Generating Leads

There are many ways to generate B2B sales leads. Customer referrals, industry contacts and other strategies can be found throughout the industry.

However, the most effective sellers know that while a small handful of qualified leads may get you started, you will ultimately need an ongoing source of leads to drive your sales cycle. Lead lists deliver a constant supply of wholesale and manufacturers hardware business contacts that can be sorted according to precise sellings criteria.

Lead List Dynamics

Lead lists can (and should) be filtered to target wholesale and manufacturers hardware businesses that are likely to convert to satisfied customers. Filtered lists can then be used for a range of activities within your organization including prospecting, direct mail and telemarketing. Given the prevalence of online marketing strategies, you may want to include email and web addresses in the lead lists your company purchases.

Where to Find Lead Lists

Google is often business owners' first stop when they're looking for a lead list provider. The Internet has obvious value, but it doesn't tell the whole story. The Internet is full of providers that 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 things Experian has working for it is a database of more than 14 million U.S. businesses. Companies that sell to wholesale and manufacturers hardware businesses rave about Experian's ability to deliver updated leads that have been filtered to meet precise geographic and demographic criteria.
