When thoroughly executed, drug and alcohol detection and testing business sales prospecting takes time and energy.
(article continues below)
These days, drug and alcohol detection and testing businesses count on you to locate them. The good news is that good lead lists can help streamline a way to find the most convertible leads in the industry.
Lead Lists: Build or Buy?
Business owners often avoid lead lists because they feel they can produce the same results using in-house resources. But what they fail to consider is that lead list providers are specialists who are highly skilled in identifying targeted leads. So a decent list provider can produce a list of prospective drug and alcohol detection and testing businesses more efficiently than in-house lead generation. Even more, world-class lead list vendors have developed mechanisms that capture new drug and alcohol detection and testing businesses as they enter the marketplace and are religious about updating contact information. For most in-house sales units, it's impossible to match the performance of third-party list providers.
Use Your Lead Lists for Both Marketing and Sales
If you limit the use of drug and alcohol detection and testing business lead lists to direct mail and cold calling, you're limited your lead lists' effectiveness. A quality 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 differentiated geographically, 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.
