Foundational marketing strategies can have limited impact when selling to meat processing businesses primarily because businesses convert differently than consumers, which is why lead generation is job one when selling in this market.

Nowadays, meat processing businesses expect vendors to find them. The good news is that lead lists can help streamline access to the industry's most attractive sales prospects.
Beat the Competition with Better Lead Lists
Lead lists are a convenient sales resource. While lead lists undoubtedly make it easier to identify sales leads, that isn't the only advantage they offer. They also create competitive advantages for companies that sell to meat processing businesses. As your competitors waste time fishing for leads in phone books, a good lead list lets your team turn its attention to actual prospects and sales activities.
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 are meticulous about quality and are careful to include new meat processing 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 delivers first-rate meat processing business leads that convert at higher rates than leads that have either been generated in-house or provided by other vendors.
Sales Mailing List Best Practices
Lead lists can (and should) be filtered to target meat processing businesses that are likely to respond to your sales and marketing efforts. Filtered lists can then be used for a range of activities within your organization including prospecting, direct mail and telemarketing. If your marketing mix features Internet-based tactics, your lead lists should contain updated email and site contact data.
