Company

Business description: Jigsaw is an online business contact marketplace where marketers, recruiters, and sales people can buy, sell and trade business contact information. The Jigsaw marketplace offers members access to an online database of fresh and accurate corporate contact information and increases efficiency by shortening the time required to find valuable business contacts. A Web-based subscription service, Jigsaw works on a Pay or Play model. Members are given the option to pay $25 per month to join the service, or play, which requires members to add 25 new contacts every month to maintain their subscription. Jigsaw points are the currency of the marketplace. Members earn points by entering new contacts, updating existing contacts, and/or referring members to Jigsaw. Earned Jigsaw points can be used to buy desired contact data or sold to other members who need them to buy their own contacts. The continuous data contributions made by the Jigsaw community provide collaborative oversight to ensure the accuracy and growth of the Jigsaw marketplace.
