Imagine how great it would be to build a profile of your ideal customer, and then find plenty of prospects that match that profile, all in just four easy steps? And what if your sales and marketing teams could easily “vote” on those leads, ensuring only the best of the best make it into your virtual lead database?
That’s exactly what you can do with Leadspace, the leading B2B social demand gen solution. Leadspace uses semantic search technologies, so you can tap into social, internal and external data in real time to discover, enrich and enhance prospect data. What’s more, Leadspace incorporates subjective input as well, using a Pandora-like interface that allows your team to score and prioritize each lead.
