Instead of building the ICP on commonly available firmographic variables, the ICP is customer service based and defined through the discovery process. A bespoke taxonomy is created that applies custom tags by persona, industry, size, etc.
“We want to align your database with your go-to-market strategy,” Feldman told GZ Consulting.
RevenueBase promises to “replace all of your data vendors with one solution” that “reaches every company and decision-maker across the globe that will benefit from your unique offering.” By delivering high-quality, targeted data, revenue teams can shift from managing databases and researching prospects to creating campaigns and focusing on selling.
RevenueBase employs AI for aggregating and integrating its multi-sourced data with the AI building a quality hierarchy for selecting which field to accept when vendors disagree on a value. The research team assists the AI modeling by collecting training data.
Data quality steps include custom research, quarterly email re-verification, and annual phone checks. Data is delivered via a quarterly secure CSV file transfer with a 90% accuracy SLA.
Content includes standard firmographics, mined and licensed business descriptions, sizing ranges, industry codes (SIC, NAICS, and custom), contact information, and technographics. Funding data includes total funding, most recent round amount, and most recent round date. While full family trees are not available, locations are tied to parent companies.
Contact data includes mobile numbers, direct numbers, LinkedIn URLs, tenure at current job, work addresses, and mapped persona.
RevenueBase has already aggregated 700 million business contacts and 100 million companies, providing it with one of the most extensive sets of contacts in the industry.
Intent data and sales triggers are not currently available.
RevenueBase provides opt-out notifications to its customers, letting them know when an individual has opted out of their database or the database of one of their contributing vendors. It also suppresses California mobile numbers in support of CCPA.
RevenueBase is off to a strong start. Since soft launching the service in October, they have generated $800,000 in revenue and have a $500,000 ARR. Early success has allowed it to launch the service without accepting outside funding.
The firm is still in the early stages of development. It has focused on building its content aggregation model, custom research, and customer service/discovery model based upon Feldman’s experience as both a B2B marketer and data industry executive. As such, RevenueBase has an advanced DaaS vision but does not yet have APIs and connectors for data delivery. However, it has a unique approach that is gaining early market traction. Initial customers include Siemens, PTC, Localytics, SolidWorks, and CB Insights.
RevenueBase is sold as a flat-rate subscription service between $50,000 and $100,000 per annum. Additional fees are applied for custom research. RevenueBase is headquartered in Boston.
