Doing business with camps information and referral services is much different than selling to other B2B sales prospects.

Even though lead lists create a more efficient sales process, to achieve maximum ROI high quality lead lists need to be carefully integrated into your sales process.
Leads vs. Prospects
A first-rate lead list provider, your provider will deliver an updated lead list that has been sorted according to company size, years in business, zip code and other criteria. But your work isn't done yet. Unless you are using the lists for mass marketing campaigns (e.g. direct mail), your sales force will still need to conduct lead qualification. Since the camps information and referral service contacts have been culled from a larger group of updated prospects, you'll have better higher conversion rates -- but you'll still need to expend energy to achieve maximum return on your investment.
Lead List ROI
Think lead lists are cost-prohibitive? Think again! 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. When you consider how much time it would take your sales team to create a large database of constantly updated camps information and referral service contacts, it's not difficult to see why lead lists are an attractive alternative to internal processes.
Sorting & Filtering Leads
Top tier lead list providers give their clients the ability to sort and filter leads. The goal isn't to accumulate as many camps information and referral service leads as possible. Instead, you'll want to focus your energy on lead lists containing the names and contact information of likely buyers. For example, Experian, one of the industry's most respected providers, makes it easy for their clients to sort and filter leads by geography as well as a variety of demographic criteria including company size, years in business, number of employees, etc.
