The Fastbase software analyses over 6 billion website visitors from over 1 million companies every month and turns static data using real-time behavioral insights from prospects into actionable information.

LeadScoring is tracking technology that enables businesses to engage with prospects and customers faster than ever before, automatically identifying and scoring the visits of each individual according to the pages viewed. When the score indicates ‘sales qualified’ or ‘ready to buy’ the salesperson can act with speed to close the business.

In marketing, there are two primary types of data available: ‘first-party’ and ‘third-party’. First-party data refers to data that a company has collected from their own consumers. Third-party data on the other hand is information collected by an entity that doesn’t have a direct relationship with customers. Fastbase collects freely available data from a variety of sources and then consolidates it to resemble ‘first-party’ data.
From a digital marketing perspective, first-party data is the most valuable data a company can have. Historically third-party data is used to help expand an audience and potentially reach new customers but the performance of that data on a CPL/CPA basis is often well behind that of first-party data. What Fastbase does with their data is to offer their customers the ability to use third-party data with a first party feel to capture more new leads at a cost per comparable to first-party data.
Fastbase’s solutions strongly align with market trends. The global big data analytics market is expected to grow to 274 billion U.S. dollars by 2022 with companies acknowledging the importance of data analytics in lead generation and conversion. 53% of companies allocate more than half of their budget to lead generation, with 58% stating their lead budget will increase. 74% of companies state that converting leads is a top priority whilst 65% state that lead generation is a top challenge.
Fastbase’s solutions are very robust and are designed to work with companies of any size. Whether you are a promising start-up or one of the world’s largest companies, Fastbase’s products will help your company improve your sales and digital marketing initiatives.
Pricing Models to Fit Your Business’s Needs
Fastbase operates a SaaS business model. WebLeads can be used for free after an initial 30-day trial period (however with reduced functionality). Users can choose to continue on a standard Premium subscription model, which starts at $39 per month and increases depending on the number of profiles/websites your company chooses to monitor. Fastbase also offers a Premium+ subscription at $375, a professional level solution for advertising agencies.
Staying at the Forefront
As technology has advanced around areas like machine learning and artificial intelligence, the ability to synthesize large amounts of data and find the right data points are critical. Businesses are constantly looking towards technology and data to provide insights faster and at a larger scale by identifying aspects of the business that can be accelerated — one is a constant stream of leads which is fundamental for revenue growth and the other is information that can provide a significant advantage in competitive markets. Fastbase’s mission is to stay at the forefront of this field providing customers with the latest in marketing automation and sales management software.
How will AI make a difference?
Sales teams tend to spend far more time qualifying leads than they do closing leads. The amount of time that could potentially be saved by having algorithms in LeadScoring check leads against long and complex lists of criteria could give sales teams a much-needed boost. If there is any doubt on this, Salesforce has claimed that successful sales teams are 4.9 times more likely to be using AI than unsuccessful ones.
Marketing automation and campaign evaluation
A major area in which automation can save working hours is in less creative marketing activities. Choosing when to respond to emails, creating tailored responses, and conducting customer surveys are just a few things AI could help with. Marketing teams can spend time on planning campaigns rather than reporting on the success (or lack thereof) of a campaign – this alone would probably justify ROI in Fastbase’s lead generation SaaS solutions.
LeadScoring from Fastbase can keep tabs on a person, see what content they have interacted with, and match it against any other profile data, creating personalized email experiences for customers, only sending them what is relevant to them and will keep them engaged and converting.
