Clearbit is great for companies with large sales teams who focus on high touch prospecting. The time saved by not having to search a prospect's LinkedIn profile, but simply see data in the CRM is awesome. On the other hand, Clearbit may not be as ideal in a company where sales are very transactional

D and B hoovers are best suited when you want to target companies based on their revenue, employee strength, location, and the kind of business the company is doing, this helps to make a cohort and find companies that are most likely to buy you products or services. However, D & B hoovers has some scope for improvement when it comes to getting details of individual decision-makers in those companies. It's not bad but can improve.

Pros

Clearbit

  • The phone numbers are extremely accurate, so our sales team isn't wasting time calling 800 numbers or being transferred.
  • ClearBit mapping is great because there are 80 fields that map and an API.
  • We can build out our leads and contacts extremely faster because of the simplicity of the program.

  • Hoover's has good information architecture in one sense that allowed you to keep track of where you have looked and also add anticipatory links for things you might like to research or know.
  • It was great for finding a more complete picture of the companies history.
  • It was helpful for piecing together contact information for people you may not have known worked there.

Cons

Clearbit

  • The data Clearbit provides is good, but it doesn't compare to some competitors. While you can find a large range of data, other providers have more clean data.
  • The Google Sheets add-on is not as comprehensive. It would be nice if you could search for both prospect emails and numbers there.
  • Clearbit provides direct dials, but again it's not as accurate as other services.

  • We should be able to "exclude" words from titles or company names
  • Able to access titles and email addresses more easily - not look at list first, select find matching contacts button, then go back to sort to add titles contain and email addresses, etc. This is a two-step process to get what I need.

    The majority of the time it provides quick, accessible and easy to use information about the company and contact information. This has really helped us to personalise our outreach while also making it faster to prospect accounts. I don't give it a ten as this information can be inaccurate. Including the LinkedIn link which sometimes re-directs to old LinkedIn accounts, or just the wrong one. This seems to be caused by not updating the information regularly enough (just a feeling, no evidence)

    Hoover's just isn't compelling for the types of information they provide and the pricing model. But again, this is from the very limited perspective of a below entry level analyst who is just finishing their studies. It is probable that for some segments of industry, Hoover's has vast wealth of pertinent information. For example, when looking into agricultural industries for a consulting firm, I did not save any time with their service because information on factory locations and assets was scant. Using Google earth to view the square footage of the facilities to estimate assets was often more helpful.

    The team has been extremely helpful and works with us one on one with issues we come across. My main issues with the service is it’s outward interactions with us since purchasing the product. They have not proactively checked in to see how our is doing with the product.

    They are terrific at giving instruction/webinars. I am able to call, directly, to an individual and talk to that person. I'm not talking to a robot. They give personal service which is really special.

    Alternatives Considered

    Clearbit

    Clearbit has been extremely beneficial for our organization. We still use and have access to some other tools, but it's the net new targeting that stands out for us, rather than a BlackBox of accounts that are in the market. When it comes to paid social where tracking and quality are tricky to measure and manage, Clearbit is the best option out there.

    While there are several softwares that offer similar options, Hoovers does stand above the others as one of the most accurate softwares I have used. They seem to put a lot of work into keeping their information up to date and accurate. It definitely makes the life of a salesperson much easier.

    Return on Investment

    Clearbit

    • It's provided some key data in terms of geography which we rely on to distribute our customers and prospects to territories.
    • Works great for large repositories of data, which we have.
    • Not as useful for proactive prospecting. We use it primarily for data enrichment and confirmation of demographic info.

    • Honestly cannot say we really drove any new sales using D&B Hoovers to prospect new companies and leads. We obtained higher data quality with other tools like ZoomInfo and Skrapp.
    • A year long contract that isn't honored on their side due to lack of customer service and poor data quality definitely does not equal ROI.
    • Spent significant time sanitizing and cleansing inaccurate data provided by their service. Since time is money in business, that was a loss in that aspect.
