How Can You Use Beauhurst to Find Networking Opportunities?
SARAH CHEESEMAN, 08 JUNE 2023
We have more data at our fingertips than ever before, and yet it’s increasingly difficult to know what’s trustworthy or current. Many find it tricky to find the right kind of information to help grow their business, and the lack of one centralised and accurate source of authority has been a hindrance. Until now.
BeauhurstSales is a unique and powerful platform that brings together data from hundreds of sources—from Companies House to news publications, to private sources. The result is the ultimate source of UK private company data.
Users of the BeauhurstSales platform can quickly search across this vast pool of data—filtering by hundreds of different criteria—to create lead lists or networking opportunities. Turning tasks that would have taken hours into ones that take minutes.
Many of our clients use BeauhurstSales to build networks and find people within target industries, thanks to the ‘My Network’ tool. It allows you to capitalise on your existing relationships and create connections with top entrepreneurs, angel investors, C-suite executives, directors and shareholders in the companies and areas of interest to you.
How can BeauhurstSales help to boost my network?
You already know that networking is crucial for business development and keeping abreast of the market. And while social media tools—think LinkedIn—have been around for almost 20 years, it’s often ineffective when it comes to targeted, personalised approaches.
With BeauhurstSales, you gain instant access to huge amounts of information, allowing you to:
Grow your network
Our detailed data enables you to uncover key contacts that you want to connect with. Whether you’re looking for people within your industry, those with specific backgrounds or experiences, or you want to learn more about your competitor’s network, it’s all possible with just a few clicks.
Develop existing relationships
The ‘My Network’ feature means you can make the most out of your existing network. By building your own relationship ecosystem on the platform, you can understand all of the businesses your contacts are associated with. This illuminates how your connections can facilitate new opportunities, enabling you to take advantage of warm introductions more easily.
You can also receive alerts on the companies people in your network work for, so you’re in the loop when their key people change, they receive funding, or are granted patents.
Share knowledge with people in your sector
Growing your business isn’t always just about staying ahead of your competitors, sometimes it can be even more helpful to share knowledge and innovate together. Beauhurst provides a friendly and genuine starting point for these conversations to help you develop business opportunities. This can be especially helpful for companies that want to create and be part of communities within their industry.
Understanding who you and your colleagues are connected with can be incredibly valuable when it comes to outreach. Our platform enables you to identify where you can create a warm introduction, to avoid you having to undergo cold outreach.
Conduct due diligence
When you need to find out more about a company, their recent transactions or certain people, your shared connections offer a helpful means of verification. Reaching out and asking questions, alongside your due diligence, reveals a lot more than you may have been able to discover on your own.
Tap into founder’s networks
Understandably, partners and directors within a firm have far less time to carry out large scale networking on their own, and this is often a task that is passed down to sales development representatives (SDRs). The BeauhurstSales platform gives you a really easy way to do this, providing them with all the details of your ‘little black book’ without having to actually hand it over.
What can I use BeauhurstSales data for?
There are a number of searches that our clients use regularly to help develop and grow their networks, including:
Searching for people and businesses within a particular sector with a high level of accuracy is a game changer. Our platform lets you dig deep into the details, so you can quickly and easily pull up lists of people and businesses within specific sectors. Meaning you’re always aware of new entrances within a sector, ready for making connections before anyone else.
A huge number of people searches take place every week on BeauhurstSales. For example, one recent search was for founders of businesses below a certain age who have recently raised funding—revealing young entrepreneurs that may have interests in other business development opportunities. Alternatively, our other clients search across the platform to discover high net worth individuals with whom they can build relationships with.
And because the information stored on our platform is constantly updating, you can be sure you’re working with correct, up-to-date information with which to build your approach. Thanks to our team of 60+ data experts working with the latest machine learning models, our data is trustworthy.
