To dominate in sales to lecture and seminar services businesses, it's necessary to pursue a segmented marketing strategy -- and lead targeting is one of the areas in which lead lists excel.

Finding the Best Leads Within a Lead List

If you've done your homework, your provider will deliver a current 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), list contacts need to be further qualified by your sales team. Since the lecture and seminar services business contacts have been culled from a larger group of updated prospects, you'll have better higher conversion rates -- but you'll still need to expend energy to achieve maximum return on your investment.

Invest in Lead Lists and Watch Your Business Grow

There's a misperception that lead lists are an optional expense for B2B sales divisions. In fact, a good lead list is an investment in your company's future. The lecture and seminar services business contacts you acquire through a reputable lead list provider are potential long-term clients. More importantly, outsourced lead generation can deliver an ROI that meets or even exceeds the ROI you receive from other high-producing assets in your company.

Choosing a Lead List Broker

Personal references are always helpful in selecting a lecture and seminar services business lead list provider. When businesses look to 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 lecture and seminar services business leads.

As a sales professional, you'll want to interview several potential vendors to find the one that is most capable of meeting your needs and budget requirements. The best provider will be the one that can provide references of satisfied customers that share your priorities and business traits.

Creative Ways to Get Sales Leads

Seeking out new prospects by using lead lists from mailing list and lead database brokers is a great start to any lead gen initiative. In addition to that, try to brainstorm on other ways to improve lead generation.

For example, try calling up a peer company that sells to the same market as you do but is not a direct competitor. Ask them if they are interested in swapping leads. This is a great way to get access to leads that may not be getting many calls from your competitors.
