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.

SellHack
SellHack is great for anyone who is in sales or whose work requires the need to build lists or to search for missing email addresses. Many businesses and social media sites provide email addresses, but of course depending upon industry many do not, so SellHack is my go to tool when I absolutely have to find an email.

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.

SellHack
  • Often I'll be searching for an email address, so I'll go to LinkedIn, ZoomInfo, Sales Navigator. These are all services the my firm pays for me. But inevitably I will need another sure fire source and SellHack is my go to tool, it will find email addresses often when I can't find them anywhere else.
  • I use Hunter also, but many times I found addresses on SellHack that I couldn't find on Hunter.
  • I love that you can subscribe and purchase various levels of searches per month, or if you want you can buy x amount of searches that don't expire.
  • SellHack has a nice Chrome extension that stays on top so when I'm searching I can click on it from the pull down and enter the data and copy/paste the results into my CRM.

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.

  • I wish they had a roll over feature for unused credits on the subscription.
  • SellHack is great for list building, and export to popular CRMs like Salesforce.
  • If you have an email address and you're not sure if it's accurate, SellHack will verify the address and give you a percentage rating on their confidence that the address works (a percentage rating is given for all email searches).
  • I love their referral program: Give 50, Get 50: Refer a friend and you both get 50 free credits! I've used this many times.

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.

Hunter and ZoomInfo are two services that I also use to find email addresses. Generally if I can't find it on one of those SellHack will find it for me, never the other way around. I use them all, but SellHack is my secret weapon.

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.

  • It's been vital. I've made too many contacts to mention because I was able to source the correct email address for C-suite executives (which are my target prospects).
  • The cost of the service has been affordable. I work inside sales and so I have to be selective on which tools I pay for because the ROI must fit within my budget. I've used SellHack since day one in this role and I use it every month.
