RocketReach is basically a large database of profiles where you can search to choose the right ones suitable for your campaign. You can also start from a website and using the RocketReach browser plugin you can get names of the people who work there (and who have an email from the same domain).
RocketReach claims to have customers such as Apple, Google, Amazon, Facebook, and 95% of the S&P 500 🙄 and that they collects publicly available data counting up to 700 million professionals, at 35 million companies, worldwide.
RocketReach is a product designed primarily for salespeople and provides you with names, titles and company in addition to the contact information and social presence. The purpose is to produce a list of emails and phone numbers with the possibility to search by industry category and company size.
Jobin in comparison, uses profiles with full bio and in addition to basic information you can
also get the complete career history, skills, achievements and many other information
normally used by recruiters.
This allows for solid profiling possibilities because a database with hundreds of nodes and data fields allows for filtering and ranking at the level of an advanced ATS.
This is suited to the demanding requirements of Recruiters for Candidate screening prior to a job interview.
However, the trend among marketers, salespersons and entrepreneurs is to invest more and more time in screening and prospecting their targets. Therefore, access to insights is often useful for initiating discussions, finding connection points, building relationship with your prospects, and increasing the success rate in making new contacts.
When higher level prospecting is needed, Jobin is better suited than RocketReach because Jobin is able to filter on many more data fields and also has the ability to access advanced ranking tools to clean and prioritize lead lists. RocketReach allows you to consider only role titles and the company.
There is another point to consider: the freshness of the data. In fact, the problem with large databases like RocketReach, is that often data you find in there, it's difficult to keep up to date. So it's quite common to extract from RocketReach a business email of someone that now is in a new company with a new email ... that is disappointing. 🙄
In the case of Jobin there is always the possibility to automatically update any profile simply by checking their LinkedIn.
The advantage is that each person maintains their LinkedIn profile fairly regularly.
Jobin can perform this operation in bulk and in background, even indicating when the last profile-update was performed. Changes in professional experience are also quite important for recruiters.
The main difference between Jobin and RocketReach is that Jobin not only allows the Lead Generation and advanced prospecting on demand using Linkedin, but also manages multi channel outreach and CRM features such as lead tracking along the pipeline stages, tags and annotations to keep track of the details of any interaction.
RocketReach cannot perform any of these operations and you must purchase another toolset that includes a CRM to perform these necessary operations.
This results in a sensible money-saving and most importantly, a time-saving advantage because this totally eliminates any data transfer operation between different products and everyone knows that these things are not always 100% smooth.
To buy publicly available emails scattered on internet, there are several options based on scraping from social networks and other sites. In particular, Jobin offers FREE all publicly available emails and contact information and charges only for those not available.
Jobin has advanced management of both work and personal emails with automatic detection and their correct use according to your messaging needs. In case of a missing email it could be found on request even during an ongoing campaign.
Both Jobin and RocketReach have the ability to use your own mailbox to send emails
but managing and editing the templates and smart fields available to personalize your messages is better on Jobin.
In addition Jobin also handles LinkedIn messages and the invitation to connect.
RocketReach does only emails.
The lower plan offered by RocketReach is called "Essentials". It costs $59 per month and gives 125 email lookups per month (billed monthly)
or 1,500 lookups per year (billed annually).
Then there is the "Pro" which costs $119 per month and gives 300 email lookups per month (billed monthly) or 3,600 lookups per year (billed annually).
The most expensive plan is the "Ultimate" and costs $299 per month and gives 833 email lookups per month (billed monthly) or 10,000 lookups per year (billed annually).
RocketReach allows you to try for free with 5 lookups per month.
These plans are for Emails only.
If you are also interested in phone numbers you have to pay more and set up your subscription accordingly.
You can exceed your plan allocated lookups if 'Additional Lookups' are enabled in your account settings. Additional Lookups are billed to your account at the end of the month and depending on your plan, range from $0.30 to $0.45 / lookup.
Jobin is an all-in-one package with multiple modular solutions to find, screen and outreach people. These core features are always available within a Free plan, but you can upgrade anytime on your own with fast purchasing requests with one or multiple optional solution upgrades available.
If you stop paying you can still enjoy a usable Free version that keeps all your data available and has
several features that may be enough for some small business or occasional use.
There is the flexibility to upgrade or downgrade single solution packages to follow your current needs and be ready for future expansion of your business.
RocketReach is only useful for lead generation and not for list management or any outreach. The cost for this single functionality is much higher compared to what Jobin offers. Then you must consider buying additional tools and dealing with data-transfer issues that cost you time.
Then there are some issues with data accuracy in RocketReach.
In conclusion we can say that there are several reasons to choose Jobin instead of RocketReach.
