Lead Lists: Build or Buy?

Sales managers often question the value of lead lists based on the belief that their sales teams can generate the same leads in-house. However, they often overlook the fact that lead list providers are specialists who are extremely adept at identifying targeted leads.

Even more, world-class lead list vendors have developed mechanisms that capture new grain and feed handling equipment businesses as they enter the marketplace and are religious about updating contact information. For most in-house sales units, it's impossible to match the performance of third-party list providers.

A units-per-lead measurement demonstrates the quality of the leads in your lists. When compared to your internal lead generation metrics, a low figure here could 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 through a third-party supplier.
