💡 Fun Fact:

The package also includes the chance to manage contacts inside their system in addition to buyer intent indicators. These can be useful in detecting trigger events as trigger events create effects on a business that can lead to new priorities emerging within management teams, which in turn changes direction based off what’s needed going forward.
ZoomInfo’s costs range from $10,000 per month for basic plans to a maximum of $20 million annually. It is essential to remember that it comes with a contract and a minimum number of seats. Lusha has three different pricing plans. The most basic plan, which costs $99 per user each month, only includes 100 contacts monthly.

Zoominfo is not the solution for you if you don’t think your representatives will send emails frequently.

Often people look for role changes as a Trigger event to sell in their product or services. Although this is very powerful Trigger event we can often look for Job Posts to predict when a role change may occur.
