Lead411

For anyone in sales, particularly in the direct and "hunting" category, this is a great tool. The hardest part of sales is finding the appropriate decision makers and influencers in your target market and getting them to talk to you. Lead411's contact info is as current and accurate as I've every experienced in my decade + in sales, and coupled with their customizable news alerts, it allows you to contact prospects at the right time with something relevant to talk about around their company and industry, increasing your chances of a successful sales call while allowing you to filter out those prospects that just aren't a fit for what you do. A quick "no" is the second best thing behind a "yes" because you get back so much more of a very valuable asset -- your time. This tool helps you to dramatically reduce wasted hours hunting for the wrong contact person and the wrong fit for your services. Efficiency and time management improved dramatically by using Lead411.

Apollo is well suited in cases where automation is essential in your outreach. It sends out as many emails as you'd like daily and you literally don't have to spend any time on them. Another form of automation is the way it tracks your stats as well. We keep tallies daily of our activity and the reports do that for you, which is very helpful

Pros

Lead411

  • Most importantly --- The DATA is accurate and the platform is straight-forward and simple to use. The native connection to our CRM environment "completes the requirement" from our standpoint. A "10 out of 10"...
  • From my experiences and interactions, the culture of the organization is exceptionally focused on customer satisfaction! We've been more than pleased with EVERY SINGLE interaction with Lead411....they go out of their way to be of assistance. A "10 out of 10"...

  • Handling multi-step outreach sequences -> email -> phone call reminder -> LinkedIn addition -> follow up email -> leave voicemail -> break up email
  • Finding new accounts & contacts to reach out to
  • Having easy to understand reporting for how your messaging is converting into meetings

Cons

Lead411

  • Ability to upload more than one company or a list of companies to match and then build a list. This is something discussed with Lead411 and from our understanding is under development.
  • Continue to verify, update and add contact information for contacts at Fortune 1000 companies

  • Their customer service is just terrible. You get an assigned account manager but 9/10 times they wouldn't know what you wanted and/or how the product works or how to fix it. Vast majority of the time it was a canned response that made you question if they read the message, or if they read it and did not understand a word.
  • The software was relatively buggy and lacked features that were promised upon signup. They seem to have some large corporate clients and if you aren't one none of your bug submissions, feature requests, or concerns will be addressed.
  • Their growing quickly so they seem to be very understaffed which I believe caused many of the issues above.
  • The data, while good, can quickly run out if you're looking for specific types of leads. If you're looking for something generic like Managers at companies between 10-5000 people, you can pull leads all day every day. However if you're looking for a specific industry, specific title, and specific location - don't count on having an endless supply of leads (or even really enough to use month after month).

I received excellent support at any time I opened up a ticket. But I would add to it that the tool was very self-explanatory, so there wasn't much need for support. With Outreach, we have a closer relationship with our CSM because of the intricacy in things like SFDC task mapping.

Alternatives Considered

Lead411

I used DiscoverOrg at a previous job and what I can say the main difference to be Lead411 just has more accurate and up to date information. I also think it's easier to navigate their UI than others, but that might just be my preference

We tested both Outreach and SalesLoft. SalesLoft felt like an incomplete product, and Outreach drastically increased their rates at our contract renewal. They spend a lot of money in hosting big conferences like Oracle, and less time developing the product.

Return on Investment

Lead411

  • It has helped us identify buying signals through their news tracker that has led us to say the right things to spark a conversation and ended up closing several deals because of this. The tool will pay for itself if you know how to effectively apply it. When using their news feature we tend to see about a 30% bump and meaningful conversations.
  • It is a great way to identify competitors of the people you are targeting. Everytime you look up an account it offers about five or six suggestions of companies that fit the same firmographic profile.
  • While the data appender has some manual things attached to it it has served to be a valuable resource in updating criteria that are used to identify valuable accounts.
Jordan Linford | TrustRadius Reviewer

Apollo

  • We've seen a significant increase in outbound leads after using this tool (almost a 200% increase MoM).
  • Negative: This tool does take a considerable amount of time to learn how to use, and you likely won't see results if someone is only spending minimal time within the tool, so we have invested a bit in hiring people to manage this tool.
