Generally speaking, who you know can be more important than what you know when selling to chemical milling businesses -- and the process of developing great relationships starts with solid sales leads.
(article continues below)
There are a limited number of chemical milling businesses you can sell to. Even though you probably won't sell to all of them, good business mailing lists target high value prospects so you can concentrate on prospects that are most likely to convert.
Finding Sales Prospects
First-rate lead lists increase the odds of positive chemical milling business responses. But before you can close deals, your list will need to form the basis for a prospecting campaign.
Like it or not, there is no way to avoid the hard work of picking up the phone and using the lead list to qualify prospects. Although not every chemical milling business on the list will welcome your sales pitch, the payoff for an investment in a targeted lead list will be noticeably higher conversion rates.
How Lead Lists Accelerate Sales
Speed and cost are critical considerations when it comes to generating high conversion chemical milling business leads. Although time plays a role in sales benchmarks, a haphazard lead generation process can produce sub-standard leads. But based on cost considerations, you can't afford to tie up too much of team's time in lead generation. That's where lead lists start to make sense because a good lead list provider can deliver both speed and efficiency to your lead generation routines.
Criteria for Lead List Vendor Selection
In our experience, there are a lot of variations among lead list vendors and Experian Business services stand out from the crowd. What sets them apart is that Experian has all of the qualities we look for in a great lead list provider, including the following:
- Large database. We think it's important for businesses that sell to chemical milling businesses to cull their leads from an expansive business database. Why? Because more contacts equates to a higher volume of truly qualified leads.
- Updated contacts. Contact updating is the name of the game with lead lists. Long contact lists are worthless unless they are regularly updated for accuracy.
- Delivery speed. When your business needs a new supply of chemical milling business leads, you can't afford to suffer delays from your vendor. Good list providers feature fast turnaround times measured in hours or less.
Types of Data Available from Lead Database Vendors
When buying business leads, you usually receive Company Name, Contact Name, Address and Phone Number. What you actually get depends on which lead database provider you buy from. For some vendors, for example, you can get fields like Subsidiary Status, Credit Rating Scores and Type of Business (SIC/NAICS).
