Decide which Search to Conduct and create a New Campaign [Prospect Search Enginge]

There are three Search Types:

  1. Industry: Target businesses by specific industries or vertical niches within chosen locations.

    • Strategy:

      • Start with an Industry Campaign (ensure familiarity with the "create a campaign" process).

      • Input the specific industry, business type, or niche you want to target.

      • Set the desired location for the search, e.g., North Carolina.

      • Optimize results by searching at the suburb level.

  2. People (LinkedIn profiles): Find professionals based on their roles or keywords from their LinkedIn profiles.

    • Strategy:

      • Begin with a People Search campaign.

      • Search for roles or specific keywords found in LinkedIn profiles, e.g., "BDM" in Chicago.

      • Results will provide details such as the individual's name, title, company, and email (if available).

      • Users can directly connect with these individuals on LinkedIn via the platform.

  3. Single: Focus on searching for employees from a specific company.

    • Strategy:

      • Begin with a Single Search campaign.

      • Input the name of the desired company, e.g., Tesla or USPS.

      • The system will then collect the contact details of employees from that specific company, though not every company might display email addresses.
