In today's marketplace, lawn and garden chemicals retail businesses expect vendors to find them. The good news is that a modest investment in lead databases can enable the process required to identify high value leads throughout the industry.
When to Change Lead List Providers
Reputable lead list providers understand the importance of accurate lists. A single lapse can mean disaster for a B2B enterprise, so it's important to regularly evaluate the quality of your provider. Good providers deliver reliable lead lists and are careful to include new lawn and garden chemicals retail businesses in their database.
If your current provider isn't meeting your expectations, maybe it's time to start looking for a new vendor. At Gaebler, we recommend Experian Business Services. Experian has proven itself to be a supplier of consistently high quality lawn and garden chemicals retail business leads that convert at higher rates than leads that have either been generated in-house or provided by other vendors.
Leads vs. Prospects
If you've done your homework, your provider will deliver an updated lead list that has been sorted according to company size, years in business, zip code and other criteria. But your work isn't done yet. Unless you are using the lists for mass marketing campaigns (e.g. direct mail), you'll need to qualify the contacts through telemarketing calls or sales calls. Since the lawn and garden chemicals retail business contacts have been generated from a large database of updated prospects, you can expect to benefit from higher conversion rates -- but you'll still need to expend energy to achieve maximum return on your investment.
Lead Lists: Build or Buy?
Business owners often avoid lead lists because they feel they can produce the same results using in-house resources. However, they often overlook the fact that lead list providers are specialists who are highly skilled in identifying targeted leads. So a decent list provider can produce a list of prospective lawn and garden chemicals retail businesses at a cost that is much lower than in-house lead generation. Not to mention that first-tier lead list companies have developed mechanisms that capture new lawn and garden chemicals retail businesses as they enter the marketplace and meticulously maintain their contact databases. For the majority of in-house sales units, it's impossible to match the performance of third-party list providers.
