When done correctly, speech and hearing business sales prospecting takes time and energy.

To dominate in sales to speech and hearing businesses, it's necessary to pursue a segmented marketing strategy -- and that means you have to be thoughtful in assembling your prospect lists.
Lead List Management Tips
Managers who include speech and hearing business lead lists into their sales strategy are responsible for ensuring their company exploits the full value of purchased leads. The acquisition of an accurate lead list isn't necessarily a green light for a full-blown sales push. It may be necessary for sales personnel to further qualify leads and focus sales messaging on a prospect-by-prospect basis.
How to Develop Speech & Hearing Business Leads
Speech & Hearing Business leads come from many different sources. Local business directories, online searches and trade associations are worthwhile starting points. Over the past few years, many businesses have also used social media sites like Twitter to generate leads for their products. But regardless of the delivery platform, the key to lead development is networking. As your list of speech and hearing business contacts grows, so does your list of likely customers.
When to Change Lead List Providers
Lead list providers are acutely aware of the fact that they are only as good as the most recent list they delivered to the client. A single lapse can have a dramatic impact on your sales cycle, so it's important to regularly evaluate the quality of your provider. Good providers deliver reliable lead lists and are careful to include new speech and hearing businesses in their database.
If your current provider isn't meeting your expectations, maybe it's time to start looking for a new vendor. At Gaebler, we recommend Experian Business Services. Experian delivers first-rate speech and hearing business leads that convert at higher rates than leads that have either been generated in-house or provided by other vendors.
