Sellers often fail to recognize that it's often more advantageous to use third-party lead and mailing lists than it is to perform lead generation exclusively in-house. Here's what you need to know about third-party concrete aggregates business direct mail lists.
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. If you factor in the cost of maintaining constantly updated concrete aggregates business contacts, it's not difficult to see why lead lists are an attractive alternative to internal processes.
Criteria for Lead List Vendor Selection
In our experience, identifying the best possible lead list vendor is critical 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 good lead list provider, including the following:
- Large database. We think it's important for businesses that sell to concrete aggregates businesses to rely on leads that have been selected from a large, national database. Why? Because more contacts equates to a higher volume of truly qualified leads.
- Updated contacts. Contact updating is a fundamental part of sound sales strategy. Long contact lists are worthless unless they are regularly updated for accuracy.
- Delivery speed. When your business needs a new supply of concrete aggregates business leads, you can't afford to put your operation on hold until the vendor gets around to filling your order. Good list providers respond to client requests in hours or less.
Multichannel Marketing Tips
Successful B2B sellers to concrete aggregates businesses typically leverage a multichannel sales and marketing strategy. For young companies, that makes the integration of lead lists into multiple channels a priority. Direct mail is a popular marketing medium in the industry. But more and more companies are achieving results by combining direct mail and telemarketing with online campaigns that drive traffic to the company's website. In some cases, it may be appropriate to incorporate a lead list into a strategy that automatically directs content into multiple channels.
