How can you run an audit of a prospect?

  • Click on “Maps” under the “ Leads" section.
  • On the Maps page, you will have to enter the “Business Name” and “CID”.
  • CID is the Customer Identification Number which is a unique identification number assigned to a specific business listed on Google Maps.
  • You can find the CID using chrome extensions such as ‘PlePer’, ‘GatherUp’ and ‘Company Information in Google’ and many other free chrome extensions 
    available. (You can simply Google “how to find CID” and see various resources.)
