American City Business Journals Launches BizLeads

A New Revolutionary Cloud Based B2B Data Prospecting Service

CHARLOTTE. N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--American City Business Journals has introduced BizLeads, a B2B data product that helps sales and marketing professionals identify and reach potential customers for as little as $66 per month.


BizLeads, which leverages data from approximately 19 million companies, contains business lead-and-contact information on more than 25 million professionals, executives and business owners. BizLeads is unique in its locally-focused market approach that allows subscribers to purchase only the specific market data they need. In addition, BizLeads’ cloud-based service features a powerful, easy-to-use map-based user interface for search and on-demand data and information that flows to subscribers based on their filters and specific preferences.

The launch of BizLeads follows ACBJ’s acquisition last year of a majority stake of cloud-based business-valuation platform BizEquity.

“BizLeads combines the best of BizEquity’s technology and expertise with the business journals’ data gathering capabilities,” said ACBJ CEO Whitney Shaw. “Combining 30 plus years of research and reporting on local businesses across the country with a rich and powerful data information service like BizLeads will enable sales and business professionals to find and connect with the targets they want to reach in ways not available before.”

ACBJ is the country’s largest owner of local business journals with more than 400,000 paid subscribers, 14 million monthly visitors to its web sites and 220,000 annual event attendees. The company is dedicated to helping local business leaders grow their business, advance their career and simplify their professional lives in 43 cities in the US.

“BizLeads is a revolutionary new online service to prospect for businesses and their owners and executives,” said Nash Subotic, CEO of Westpac Wealth Partners, an early BizLeads customer. “I run a large financial services firm and we have used other prospecting solutions. We love how simple yet elegant the user interface is and how powerful the data is. We think it's the best solution on the market for B2B prospecting."
