Although lead lists can shorten the sales process, to achieve maximum ROI it's important to buy quality lists from proven list providers.
What Companies Sell Leads?
An Internet search is typically the first step businesses take when they're looking for a lead list provider. The Internet has obvious value, but it doesn't tell the whole story. Many online vendors are big on promises and short on execution, so it's important to verify each provider's claims and references.
We've known many lead list providers throughout the years, but we have been consistently impressed with Experian. One of the reasons we like Experian is because they have a database of more than 14 million U.S. businesses. Companies that sell to poultry wholesale businesses appreciate Experian's ability to deliver updated leads that have been filtered to meet precise geographic and demographic criteria.
Lead List Metrics
Multiple methods exist for measuring the effectiveness of poultry wholesale business lead lists.
For starters, conversion rate (number of sales/number of leads) is clearly the most important metric in determining the success or failure of a specific lead list. But you may also want to think about integrating a few other metrics into your assessment routine.
A units-per-lead measurement demonstrates the quality of the leads in your lists. When compared to your internal lead generation metrics, a dismal units-per-lead number indicate a provider that isn't performing adequate qualification or lead filtering. Similarly, individual metrics for your sales staff indicate how well each of your team members is using the leads they receive from your vendor.
Why Lead Lists Are Essential for Selling to Poultry Wholesale Businesses
Compared to businesses in other industries, poultry wholesale businesses expect multichannel messaging about the products and services that are important to them. Although businesses in this industry appreciate the ability to quickly locate equipment and supplies when they need them, they also expect B2B companies to engage them in a typical sales cycle.
Lead lists enable selling success because they are highly accurate prospect directories that can be utilized in a variety of seller-initiated activities including direct mail, telemarketing, sales calls and online channels.
