With advanced behavioral analytics, you can identify which of your target companies are engaging with your competitors, attending relevant events, or engaging with industry terms. Lead Onion’s social intent tool mines social media sites for interactions that may indicate buying intent. Companies engaging with your competitor, your target audiences attending industry conferences, or B2B buyers interacting with tracked industry keywords are some of the intent signals that the intent engine can pick up on

By equipping your BDRs with social intent intel, they can engage with in-market buyers before your competitors.

2. Public Intent

An important insight to have and a great conversation starter, growth signals such as newly acquired funding, can indicate the need for new products or services

With Lead Onion’s AI-powered intent data, your team can see which of your target accounts are expanding their business, are hiring, have secured new funding, announced changes in leadership, added a new technology or received industry recognition.

By identifying companies that are displaying growth signals before major announcements, your sales team can and reach out to them in real-time with highly personalized communications
