Outreach Prospect Profile Overview:
Users with a CRM solution can best relate a Prospect as a Lead or Contact -- Prospects are the individuals who have expressed interest in the Org’s product or services.
Outreach provides Users the ability to customize a Prospect’s profile within the Outreach Platform with information pertinent to engaging with the Prospect such as the Prospect’s timezone, LinkedIn profile, and more.
Accessing a Prospect’s Profile:
- Access the Outreach Platform.
- Click the Prospect’s icon (double silhouette) in the navigation sidebar.
- Sort, filter, and click the applicable Prospect.
Note: A Prospect’s profile can be accessed within the Outreach Platform where the Prospect is listed. For example, Users can access a Prospect through the Accounts List View by clicking the Prospects decorated link and clicking the applicable Prospect.
A Note About How Prospects are Added to Outreach:
Outreach provides Users the ability to add Prospects to Outreach by directly importing from a CRM such as Salesforce or Microsoft Dynamics, as well as CSV files.
Additionally, depending on how the Org’s settings have been configured, Users can opt to have Outreach automatically create a Prospect when sending an email to an email address not associated with a Prospect in Outreach.
For more information regarding importing and creating Prospects, refer to the applicable content in the Additional Resources section of this article.
