Frequently Asked Questions

How does it work?

Once you create an account, you will be able to run segmented contact search. We will run your search against different data sources and send you a link to the results in one hour time. For each person we find we will provide you with the company they work for, their position in the company, the industry and a way of contacting them (e-mail, phone, professional social media profile).

What Search Criteria Is Available?

For each search by industry, position keywords, companies and countries. You can choose to search only by industry, only by position or only by the specific company.

How do I get the best results using Datafy.it?

Use Datafy.it the same way you would use Google: type in the keywords and wait for us to browse the world wide web for you. Datafy.it comes with a predefined set of industry keywords. We have worked hard to come up with a set that provides the best results. Regardless, you will find that sometimes it is difficult to choose the right industry keyword. This can be because the keyword is very broad or because there are a couple of keywords that describe a similar field. We suggest you proceed by choosing a keyword that fits your needs the most. Keep in mind that more general terms usually yield better results. On some occasion you will discover that additional or a different keyword is required. This will be quite specific for each search you run because the data on the internet is very unpredictable. But after a few searches you should get a good feeling for what works and what doesn’t.
While picking the position keywords take into consideration that people describe their professional life in many different ways. We suggest you start with general keywords like manager, director or head, or keywords like sales, marketing, or similar. This is a preferred way as you can now explore the results and determine what specific keywords would fit your search better. Please take into consideration that search results can vary depending on demographics of a country. In some countries people will usually publish a lot of information about themselves on the internet, and in others, they rarely use internet for business purposes.

What if I don't get any results?

Don’t worry, if your search result comes up empty, it will NOT count in your search count. These results are actually a good thing, because now you know, that the keywords you used are not a perfect match for what you wanted to find.
With every search you run you become a more experienced Datafy.it user. Your business will be thankful. Also our team is always on hand to give you some handy advice or help you with your search, making sure that you are maximising the potential of Datafy.it.

How reliable are the email addresses?

Incredibly reliable! Datafy.it results are backed by an email tester software which makes sure that the provided emails are active, which means there are no ‘Hard Bounces’ when you run your email campaign. Furthermore, we guarantee no generic email addresses (e.g. sales@xyzcorp.com). All email addresses are professional personal inboxes (e.g. john.doe@xyz.com). This means that when you send an email, you can be confident it’s reaching the right person.

Why should I use Datafy.it? Can't I just as easily find the information myself?

Not with the same speed and accuracy as Datafy.it can. We help you save a lot of time and money. Instead of manually searching for the right business leads Datafy.it will do the hard work for you. A sales person simply doesn’t have the time or resources to search through the large amount of business intelligence we can cover. Let us do the legwork for you and spend your time starting new business relationships, conducting meetings, negotiating with prospects and closing deals instead.
If you or your sales development team ever had to generate your own leads, then Datafy.it is the ideal tool. We automatized the contact search and programmed the computers to do the work for you. No need to browse through professional network sites or spend valuable time cold calling companies trying to find who is responsible for buying what you’re selling. Simply set up a search then sit back and watch Datafy.it deliver high quality business contacts.

Is this legal? Where does Datafy.it get its information and how do I know that the information is up to date?

Yes. The data we process is all publicly available. We just do the heavy lifting and complicated computing to save you time. The information is gathered from the same publicly available web sources that are searched by other major search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo, and accessible to any person surfing the web. The information in the Datafy.it results is found in hundreds of public sources across the Internet and intelligently assembled into a single, concise professional profile using Datafy.it's proprietary technology.
Every piece of information on Datafy.it is taken from the internet at the time of the search, which means our information is always up to date. But as we know not everyone on the internet is busy updating their professional profile every single day, so in some occasions the information on the internet might portray the past situation.

Can I contact the prospects in your database?

Yes, of course you can, but you have to realize Datafy.it is a search engine, just like Google and others - we provide you the information, then it is your responsibility what you do with it. We make it as convenient as possible for you to reach out to a business prospect on a tailored and individual basis in accordance with privacy laws.
