I work for TBM Consulting Group, and my focus right now is on their digital connecting product.
I am the Director of Business Development right now, so using Uplead to find new people to talk to has been awesome.
Part of the reason they brought me in was my past experience with driving new business into Deploy and into TBM.
They literally had no way of bringing other leads in, other than buying lists, and LinkedIn, and manually entering.
If you miss something, it’s not a pleasant experience: It’s mindless.
We’ve used analysts, we’ve used interns to try and do this, and it’s just a job nobody wants to do, so, figuring out a way to automate it was key to my success and the company’s success.
I’ve used other programs like UpLead in the past but the price point on other platforms was completely out of where we could handle right now. I had to look for alternatives.
That process was so easy, and so uncomplicated, and nonthreatening, and not salesy.
They had that first month for free. They called me back. They checked in with me.
My team have a weekly goal of adding new leads.
It was really hard until we signed up for UpLead and we were actually able to start doing some digging, and researching, and getting them in there easier.
Originally, it was 10 new leads a week, and we’re now up to 50.
We’re putting other new leads in.
Our website uses SEO, and the amount of leads that are coming in off of things like LinkedIn has gone up and we’re leading the company with that method. It started right around when I got UpLead and started adding new leads.
I would highly recommend it.
This is great for single-user startups, people moving down that path, that don’t have a ton of money or time to try to figure out how to get people in there. I’m pleasantly surprised with how much good information I can pull out of it.
