nice start but the system doesn't provide reminders regularly to go check it out. Most of the posters tend to be 6sensers, and several questions can go unanswered.

  • Sometimes it tells me I need to log into my LinkedIn profile when I've already logged in. It's weird. It seems to be when the email address is not found. Instead of just saying the email is not found, it tells me I need to log in. Just something I've noticed.
  • Sometimes I get this weird thing where I go to compose an email and instead of having it open all the way to the right, it opens all the way to my left. I'm pretty sure Rapportive is what's causing it. It doesn't happen very often but sometimes I see that.

We have several resources and, although 6sense is valuable, I do not believe it's being used widely enough by the sales team due to lack of training and its complexity. I wish there was a simplified guide for use and more 1-on-1 training.

Rapportive is simple and great at what it does. Plus I anticipate they'll probably add more features in the future.

Usability
6sense
The platform is pretty straightforward as far as creating new segments and what's available to do so. The launch of digital advertising has greatly improved in recent months which has been great for our digital team. Adding or removing users and updating integration points is pretty easy as well. Reporting has also been recently updated which makes reporting on usage and ROI much easier too.

Their Customer Success model is delivered as advertised. We're very satisfied with the availability of support. They care as much about our success as we do. We also had an issue where we believed there was an issue in a piece of functionality. They continued to dig until they found the problem and immediately put the fix into a patch.

It was too fast, too complex, no one could follow along. If you miss a step, you're lost for the rest of the time and there is SO MUCH to learn and keep up with.

Bombora gives you the data raw, you then determine where you want to integrate it and pull it in. More control, but more work. Also, you need a strong understanding of what you want to do. Demandbase seemed pretty much an Ads platform that uses intent. I love the website personalization that Triblio ABM/ABX Platform offers, but it is a marketing tool. It doesn't offer the same prospecting benefits.

LinkedIn Sales Navigators provides different services than most other products and has the unique ability to take advantage of LinkedIn's proprietary user data. That also comes with a drawback that the system is dependent on users to update their data in a timely and accurate manner in order to get the correct intel back to users. I'd recommend other products like Seamless.ai or MediaRadar for more accurate and updated contact information, but also to use LinkedIn Sales Navigator for Gmail for better market and company intel, timely pitching opportunities and seamless integration between Gmail and LinkedIn.

  • Really lets me leverage my entire business network
  • Empowers me to see the prospect's whole picture (who they know, where they went, what they do) and take advantage of that opening
  • We have no other system like it, so it's irreplaceable for us
