LinkedIn Sales Navigator has amazing features, but TrackJobChanges may be all that you need
Updated on October 4, 2020
When it comes to employment data, let's face it, LinkedIn is second-to-none.
It's the de facto employment directory brilliantly executed so professionals feel pressured to keep their profiles accurate. Unlike Facebook and Twitter, which people usually don't keep up to date with their job changes, LinkedIn is able to get people to update.
Sales Navigator is LinkedIn's "advanced lead and company search tool". It's been around since July 2014 and has grown to be essential for thousands of sales management professionals.
Sales Navigator is the go-to for tool B2B sales professionals for social selling, finding prospects and building relationships. Instead of jumping from prospecting tool to prospecting tool, LinkedIn bundles everything you need into one refined selling machine that keeps your pipeline organized and makes your job easier.
But it ain't free.
LinkedIn doesn't give away their insights for nothing. You pay a hefty price for deeper access to LinkedIn's network whether you're an individual, sales team or business.
At the time of this writing, plans start at $64.99/month for individuals and $103.33/month for teams, and plans for entire businesses are on custom pricing packages. Medium and large businesses easily conclude that LinkedIn Sales Navigator is essential and fork over the cost. Freelancers, entrepreneurs and small businesses on the other hand? That's not always the case.
The most notable features of Sales Navigator are:
Sales Navigator is incredible, but you may be paying for tools you don't need. Unlike LinkedIn Sales Navigator, TrackJobChanges specializes in one thing: tracking job changes.
We use metadata that search engines collect on people (which often comes from LinkedIn) to find the most accurate employment data. We find that it's a great compromise because we don't depend entirely on any single source.
There's no denying the benefits of LinkedIn Sales Navigator, but if you already have a pipeline tool your happy with, you may not need all those extra features.
TrackJobChanges is ideal for owners, CEOs, and sales ops professionals who want to find more ways to juice growth and take advantage of every channel, including previous customers. TJC is also a great tool for keeping your CRM up to date, cleaning out old data, and feeding new leads to your sales reps.
