The kinds of leads that you are likely to get for free are ones that have been gathered in a scatterspray way – they could be poorly targeted, or in some cases even people who have not opted in at all. If you contact leads like this, then you will be putting your brand at risk, because you could end up in trouble with your web hosting provider, or the law, for unsolicited marketing. Alternatively, you could end up contacting people who might otherwise have converted, but who come to view your brand as a spammer because of the way the initial contact was made.
Lusha is available for an additional cost as a Salesforce native app, which seamlessly adds contact information directly into your Salesforce account. Lusha will also auto-enrich your lead, contact, and company profiles to include phone, email, and other contact information, even with just a name. Salesforce users should contact Lusha directly for pricing information. Lusha also offers integrations through Zapier to connect to apps such as Gmail, HubSpot, and Mailchimp.
