Clearbit

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

If you're with a big company that can afford to pay $500 - 1000 per month or more for data, then this platform may have a lot of value for you. That's in part because you could use it to produce actionable insights on a mass scale and you may not be worried about the cost of incorrect data. If your company is a smaller company working on a budget, this most likely is not the solution for you.

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.

  • There are virtually no areas where this software can improve. This is elite b2b software that businesses who care about their prospecting/sales campaigns use.
  • Other than the software, the price itself can improve so start up businesses are more inclined to make the purchase.

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

Time to realize ROI and system capability was not very clear, and my client was hesitant to take unnecessary risks. Time was not on our side in this selection and evaluation process. The client decided to go with Clearbit based on many factors but ultimately, the feedback received from other users was the deciding factor in the purchase decision.

D&B stacks up but not very high. ZoomInfo is in the lead for newer-looking technology and data quality. Sales Navigator is a powerhouse in the space and probably has the whole package that I'd want during prospecting except for the business code. Crunchbase has newer information and industry trends that are hard to beat. Hopefully D&B can modernize to stack up and make a more appealing UI/UX.

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.
Rick Scouffas | TrustRadius Reviewer

D&B Hoovers

  • 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.
