To expedite sales cycles, first-tier B2B sales teams know that it's important to buy lead lists provided by reputable third-party lead vendors.
Lead List Ethics
When you purchase a list of collectibles business leads from a third-party, you are usually entitled to limited use of the contacts it contains.
Mailing and lead lists are generally restricted to the terms of the contract, so you'll need to exercise diligence in understanding what you're paying for before you agree to a purchase. In some cases, vendors may permit usage upgrades, but you'll need to contact your provider before you move outside the contract parameters.
Selecting a Collectibles Business Lead List Provider
The key to getting a good collectibles business lead list is to focus your search on top-tier providers. Some providers have a reputation for peddling leads that are stale and inaccurate. Good lead list providers pay attention to the quality of their products. They are invested in ensuring that their lists are up-to-date and they supply their clients with leads that have been targeted to meet precise sales criteria.
There are several good lead list providers on the market. If you're not sure where to begin your search, we highly recommend Experian Business Services. Experian has the characteristics we look for in a collectibles business lead list vendor. Their database of more than 14 million U.S. companies is updated monthly and can be filtered by geographic, demographic and other criteria to create lead lists that are tailored to your needs and specifications.
Invest in Lead Lists and Watch Your Business Grow
There's a misperception that lead lists are an optional expense for B2B sales divisions. In fact, a good lead list is an investment in your company's future. The collectibles business contacts you acquire through a reputable lead list provider are potential long-term clients. More importantly, lead lists can deliver an ROI that meets or even exceeds the ROI you receive from other high-producing assets in your company.
