LeadGnome’s target customers are B2B account based marketing and sales professionals. What Benati discovered during his marketing career was that most sales and marketing teams were not in synch; resulting in lead based marketing strategies that were not aligned with the sales team’s focus on accounts. In a B2B sales environment, it’s not uncommon to engage as many as 17 people before a purchase decision is made. This makes finding the correct leads within a target account and maintaining the CRM a tedious task. With The Radicati Group estimating more than 128.8 billion B2B emails will be sent and received per day in 2019, LeadGnome is selling into the sales and marketing technology segment with a total addressable market (TAM) size of $70B.
