LeadFerret Sprouts Directory of Contacts at Green Companies

The world human population has grown more in the last 50 years that it did in the first 4 million years. The idea that humans need to change the way they use the world’s resource and the rate at which they pollute the air, soil, and water is gaining in popularity. It’s not just the extreme tree-hugging hippie minority that sees the value in “going green” any more. Even within the largest companies in corporate America sustainability and environmental responsibility has become paramount. It’s hard to say whether this is simply the result of the desire to have a positive public image, or it’s simply motivated by the bottom line, but either way it’s happening. In addition to tax benefits available for green companies, recent studies show that the majority of consumers actually prefer to purchase from companies with a “green” reputation, making environmental friendliness good for business. As a result, 69% of companies polled reported having one or more “green” initiatives.

LeadFerret Posts Directory of Contacts at The Largest Private Companies

The difference between private and public companies is pretty straight forward in definition: anyone can buy stock in public companies though stock exchanges like the New York Stock Exchange or NASDAQ, while ownership in private companies is by invitation only, and they cannot legally sell shares to the general public. The natural course of the birth, growth, and evolution of a company typically means that with enough success they will eventually “go public.” However, in some instances that is not case, but private companies with $5 billion + in revenue tend to be very rare, which is why LeadFerret has chosen to highlight these companies with this specialty directory.

See the full directory at: https://leadferret.com/directory/largest-private-companies

In examining these companies, it makes sense to first consider why a company would choose to forgo the allure of public financing, recognition, and the prestige that comes with being listed on a major stock exchange. Of course, to be able to make the decision to remain private you have to have the cash to not need private funding, and a plan for long term sustainable leadership. In this way, private companies are rate because it’s not easy to remain private for multiple generations. Once a company has the means to remain private, they then also have to have the desire to stay private and the fortitude to turn down promises of big financial gain constantly pushed in front of them by wholesale lenders. Often time the desire to stay private is exactly as it sounds, the desire to be private, as in the desire to retain privacy. Public companies are held to stringent reporting and disclosure laws and under far more scrutiny than private companies. The overlying principal is that leaders of public companies and legally responsible to always make the decision that is in the best interest of their shareholders, while private companies can be guided by other principals like personal gain, spiritualism, causes they care about, etc.

This also means that private companies tend to make decisions more quickly, which, by itself, is reason to be inserted in these companies. Anyone that has a product, service, or solution that is particularly applicable or relevant to privately help companies should find this directory useful.

LeadFerret Unveils Enterprise Version of Their Popular B2BData Management Platform

LeadFerret is officially unveiling the new Enterprise version of their data management platform, LeadFerret Enterprise, at DMA 2015 in Boston, Massachusetts today. Historically, tools designed to keep sales, marketing, and management all on the same page have only focused on data already in your CRM or marking automation solution, but actual data acquisition and research on companies and contacts to be targeted has been disjointed and often redundant. LeadFerret Enterprise changes that by allowing all parties to coordinate data acquisition prior to it actually being acquitted.

There are already thousands of companies with dozens to hundreds of independently function individual LeadFerret accounts. These individual account could easily be researching and acquiring the same data, completely disjointed from one another, and with no control from management. Now these accounts can be linked to a common administrativeaccount, never pay for the same records twice, be assigned territories, have company-wide suppression lists automatically applied, and take advantage of many other tools to make their collective efforts more fruitful and coordinated. Sales teams can be empowered to build lists of target prospects they would like to have included in marketing campaigns, and upper management can have the piece of mind to know that they now have the ability to apply any desired filters to companies and contacts that their sales and marketing teams are researching and acquiring from the LeadFerret database. It’s a win-win for everyone, and with a single master subscription the company can achieve reduced volume pricing.

Project Lead and Senior Developer, Thor Melsted, explains, “To me, LeadFerret Enterprise equals synergy. Teams can now collaborate in an organized way, with a team leader who oversees their targets and can help them quickly meet their goals without wasting resources or time. One major issue teams can face is overlapping results, where more than one team member unknowingly purchases the same contact. With LeadFerret Enterprise, you won’t be re-billed for a contact if your teammate already has. One team, one charge. This one feature alone makes Enterprise pay for itself. Also, by overseeing a group of users, rather than having each one operating in isolation, is an invaluable asset, as you can be much more efficient and organized. You can directly limit the scope of your team members’ search parameters, like regions or industry types or minimum company size or even something as specific as a smartphone preference, then give them free reign to search within that scope.”

LeadFerret Enterprise has been designed to give users all the features and functionality that they already enjoy with their individual accounts, with the added benefit of collaboration. In fact, companies that already have multiple individual accounts can create an enterprise group and connect existing accounts in just a few clicks.

The LeadFerret team will be demoing LeadFerret Enterprise at booth 1053 of DMA’s &THEN event in Boston, MA October 5th through the 6th.

About LeadFerret
LeadFerret brings together the best of traditional business information and detailed data from hundreds of millions of social media profiles. Users can now access complete contact information, including email addresses, phone numbers, and social media profiles, through LeadFerret’s traditional cloud-based data management platform, LeadFerret Enterprise (for teams), or the new LeadFerret API. All users can search and view all data for free, and only pay when they choose records they would like to download or export. For more information, go to: http://www.LeadFerret.com
