When it comes to elastic goods retailer sales, direct mail and telemarketing can be the first step in the sales cycle -- and that means lead generation is a core business activity for firms like yours.

Lead List Advice

In elastic goods retailer sales, lead quality is just as important as lead volumes. Although the elastic goods retailer lists you provide your sales team need to contain convertible contacts, your team may require a large volume of leads to hit sales targets. As much as possible, verify each lead's contact information and move quickly to identify decision makers before investing time in elastic goods retailer contacts who have little influence over their employer's purchasing decisions.

Selecting a Elastic Goods Retailer Lead List Provider

The key to finding a good elastic goods retailer lead list is to focus your search on the industry's best providers. Some providers charge big bucks for leads that are stale and inaccurate. Good lead list providers pay attention to the quality of their products. They are invested in ensuring that their lists are up-to-date and they supply their clients with leads that have been targeted to meet precise sales criteria.

There are several good lead list providers on the market. If you're just getting started, we highly recommend Experian Business Services. Experian has the characteristics we look for in a elastic goods retailer lead list vendor. Their database of more than 14 million U.S. companies is updated monthly and can be filtered by geographic, demographic and other criteria to create lead lists that are tailored to your needs and specifications.

Using Lead Lists to Sell to Elastic Goods Retailers

Unlike some other types of businesses, elastic goods retailers 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 proactively educate them about product offerings.

Lead lists enable selling success because they are highly accurate prospect directories that can be utilized in a variety of seller-initiated activities including direct mail, telemarketing, sales calls and online channels.
