I have built a business around reaching out to corporate decision-makers and engaging them in a way that leads to a discussion around economic development and expansion. There are a lot of factors that go into doing this successfully, but you can’t start the conversation unless you can find the contact information. The good news is that it just became easier to find quality contact information, and at a price that every economic development organization can afford.
Contact information used to be one of the hardest parts of the equation. The software tools were expensive, and the reliability of the data was questionable at best. In recent years, the quality has improved, and new integrations and features within those tools have become much better. However, the price point of the top tier contact data tools is extremely expensive. Software like Zoominfo is impressive, but it was built for corporations that are consuming thousands of contacts each year or even each month.
Well, things have changed. I just came across an amazing tool at a low price point for professionals that have an occasional need to reach out to someone they don’t know. Seamless.AI is an artificial intelligence tool that crawls the web to find email addresses for professionals at any company.
The tool integrates with LinkedIn and even company websites so you can pull contacts straight from a Google Chrome app while investigating a new contact or company. It integrates with Salesforce as well as other CRMs and marketing automation tools! The best news is, you can get this tool for $97 dollars per month for 1 user or $54 per user per month if you need five licenses. This is a fraction of the cost of some of the competitors in the space.
This tool is ideal for the economic developer that needs to find a contact for an occasional company for BR&E or might have time to reach out to 10-20 companies before a mission trip. Contact information is only the first step in the process but the opportunity to be more aggressive with outreach in economic development just became more accessible. I highly recommend you check out a free trial for Seamless.AI. I think you will be impressed!
