Mailing Lists for Farmers' Markets

Wish you had a way to find new customers and grow sales? Arming yourself with a great lead database might be the route to selling to more farmers' markets.

The process of locating high quality business leads isn't for the faint of heart. Identifying convertible farmers' market leads requires your full focus and attention.

For starters, most farmers' markets practice careful purchasing routines. Flawless sales cycle execution is a necessity in this industry, but that alone may not be enough unless you have a good database of prospects to call on.

Ramping Sales and Profits with B2B Lead Lists

Consumer-based marketing techniques fall flat when selling to farmers' markets. You can spend a ton of cash on a visually appealing ad and go virtually unnoticed in the industry. In contrast to other marketing resources, lead lists allow you to target your messaging toward a select group of prospects. When selling to farmers' markets, the ability to focus sales and marketing efforts on specific types of leads is essential.

Sales Lead List Procurement

It makes sense to focus lead list generation on farmers' markets that are likely to respond to your sales and marketing efforts. Filtered lists can then be used for a range of activities within your organization including prospecting, direct mail and telemarketing. Given the prevalence of online marketing strategies, you may want to include email and web addresses in the lead lists your company purchases.

Selecting a Lead List Provider

Personal references are always helpful in selecting a farmers' market lead list provider. When our business partners ask us for a referral, we usually direct them toward Experian, an established vendor with the resources and experience to generate targeted lists of farmers' market leads.

Even so, you'll want to interview several potential vendors to find the one that is most capable of meeting your needs and budget requirements. The best provider will be the one that can provide references of satisfied customers that share your priorities and business traits.

Typical Lead List Database Fields

In dealing with the biggest lead list companies, you usually receive Company Name, Contact Name, Address and Phone Number. What you actually get depends on which lead vendor you do business with. In some cases, for example, you can opt to receive fields like Executive Titles, Email Addresses and Number of Employees.
