But by reducing the need for internal lead generation, your business can gain momentum in the area of actual selling. When applied intelligently, lead lists are powerful resources for B2B charcoal business selling.

Lead Brokerage Industry Overview

There is no shortage of vendors interested in selling charcoal business lead lists to your business. Buyer beware! The majority of lead list vendors in today's market sell stale lists that have been sold to hundreds of other clients and haven't been updated for months, if not years. In the world of charcoal business lead lists, you get what you pay for. Reputable vendors charge fair rates, but they're still affordable and they provide a product that is vastly superior to the ones you get from discount vendors. At Gaebler, we refer our readers and clients to Experian for their business lead lists. In our experience, Experian is head and shoulders above most other providers. They have a broad range of charcoal business contacts that can be sorted to meet your precise sales criteria.

Lead List ROI

Think lead lists are cost-prohibitive? Think again! Although there is an added expense associated with lead lists, the indirect costs of in-house lead list generation are far more than the amount of cash you'll spend to acquire a reliable list. If you factor in the cost of maintaining constantly updated charcoal business contacts, it's not difficult to see why lead lists are an attractive alternative to internal processes.

Finding Sales Prospects

Updated and accurate lead lists increase the odds of positive charcoal business responses. But before you can close deals, your sales team needs to activate the power of your list through prospecting.

Like it or not, there is no way around the hard work of picking up the phone and using the lead list to qualify prospects. Although not every charcoal business on the list will greet your efforts with enthusiasm, the payoff for an investment in a targeted lead list will be noticeably higher response percentages.
