What Subscribers Say
I have been using Business Wise for a wide variety of sales related programs including targeting precise business demographics via drip marketing or advertising/prospecting for specific products. Cannot argue with the results. All positive. The data is reliable and we even worked with their staff on creating a broad branding message that paid for itself the first day."
I've used D&B, Hoovers, InfoUSA and every other database out there. Business Wise wins, hands-down. I wish you were everywhere!"
Business Wise is the most compelling prospecting tool I have ever used! It has revolutionized my sales career by providing accurate prospecting data to intelligently penetrate new opportunities. BW has made a major impact on my leadership career at Sprint in business sales! Thanks to BW, I built the #1 sales branch in the entire company and now lead one of the top performing geographic sales areas at Sprint!"
Businesswise has continued to serve as the Charlotte Chamber’s primary business database for everything from research to sales. Businesswise is one of the best sources available as it is local and continuously updated. The Charlotte Chamber has been a subscriber for more than 6 years and could not be more satisfied."
I've used Business Wise since 1998, and I couldn’t imagine growing my NEW business without it. I love it. It's certainly helped me and my employers make a lot of money.
We started in 2011, grew 690% and 95% of our business came from prospecting through Business Wise daily. I wouldn't want to prospect in Metro Atlanta without it!"
Business Wise is without question the best contact database tool in the Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex and I have looked at all of them (nationally and locally). Not only is the data almost always accurate, but if for some reason it is out of date or incorrect, to be able to have your research group update it within 24 hours is a fantastic service. I would recommend Business Wise to ANYONE in ANY type of sales position. In fact, I would go as far as to say, if you are NOT using Business Wise to find leads and contact information, then you are absolutely, 100% losing deals."
I have been extremely impressed with BusinessWise since first working with them in 2009. Using BusinessWise allows me to identify key decision makers before I even pick up the phone. Knowing exactly who I need to contact gives me extra confidence when making those difficult cold calls. I've worked with other lead generation companies in the past, but those other services haven't been much better than cold calling straight from the phone book. Now, I can't imagine cold calling without BusinessWise - once you've used them you'll never want to go back to anything else."
Telemarketing is still a viable way to find new prospects. We are using the Business Wise contact list for the Dallas area and are very pleased with it's accuracy and the responsiveness to make it accurate if we find a wrong contact."
I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to use Business Wise. It makes such a huge difference helping us identify prospects. This product is incredible!"
I would love it if we could get Business Wise locally focused B2B data in for the Virginia, D.C, & Maryland market(s). I work for SolomonEdwards and we are a customer of yours in Atlanta. We have offices around the country in Vienna, VA, Wayne, Philadelphia, Chicago, Illinois, Dallas and Houston, Texas. It would be wonderful for our other offices to see the same success we have seen as a result of such a wonderfully detailed database!
You guys have a tool that would certainly add value to any organization’s marketing efforts.
Business Wise is Reference USA on steroids. It’s accurate. I wish you were in Miami, by the way. I think Business Wise should be an integral part of any company’s marketing efforts.
Really, email does work. Most years, Business Wise pays for itself (in ROI) after my first email message. The ongoing email marketing campaigns we do with Business Wise let our prospects contact us when the time is right."
I just added BWise Mobile to my phone. Great work. This is an awesome add-on! You guys are doing a great job adding services to help your customers. BWise Rocks!"
BusinessWise is a great tool! It allows our Sales team easy access to company data, and streamlines our business development efforts. Our company also utilizes the Drip Marketing tool to stay in touch with our target market."
I have access to just about every prospect mining tool in the world, but Business Wise is, hands-down, the most valuable tool I use in my local new business development efforts. I still can’t believe how quickly you guys update data. If I find something that needs updated and notify you, it’s usually there when I login the next day. Business Wise is a phenomenal tool!"
The more I use the program, the more I find. The more I find, the more I like! Business Wise truly has a phenomenal product. Keep up the good work!"
Our sales teams in Charlotte and Atlanta have utilized Business Wise for many years. Business Wise is an excellent prospect and customer database tool for Sprint. We easily validate company information or gain access to new prospective customers. When I asked my sales team members how they discovered a new acquisition customer recently sold, the answer eight out of ten times is (they found them) in Business Wise. Needless to say the return on investment has been easy to justify."
Just wanted to thank you again for working so hard to improve your system so Texas Security Bank staff can access it in a way that works best for us. It’s awesome to have someone listen to your needs and solve problems without delay! Thank you again!!"
Business Wise is the most comprehensive and accurate prospecting tool I have seen. It’s like having a research team at your fingertips. Their customer service reps are knowledgeable and friendly and go out of their way to find you the information you need. My favorite functionality is the LinkedIn link which saves time searching for profiles."
