How Website Insights Can Help Grow Your Pipeline

When it comes to growing their pipeline, salespeople will generally invest most of their time in prospecting. And, in an effort to prospect successfully, those salespeople will generally be looking for something specific, targeting companies based on certain characteristics.

In our experience as a company data provider that has helped hundreds of sales organizations find more and better leads, we’ve found that there are three company characteristics that pretty much every salesperson will refer to when describing what they’re looking at when prospecting. They probably won’t come as a surprise to you, but those company characteristics are:

  • Location
  • Industry
  • Company size

Now, there’s nothing wrong with these data points—they’re tried and tested data points. That said, their popularity isn’t necessarily only due to them being meaningful characteristics to focus on. It may also in part be because they have been the most readily available data points historically. The reason for their widespread availability is that many countries have a local authority that collects this sort of basic company information when a company is registered.

How to create better LinkedIn Matched Audiences with Vainu data

LinkedIn is an incredibly popular—and powerful—tool for B2B sales and marketing initiatives, and their Matched Audiences presents a unique way for you to target a specific audience with your LinkedIn ads by, for example, uploading a list of accounts.

How to Use Website Traffic to Find Your Best Customers

The most visited websites in the world are—of course—well-known websites for most of us. In the Top 10, we find websites such as Google, Youtube, Netflix, Facebook, and Baidu. No surprises there.

Comparatively, the Top 10 most visited websites in specific categories such as SaaS, FinTech, E-Learning, and Cryptocurrency, or the most common CMS, Analytics, and E-Commerce technologies used by the world’s most popular websites are probably less well known for most of us. However, that needn't be the case. This kind of specific information doesn’t have to be less well-known or harder to get a hold of.

In fact, we’ve recently added data concerning the 7 million most visited websites in the world to our company database, which makes it easy to get a hold of this kind of detailed website information. This dataset, combined with our proprietary industry data, allows for the effective analysis of website popularity across many different sectors. Let’s take a look.

How to Find SaaS Companies: Free List of 1,000 Nordic SaaS Companies

How many SaaS companies are there in the world? How about in the Nordic countries? And how many of them focus on sales and marketing technology? And how about HR tech, AgriTech, or LegalTech?

So, how many SaaS companies are there in the world?

Industry Data: What It Is and How It Can Help You Find New Customers

Not all businesses are the same. This simple statement isn't especially controversial, yet it's surprisingly powerful. The statement implies that, since not all businesses are the same, they should not be treated as if they are, which provides support for the practice of market segmentation. In a nutshell, market segmentation allows you to concentrate your resources on the potential customers that are the most likely to be interested in your offering. An essential component of most B2B segmentation processes is identifying the organizational characteristics that make your offering more valuable to company A than company B. One of the most powerful and most frequently used forms of organizational characteristics in B2B segmentation is industry.

Technology Data: What It Is and How It Can Help You Find New Customers

The International Data Corporation (IDC) forecasts that the yearly global spending on digital transformation will reach $2.8 trillion in 2025. For the uninitiated, digital transformation refers to the adoption of digital technologies by a company, and it is generally pursued in the hope that these newly-adopted digital technologies will provide efficiency gains and customer intimacy.

The aforementioned statistic clearly highlights that the demand for digital technologies that improve existing business processes is, to say the least, significant. The growing demand for digital technologies presents an unprecedented opportunity for companies that are able to provide products or services that help businesses achieve these digital transformations.

Of course, life is never completely without its challenges, and a difficulty for providers of such products or services lies in identifying companies that use, or don’t use, certain digital technologies. Fortunately, there is something that can help such companies overcome such a challenge: Technology data.
