If you are in any type of sales, and meeting with people, it is a must. If you already know you contact well, it doesn't have as much value for that particular meeting. Also I wish there was a way to not sync internal meetings, as it just provides clutter, and I don't need info on those people.

LeadFuze

I give Lead Fuze an excellent rating because the double-checking feature for email addresses makes it so you don't have to purchase additional software and you don't have to worry about emails bouncing back from old, wrong emails like some other lead scrapers do. You can scrape 1000 quality leads in about 1 day and feed them directly into your cold emailing software like High Level, Woodpecker, Active Campaign, etc.

Pros

Charlie App

  • They easily connect with my Outlook to sync my upcoming meetings.
  • It provides me with the social profiles of people I am meeting with.
  • It gives me the ability to have all my info about my contact in one place to easily review.

LeadFuze

  • I really like the 'no nonsense' interface and simplicity of LeadFuse. As a digital marketing agency, I also really like the AdWords budget filter... This is great! I can target prospects who are already spending at least 'X' amount of money on paid ads, so I have a basic idea of their budget before I even approach them. This avoids the 'what's your budget' question evasiveness that prospects often give. I can tell them I already know how much they are spending on PPC and cut through the BS.
  • I also like the 'technology used' filter. Since we work primarily with Wordpress, I can target prospects NOT using WordPress and pitch web design in a more meaningful way. Or, conversely, I can target ONLY companies using WordPress.
  • Finally, I like the semi-automation feature. I can have FuseBot pull down 100 new leads based on my criteria every Monday and, before I dump them into my automated email outreach/nurture campaign, I can glance over them and make sure the all look ok (admittedly, sometimes there are some weird strays in the results that are not in the geography or industry I'm looking for, so I can skip those).

Cons

Charlie App

  • At times it doesn't pull a social profile for the contact correctly, or at all, when I know the person has a profile.
  • The interface is a little clunky, and the font is too large. It could be a lot smaller and still effective.
  • It takes a lot of time to sync at points, which is frustrating.
Kevin Gilman | TrustRadius Reviewer

LeadFuze

  • LeadFuze could use more leads in other countries, we service Canada and find it not as robust as the US options
  • While a large %, we do find invalid lead data when we run them through verification
  • When contacts leave jobs or change positions, it's not always updated

LeadFuze is super easy to get going and start to work with. There are videos to walk you through it but all you have to do is fill out the form that tells the system what kind of leads you're looking for and you're good to go - it does the rest of the work for you!

Very poor again. I booked 3 demonstrations with them, the first failed to support due to tech issues, the second one failed to arrive for the meeting, as did the third meeting arranged. I had difficulty trying to find anywhere to engage online with them, so the customer experience is very low down in my opinion.

Alternatives Considered

Charlie App

The thing that Charlie does best is it aggregates everything in one place. It allows me to have a one-stop shop, that I can quickly review prior to heading into a meeting. People are usually amazed with the amount of info that Charlie can give you, and it almost always works its way into my sales call.

LeadFuze

LeadFuze has more filters than other software I've been using such as FindThatLead and Snovio and that gives me the chance to drill down even further into specific niches. Also, the system is really more user friendly and simple to use even more than other software I used in the past.

Return on Investment

Charlie App

  • The info I pull from Charlie prior to the meeting is almost always brought up as a conversation starter.
  • Charlie helps my relationships go deeper than just surface level info.
  • The ability to go deeper in my relationships while using Charlie has absolutely closed me business.

LeadFuze

  • We have been able to reduce PPC spend and spend a fraction of that with LeadFuze. We are producing leads and a reasonable percentage is converting into orders and long term clients. Can't beat that.
  • We now spend less time chasing and generating leads. LeadFuze does all the heavy lifting and we have more time to build the business.
  • We have obtained several larger, long term clients from being able to get in front of them due to LeadFuze. LeadFuze helps us make that initial contact....the rest is up to us. That is the way it should be and the way I like it.
