Despite the fact that lead lists can streamline the sales cycle, to achieve maximum ROI it's important to buy quality lists from proven list providers.

Which Lead List Vendor Should I Use?

Personal references are an important consideration in selecting a photofinishing retail business lead list provider. When our business partners ask us for a referral, we usually direct them toward Experian, a proven vendor with the track record and experience to generate targeted lists of photofinishing retail business leads.

Even so, you'll want to interview several potential vendors to discuss issues such as the size of their database, filtering capabilities and of course, price. The best provider will be the one that can provide references of satisfied customers that share your priorities and business traits.

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. After you have qualified the photofinishing retail businesses on the list, each contact is an on-ramp a larger network of photofinishing retail business contacts that can be tapped into through telemarketing, sales calls and online social networking.

By using lead lists as a catalyst for business networking, you extend the list's ROI far beyond the initial campaign. Although you will likely purchase additional lists going forward, you'll improve your industry presence when you conduct follow up networking with the leads you acquire right now.

Although there is an added expense associated with lead lists, the price of generating leads using internal resources is more than the amount of cash you'll spend to acquire a reliable list.
