Mailing Lists for Sand Businesses

Good leads are a prerequisite to succeeding in sales. Here's how to make sand business lead lists pay off for your business.

A sales plan that doesn't involve purchasing sales leads is dangerous and foolhardy if you market to sand businesses.
(article continues below)

In this market, new sellers are often disappointed to learn that. Sometimes, intelligent work processes outperform effort -- and when it comes to working smart, it's tough to beat an exceptional sand business lead list.

In-House Leads vs. Purchased Lead Lists

Business owners often avoid lead lists because they feel they can produce the same results using in-house resources. In fact, lead list providers are specialists who are highly skilled in identifying targeted leads. Subsequently, a good lead list provider can produce a list of prospective sand businesses at a cost that is much lower than in-house lead generation. Additionally, the best list providers have developed mechanisms that capture new sand businesses as they enter the marketplace and meticulously maintain their contact databases. For most in-house sales units, it's just not possible to keep pace with the professionals.

Networking with Lead Lists

Many business owners underestimate the ability of a lead list to increase their sales prospect base, sometimes even beyond the names contained in the list itself. After you have qualified the sand businesses on the list, each contact represents a doorway to a larger network of sand 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 in the future, you'll raise your brand profile when you conduct follow up networking with the leads you acquire right now.

Making the Most of Your Lead List Vendor's Capabilities

These days, relationships are a primary factor in your company's success. Your relationship with your lead list provider is no different than any other business relationship. By developing a relationship with your list provider, you gain the peace of mind that comes with knowing that your lists include highly accurate sand business contacts.

Based on our experience, it's hard to go wrong with Experian. Experian has a proven reputation for delivering high converting leads across a range of industries. Even more, their sand business leads can be manipulated to target your specific geographic and demographic (size of company, number of employees, years in business, etc.) sales goals.

Where Do Lead Vendors Get Their Data?

Wondering where lead vendors get their lists? Top list providers are continually combing a variety of sources to refine and enhance their available inventory of business leads. Among other things, they scan utility company databases, and other data sources. On the other hand, be aware that some firms sell old, stale leads that haven't been updated in ages.
