If you're waiting for robotic components businesses to magically appear on your doorstep, you're out of luck. Instead, you need to be proactive about identifying high value robotic components businesses.
Lead List Metrics
Multiple methods exist for measuring the effectiveness of robotic components 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 can tell you a lot about the quality of the leads you're receiving from your vendor. 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.
Criteria for Lead List Vendor Selection
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 robotic components businesses to cull their leads from an expansive business database. Why? Because more contacts translates into better leads and more conversions.
- Updated contacts. Contact updating is the name of the game with lead lists. Long contact lists are worthless unless they are regularly updated for accuracy.
- Delivery speed. When your business needs a new supply of robotic components business leads, you can't afford to suffer delays from your vendor. Good list providers deliver tailored lead lists in hours or less.
Lead Generation Tactics
It only takes a quick glance at the marketplace to know that robotic components business lead generation strategies are extremely diverse. While some businesses generate leads through industry networking, others conduct formal prospecting campaigns through trade associations, business lists and even online searches. The majority of companies use a combination of strategies, but struggle to automate the process.
Lead lists eliminate the unpredictability of lead generation and deliver leads that have been compiled from the best possible sources. Beyond that, purchased lead lists generally have a higher conversion rate than the ones that are acquired through in-house processes.
Creative Ways to Get Sales Leads
Finding new customers by buying lead lists from mailing list and lead database brokers is a great start to any lead gen initiative. Still, make sure you think about creative ways to find sales leads.
For example, by joining a trade association, you can often get access to a good directory of prospects. This is a great way to get access to leads that may not be getting many calls from your competitors.
