Regarding tech companies, there are many solutions that can help to optimize lots of processes in marketing, operations, and sales.  Today we are going to talk about Data Enrichment and how can help you to qualify prospects from your contact form.

What is Data enrichment

Let's start by the beginning. according to Red points global "Data enrichment is defined as merging third-party data from an external authoritative source with an existing database of first-party customer data. Brands do this to enhance the data they already possess so they can make more informed decisions." Or what is the same, to try to enrich your data with third-party Datasets.

There are different companies enriching data from third-parties datasets but we want to spot on Clearbit. Clearbit provides powerful products and data APIs to help your business grow. Contact enrichment, lead generation, financial compliance, and more.

What fields can we enrich with Clearbit?

The best way to enrich data from an email is when the email is a corporate one. Clearbit can enrich free domain providers like Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo, etc but is working better through emails like [email protected]

But… what kind of Data we can enrich and what fields we are able to run up? As a general rule Clearbit can enrich among others,  the following fields starting from a corporate domain or email: Address. Name, legal name, ticker, founded year, type, employees, annual revenue, description, location, technologies, used technologies, Crunchbase, Linkedin, Twitter, Facebook…

The most interesting part by our side is that you can manage all of this info through API, so you can move Clearbit info to third-party platforms like your CRM or in this case, to send it to Arengu in order to enrich your form submissions.
