How to Use ReachOut

Getting Started

To begin using ReachOut, click on the ReachOut logo in your toolbar.


If this is the first time you have opened the ReachOut application, you will be presented with a video tutorial. To bypass this and log in, click “Login” at the top of the page or click the “Skip” button.


Enter your credentials when prompted. If you do not already have a ReachOut account, click “Sign up” to create one.


You are now ready to begin using ReachOut.

Finding Contact Data

Go to LinkedIn and navigate to any profile. Then click the ZoomInfo logo in your toolbar.


Reachout will then display the person’s profile picture with masked contact information.


Click “Get Contact Info” to reveal a phone number and email address. Please note, if we do not have a direct phone number for your contact, we will display (HQ), indicating the number belongs to the company headquarters.

You may now choose to email the contact information to yourself as an electronic business card, or, you can export the contact directly to Salesforce as a new lead. Each action will deduct one credit from your account.


Exporting to Salesforce

To export to Salesforce, click on the “Salesforce” button located under the words “Export to:.” If you have not already connected your Salesforce account to ZoomInfo, you will be prompted to enter your Salesforce credentials and security token. You must then go back to the ReachOut tool, click “Get Contact Info” again and then click “Salesforce” to complete the export.

If you have already connected your Salesforce account, the export will launch upon the click of the “Salesforce” button and you will receive a message letting you know the action was successful.

Note: if you are not prompted to log in to Salesforce, but you would like to access the login screen, delete the cookies in your browser.

Salesforce Tips:Leads exported from ReachOut will follow the lead routing established within your Salesforce environment. You may want to consider adjusting your rules for leads with the source ZoomInfo depending on your established workflows. You should set up deduping within Salesforce to prevent duplicate leads from entering your system. This ensures the best user experience for ReachOut.

Converting Leads to Contacts:Contact information exported from ReachOut to Salesforce will enter your database as a new lead. To learn how to convert that lead to a contact, please refer to the Salesforce help center articleon this topic.

Exporting as an Email Contact Card
