We sat down with Keith Southern who is the Co-Founder and Partner of the Power Hive. Keith has been using ContactOut for roughly 5 years. The first 2 years were with a previous organization and the past three years have been with the Power Hive. As a Co-Founder and Partner, Keith wants to see the Power Hive community grow. The only way to do that is to increase the subscribers and the suppliers. Keith knew when he helped found the Power Hive, that ContactOut was going to be their top tool for scraping contact information for potential subscribers and suppliers.
Keith and his team have seen great success through using ContactOut, even internally. As mentioned before, they are already on track to meeting next year’s goal of new members. Keith had mentioned a particular time recently where ContactOut was proven to be truly valuable to him and the Power Hive family. He was looking to fill a project management role on his team within a very specific niche. Through an advanced search, Keith retrieved 42 contacts. That led to 7 interviews, 2 offers, and 1 placement. Keith had mapped out his prospects on ContactOut within hours. The speed and accuracy of ContactOut’s Chrome extension led to a placement within 2 weeks.
