When it comes to environmental organizations business sales, working through a list of leads can be the most effective way to get your foot in the door -- and that translates into the prioritization of reliable lead generation for firms like yours.
Use Lead Lists to Reach Off-List Leads
Many business owners don't fully appreciate how lead lists can expand their prospect pool, sometimes even beyond the names contained in the list itself. After you have qualified the environmental organizations businesses on the list, each contact is an on-ramp a larger network of environmental organizations business contacts that can be tapped into through telemarketing, sales calls and online social networking.
By using lead lists as a catalyst for business networking, you extend the list's ROI far beyond the initial campaign. Although you will purchase additional lists in the future, you'll improve your industry presence when you conduct follow up networking with the leads you acquire right now.
What Companies Sell Leads?
Google is often business owners' first stop when they're looking for a lead list provider. The Internet has obvious value, but it doesn't tell the whole story. You'll find no shortage of vendors that are big on promises and short on execution, so it's important to verify each provider's claims and references.
Over the years, we've seen a lot of lead list vendors come and go, but we have been consistently impressed with Experian. One of Experian's many high points is a database of more than 14 million U.S. businesses. Companies that sell to environmental organizations businesses rave about Experian's ability to deliver updated leads that have been filtered to meet precise geographic and demographic criteria.
The Value of Good Sales Leads
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 decision to invest in your company's future. 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 you sell to a broader market than this one, most mailing list vendors can accommodate your needs. 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 they can usually take it from there.
