I like the ability to dump manageable quantities of leads into my warm email outreach campaigns, without having a huge master list of leads to break up manually into chunks, and the FuseBot automation literally puts it on autopilot every week when I am ready to add new leads into the top of my funnel.

LinkedIn Sales Navigator

This is also a great tool that we use for a social selling approach. I've personally had lots of success with clients not responding and reaching out through LinkedIn to spark a conversation. What really makes a difference is having a tool that helps analyze businesses and their employees. The other side of this, besides just LinkedIn, is your ability to see companies and individuals as well as send messages without a limit, therefore increasing the effectiveness and scope of the impact for your business. It doesn't always do a great job of pulling in contact data. If you're looking to bulk search individuals this isn't the tool you would want to use.

Pros

LeadFuze

  • LeadFuze is easy to use. Like any software it takes a little getting used to.....but the product works and it is providing leads to help grow our business.
  • Support is quick and helpful. I even had the owner on chat with me a few times. You are going to get stuck once in a while. The LeadFuze support team with get you out of trouble and back making money.
  • There are a lot of good leads available. And more are added on a regular basis. Can't ask for more than that.
  • Cost is reasonable, especially when compared to PPC.

LinkedIn Sales Navigator

  • LinkedIn Sales Navigator takes the guesswork out of contacting potential lead sources. Rather than spending an exorbitant amount of time and energy trying to find the right people you wish to connect with, it lets you drill down and find contacts on a granular level.
  • LinkedIn Sales Navigator has add-ons that we pay for, and they are well worth the cost. We are now able to send more LinkedIn InMails each month, and we get a higher response rate from recipients.
  • We use Salesforce, and LinkedIn Sales Navigator saves leads and contacts into this platform with a simple click. There is no need to enter information multiple times, which is a real time saver.

Cons

LeadFuze

  • We were doing simple text emails that were coming out of sales peoples inboxes so this functionality wasn't totally needed on our end at the moment, but we imagine that we would have wanted to do more with customizing emails in general.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

LinkedIn Sales Navigator

  • With my current company I only have a limited amount of inMails that I can send per month (50) which limits my use of the product. I wish that I was able to have unlimited to get the full functionality.
  • One complaint I have about targeting specific types of prospects is that when you do narrow the list within a company sometimes unrelated prospects still come up in the search and you have to weed through them.
  • I wish that regular linkedIn and Sales Navigator could be linked together at least message wise so that you didn't have to remember if you sent a prospect a message through Navigator or just from being a contact.

This question is a no-brainer. The tool is the industry standard for anyone tied to sales and marketing. The name "LinkedIn Sales Navigator" is synonymous with streamlining relevant customer and account data in an easy to use format that is actionable and intelligent. The focus on continuous improvement and richer means of communicating with customers and prospects is evident each time new features are rolled out. The social component of the tool even includes a gamification component to ensure that peers remain relevant among each other, which is refreshing and enjoyable for those who engage the tool on a daily basis.

It lets you pull people with specific titles in specific areas and with the criteria you choose--job changes, mutual connections based on schools, roles, and companies, etc. It is easy to upload these lists into other software or download and save them to a drive.

It is very rare for me to leave a 10 for a review, however LeadFuze customer support really deserves a 10. They are prompt at answering questions and offer advice on best practice for gathering data and outbound emails. Also, they provide regular updates regarding future updates to their platform. I highly recommend Leadfuze.

The tool speaks for itself, but the support is definitely a significant portion of why we use the tool. The company cares about their customer's success and it shows. We do not have to wait for long periods of time for the support team to respond; they do so in a timely manner, and virtually always with relevant insights and solutions.

I am unsure of the rollout, as I was not involved. I was an early adopter, and I have had a lot of success with the tool personally at multiple organizations, but I have no idea whether the implementation process encountered any errors. I can personally say that it works, and that I have not encountered significant issues with the tool since adoption, although a few issues like messages showing up as being unread even though they have been opened have been an on-again/off-again issues throughout the past few years. Overall, the company is doing a great job, and our implementation seems to have been effective.

Alternatives Considered

LeadFuze

I found LeadFuze a few years ago and have always looked to them first given the great product and customer service. I go in and out of active membership depending on what my consulting projects demand. Great value given the price point.
Adam Goodman | TrustRadius Reviewer

LinkedIn Sales Navigator

The only other tool I've used similar to Sales Navigator is the free LInkedin. As I've said, it is a great tool for networking and can be used for prospecting. I feel like Linkedin has really spent a lot of time trying to make Sales Navigator a better, more powerful tool for people in sales.

Return on Investment

LeadFuze

  • The negative impact to us was in an (admittedly) reasonable upfront cost that we could have allocated to additional advertising that month.
  • The positive impact... how many clients do you need to get a positive ROI? We made it back and more in month 1.
  • We were very lucky to get in on the lifetime deal, so now we broke even on the cost of the software-- it's free forever!
Gareth Ellis | TrustRadius Reviewer

LinkedIn Sales Navigator

  • In my last business, it enabled me to quickly target high value prospects and reach out to them. It led to enough success that I used it regularly.
  • It also offers and (I took advantage of) the ability to seek out introductions. This led to a large number of prospect conversations and some sales.
  • In my current business, we used it to beta test heavy outbound email campaigns, which it proved out because of the accuracy of the data.
