As a Pearlfinders client, you now have access to every piece of content we've produced in your area - an archive of thousands of reports, reviews, contacts and insights. With the Advanced Search feature, it's simple to find relevant reports. Here are a few pointers to get you started.
First use the drop-down menu to select whether you would like to search for All Content, Reports, Contacts or Companies.
Keywords – A great way to uncover prospects that could be open to investing in a specific service you offer is to run a search based on keyword. Search not just words relating to your niche expertise, but also words associated with challenges that you feel you can help solve. Think laterally here and use broader terms rather than ultra-specific jargon.
Postcode search – Search for companies within a certain radius of your office to leverage your local knowledge and willingness to easily meet in person. Your ability to get on site quickly could give you an edge over a competitor!
Company criteria – Narrow your searches to companies within your sweet spot by searching for those that meet certain criteria (e.g. turnover, profit or number of employees). This will help you easily define the size of prospects but also identify smaller prospects that you might not otherwise be aware of.
Job title – Search for individual contacts by job title (e.g. Marketing Director) so that you can run a targeted campaign to decision-makers or key contacts. All contacts are fully exportable using the Excel button.
Sector – Search for contacts in a particular industry so that you can run sector-specific campaigns demonstrating your particular expertise in that vertical.
Verification Score – All contacts are verified and come accompanied with a score to give you an indication of how recent that contact is. You may want to narrow search results based on this verification score.
Find a company - Use the company drop-down tab to search for particular brands or subsidiaries of holding companies.
Company information - You now have access to company information for a large database of companies, all fully searchable by financials, location, sector and keywords. This may be to help research a prospect ahead of making an approach or simply to find contact details (company address and telephone number).
Additional company information – Through our partnership with Hoover's and Dun & Bradstreet you can also view any available lists of directors, shareholders, financial information and competitors.
