Prospect lists that are sold or rented are way better than they used to be. Because so much information is being collected, you can really dial in your targets. Here are some list-building tools to help you reach your dream clients.
Data.com is a crowd-sourced database. The free Data.com plan is limited. You can take a contact out of the database only if you enter one of your own. If you subscribe to a plan, you can take contacts out of the database without entering any of your own. You know all of the business cards from prospects that aren’t right for you? Trade them up for better prospects. Pricing for monthly subscriptions start at $21.
Radius is designed to make list-building easy and effective for companies that target small businesses (99.7 percent of all employers). Pricing starts at $99 per month.
Hoovers, which has been building targeted lists longer than anybody, is part of Dun & Bradstreet, so it has executive contact information and credit ratings on most businesses. Pricing starts at $1.20 a lead, but you can customize a plan to fit your needs.
