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.

Its well suited If you find yourself manually placing contact details in CRMs or you're using multiple tools to find relevant and accurate contact details. Not so relevant if you already sheet of contact details and you can simply import it as a CSV in certain tools

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.

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.

Super easy to use, the only thing I wish they would change is that you always need to check the prospects linkedin page to see if there's been an update to their contact (eg. if contact didnt have a mobile number saved, they may now, so you need to check linkedin every single time before reaching out). Other than that, this is by far the best tool for pulling numbers and emails.

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.

zoominfo has old contact info, a lot of the time i look at specific people and their companies aren't updated. I get intent emailed to me from zoominfo for job changes and it will be 6-12 months after someone changed jobs so the information is just not accurate enough. apollo only pulls headquarters info, never had an accurate cell number from it so i stopped using it pretty quickly during our eval

Return on Investment

  • 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.

  • I prefer using it from the SalesNav page compared to Zoominfo - seems way more up to date
  • Allows me to massively scale my prospecting by keeping me in page and I don't have to look up and cross reference on other tools
  • While it has a smaller set of functionality that I can use it for relative to Zoominfo, the things that it does do I've always felt it did a better job
  • Really simple UI and doesn't prompt me to sign in every day which I appreciate.
