That’s a green light for you as your solution can help them reach their end goal, and they have the budget for it.
So, how do you find and reach out to companies that just raised funds, without spending hours on manual research?
In this guide, you’ll get 3 workflow templates that will help you identify companies that raised funds & add them straight to your outreach campaign!
6-step workflow to target companies that raised funds
Step #1: Find interesting funding on Crunchbase
Currently, there are around 7 fundraising announces on Cruchbase each day:
[ ] Scrape Crunchbase's recent funding events with Piloterr
Step #2: Enrich fundraising companies with Crunchbase Data
[ ] Use Piloterr for lead enrichment from Crunchbase data
If you are selling to a niche audience, you can also use this step to filter companies by company size, industry, etc.
Step #3: Check your target’s status in HubSpot
[ ] Do an automatic look-up to research if the new lead is already in your CRM. This will return data such as the last time the account has been contacted or its status.
Here are the possible outcomes:
→ The search finds nothing
This means that the lead is new, so you can continue your workflow and contact the person.
→ The search finds a company
- If the lead status is “Open Deal”, it means that the sales team got already been in touch with this lead.
In this case, it’s helpful to send a Slack alert to your sales team so they are able to check what pages the prospect is visiting and personalize follow-up for higher conversions.
- If the lead status is “Attempted to contact”, it means that the sales team got already been in touch with this lead, but they aren’t responding.
This is your opportunity to create CRM follow-up tasks for your sales team.
