ContactOut as a Lusha Alternative — a strong
Lusha competitor ✨

Mate — this one’s a no-brainer. Although Lusha claims to be “much better,” ContactOut’s G2 ratings speak for themselves. Across the board, in every way, we are, in their words, “much better.” And not only are we wiping the floor with our stats and G2 ratings, Lusha doesn’t have any proprietary data or engagement tools.

If you’re a recruiter, ContactOut is the obvious choice.

Riddle me this — with the average tenure of a tech nerd being 1.5 – 2 years, what’s the point in having work emails if it’s going to be useless in the next year or so?

And if that’s not enough to convince you, we’re more affordable with a lower per credit cost.
