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.

Outreach

It is best for people who send a lot of outbound emails and need reporting and feedback as to the success of their campaigns and/or emails. It is great for teams or people who are client or prospect facing. When I am sending an email to a client regarding on-boarding and I need to schedule a call with them, it's super helpful to know if they actually received my email and if they then read it. After that, it's more of a puzzle of trying to figure out how I can get them to respond to my email and trying to master what works the best for my emails whether that be a subject line, etc...

Pros

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.

Outreach

  • Outreach integrates well with Domo, which allows us to put together comprehensive reports pulling data from both Salesforce and Outreach.
  • Outreach does a great job of supporting you, by offering a responsive CSM and support team to troubleshoot issues.
  • It doesn't take too much time to onboard new users in the basic functionality of the tool.

Cons

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.

Outreach

  • I would love a small pop-up window to show when emails are opened.
  • It would be awesome to be able to grab open time slots from the calendar & incorporate them into a sequence for prospects to choose & auto update the calendar.

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.

Outreach is a tool that users need to be hands-on with Day 1, a simple coaching session can be effective to get started. However, in my personal experiences my effectiveness has increased tremendously the more digging I do on my own. The Outreach support team is easy to reach and often gets back to you the same day, so learning on your own is fairly easy.

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 feel like Outreach support reps provide better support about Salesforce than Salesforce does itself - we may have a better support package for Outreach than we do Salesforce, though. The support team at Outreach is also extremely available and conscious of our interests and use cases. We also still have regular Skype calls set up with Outreach and it is more personable than simply speaking on the phone - although we have texted our support reps at Outreach before for immediate responses!

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

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.

Outreach

Outreach has so many more features than I was ever able to find when using Yesware. The support team is an even keel and I was able to do similar things but with less automation. Storing and creating templates and snippets in Yesware was easier and it integrated more thoroughly with Gmail

Return on Investment

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.
Adam Boyd | TrustRadius Reviewer

Outreach

  • Our organization has seen a great ROI from this tool due most in part of the visibility it gives our leaders to view the number of outputs (e.g. Calls, Emails, etc.).
  • There is a fast ramping period with Outreach, so new users are able to get up and going right away and start utilizing it.
  • Some onboarding videos from Outreach to walk a new user through the ins-and-outs of the tool if they haven't used them would be really nice because management in a high growth company isn't always available for little questions throughout a day.
