Checklist for Choosing Lead List Providers
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 parks and playgrounds businesses to rely on leads that have been selected from a large, national database. Why? Because more contacts translates into better leads and more conversions.
- Updated contacts. Contact updating is lead list 101. A high volume of contacts is worthless unless they are regularly updated for accuracy.
- Delivery speed. When your business needs a new supply of parks and playgrounds business leads, you can't afford to suffer delays from your vendor. Good list providers feature fast turnaround times measured in hours or less.
How Third-Party Lead Lists Help Companies to Grow
There are a lot of ways lead lists can be used to grow your business. The fact that you're purchasing solid lead lists is a growth strategy because it improves the quantity and quality of your company's prospect pool. However, another growth strategy is to use lead lists as a tool for expanding your business to a new market.
By targeting the list toward specific zip codes or geographic areas, you can instantly begin marketing your products in an unfamiliar environment. Sometimes you can even test market products in new territories with lists of parks and playgrounds businesses that have been sorted for each target market.
The Value of Good Sales Leads
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 wise investment. It's the purchase of an asset that can substantially boost sales revenues.
Still not convinced? Then consider this: the time your team spends pouring through business directories is time they aren't spending meeting with clients. It doesn't take very many hours spent on in-house lead generation to justify an investment in a quality lead list.
