The Sales Navigator has allowed us to increase our awareness of our potential lead pool and has allowed us to grow our customer base. The system is easy to use and allows us to have great control over the number of leads we can see and the number of leads that we can connect to. Using the system has also helped us in being able to manage the number of leads that we can send.

It's a great research tool to give someone a direction but it's definitely not the most accurate tool. The agency hierarchy (it shows the holding company structures) and client relationships are awesome. Certain webcrawler activities should available in reports but on the other hand MR builts custom reports if needed. Overall, it's a great tool for sales development. It helps sales and marketing to get started but not to rely on it 100%.

Pros
LinkedIn
  • Has many filter capabilities for me to find exactly who I am looking for.
  • Integrates with other prospecting tools to create a well rounded with the information it can collect.
  • Integrates with SFDC- automatically uploads them as leads.
  • Integrates with Salesloft for me to easily start the cadence.

  • One of the strengths of Media Radar is that it has a lot of brands in the database. The big money spenders are there, along with smaller brands and startups. This is helpful when I'm looking for information for smaller brands, because I cannot say the same about other products I use.
  • The contact information is super organized and the site overall is very user-friendly.

Cons
LinkedIn
  • Sometimes it tells me I need to log into my LinkedIn profile when I've already logged in. It's weird. It seems to be when the email address is not found. Instead of just saying the email is not found, it tells me I need to log in. Just something I've noticed.
  • Sometimes I get this weird thing where I go to compose an email and instead of having it open all the way to the right, it opens all the way to my left. I'm pretty sure Rapportive is what's causing it. It doesn't happen very often but sometimes I see that.

  • I think the user interface could use improvement.
  • Would be nice to have more accurate phone # information.
  • Could be updated more frequently.

Rapportive is simple and great at what it does. Plus I anticipate they'll probably add more features in the future.

LinkedIn Sales Navigators provides different services than most other products and has the unique ability to take advantage of LinkedIn's proprietary user data. That also comes with a drawback that the system is dependent on users to update their data in a timely and accurate manner in order to get the correct intel back to users. I'd recommend other products like Seamless.ai or MediaRadar for more accurate and updated contact information, but also to use LinkedIn Sales Navigator for Gmail for better market and company intel, timely pitching opportunities and seamless integration between Gmail and LinkedIn.

MediaRadar is what my company chooses to use for this purpose because of a few specific unique things it does, such as tracking competitors and allowing us to make mock-ups.

Return on Investment
LinkedIn
  • Really lets me leverage my entire business network
  • Empowers me to see the prospect's whole picture (who they know, where they went, what they do) and take advantage of that opening
  • We have no other system like it, so it's irreplaceable for us

MediaRadar
  • Given the spend amounts in media, finding the right contacts has a big ROI.
  • Saves a lot of time by giving you the media/marketing contacts you're looking for in media.
  • They have a concierge to help you if it's missing contacts.
