Mailing Lists for Designers Businesses

When selling to designers businesses, lead generation can have a huge impact on selling efforts. So what can you do if your company is unable to find high-value prospects?

But if you could reduce the amount of time you spend on lead generation, your sales team could shift their energy toward actual selling. Deployed correctly, lead lists are powerful resources for B2B designers business selling.

Collaborative Uses for Mailing Lists

If you limit the use of designers business lead lists to direct mail and cold calling, you're handicapping the return on your investment. A well-crafted 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 filtered by area code, 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.

Choosing a Lead List Broker

Personal references are always helpful in selecting a designers business lead list provider. When our business partners ask us for a referral, we usually direct them toward Experian, an established vendor with the resources and experience to generate targeted lists of designers business leads.

Even so, you'll want to interview several potential vendors to discuss issues such as the size of their database, filtering capabilities and of course, price. The best provider will be the one that can provide references of satisfied customers that share your priorities and business traits.

How Much To Pay For Lead Lists

Why do some business leaders spend small fortunes on office furniture and then refuse to buy lead lists?

The decision to purchase a lead list is a wise investment. It's the purchase of an asset that can substantially boost sales revenues.

Still not convinced? Then consider this: time dedicated to lead generation detracts from the amount of time your business can dedicate to converting prospects. It doesn't take very many hours spent on in-house lead generation to justify an investment in a quality lead list.

Other Types of Lead Lists

If your marketing efforts go well beyond a single niche industry, most mailing list businesses 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. The key is to think through who your best prospects are. Explain that profile to your mailing list vendor and the good ones will figure out a solution that meets your needs.
