Measuring Lead List ROI

Multiple methods exist for measuring the effectiveness of gemologists business lead lists.

For starters, conversion rate (number of sales/number of leads) is clearly the most important metric in determining the success or failure of a specific lead list. But you may also want to think about integrating a few other metrics into your assessment routine.

A units-per-lead measurement reveals the quality of your vendor's leads and database contents. When compared to your internal lead generation metrics, a dismal units-per-lead number indicate a provider that isn't performing adequate qualification or lead filtering. Along the same lines, individual metrics for your sales staff indicate how well each of your team members is using the leads they receive from your vendor.

Why Purchase Mailing Lists?

Isn't it possible to create your own lead lists without paying an outside provider? Yes, but obtaining lead lists from an outside specialist is much more cost efficient than generating lead list in-house.

You'll get higher ROI from proven list providers because they have massive industry databases that are updated regularly for accuracy. The bottom line is that lead lists improve the speed and effectiveness of the selling process.

Where to Find Lead Lists

Google is often business owners' first stop when they're looking for a lead list provider. There's nothing wrong with an Internet search, but Google doesn't tell the whole story. Many online vendors are big on promises and short on execution, so it's important to verify each provider's claims and references.

We've known many lead list providers throughout the years, but we have been consistently impressed with Experian. One of the reasons we like Experian is because they have a database of more than 14 million U.S. businesses. Companies that sell to gemologists businesses rave about Experian's ability to deliver updated leads that have been filtered to meet precise geographic and demographic criteria.

Other Services from Mailing List Providers

You can tap your lead brokers for other things, assuming they are good firms with deep resources. In some cases, your list broker may have a range of consulting services. Have a conversation with them and ask about their full capabilities. Finally, if you send the mailing list provider a few prospects that you think are a good fit for your business, they can find similar leads for you.
