ContactOut as an Apollo Alternative — a strong 
Apollo competitor 🥊

Ding ding! It’s time to place your bets for the 
championship match.

At first glance, it looks like ContactOut and Apollo are in the same weight division — we both provide personal emails and our G2 ratings are pretty neck and neck — but here’s the catch, we’ve been training harder and gaining incomparable mass density.

Not only are our prices more affordable, our data coverage is far better than that of Apollo’s with 150M personal emails and 200M work emails — and with 99% accuracy too. Plus, we’re dedicated to making the remote recruitment process easier and faster with a simple and straightforward data intelligence tool, while Apollo is a complex product.
