Generate more leads in Europe using B2B company data

B2B leads can be generated through paid advertising and outbound / inbound lead generation. Paid advertising is about engaging potential B2B customers through ads on Facebook, Youtube, Linkedin, or other relevant platforms. Inbound lead generation is about passive content creation where your aim is to engage with your audience as much as possible and motivate them to contact you (videos, articles, blog posts, etc.). Outbound lead generation is more proactive. It involves contacting potential customers through cold calling, cold emails, messages on Linkedin, etc.

In the case of outbound lead generation, you will need a comprehensive and accurate list of companies you want to target and their contact details. There are two ways to get those:

  • An online search focused on relevant industries. This is usually time-consuming.
  • Searching through government registers. In this case, data is often incomplete, entered incorrectly, only available in local languages, and provided in formats that need additional processing (such as PDF).

None of these options provide more complex market insights that would tell you where individual companies stand compared to each other. Here is where the HitHorizons database and HitHorizons Screener can help.

HitHorizons aggregates 30+ data points on more than 80 companies from 60 countries (including the whole of Europe). HitHorizons Screener searches through the whole HitHorizons database based on filtering and sorting criteria relevant to you (company name, address, industry specification (including SIC Code), number of employees, sales performance, contact details, etc.).

Here is how you can get a list of leads using filtering criteria relevant for your industry and region

Let’s say you are interested in the whole of France. In this case, HitHorizons Screener would offer you a list of 9,917 companies.

In this case, HitHorizons Screener would give you a list of 2,555 companies. You can export all company data in CSV for further processing in any software (CRM, ERP, analytics software, data visualisation tools, etc.).
