To begin with, most microfilming and imaging service, equipment, and supplies businesses are extremely discriminating in their purchasing decisions. Clear messaging is essential, but that alone will fall short unless you have invested in a high quality lead list.

Why Use Third-Party Lead Databases?

Is there an expense associated with obtaining lead lists from a proven third-party provider? Yes, but obtaining lead lists from an outside specialist is much more cost efficient than generating lead list in-house.

Your company will receive better returns from proven list providers because they have massive industry databases that are updated regularly for accuracy. Time after time, lead lists result in more efficient - and more productive - sales cycles.

In our experience, there are a lot of variations among lead list vendors and Experian Business services stand out from the crowd. What sets them apart is that Experian has all of the qualities we look for in a good lead list provider, including the following:

  • Large database. We think it's important for businesses that sell to microfilming and imaging service, equipment, and supplies businesses to rely on leads that have been selected from a large, national database. Why? Because more contacts equates to a higher volume of truly qualified leads.
  • Updated contacts. Contact updating is lead list 101. Long contact lists are worthless unless they are regularly updated for accuracy.
  • Delivery speed. When your business needs a fresh injection of microfilming and imaging service, equipment, and supplies business leads, you can't afford to put your operation on hold until the vendor gets around to filling your order. Good list providers feature fast turnaround times measured in hours or less.

Networking with Lead Lists

Many business owners don't fully appreciate how lead lists can expand their prospect pool, sometimes even beyond the names contained in the list itself. Assuming that you have adequately sorted and qualified the microfilming and imaging service, equipment, and supplies businesses on the list, each contact is an on-ramp a larger network of microfilming and imaging service, equipment, and supplies business contacts that can be tapped into through telemarketing, sales calls and online social networking.
