Sales reps sometimes overlook the fact 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 dental laboratory mailing lists for your organization.
Lead List Databases: Why Size Matters
In the world of B2B lead lists, database size definitely matters.
The idea is to narrow your search to providers that can offer a large database of dental laboratories. Experian Business Services, for example, has a comprehensive database of 14 million U.S. businesses that can be filtered and sorted according to your exact specifications.
The business reality is that the amount of sales you generate will be directly tied to the number of contacts contained in your lead lists. As the size of the provider's database increases, so does your ability to to create a highly targeted pool of prospects.
Why Lead Lists Are Essential for Selling to Dental Laboratories
Compared to businesses in other industries, dental laboratories expect multichannel messaging about the products and services that are important to them. Although businesses in this industry appreciate the ability to quickly locate equipment and supplies when they need them, they also expect B2B companies to aggressively pursue their buying dollars.
Lead lists enable selling success because they are targeted compilations of updated leads that can be utilized in a variety of seller-initiated activities including direct mail, telemarketing, sales calls and online channels.
Avoid Misuse of Lead Lists
When you purchase a list of dental laboratory leads from a third-party, you don't have legal ownership of the leads and contacts it contains.
Mailing and lead lists are generally restricted to the terms of the contract, so it's important to know exactly 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 engage in sales and marketing activities that are contractually prohibited.
Non-Industry-Specific Lead Databases
If you sell to a broader market than this one, most mailing list providers are happy to help you out. You can even target things like Businesses That Own a Building, Businesses Owned by Hispanic Executives, and other niche segments. Define the desired profile to your mailing list vendor and they can usually take it from there.
