Finding qualified leads is often daunting to growth-minded businesses that sell to music and recording industry businesses. Our lead list guidelines can equip your sales force to outperform and outsell industry standards.
Mailing List Vendor Summary
There is no shortage of vendors interested in selling music and recording industry business lead lists to your business. The bad news is that many vendors sell stale lists that have been sold to hundreds of other clients and haven't been updated for months, if not years. In the world of music and recording industry business lead lists, you get what you pay for. Reputable vendors charge fair rates, but they're still affordable and they provide a product that is vastly superior to the ones you get from discount vendors. At Gaebler, we refer our readers and clients to Experian for their business lead lists. In our experience, Experian is stands out from the rest of the field. They have a broad range of music and recording industry business contacts that can be sorted to meet your precise sales criteria.
Lead List Ethics
When you purchase a list of music and recording industry business leads from a third-party, you are usually entitled to limited use of the contacts it contains.
Mailing and lead lists are generally restricted to the terms of the contract, so it's important to know exactly what you're paying for before you agree to a purchase. In some cases, vendors may permit usage upgrades, but you'll need to contact your provider before you engage in sales and marketing activities that are contractually prohibited.
How Much To Pay For Lead Lists
Why do some business leaders spend small fortunes on office furniture and then refuse to buy lead lists?
The decision to purchase a lead list is a decision to invest in your company's future. It's the purchase of an asset that can deliver real financial returns in the form of increased sales revenues.
Still not convinced? Then consider this: every minute your sales unit spends trying to gather or update leads is a minute they aren't spending closing sales. It doesn't take very many hours spent on in-house lead generation to justify an investment in a quality lead list.
Types of Data Available from Lead Database Vendors
In dealing with the biggest lead list companies, you usually receive Company Name, Contact Name, Address and Phone Number. What you actually get depends on which lead vendor you buy from. In some cases, for example, you can get fields like Estimated Annual Sales, Company Website and Year Established.
