Data.com

Data.com is a good prospecting and data information tool for any agency or company doing outbound prospecting. Data.com requires you to also have Salesforce CRM, so this tool is really only suited for those companies that can afford Salesforce. Because of this, Data.com seems like a better fit for companies with at least 30 or more employees (total in the company) and at least 5 Salesforce users. Data.com is not a good fit for small businesses.

MediaRadar

It's a great research tool to give someone a direction but it's definitely not the most accurate tool. The agency hierarchy (it shows the holding company structures) and client relationships are awesome. Certain webcrawler activities should available in reports but on the other hand MR builts custom reports if needed. Overall, it's a great tool for sales development. It helps sales and marketing to get started but not to rely on it 100%.

Pros

Data.com

  • Data.com is appealing because it's affordable. You might need to purchase a few contacts to get rolling, but once you're able to add some yourself and gain additional points, it can very rewarding to "earn" additional contacts by submitting some of your own.
  • There is a wide range of search terms available to narrow down your list by name, region, company name, and others.
  • Easy "add contacts" function, and a template to add a large number of them at once.

MediaRadar

  • One of the strengths of Media Radar is that it has a lot of brands in the database. The big money spenders are there, along with smaller brands and startups. This is helpful when I'm looking for information for smaller brands, because I cannot say the same about other products I use.
  • The contact information is super organized and the site overall is very user-friendly.

Cons

Data.com

  • If it provided more details about the company it would be great- information such as employee size or software used would be great.
  • The ability to add a contact with just a number would be great- sometimes you don't have an address.
  • It would be helpful to be notified when a contact you have "purchased" has been changed/updated.
Elizabeth Rodriguez | TrustRadius Reviewer

MediaRadar

  • I think the user interface could use improvement.
  • Would be nice to have more accurate phone # information.
  • Could be updated more frequently.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Data.com

My client chose Data.com based on the experience during the evaluation period and the cost comparison. Data.com was the better-suited solution in this scenario. The size of the InsideView database was significantly smaller than Data.com and had limitations on downloads that Data.com did not. InsideView also provided little detail in profiles that were a dealbreaker for my client.

MediaRadar is what my company chooses to use for this purpose because of a few specific unique things it does, such as tracking competitors and allowing us to make mock-ups.

Return on Investment

Data.com

  • It does an excellent job of creating a more complete picture of an account and key contacts.
  • Helps clarify the key contacts. Sometimes all you get is a mumbled name on a call that might be very important. Data.com allows for a quick search and identification of the contact that would have been lost otherwise.
  • Even helped us begin sending marketing assets to customers of our partners that share a need overlap.
Jerry van Dalen Jr. | TrustRadius Reviewer

MediaRadar

  • Given the spend amounts in media, finding the right contacts has a big ROI.
  • Saves a lot of time by giving you the media/marketing contacts you're looking for in media.
  • They have a concierge to help you if it's missing contacts.
