LinkedIn Sales Navigator's search functionality is far superior to any of its competitors The lead quality is also far rich in terms of having the right information in CRM LinkedIn Sales Navigator does not have a very good Sales Intelligence feature - like the ones present …
Chose LinkedIn Sales Navigator
Sales navigator is a good platform however there aspects where Apollo.io and Lusha enrich the prospecting quality, When you used together does give you the best possible results
Chose LinkedIn Sales Navigator
LinkedIn has a social selling presence that is hard to achieve with the others. It also helps build rapport for future opportunities.

Chose Lusha
LinkedIn Sales Navigator and DiscoverOrg are both in the sales/marketing intelligence market, but they all have their own niche. DiscoverOrg is excellent for list building, Sales Navigator is great for social connections, and Lusha is excellent for hard to find contact …
Chose Lusha
Lusha was simply easier to use, with better contact data as per the anecdotal evidence from my sales reps. It also had a simple interface that did not require much implementation, and a pop-up on where we source our leads, which is linkedin. This led to hassle-free usage and …
Chose Lusha
Lusha is the best for getting mobile numbers, which is the main reason for getting a tool like this in the first place.

I referred Lusha to a sales manager in another company who has a good experience as well.
Chose Lusha
Lusha is a lot quicker and more accurate than Cognism is when returning results regarding prospects and targets. It also costs significantly less than Cognism. Cognism does, however, integrate with HubSpot which makes it easier during prospecting sessions to get information …
Chose Lusha
We previously used infotelligent, which was similar, but seemingly more expensive for nearly the same result. There was a learning curve with migrating over to Lusha, but overall we seem to be doing well as a team.
Chose Lusha
Zoominfo is better, we switched as it was told to us that we'd have more good numbers. Lusha does have a few more good numbers, I believe, but many, many more bad numbers for people in the U.S.
Chose Lusha
Lusha is definitley a more cost effective platform than Zoominfo. If you are just looking for contact info relating to a lead, I would recommend Lusha over Zoominfo strictly due to cost. However, with the higher cost, Zoominfo does have great functionality and additional …
Chose Lusha
I used a lot of tools, but Lusha is the most accurate and precise data. Other may have a better user experience inside the platform, but it doesn't really matter if the data generated doesn't convert into sales. Lusha also provides phone numbers, which is fantastic, and most of …
Chose Lusha
The quality of data Lusha provided is better than that of RocketReach and we had a cost effective deal from Lusha's team as well. Our team found the user interface of Lusha way better than that of RocketReach. Also, the integration that Lusha provided was not seamlessly …
Chose Lusha
Positive - Usability and interface
Negative - Accuracy and availability of data
Chose Lusha
Zoominfo is on par with Lusha in terms of quality of contacts but is far more expensive. Hunter.io is fine if you only need business contacts but fails in comparison with Lusha's broader options. I have used other solutions but they did not come close to working and I don't …
Chose Lusha
Lusha works best in terms of India location. In comparison to other tools, this was the best we could find for our specific geographic location after our research through various means and a few recommendations in the industry. Also, Lusha gives ease of access, and the …
Chose Lusha
With its intuitive easy-to-use Chrome extension, Lusha has been able to provide the contact information for prospects or leads. The details are always correct. There are hardly any chances that you would not find the contact details. It is the best among all I have evaluated or …
Chose Lusha
It's all about the data. I feel Lusha Extension provides better data for certain geographies.
Chose Lusha
ZoomInfo is better in the US, but more costly. Lusha is better in the EMEA. The problem with Lusha is that you don'y know when data was last updated. I use both in order to get the best of both worlds.
Chose Lusha
I don't use Lusha alone, but rather as a supplement to other products, chief among them, Zoom. It's not as extensive as Zoom but it often has contact information that I'm not able to find there. The platform is not as well built but their LinkedIn integration is easy to use.
Chose Lusha
Lusha is more accurate than these tools and very easy to use. Their customer support team is very responsive and always available 24/7 for any help. We were looking for these things for a long time.
Chose Lusha
Lusha was less expensive than any of the above listed platforms. The interface is simple and thus easy to use even for a novice. It is easy to train people on once and never need to train them again, cutting down time spent not interacting with our future clients. For platforms …

LinkedIn
Flexible Saved Searches: I love how we can save a very complex search created for future use so that we don't have to repeat it again and again. The cherry on the top is that you can even share this saved search with your other colleagues having the LinkedIn Sales Navigator license. Access to Decision Makers: With a single click, I can filter out decision-makers in any company. This is again a time saver in many ways. Alerts and Reminders: which can be set custom-based covering specific use cases. For example - if prospect A changes companies today, I can get an alert for it on my email (the only drawback being I need to manually save this prospect in a list first).

Lusha is well suited for sales teams that have a clear target of companies to reach. It needs to work with LinkedIn, so if you have a Premium Sales Navigator LinkedIn license your results will be much better. It still works for teams without Sales Navigator licenses, but I highly recommend to buy the license.

Pros
LinkedIn

  • InMails - The ability to send direct messages to prospects via InMails can be a differentiator for some reps
  • News Feed - Stay up to date on organizations you are targeting to send relevant messages that resonate

Cons
LinkedIn
  • LinkedIn Sales Navigator is very powerful, but not super well documented.
  • The tool does not allow for the export of list names, which is disappointing for a tool at this price.
  • LinkedIn's search is loosey goosey, you'll find that it includes names that just barely fit the criteria.

Lusha
  • It would be nice to have a general idea of how many contacts it has information for on a particular account at the very start before scrolling through the different pages.
  • It would be great to also have the titles of individuals on the list, so it's quicker to sift who to keep in or exclude prior to revealing details.
  • No product is perfect! Some of the information generated can be inaccurate or generic, e.g., a phone number for a persona may not be direct for that individual but could be a general customer service number for the company and could be the same number listed for multiple prospects.

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.

Usability

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.

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.

Platform setup is very easy and friendly. Lusha is not complicated as other competitors like Zoom and Discover org etc.; easy to use and discover candidates for our roles. All of our recruiters find this platform very user-friendly, and they are very happy using this service. Admin support from Lusha is always available, and they are ready to help and educate our team.

linkedin has way better data cleanup and relevant contact information. It provides a great insight into how to target personally your prospects, and gives great engagement highlights. ZoomInfo is sometimes outdated, the prospect has moved companies or is no longer employed there-- alot of filtering through the weeds can be hard if you are trying to hit high metrics and make your time valuable

Zoominfo is on par with Lusha in terms of quality of contacts but is far more expensive. Hunter.io is fine if you only need business contacts but fails in comparison with Lusha's broader options. I have used other solutions but they did not come close to working and I don't even remember what they were.

  • More time Selling, Less Time Searching: B2B selling today is all about how fast you can reach your prospects. Searching for contact information was daunting and painful a few years back. With 1-click imports, integrations and hunts: tools like Lusha are a massive benefit in terms of saving time in the ever laborious task of List Building.
  • Better Phone Numbers: Especially in regions like EU and APAC, where mobile numbers are not available with tools like ZoomInfo and Apollo, Lusha comes as a saviour.
