BUYER INTENT DATA
PR Newswire | June 02, 2023
Lead2Pipeline, a B2B demand generation service used by global technology companies, announced its proprietary database of buyers has grown to more than 57 million worldwide. The company successfully recruited thought leadership industry veteran, Jarrett Simisky, to keep up with rising demand for lower funnel programs. To align itself with its growing technology customers, the company moved its headquarters from New York to Austin, Texas.
Over the past twelve months, Lead2Pipeline's GDPR-first database has grown to more than 57 million global buyers, increasing 75% across Asia Pacific and 150% across EMEA.
The company is one of only twenty global lead gen providers certified by LeadScale for verified leads which exceed GDPR standards for digital compliance. This allows Lead2Pipeline to deliver fully GDPR compliant lower funnel demand gen programs via email and phone across the DACH region (Austria, Germany, Switzerland) in English, French and German.
Outside EMEA, the company has seen growth in Spanish-language programs across Latin America. Additionally, clients based in Singapore and Australia have been growing faster than their US counterparts, indicating a promising recovery for technology companies in Asia Pacific.
"Our customers rely on our database to reach technology buyers in each region," explained Chip Klang, Co-Founder and CEO at Lead2Pipeline. "Despite the global recession, they continue to build pipeline for their sales teams by focusing on data and exclusively targeting buyers demonstrating intent for their solutions."
As technology marketers face increased pressure to produce lower funnel (buyer-ready) leads for their sales teams, demand for research and survey-based content has grown significantly.
To help design and scale these lower funnel content syndication programs, Lead2Pipeline successfully recruited one of the industry's most experienced thought leadership sales experts, Jarrett Simisky. Based in Boston, MA, Simisky has driven growth and forged partnerships at prolific brands, including QuinStreet (acquired by TechnologyAdvice), TCI, and TechTarget.
"I'm excited to join Lead2Pipeline at a time when tech marketers are seeking guidance for their full funnel demand generation programs," says Simisky. "Lead2Pipeline's cutting edge intent signals allow our clients to target their high-quality content campaigns with precision."
As SaaS companies grew rapidly during the pandemic, many built teams outside the Bay Area, Boston, and New York. Austin, Texas has been a major beneficiary of this nationwide migration of flex tech workers. In addition to engineering and customer success teams, Austin hosts a thriving tech marketing community.
Earlier this year, Lead2Pipeline moved its headquarters from New York City, where the company was founded, to Austin, while maintaining a remote global workforce. The company expects to build strong relationships across the Austin tech marketing community, with key team members permanently based in Texas.
"Technology giants and well-funded startups are laying down roots in Austin. We see a bright future for the growth of this city, and we want to build alongside our clients." added Klang.
Lead2Pipeline helps drive growth for the world's most innovative technology companies, including VMware, Splunk, and BambooHR. Using artificial intelligence and privacy-protected intent data with full CAN-SPAM, CCPA, and GDPR compliance, the company delivers top, middle, and bottom of funnel demand generation campaigns across its proprietary database of 57M technology and business buyers worldwide.

Folloze, creator of the world’s first and only no-code B2B Buyer Experience Platform (BX 3.0), today announced Folloze plus Outreach, a new integration that enables customers to connect the power of Folloze BX 3.0 and sales engagement within the Outreach Sales Execution Platform. This new single interface allows sales and marketing to auto-personalize content experiences via Folloze boards to Outreach sequences with just a few clicks, unlocking agility and productivity, while starting a long-term, rich, data-driven relationship. Additionally, first-party behavioral analytics are now easily accessed through a dashboard that allows sales professionals and managers to focus their resources on the best opportunities, winning more deals faster.
“Folloze and Outreach provide teams with the ability to uplevel sales and marketing activities in their own respective ways,” said David Brutman, Co-founder and Chief Product Officer at Folloze. “The integration addresses a critical gap as budgets are shrinking and organizations strive to garner better results with current or reduced investments. By bringing these dynamic platforms together, joint customers that lean on their sales channels as a critical driver of engagement and pipeline acceleration will now have a more unified experience that amplifies value and drives greater performance and personalization.”
A Smarter Way to Drive Pipeline and Engage Prospects
By integrating the prospecting capabilities of two industry leaders, Folloze and Outreach help sales and marketing teams play to win from the first human touch by creating a better initial experience and the backend data to prioritize the most engaged and best opportunities. Marketers can orchestrate campaigns through a variety of channels such as ads, social media, physical mail, marketing emails, as well as with the sales team, all reinforcing each other with consistent messaging and content and one standardized analytics stream handed over directly to sellers. This provides the foundation for persistent profiling and ongoing experience continuity, enabling a stronger communication channel with less back and forth email messaging, which saves time and improves relationships. Campaign efforts result in actual pipeline creation, building a revenue engine like never before.
“Outreach is committed to making it easier for our customers to create pipeline and close more deals. We seek partners who further this mission, and Folloze definitely fits our criteria,” added Phillip Friedman, Head of Partner and Ecosystem at Outreach. “This integration helps sales and marketing teams become both more strategic and personalized in their prospect interactions, making each sales rep’s touch that much more impactful.”
The integrated solution makes that all-important first touch even more compelling for joint customers by allowing Outreach users to understand prospects’ behavior with Folloze’s first-party intent signals within the Outreach platform. This deep behavioral data allows sellers to focus on the most likely prospects and quickly respond to capture moments of interest with personalized content. These benefits lead to far more cohesive, efficient, and effective sales and marketing efforts.
“We look to get the most out of every tech investment, so we talked with the teams at Folloze and Outreach to see if there was a possibility to streamline the information flow to sales reps while keeping content consistent. We also wanted our sales reps to be able to take advantage of unique behavioral insights within one view,” said Benjamin Smokovich, Global Director of Innovation and Tech at SAP. “Our partners at Folloze and Outreach instantly recognized how compelling such an integration would be, and what they developed has far exceeded our expectations. Our teams are already reaping the benefits.”
Specific capabilities available through the integration include:
Add a Folloze board to an Outreach email with just a few clicks: Sharing an entire personalized experience is the most strategic way to engage prospects and track buyer behavior.
Add a direct link to Folloze content in an Outreach email: Taking it one step further, the integration makes it possible to share a killer piece of content within a Folloze board, incorporated into an Outreach email, to quickly grab a prospect’s attention.
Personalized Folloze board experience: Through a completely automated process, each prospect receives a customized and highly relevant experience that drives accelerated engagement and generates intent insights.
View account and contact engagement activity within Outreach: Thanks to a fully integrated Folloze dashboard, sales professionals and managers are able to get real-time, first-party intent data to prioritize efforts and understand what’s working.
Identity matching capabilities provide behavioral data: More insights give sales and marketing the ability to identify and truly understand who their prospects are so they can serve them much more effectively and efficiently at scale.
