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.

Synthio

I think Synthio is better suited to append your existing database, versus building new lists.

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.

Synthio

  • Extensive search filters
  • Email verification prior to download/charge
  • Helpful customer service who you can work directly with to pull lists. It's great to work with someone who can tell you exactly how many verified leads you could pull without having to use credits.

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.

  • Lead quality isn't always the best - as with many databases of this nature. We have to expect that we'll have a high bounce and unsubscribe rate when using these leads.

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.

I feel similar about all of these list building/append services. There are good and bad aspects.

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.

Synthio

  • Positive - We've been able to append records and add them to our targeted marketing campaigns.
  • Negative - We've added some junk to our database, as a result, which has affected our deliverability rates.
  • Negative - We did get a complaint and inquiry from one particular record about sending them an unsolicited email.
