Here's another part of Prospect List Building Tools Review. This week we're presenting AeroLeads – a tool that helps you collect prospects' data from LinkedIn, and other platforms like Crunchbase or GitHub, among others. Pushkar Gaikwad – the founder of AeroLeads told me a lot about the tool by answering my 8 questions. I also gave AeroLeads a spin myself and I'm sharing my experience in the second part of this post.
Question: Is there a golden way for getting a quality contact list of sales leads? The answer, sad but true: No, there isn't. But there are at least three good enough ways worth trying. All of them have their pros and cons. Not all of them will match your particular process of generating sales leads. The key is to choose those that work best for you and your company. Here's a short analysis of the three ways to help you decide where to start from.

How do you know if your campaigns work or not? The answer is of course: metrics. What outbound sales metrics should you track? What affects delivery rate and what can you do to boost it?

In this article, we investigate the most important sales metrics for outbound campaigns.
Inbound vs Outbound – this seems like an endless dispute to me. On the one side, you've got people who claim outbound techniques are just wrong and unethical, whereas inbound is the only effective way to generate new valuable leads. On the other side, there are people who strongly advocate outbound, because that's what has really worked for them like no inbound tactic before. So whose advice are we supposed to follow? Which one works better in B2B: inbound vs outbound marketing?
