I'd like to welcome Bizjournals' 8,000,000 monthly unique visitors to our community. We look forward to their contributions in helping us build the most accurate database of people in business to do business.
Boston, MA (PRWEB) October 21, 2008
NetProspex today announced that it has reached agreement with American City Business Journals to integrate its Executive Corporate Directory with bizjournals, the online version of American City Business Journals (ACBJ) publications which delivers local business news to 40 metro business markets across North America. The partnership will extend ACBJ's online services and provide the ACBJ user community with access to new business opportunities.
NetProspex lets users access an extensive online directory that pools business contacts from a large community of business users. In return for sharing their rolodexes and sales and marketing databases, users can find accurate contact information for executives from CEO's to difficult-to-find, mid-management decision-makers.
To ensure accuracy, NetProspex validates all contact records added and only 100% verified contacts are published in the directory.
Gary Halliwell, NetProspex CEO: "I'd like to welcome Bizjournals' 8,000,000 monthly unique visitors to our community. We look forward to their contributions in helping us build the most accurate database of people in business to do business."
Tim Bradbury, American City Business Journals President of New Media: "Bizjournals is constantly looking for additional content based services and tools that can assist their customers in building their businesses. The Netprospex suite of services provides our users access to greater local, regional and national data that is essential for customer acquisition and retention. American City Business Journals selected NetProspex's business contact exchange after considering alternatives from established players. NetProspex's solution is uniquely suited to providing our users with a proven and effective way to get access to new sales and marketing opportunities."
NetProspex lets users trade old contacts for new based on the fact that once a sales or marketing executive has exhausted a list of prospects, the value of that information declines significantly. Users can leverage "used" sales leads to find valuable new targeted, sales opportunities. NetProspex makes trading contacts simple, quick and easy. In a few seconds users can upload their data and NetProspex takes care of the rest - matching and verifying contacts so that only 100% validated contacts are loaded to the database.
NetProspex was recently endorsed by Shannon Kavanaugh, President of sales and marketing resource center Go-To-Market Strategies: "NetProspex contact exchange is easy to use and we found the information we exchanged expanded our list of prospect significantly."
NetProspex was founded in 2006 by Gary Halliwell and Jeff Clewley, two veterans of the electronic financial information market. NetProspex understands that effective sales efforts require the most in-depth and accurate prospect data. The company's core product line overlays user-contributed contact information with multiple layers of quality control to produce an entirely unique and highly effective sales and marketing contact database. With over 3.9 million accurate business contacts across almost 600,000 companies, NetProspex is a major new source of contacts - including difficult-to-find mid-management decision makers across North American businesses.
