CRM data decay is a problem.

30-40% of data becomes outdated each year and having inaccurate data in your CRM can lead to a 10% annual revenue loss.

All the data you need for your B2B prospecting is readily available in LinkedIn but manually entering this into the CRM takes a lot of time and still results in human error.

Connecting your HubSpot CRM to LinkedIn so that the data is automatically updated can save each BDR and SDR more than 3 hours per week and increase revenue by 10%.
