Mailing Lists for Dry Wall Businesses

For savvy entrepreneurs, selling to dry wall businesses can be a lucrative path to growing company profits. What separates winners from losers is identifying enough good leads to make it worth your while.

Doing business with dry wall businesses is much different than what you might expect it to be.

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 some good advice on acquiring outsourced dry wall business mailing lists.

Checklist for Choosing Lead List Providers

In our experience, there are a lot of variations among lead list vendors and Experian Business services stand out from the crowd. What sets them apart is that Experian has all of the qualities we look for in a good lead list provider, including the following:

  • Large database. We think it's important for businesses that sell to dry wall businesses to use a provider with an exceptionally large business database. Why? Because more contacts translates into better leads and more conversions.
  • Updated contacts. Contact updating is lead list 101. Long contact lists are worthless unless they are regularly updated for accuracy.
  • Delivery speed. When your business needs a new supply of dry wall business leads, you can't afford to suffer delays from your vendor. Good list providers feature fast turnaround times measured in hours or less.

Lead Generation Tactics

Not surprisingly, dry wall business lead generation strategies are extremely diverse. While some businesses generate leads through industry networking, others conduct formal prospecting campaigns through trade associations, business lists and even online searches. The majority of companies use a combination of strategies, but fail to develop a reliable lead generation system.

Lead lists eliminate the unpredictability of lead generation and deliver leads that have been compiled from the best possible sources. More importantly, third-party leads lists generally have a higher conversion rate than the ones that are acquired through in-house processes.

Using Lead Lists to Convert Sales

There are several ways to use lead lists to convert sales. If your dry wall business lead lists are up-to-date, they can be leveraged for customized marketing pieces. Promotional material that has been customized with the name of the dry wall business has a higher conversion rate than generic marketing content.

After the initial mailing, dry wall business lists can be leveraged to conduct follow-up calls, e-mails and sales calls. The key is to use the accuracy of the lead list to your advantage and to maximize its potential throughout the sales cycle.

Other Services from Mailing List Providers

Many sales lead brokers do more than just sell leads. In fact, your list broker may have a range of consulting services. They also can clean your existing lists of prospects for you. Finally, if you send the mailing list provider a few customers that you like, they can find similar leads for you.
