Dun & Bradstreet
It is best suited when you don't want to just spray and pray kind of a scenario, this helps in targeting just the right people for making a sale. You can search people based on industry, function, level of seniority, geography, designation, etc. Mostly there are no scenarios where it is not appropriate in particular, if you don't want buyer intent data then in that case it is expensive and you can look for other options.

For small businesses that don't have big budgets for marketing automation, VisiStat is an ideal first step. For companies that have sophisticated systems in place, VisiStat will augment your analytics and provide a deeper dive into your website activity. Since the implementation involves adding javascript to your site, the user should be familiar with how to do this

Pros
Dun & Bradstreet
  • Searching people who have the intent to buy your services or products.
  • It has as very good filter that helps pinpoint your targeted audience.
  • It has a large pool of contacts within the company, so helps to reach out to the right person via several connections.
  • The data available is fresh and current.

KickFire
  • De-anonymizes website activity at the account (company) level.
  • Identifies net new target accounts.
  • Displays click path, time on page, time per session, and engagement level of each de-anonymized website visit.
  • Gives great daily insight on watchlists you've set up.
  • Delivers every possible de-anonymized visit with little filtering for accuracy.
  • More on the watchlists. I really love that you can receive immediate alerts on website visits from accounts you've listed on your watchlists. This way, you never miss the window of opportunity to reach out to your key targets while they are currently on your site.
  • Salesforce integration is good. KickFire pushes most recent website visits, pages visited, website click path, activity percent change, and more to the given account in Salesforce. You can then create reports and run them regularly to see which accounts are surging in website activity. This is also great for account prospecting, and for planning your sales outreach plan of attack. You can see which bits of your website content are most interesting to the company, and which products they are most interested in.

Cons
Dun & Bradstreet
  • in my opinion having to split usage between United States and International does not make sense on why this needs to be done....recommend eliminating this
  • need for improvement on error resolution....when an error is found the D&B resolution team is EXTREMELY difficult to work with...very clunky and automated when there is a need for personnal interaction

D&B Connect allows for a huge array of data values to choose from. Tamr is limited in that it only assists in identifying duplicate data records and highlighting the most accurate record from among the duplicates based on customizable filters.

I covered this pretty extensively in the cons. The key differentiator here is that KickFire serves up almost all the data (or so it seems) to the end client. The client then has to do their own work on interpreting it. This is good because it means we don't miss out on any website activities, but it's bad because we get a lot of false positives. 6sense uses the confidence score approach I mentioned in the Cons section, which means the match rates of the data we get are much higher. Our experience with Clearbit comes from other tools that are built on it (Bombora, Drift, etc.), and it has not been great. We've seen many more inaccuracies with Clearbit.
