To succeed in selling to antique rug dealerships, you have to target your sales and marketing energies toward specific segments of the marketplace -- and that means you have to be thoughtful in assembling your prospect lists.
What to Do With the Lead Lists You've Purchased
Outsourced lead generation is only the first step toward higher sales revenues. Of equal importance is how your sales force uses lead lists to increase conversions. To maximize ROI, you'll need to expand the use of your antique rug dealership lists across multiple business units including sales, marketing and possibly even IT (online strategies). You'll need to research your vendor's use restrictions before you make any firm plans, but whenever possible, apply the leads you purchase to multiple marketing channels.
Mailing List Return on Investment
It's a common misperception that lead lists are cost-prohibitive for most sales programs. Although there is an added expense associated with lead lists, the overhead cost of maintaining an in-house lead generation program exceeds the amount of cash you'll spend to acquire a reliable list. If you factor in the cost of maintaining constantly updated antique rug dealership contacts, it's not difficult to see why lead lists are a cost-effective alternative.
Choosing a Lead List Broker
Personal references are an important consideration in selecting a antique rug dealership lead list provider. When business professionals approach Gaebler for a referral, we usually direct them toward Experian, an established vendor with the resources and experience to generate targeted lists of antique rug dealership leads.
Even so, you'll want to interview several potential vendors to find the one that is most capable of meeting your needs and budget requirements. The best provider will be the one that can provide references of satisfied customers that share your priorities and business traits.
