To dominate in sales to ladder rental businesses, it's necessary to pursue a segmented marketing strategy -- and that means you have to be thoughtful in assembling your prospect lists.
Selecting a Lead List Provider
Personal references are an important consideration in selecting a ladder rental business lead list provider. When business professionals approach Gaebler for a referral, we usually direct them toward Experian, a best-of-breed provider that has the expertise and experience to generate targeted lists of ladder rental business leads.
Even so, you'll want to interview several potential vendors to discuss issues such as the size of their database, filtering capabilities and of course, price. The best provider will be the one that can provide references of satisfied customers that share your priorities and business traits.
Ramping Sales and Profits with B2B Lead Lists
Consumer advertising strategies usually aren't effective when selling to ladder rental businesses. You can spend a small fortune 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 ladder rental businesses, the ability to focus sales and marketing efforts on specific segments of the marketplace is vital.
Lead List Metrics
Multiple methods exist for measuring the effectiveness of ladder rental business lead lists.
For starters, conversion rate (number of sales/number of leads) is the most important measurement of overall lead list effectiveness. But you may also want to think about integrating a few other metrics into your assessment routine.
A units-per-lead measurement demonstrates the quality of the leads in your lists. When compared to your internal lead generation metrics, a dismal units-per-lead number indicate a provider that isn't performing adequate qualification or lead filtering. Along the same lines, individual metrics for your sales staff indicate how well each of your team members is using the leads they receive from your vendor.
