Choosing a Lead List Broker

Personal references are always helpful in selecting a base metals business lead list provider. When our business partners ask us for a referral, we usually direct them toward Experian, a best-of-breed provider that has the expertise and experience to generate targeted lists of base metals business leads.

Still, you'll want to interview several potential vendors to discuss issues such as the size of their database, filtering capabilities and of course, price. The best provider will be the one that can provide references of satisfied customers that share your priorities and business traits.

Reasons to Buy Lead Lists

Isn't it possible to create your own lead lists without paying an outside provider? Sure -- but in-house lead generation is usually much less efficient than purchasing leads from a third-party specialist.

You'll get higher ROI from proven list providers because they have access to larger and more current databases. From a sales management perspective, you gain speed and accuracy in the sales cycle.

Leads vs. Prospects

A first-rate lead list provider, your provider will deliver a fresh lead list that has been sorted according to company size, years in business, zip code and other criteria. But your work isn't done yet. Unless you are using the lists for mass marketing campaigns (e.g. direct mail), list contacts need to be further qualified by your sales team. Since the base metals business contacts have been generated from a large database of updated prospects, you'll have better higher conversion rates -- but you'll still need to expend energy to achieve maximum return on your investment.

What Else Can Lead Brokers Do For You?

Many sales lead brokers do more than just sell leads. In some cases, your list broker may be able to directly assist you with a direct mail postcard campaign or an email blast campaign. They also can clean your existing lists of prospects for you. Finally, if you send the mailing list provider a few customers that you think are a good fit for your business, they can find similar leads for you.
