Tips for Selling to Boring Contractors Businesses

Businesses that sell to boring contractors businesses rely on accurate information about their prospects, their products and their competition.

Successful sales strategies emphasize data collection routines and are adept at using that information as a tool for converting prospects to satisfied customers.

Know the Competition

Companies who sell to boring contractors businesses face a crowded and competitive marketplace.

Although it may not seem like it, there are many other businesses that sell similar product lines. As a result, boring contractors businesses are bombarded with promotional messaging and tend to be very knowledgeable about their buying options.

By researching the competition, you gain the ability to create an effective value proposition. Although there are many ways to research your competitors, conversations with boring contractors businesses themselves may be the best source of information.

How to Find Boring Contractors Business Leads

Leads are the foundation of successful selling. The first step in lead generation is to analyze the local market. From there, you can widen the field to include the yellow pages, Internet searches and trade listings.

The names of boring contractors businesses you obtain through your own efforts need to be qualified through phone calls, emails, and face-to-face conversations.

But the most dependable source of qualified sales leads is often a third-party lead list provider. When it comes to high quality lead lists, we recommend Experian Business Services to our business partners. Experian has a reputation for providing updated and sorted lead lists that can be used for direct mail and other marketing efforts directed toward boring contractors businesses.
