Mailing Lists for Commercial and Savings Banks Businesses

If you sell for a living, a good lead list is the key that can get you on the radar of commercial and savings banks businesses.

Looking for new leads? You're not alone.
(article continues below)

Most companies that market commercial and savings banks businesses struggle to meet their self-imposed lead quotas. That's where lead lists can help . . .

Lead Lists: Build or Buy?

Many business owners struggle with the decision to purchase lead lists because (in theory) they can produce the same results using in-house personnel. However, they often overlook the fact that lead list providers are specialists who are highly skilled in identifying targeted leads. So a decent list provider can produce a list of prospective commercial and savings banks businesses at a cost that is much lower than in-house lead generation. Even more, world-class lead list vendors have developed mechanisms that capture new commercial and savings banks businesses as they enter the marketplace and meticulously maintain their contact databases. For the majority of in-house sales units, that kind of accuracy just isn't practical.

Selecting a Commercial & Savings Banks Business Lead List Provider

The key to finding a good commercial and savings banks business lead list is to focus your search on the industry's best providers. Some providers are notorious for selling lists that are stale and inaccurate. Good lead list providers pay attention to the quality of their products. They go out of their way to make sure 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 just getting started, we highly recommend Experian Business Services. Experian has the characteristics we look for in a commercial and savings banks 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 customized to your needs and specifications.

Use Your Lead Lists for Both Marketing and Sales

If you limit the use of commercial and savings banks business lead lists to direct mail and cold calling, you're handicapping the return on your investment. A good lead list can serve as a collaborative resource for sales, marketing and other business divisions. For example, after you have acquired a lead list that has been sorted by geography, your marketing division could test a handful of marketing concepts in each area. If the marketing division's efforts are coordinated with the sales division, you could then evaluate outcomes and adjust your approach to each area rather than launching a generic sales campaign.

Where Do Lead Vendors Get Their Data?

Wondering where lead vendors get their lists? Top sales lead vendors are constantly conducting extensive research to refine and enhance their available inventory of business leads. Notably, they scan Yellow Pages directories, SEC databases, and other data sources. In contrast, on the other side of the spectrum, you should know that there are some companies that sell old, stale leads that are pretty worthless
