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

1. Looking up the technologies, analytics tools, and services used by your competitors and industry leaders. 2. Checking what has changed technology-wise on the website of your competitor, since you've noticed an improvement in their rankings or other website improvements. You can even set up alerts to receive emails every time a new change was made to the technology of the website you're interested in (usually your top competitors').
Read full review Pros 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. Read full review We were considering changing a hosting provider because we were not happy with the speed of our website. So, we used SimilarTech to look up which hosting providers our competitors and some other faster websites were using, to help us make an informed choice. When the company was considering a new live chat vendor, we also used SimilarTech to see what software some of the best websites on the web are using. Read full review Cons 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. Read full review Given the tasks SimilarTech was designed for, I don't really think there are any issues with it. It's hard to think of a situation where I couldn't get the information I needed from SimilarTech. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
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)

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.

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.

SimilarTech is more user-friendly and seems to have a bigger index (i.e. covers more websites) of the websites.
Read full review Return on Investment 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. Read full review Overall SimilarTech had a positive impact, as it saves a lot of time (days) when it comes to research of the competition and new up-and-coming technologies for our website. Moreover, it helps to monitor updates on the websites of the industry leaders, and to keep up with tech. Read full review ScreenShots
