Mailing Lists for Flowers, Florists and Flower Shops Businesses

If you're planning on doing direct marketing to flower shops, industry-specific mailing lists might be a smart investment that gives legs to your sales strategy.

In the B2B arena, sales strategies are frequently adjusted and modified. Just when you think you've found the perfect strategy, the market shifts, forcing you back to the drawing board.

But by reducing the need for internal lead generation, your business can gain momentum in the area of actual selling. For most sales teams, lead lists are powerful resources for B2B flower shop selling.

Establishing a Relationship with a Lead List Vendor

These days, relationships are a primary factor in your company's success. Your relationship with your lead list provider is no different than any other business relationship. By nurturing a relationship with a proven vendor, you gain the peace of mind that comes with knowing that your lists include highly accurate flower shop contacts.

Based on our experience, it's hard to go wrong with Experian. Experian has a proven reputation for delivering high converting leads across a range of industries. Even more, their flower shop leads can be filtered to accommodate your specific geographic and demographic (size of company, number of employees, years in business, etc.) sales goals.

Avoid Misuse of Lead Lists

When you purchase a list of flower shop leads from a third-party, you don't have legal ownership of the leads and contacts it contains.

Mailing and lead lists are generally restricted to the terms of the contract, so you'll need to exercise diligence in understanding what you're paying for before you agree to a purchase. In some cases, vendors may permit usage upgrades, but you'll need to contact your provider before you move outside the contract parameters.

Using Lead Lists to Sell to Flower Shops

Compared to businesses in other industries, flower shops 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.
