There are a limited number of library networks businesses in the U.S.. You can't sell to all of them, but lead lists target high value prospects so you can focus your company's energy on sales targets that are primed for conversions.

Measuring Lead List ROI

Multiple methods exist for measuring the effectiveness of library networks business lead lists.

For starters, conversion rate (number of sales/number of leads) is clearly the most important metric in determining the success or failure of a specific lead list. But you may also want to think about integrating a few other metrics into your assessment routine.

A units-per-lead measurement can tell you a lot about the quality of the leads you're receiving from your vendor. 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.

Which Lead List Vendor Should I Use?

When our business partners ask us 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 library networks business leads.
