In our experience, identifying the best possible lead list vendor is critical and Experian Business services stand out from the crowd. What sets them apart is that Experian has all of the qualities we look for in a good lead list provider, including the following:

Reach Out to Your Leads Multiple Times
Successful B2B sellers to land development and planning engineering firms typically leverage a multichannel sales and marketing strategy. So it's easy to see how the use of lead lists in more than one channel can be a core business function in this industry. 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 Lists as a Competitive Advantage
Too many companies restrict their view of lead lists to convenience. Despite the importance of convenience, that isn't the only advantage they offer. They also create competitive advantages for companies that sell to land development and planning engineering firms. As your competitors struggle to compile and maintain their contact databases, a good lead list lets your team turn its attention to actual prospects and sales activities.
