To begin with, most digital camera shops practice careful purchasing routines. Clear messaging is a necessity in this industry, but even that may not be enough unless you have invested in a high quality lead list.
Always Start with a Big Lead Database
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 digital camera shops. 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.
Lead List Metrics
There are several metrics that can be used to evaluate the effectiveness of digital camera shop lead lists.
For starters, conversion rate (number of sales/number of leads) is essential in measuring lead list success and failure rates. But you may also want to think about integrating a few other metrics into your assessment routine.
A units-per-lead measurement demonstrates the quality of the leads in your lists. When compared to your internal lead generation metrics, a dismal units-per-lead number indicate a provider that isn't performing adequate qualification or lead filtering. Similarly, individual metrics for your sales staff indicate how well each of your team members is using the leads they receive from your vendor.
The Fast Path to Sales Growth
Sales units typically struggle to differentiate between speed and efficiency, especially when it comes to generating high conversion digital camera shop leads. Although time plays a role in sales benchmarks, a haphazard lead generation process can produce sub-standard leads. But based on cost considerations, you can't afford to tie up too much of team's time in lead generation. That's where lead lists earn their keep because a good lead list provider can deliver both speed and efficiency to your lead generation routines.
Typical Lead List Database Fields
In dealing with the biggest lead list companies, you will typically get Company Name, Contact Name, Address and Phone Number. What you actually get depends on which list broker you buy from. For some vendors, for example, you can opt to receive fields like Subsidiary Status, Credit Rating Scores and Type of Business (SIC/NAICS).
