Mailing Lists for Iron Foundries Businesses

We've all heard stories about some businesses where there's no shortage of leads. But that's not true if you market to iron foundries businesses.

Be aware that iron foundries businesses are diverse operations with unique needs and circumstances.

When it comes to iron foundries business sales, direct marketing can be a highly effective entry point -- and that means lead generation is a core business activity for firms like yours.

Lead List Dynamics

The most valuable lead lists focus on iron foundries businesses that are likely to convert to satisfied customers. 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.

Direct Mail Marketing Tips

With direct mail, you only get one chance to capture a prospect's attention. When a iron foundries business decisionmaker reads your piece, he has to be knocked over by what he sees.

Most businesses invest heavily in the creation of each direct mail piece. But the effort and resources you put into your direct mail marketing channel will be wasted unless your pieces are seen by the right people. As a result, lead generation isn't just about adding iron foundries business names to a list -- it's about producing a high quality list of iron foundries business sales prospects.

Lead List Vendor Recommendations

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. Many online vendors are big on promises and short on execution, so it's important to verify each provider's claims and references.

We've known many lead list providers throughout the years, but we have been consistently impressed with Experian. One of the reasons we like Experian is because they have a database of more than 14 million U.S. businesses. Companies that sell to iron foundries businesses appreciate Experian's ability to deliver updated leads that have been filtered to meet precise geographic and demographic criteria.
