Day 1 – B2B sales leads predictions for 5 companies – 31st December 2018

I posted analysis of one company in a Facebook growth hacks group and on my Linkedin wall. Both had great responses and people messaged me and asked me to post this daily. So I decided to make it a like a blog post and do analysis of 10 companies daily. This will have improvements going forward but its a start. Objective of this analysis is to identify "intent" opportunities or say find out when is the right time to reach out a company based on their recent activity and existing technology usage. If we can optimise our timings while reaching out to prospects half of the job is done. So let's start.
