Yes, you heard right – there are free research tools and they can be amazing to supplement the wealth screening subscriptions you already have.
We’ve all been there. You get some great information from your screening tools but there are bits and pieces that are missing or hints into a mysterious past.
The Wayback Machine extension on Chrome can fill in those blanks. You can see past iterations of websites to either gather information or confirm your suspicions.
Take a look at how Donorly’s researchers suggest using the tool (and a quick step-by-step for installing the extension).
How will you use the Wayback Machine? I like to look at old annual reports and lists of board of directors to find previous directorships of the prospects I’m researching. It’s important to not only include current positions but also past to ensure you are showing the entire spectrum of a prospect’s interests and activities.
