Despite the fact that lead lists can streamline the sales cycle, to achieve maximum ROI high quality lead lists need to be carefully integrated into your sales process.
Pre-Qualifying Sales Leads from Purchased Lead Lists
Managers who integrate magnetic inspection business lead lists into their sales strategy are responsible for ensuring their company exploits the full value of purchased leads. The acquisition of a high quality lead list doesn't mean your team is ready to start pounding the pavement. It may be necessary for sales personnel to further qualify leads and focus sales messaging on a prospect-by-prospect basis.
What Companies Sell Leads?
Google is often business owners' first stop when they're looking for a lead list provider. The Internet has obvious value, but it doesn't tell the whole story. Many online vendors are big on promises and short on execution, so it's important to verify each provider's claims and references.
Over the years, we've seen a lot of lead list vendors come and go, but we have been consistently impressed with Experian. One of Experian's many high points is a database of more than 14 million U.S. businesses. Companies that sell to magnetic inspection businesses rave about Experian's ability to deliver updated leads that have been filtered to meet precise geographic and demographic criteria.
Investment or Expense?
There's a misperception that lead lists are an optional expense for B2B sales divisions. In reality, a good lead list is an investment in your company's future. The magnetic inspection business contacts you acquire through a reputable lead list provider are potential long-term clients. Even more, lead lists can deliver an ROI that meets or even exceeds the ROI you receive from other high-producing assets in your company.