Not having Business Wise would be like going to a gunfight with a butter knife. It just doesn't work. I rely very heavily on Business Wise for account demographics, contact names and scheduling my cold calls. BWise is a very powerful tool, and I would struggle without it."
Business Wise is an important tool for both our new business development and permanent recruiting efforts. We have gotten significant ROI from it, and have landed many new deals as a result of targeting new opportunities with the data that Business Wise provides."
The Bolton Group has been a Charlotte, NC Business Wise subscriber since 2004, and our Atlanta, GA office has been using BWise much longer, since 2000. I use Business Wise daily for pre-call planning and creating lists. It really speeds things up when you have to look for contacts. We continue to renew Business Wise because it is the best! I’ve used Hoovers and other databases that were not as thorough, complete and accurate. I’ve had multiple placements using Business Wise, it’s definitely a terrific program, and Renee is awesome at researching firms."
I was blown away by the drip marketing messaging that you put together for us. It clearly indicated that you had taken a lot of time and clearly thought through ‘who we are’, ‘what we were trying to communicate to our prospects’, and ‘what we want to accomplish’ with your drip marketing program. The fact that you did this level of work, unprompted, meant a lot. I told my staff: now THAT's a company that has its act together."
The first thing I do is look up leads in Business Wise. I use Business Wise daily! It really helps me to save time and identify who I need to talk to. On a scale of 1-10, I give Business Wise a 9.5. It's a great new business development tool!"
We touch our prospects via telemarketing, postal mail & email marketing, and Business Wise is an invaluable tool for each of these prospecting processes. If you ever need a reference, send them to me."
Thanks Business Wise. While I'd hesitate to call prospecting for new business "easy", you make it much easier. We love the all-in-one approach that lets us access your up-to-date information with online access from anywhere. No more need to make our agents do data entry or research; neither of which they enjoy or excel. Now, they simply add their notes to the Prospecting Activity Manager and we're set. Y’all continue to do the research, the updates, the Drip Marketing, and provide the help with our target market and message. We'll set the appointments and close the deals...a perfect match!"
I enjoyed meeting you at the Business Wise training and at the Insiders Group meeting. I very much appreciate how useful the BWise tool is. I am very grateful that we have the capabilities for new business development that the Business Wise tool provides."
I’ve been extremely busy thanks to Business Wise. You have given me the opportunity to grow my base of business in Charlotte and surrounding communities. After 20 years in telecom management, I basically had to start over in a sales role. Your platform enabled me to reach key contacts within organizations I targeted and in many instances led to sales."
Business Wise has proven itself to be a great investment for us. Recently, our telemarketer set 2 appointments for me using BWise. The results? I closed 2 deals; one for 50K and one for 200K. Certainly some credit goes to the telemarketer,part credit belongs to BWise and some credit belongs to me! Where ever the proportionate kudos belong, I hope the results keep coming!"
I love the new BWise Web App. I previously used your software, and have found making the transition to the web app quite intuitive – it’s very easy to navigate. Business Wise makes it so easy for me to ‘clone’ my best clients – by easily targeting other companies that fit the same demographic profile. We also use a national real estate database to identify tenants in buildings, and I find the Business Wise data to be much more robust, more comprehensive and in-depth."
I use Business Wise everyday. It is a very important tool for me to do my job as a Selling Branch Manager...Anytime that I have questions or need more information, the staff at Business Wise has always been very attentive."
In a recent campaign seeking seminar attendees, I targeted 800 companies using Business Wise. After 75 calls I had 15 people enroll and another 22 that requested more information. So far, there was not a single wrong number or wrong contact. The campaign progressed from idea to 15 enrollments in 5 business days. What's more, my confidence and success with cold calling has skyrocketed thanks to Business Wise."
I just wanted to make sure and let you know that you are very fortunate to have Josh Goss as an employee! I work with Josh quite a bit, and he goes above and beyond in some way every time I engage him (answering questions that I should be remembering by now, fixing code issues, reviewing email tests, etc.). And on the few occasions when a problem with the system arises, he handles them with top notch communication, professionalism and customer service.
Josh is one of the main reasons I tell everyone that Businesswise has the BEST customer service of any company/vendor I have EVER worked with.
Have I told you how much I love BW today? Are you guys ramping up in other markets like San Antonio, Houston or Chicago? I have contacts in these cities that would go crazy for this tool!"
I have only been using Business Wise for about 4 months and have found it to be "hands down" the best client database I ever used. Previously I was an INFO USA client and was under the impression they were the best in the industry. Business Wise is ahead of them in ALL aspects based on my experience; from customer service to ease of use. With INFO USA my delivery rate for mailings was approx. 92% to date I am at 100% with Business Wise. In addition, the data fields they have are accurate and really let you identify a specific target. If the Business Wise database is used correctly the monetary impact created for the end user is tremendous."
