I give Lead Fuze an excellent rating because the double-checking feature for email addresses makes it so you don't have to purchase additional software and you don't have to worry about emails bouncing back from old, wrong emails like some other lead scrapers do.
You can scrape 1000 quality leads in about 1 day and feed them directly into your cold emailing software like High Level, Woodpecker, Active Campaign, etc. Read full review
PersistIQ is well suited for outbound marketing. It's great for setting up sales and marketing campaigns to new and prospective clients. The fact that PersistIQ emails are basic (they look like normal personal emails) and easy to personalize, makes the whole process feel more genuine than, say,
. PersistIQ won't replace a bulk emailing tool or CRM. It serves a different purpose than, for example,
, two products we also use
Read full review Pros I really like the 'no nonsense' interface and simplicity of LeadFuse. As a digital marketing agency, I also really like the AdWords budget filter... This is great! I can target prospects who are already spending at least 'X' amount of money on paid ads, so I have a basic idea of their budget before I even approach them. This avoids the 'what's your budget' question evasiveness that prospects often give. I can tell them I already know how much they are spending on PPC and cut through the BS. I also like the 'technology used' filter. Since we work primarily with Wordpress, I can target prospects NOT using WordPress and pitch web design in a more meaningful way. Or, conversely, I can target ONLY companies using WordPress. Finally, I like the semi-automation feature. I can have FuseBot pull down 100 new leads based on my criteria every Monday and, before I dump them into my automated email outreach/nurture campaign, I can glance over them and make sure the all look ok (admittedly, sometimes there are some weird strays in the results that are not in the geography or industry I'm looking for, so I can skip those). Read full review Integrates well with tools that work with LinkedIn Sales Navigator to scrap lead emails. Makes it easy to manage large-scale cold email campaigns with 3+ steps. When a prospect replies to an email, it doesn't send them any of the automated emails which allow me to follow-up with those warm leads correctly. Read full review Cons LeadFuze could use more leads in other countries, we service Canada and find it not as robust as the US options While a large %, we do find invalid lead data when we run them through verification When contacts leave jobs or change positions, it's not always updated Read full review I wish there was a way to send more than 1,000 emails per day. If it had more integrations with data scrapers or ways to add new leads it would be much better. I'd like a way to go deeper into a lot of my stats on various emails. Read full review Usability
LeadFuze is super easy to get going and start to work with. There are videos to walk you through it but all you have to do is fill out the form that tells the system what kind of leads you're looking for and you're good to go - it does the rest of the work for you!

Very poor again. I booked 3 demonstrations with them, the first failed to support due to tech issues, the second one failed to arrive for the meeting, as did the third meeting arranged. I had difficulty trying to find anywhere to engage online with them, so the customer experience is very low down in my opinion.

Terrible; non-existent. Weeks without replies, and no improvements in 4 months.

LeadFuze has more filters than other software I've been using such as FindThatLead and Snovio and that gives me the chance to drill down even further into specific niches. Also, the system is really more user friendly and simple to use even more than other software I used in the past.

We decided on PersistIQ because it was cheaper than the incumbents and as we were starting we wanted to see if this would be helpful or relevant to us. We later discovered
.io and we might switch to them as they are also cheap and look better, but we might also get back to manual emailing and Linkedin connecting.
Read full review Return on Investment We have been able to reduce PPC spend and spend a fraction of that with LeadFuze. We are producing leads and a reasonable percentage is converting into orders and long term clients. Can't beat that. We now spend less time chasing and generating leads. LeadFuze does all the heavy lifting and we have more time to build the business. We have obtained several larger, long term clients from being able to get in front of them due to LeadFuze. LeadFuze helps us make that initial contact....the rest is up to us. That is the way it should be and the way I like it. Read full review Using PersistIQ has allowed us to engage more people more quickly than other outbound processes. So, more leads. We're able to understand message performance more rapidly and readily having used PersistIQ. PersistIQ has improved our bottom line by getting us more leads. So, increased ROI.
