Data.com is great for filtering and finding specific contact and company information. Unfortunately much of that information is old and outdated. We recently did not renew our subscription with Data.com because we felt it could use improvement. We now use Winmo which provides …

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.

Winmo is best suited when you know which company you are looking for, but are missing some information, including key contacts, agency relationships, and quarterly advertising budgets. Scenarios where it is less appropriate are when you already know which company/contact you are looking for, and you are merely looking for company info to provide context

  • 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.

  • Allows us to view information from companies in the industry to stay on top of industry news and trends.
  • It provides a large database of clients and important companies, with the contacts of managers and executive staff.
  • Allows us to export the list of contacts and clients to Excel or Salesforce for the weekly reports that we make in the agency.

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 contact info can be somewhat stale...it pays to double-check LinkedIn first to see if a particular contact still has that position.
  • Would like to see more info on lesser-known brands, since the big brands often mentioned are already inundated with sales inquiries.

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.

I've used a few different services like Winmo, one of them being seamless. Winmo was a lot easier to use and the information that I gather from Winmo seems to be a lot more accurate and easy to navigate. User experience is a big deal, the easier to find information the better.

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.

  • There has been a positive ROI in terms of list building.
  • The ROI has also been positive in terms of competitive research.
  • The ROI has been negative in terms of data quality. When the sales team actually starts using the data as-is without putting in some of their own time to clean the data.
