How to Develop Transit & Transportation Advertising Business Leads
Transit & Transportation Advertising Business leads come from many different sources. Local business directories, online searches and trade associations are good starting points. More recently, many businesses have also used social media sites like Facebook to generate leads for their products. But regardless of the delivery platform, the key to lead development is networking. As your list of transit and transportation advertising business contacts grows, so does your list of likely customers.
Leads vs. Prospects
If you've hired a quality lead list vendor, your provider will deliver an updated lead list that has been sorted according to company size, years in business, zip code and other criteria. But your work isn't done yet. Unless you are using the lists for mass marketing campaigns (e.g. direct mail), you'll need to qualify the contacts through telemarketing calls or sales calls. Since the transit and transportation advertising business contacts have been culled from a larger group of updated prospects, you'll have better higher conversion rates -- but you'll still need to expend energy to achieve maximum return on your investment.
