Mailing Lists for Crisis Centers

Sellers generally understand that good prospect lists are worth a small fortune. Here's how to make crisis center contact lists pay off for your business.

Looking for sales leads? You're not alone.

Although lead lists can shorten the sales process, many sales teams forget that it's important to buy quality lists from proven list providers.

Ramping Sales and Profits with B2B Lead Lists

Consumer advertising strategies usually aren't effective when selling to crisis centers. You can spend a small fortune on a visually appealing ad and go virtually unnoticed in the industry. Unlike mass marketing resources, lead lists allow you to target your messaging toward a select group of prospects. When selling to crisis centers, the ability to focus sales and marketing efforts on specific types of leads is essential.

What to Do With the Lead Lists You've Purchased

Outsourced lead generation is only the first step toward higher sales revenues. Of equal importance is how your sales force uses lead lists to increase conversions. To maximize ROI, you'll need to coordinate the use of your crisis center lists across multiple business units including sales, marketing and possibly even IT (online strategies). You'll need to research your vendor's use restrictions before you make any firm plans, but whenever possible, apply the leads you purchase to multiple marketing channels.

How to Recognize High Quality Lead Lists

Not sure what to look for in a great lead list vendor? We recommend: accuracy, updating and speed.

First-tier list providers like Experian Business Services have created large crisis center databases to give their clients the most up-to-date leads in the industry.

When choosing a crisis center list vendor, conversion ability counts. The more accurate and targeted your lead list is, the higher your conversion rate will be. However, you'll also want to consider how long it takes the vendor to fulfill list requests. For many companies, a delay of even a few days can bring sales and marketing processes to a standstill.
