While InsideView seems more comprehensive than LinkedIn SalesNavigator, when you're looking to identify and save contacts with a particular area of responsibility (IT, for instance), Navigator provides results and means to track them more quickly and easily. Having to "unselect" every other job area category when initially landing on a company overview page in InsideView is tedious and time-consuming.

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.
Read full review Pros 'Call Prep' - a list of industry-related questions to ask my prospects during the phone call to enhance trust and credibility as a business partner. Regularly scrubbed email and phone numbers of prospects. The verified direct-dial mobile number is GOLD. You may be able to get some of these elsewhere by paying extra with a separate standalone service. Having this integrated has improved my workflow, saving time from switching in and out of different apps. The family tree of organizations is particularly useful for targeting enterprise accounts that often come with convoluted company shareholding structures. 'Challenges' and 'Trends' - information to engage prospects during conversations. Read full review 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. Read full review Cons As a system administrator, I wish I had access to real time reports regarding usage. Often times, senior leadership wants to know how their teams are using the information and who is using the software to its fullest. It's a pain to have to email InsideView and ask for a report. We are a global organization and there is not a lot of information regarding companies outside the US. I know they are working on this, but my global field reps are anxiously waiting to use the software too. I wish InsideView put out more "tips and tricks" documents. There does not seem to be a large repository of training documents. I am always looking to learn more, as are my reps. Read full review 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. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
Relatively inexpensive service for a decent current awareness service. They have added little in sales functionality in the past year as they focused on building a marketing version of the product. Except for the addition of broader European coverage last spring (thin Equifax records), the database was static over the past year.

InsideView was extremely user-friendly. I was able to quickly understand how to efficiently use the software and get the most out of the service. I only had a short time to quickly learn how to use the functions offered by InsideView, and I felt confident within the first day of my understanding and ability to successfully use this tool.

We had an intro session with a customer success rep and were given a rundown of the platform and it was absolutely perfect. The rep was able to show us advanced search options and shortcuts that cut our search time.

Seeing the demo during the sales cycle, not much training was needed due to this application being plug and play.

We had to work with InsideView for some custom configurations example we have a custom field in Salesforce called ha location that needed let's say NJ to spell out New Jersey and make certain fields mandatory. They were easy to work with though.

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.
Read full review Return on Investment Makes researching much easier so saved time prospecting. Cleaner information than other relative sites so not using bad information. Hard to put a number on saved time and then its dollar value in benefit, but it has definitely furthered my goals. Read full review 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.
