If your marketing and sales pipeline requires a constant supply of fresh, b2b contact and company data, choose Ascentrik’s made-to-order databases. Pre-built online databases suffer from stale contact details, as employees change jobs very often. It is not feasible for online business databases to refresh data in real time. But Ascentrik makes sure you don’t have a single bounced email. This is because we work as data partners throughout your campaign.

B2B Data Cleansing, Validation, Enrichment
If your existing business database has incorrect and out-of-date information, our skilled personnel handle the task of validating and updating your databases by researching target companies & verifying contact information.
We manage all the existing data on the client‟s CRM and channelize it to relevant departments. We also conduct company name standardisation on your CRM, where we standardise a group of company names to one unique name to enable the research team to source a variety of contacts from various specialties.
Delegate Sourcing for Events and Conferences
In order to be successful, all b2b conferences and events need to have relevant delegates attending the event, along with speakers and sponsors. The events and conferences industry thrives on freshly sourced business databases that are always refreshed and validated. Besides this, gaining the right market and competitor intelligence, and insights about similar events held by competitors, ensures a successful event with the highest ROI.
We source and identify key contacts. Rather than traditional contact research projects, Ascentrik identifies the entire potential sources and then moves onto contact data research post client approval. We also help you identify sponsorship opportunities based on who’s sponsoring at similar events.

Understanding the B2B Data Sourcing Market
The data brokerage market is highly fragmented. There may be up to 5,000 data providers worldwide, plus nearly 10 million open datasets published by government agencies and non-governmental organisations. Here are the 2 broad types of b2b database providers:
Data Vendors or Data Providers that allow you to download from a large database
With data brokers or software tools millions of data points are stored in a large database. A data broker is a business that aggregates information from a variety of sources; processes it to enrich, cleanse or analyse it; and licences it to other organisations. They are sometimes also called an information broker, syndicated data broker or information product company.
As the market evolves, organisations’ demands become more sophisticated. Short term requirements may be better served by downloading from pre-built databases. Long term data needs require b2b data providers who function more as partners, working as per the client’s evolving needs.

Data Partners or Data Research Providers that outsource data research services with a team of domain experts
Data partners have a very different approach. We do not store databases and resell them to others. Each database is custom built exclusively for each client. The approach is research oriented and begins with primary and secondary research methods. We work in partnership towards the success of the client’s email campaign.
We also manage the existing CRM, keeping it refreshed and updated at all times. Besides this we also have the capability to research the market, the competition and industry trends to provide intelligence that helps in business decision making, and marketing campaigns. This ensures your data is unique from your competitors’ data.
Reasons why Ascentrik is the best b2b Data Provider
Unlike fully-automated databases or data sourcing solutions, our unique data gathering process is human research driven with a layer of data verification that assures complete data accuracy, and 100% campaign ROI.
We provide replacement email addresses for bounced emails, and also provide single and double opt-ins for consent based email marketing. This ensures you contact prospects only if they have opted in to receive emails or phone calls. Read more here.
Compliances in B2B Email Database Building
Compliance laws have come into existence to protect customers against various internet scams and misuse of personal data. They aim to prevent the sending of unsolicited emails.
GDPR deals with the processing of personal data in the EU. Following these regulations not only protects individual privacy, but helps increase engagement and click-through rates on your email marketing campaigns. Since the GDPR was introduced in 2018, sending a marketing email now requires obtaining consent. This consent has to be freely given, specific, informed, unambiguous and provided by some form of clear action, such as ticking a box.
Wherever you choose to get your data list from, you need to make sure you follow GDPR norms, and receive the consent of the contacts on your list. This consent is also referred to as single and double opt-in data, and is provided by top b2b data companies.
This is how we capture consent:
- Opt-ins are captured necessarily at staff level.
- If the staff is not available, opt-in is captured from the Secretary/Personal Assistant, only after the staff is authorised to do so.
- If the staff is not available for the call, details other than opt-ins are verified at the operator level to authenticate the data updated through secondary research.

How much does it cost to buy an email database?
Ascentrik’s Custom Research gives you the most qualified b2b Lead Database
If you are looking to buy a business leads database, you might have considered various data vendors who store databases that can be accessed online through monthly subscriptions. You might have also heard about sourcing your data manually using valuable content, and enticing users to opt in to your marketing messages. But since that is very time and resource intensive, you might end up choosing to purchase your business database. While doing so you need to factor in 3 important criteria; Data Accuracy, Niche Targets and Pricing.
Data that is stored in online lead databases gets stale very quickly as employees change jobs at a very high rate, and many forget to update their details on social platforms. This may happen right in the middle of your marketing campaign, causing emails to bounce, or phone numbers to be invalid, and affects the overall performance of your marketing campaign. Your brand name is also affected since the emails are sent from your company’s domain.
Therefore data accuracy is of prime importance in the success of your campaign, be it an email or cold calling campaign. But since online databases contain millions of contacts, they cannot update them all in real time. They have quarterly or monthly data updates. Some claim to have real time updates and verification of data before sharing it with you, but this happens largely for popular industries and job positions that are commonly accessed by the masses. The niche industries and job positions are not updated very often as that is not feasible considering that millions of contacts cannot be updated daily. Many times you will notice that niche industries are not even available in online lead databases.
This is where you will need a custom database provider who builds made-to-order databases for each individual client project. Custom data researchers like Ascentrik support you all through your marketing campaign. We give you replacement email addresses for every person that has changed their job during your campaign, solving the problem of email bounces.
Moreover we provide you with the all important single and double opt-ins required for consent based marketing. This ensures complete data accuracy, and 100% ROI on your email marketing campaigns, and cold calling campaigns.
Ascentrik is one of the only data partners that has the capability to source b2b contact databases for very niche targets. Niche industries are specialised sectors focusing on a specific product or service. These industries cater to a smaller target audience and have lower competition. Some examples of niche B2B industries include oil and gas, metals and mining, specialised healthcare, etc.
On the other hand, mainstream industries include popular sectors that may have a bigger market, multiple competitors, high growth potential, or cater to a mass market need. Mainstream industries are usually commoditised by many players. Software development, IT, marketing, etc can be classified as examples of mainstream B2B industries.
Since most database solutions need to maintain large databases, the sourcing and verification of data needs to be automated with software. It is not feasible to verify millions of contacts on a daily or even a weekly basis. Therefore only the most popular, mainstream categories are updated regularly, while the industries and markets that are niche or less in demand are not.
Here is where Ascentrik Research outperforms the others. We can source and verify data from niche categories and industries. This data is unique and is hard to find anywhere else. No matter what your industry, job title, job role, or any other data point, we can source data in line with privacy norms and user consent, using our specialised team of data researchers.
In the situation mentioned above, where an employee changes his job and joins another company, while forgetting to update his details on social media, you end up with incorrect information. Many b2b data providers will charge you for this incorrect data anyway. This necessitates you to pay for refresh of these stale data records, adding to your marketing expense.
But working with custom data research companies is valuable in the long run. The cost may be a bit higher compared to the databases sold to multiple users, but eventually you will save on your marketing budget in the long run because you will not be charged for inaccurate data records, and you won’t be paying additionally for data cleansing. Lastly, the single and double opt-in data will be very beneficial to the success of your marketing campaign.
This is why a custom b2b data company like Ascentrik Research gives you the most qualified b2b databases, beyond what the usual data vendors provide.
