OpenSoon combines the latest in machine analysis & human analytics
to process pre-opening SMB data at massive scale, then convert
that data into coherent, actionable sales intelligence.
THOUSANDS OF SOURCES ARE
The SMB landscape is vast, and staying current requires monitoring on a massive scale.
The platform relentlessly monitors thousands of sources, continually searching for signals of upcoming SMB openings.
RAW DATA IS AGGREGATED
FROM MULTIPLE SOURCES
The data available for pre-opening SMB’s is typically scattered across several sources, in various formats.
When OpenSoon discovers a signal for an upcoming opening, the platform searches multiple other sources, and brings together all of the available data for that prospect.
RAW DATA IS CONVERTED INTO
A SINGLE, COHERENT LISTING
FOR EACH PROSPECT
As the data from different sources flows into OpenSoon, the platform converts the raw discovery data into actionable sales intelligence.
For each new SMB discovered, the platform generates a single, coherent listing, containing all of the available data.
ALL CONTACT DATA IS VALIDATED
Once OpenSoon has generated a listing for a prospect, the platform connects to several API’s to validate all of the available contact info: email, phone, address.
Any invalid data is immediately removed, and the status of each prospecting channel is shown to the user. Learn more about Contact Validation here.
EACH LISTING IS SCORED
All listings are assigned a score of 1-5 based on how much information is available for each listing.
For instance a listing that includes business name, description, address, opening month, phone, email, and decision maker, would receive a higher score than a listing with only business name, description, opening year & phone. Learn more about Listing Score here.
USERS SIGN IN TO VIEW
OR EXPORT THE LISTINGS
OpenSoon is a web-based platform, users can sign in from any web-enabled device.
Users are notified every week when new listings have been generated, users then login to view or export the listings in CSV format.
“Over 30,000 new employer small businesses open in the US every month. Our ongoing mission is to discover & document every one of them, before they open, as the research of record for new, pre-opening small businesses in the US.”
– Steve Waters, OpenSoon Founder / CEO
OpenSoon is a powerful prospect discovery platform that differs
in several ways from traditional lead generation providers.
WE’RE THE FIRST TO KNOW: 100% PRE-OPENING
OpenSoon is the only platform dedicated to discovering new SMB prospects at their most valuable stage: pre-opening, meaning OpenSoon discovers new prospects well before traditional lead generation providers do.
WE GO DEEPER FOR DECISION MAKERS & CONTACT DATA
As all of the SMB’s OpenSoon discovers are at pre-opening, in some cases a dedicated phone / email hasn’t been established for the business yet. Instead of just stopping there, the platform searches multiple sources for another way to contact the decision maker, usually through another business the decision maker owns.
WE’RE FOCUSED ON INDEPENDENTS & SMALL CHAINS
OpenSoon focuses completely on the hardest to track and most valuable SMB sub-set: independents & small regional chains. The platform does not track franchise locations like Subway, Chipotle, Starbucks etc.
WE PROVIDE TRANSPARENT, BUILT-IN CONTACT VALIDATION
OpenSoon features built-in validation for all emails, phone numbers and addresses the platform discovers. The platform provides several levels of validation status, all of which are visible to the user. (Any invalid contact data is deleted before publication to the platform.)
OpenSoon continuously monitors thousands of
sources & processes hundreds of thousands of data points monthly.
When the platform discovers a signal for a brand new SMB at pre-opening
stage, OpenSoon searches multiple sources and aggregates all
currently available data for that business.
90% OF LISTINGS CONTAIN AN ADDRESS
75% OF LISTINGS CONTAIN A DECISION MAKER
70% OF LISTINGS CONTAIN A PHONE NUMBER
