There are many scenarios that make data.com well suited, but most specifically, it works very well when looking for contacts within a certain zip code. You can sort and find information about these contacts and pay by points. This helps because you are able to pick and choose which you want to pay for.

LeadGenius is great for any company that has very specific, niche leads they need to generate (like we do). If you have a broader audience, I would recommend using a simpler, cheaper platform that simply scrapes LInkedIn for some keywords you've entered. For us, we need specific titles from specific types of companies (i.e. software companies that could use an email API).

Pros
Discontinued Products
  • Data.com is a great way to find out accurate revenue and employee numbers for companies across various industries.
  • Data.com's filtering capabilities allow our team to quickly find the ideal prospects to reach out to.
  • Data.com, being owned by Salesforce, allows for a seamless integration into our CRM. This saves us an incredible amount of time and ensures data accuracy.

  • LeadGenius has gone out of their way to help us find leads for fairly obscure markets. LeadGenius combines AI with personal vetting to find hundreds and thousands of leads for us that other automated lead gen platforms that simply scrape LinkedIn or the web cannot find.
  • If you need any custom work done for you outside of the platform, LeadGenius is willing to help with that where other platforms are not (with other lead gen platforms, either you use the system as-is despite it's shortcomings, or not at all).

Cons
Discontinued Products
  • Some contacts can be old. Perhaps they could consider validating some that are older than 5 years.
  • They don't always detect duplicate companies. For example, I've added the same company twice before, I don't understand how they allow that, or prevent others from adding duplicates. It doesn't happen very often,, only occasionally.
  • Sometimes data.com will "autocorrect" a job title incorrectly. For example, entering "Director of People & Culture" will autocorrect it to "Director of peopleandculture" If you don't catch it, it looks pretty bad for the next person who wants to view the contact.

  • The platform loads a little slowly and has little quirks. If you create a ton of segments, it can be hard to organize them. If you archive old ones you can't view them anymore (but Leadgenius has access on the backend and can send your data to you).

Usability

Very intuitive to use and I've never had any confusion with features. Anyone can create an account and use the platform simply by adding a contact or company into the database to earn points. It's a great option if you don't have budget for lists or pay services. It is easy to use and anyone can benefit from it.

Whenever I've had a question their support has responded pretty quickly and gives me exactly what I am looking for. I have not had any technical issues so I can't speak to issues there, but as far as general questions from a free user they have impressed me with how quickly they get back to me and the thoroughness of their answers.

Adobe Workfront may not be the direct competitor of Data.com, but for the services I was using, Workfront looked a little better when it comes to the user interface. But Data.com definitely had more powerful features & better integration capabilities. Also, it was easier to play around with the customer journey in Data.com as compared to other tools I have used in the past.

Growlabs used too many generic search parameters and had too many system bugs - but they're early and I'm confident their product will get stronger.

Return on Investment
Discontinued Products
  • The positive impact is gaining more direct contact information for hiring managers.
  • Another positive factor is that it is completely free. You gain points for contact information when you add contact information.
  • Since it is a free resource, there are no real negative impacts.

  • LeadGenius has been one of the main sources of leads for us over the past 6 months. There's a longer lead nurture cycle (since they're cold, outbound leads as opposed to inbound), but they do convert to customers for us.
