For the sake of speed, the industry's top sellers purchase business mailing lists provided by top lead list suppliers.
Process for Selecting a Lead List Partner
B2B sellers that rely on lead lists are advised to interview several prospects before settling on a provider. At some point in the process, you'll need to decide whether or not the provider is capable of delivering lists of contacts that have been filtered and updated within the past thirty days. This is especially important for fiber barrels and drums businesses given the industry's high turnover rates. If you aren't sure where to begin your search, we recommend starting with Experian. Experian is an established and recognized lead list provider with a documented background in producing high converting leads for the B2B sector.
Reach Out to Your Leads Multiple Times
Businesses that experience the most success in selling to fiber barrels and drums businesses typically leverage a multichannel sales and marketing strategy. For young companies, that makes the integration of lead lists into multiple channels a priority. Direct mail is a popular marketing medium in the industry. But more and more companies are achieving results by combining direct mail and telemarketing with Internet-based marketing campaigns that drive traffic to the company's website. In some cases, it may be appropriate to incorporate a lead list into a strategy that automatically directs content into multiple channels.
Lead List ROI
Think lead lists are cost-prohibitive? Think again! Although there is an added expense associated with lead lists, the overhead cost of maintaining an in-house lead generation program exceeds the amount of cash you'll spend to acquire a reliable list. If you factor in the cost of maintaining constantly updated fiber barrels and drums business contacts, it's not difficult to see why lead lists are a cost-effective alternative.
