DataFox enables sales teams to grow their territories by searching our million-plus company database and narrowing their results with intuitive headcount, location, keyword and other filters. Here, we'll show you how you can use DataFox to find companies in your territory, with three examples.
- 51-200 person companies in California with at least $1 million in revenue
- Net-new fintech companies in the Boston metropolitan area
- Companies similar to your existing accounts in ZIP code 94110
The basicsYou can view and search our company database at https://app.datafox.com/search/companies/data (login required). From there, you can refine your results using any of the filters listed, or by any columns in the display.
To add columns (and therefore filter by them), click the "Change Columns" button and select the new datapoints you want.
Example 1: 51-200 person companies in California with at least $1 million in revenueLet's say your territory covers Californian companies with at least $1 million and between 51 and 200 employees. Here's how to find matching prospects.
First, filter by location. Under "Search by State," enter "California."
Next, filter by headcount. Click on "headcount" under the filter list, and set your target criteria.
Finally, under "Finance," select "Revenue" and move the slider to $1 million.
Now you have a list of 8,000+ accounts matching your location, revenue and headcount parameters.
Example 2: Net-new fintech companies in the Boston metropolitan area(Note: This method requires that you sync your Salesforce account to DataFox).
As in the first example, start by filtering by location. Open the Location filter, and under the "Metropolitan Hub" column, select "Boston Metro."
Next, click on the "Keyword" filter and select "Fintech" from the list of example searches.
Finally, make sure the "Salesforce Account Owner" column is visible, and under that column's dropdown, select "Filter."
Then, select "No Owner."
This gives you a list of Boston-area fintech companies not currently in your team's Salesforce account.
Example 3: Companies similar to your existing accounts in ZIP code 94110(Note: This method requires that you upload your existing Salesforce accounts into DataFox.)
First, navigate to the list of your uploaded Salesforce accounts by clicking on "Home," "My Lists" and the name of the list your accounts are saved into.
Then, click on the "Similar Companies" tab to see an algorithmically generated list of companies with a similar profile to your prospects.
Finally, enter your territory ZIP code (in this case, 94110) to the Postal Code section of the Location filter.
Now, you have a list of companies similar to your current accounts in the ZIP code of your choice.
