Although lead lists can shorten the sales process, to achieve maximum ROI you'll need to know what you're buying and how lists can be incorporated into your company's routines.
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. Unlike other vendors on the market, 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 translators equipment and systems businesses to use a provider with an exceptionally large business database. Why? Because more contacts translates into better leads and more conversions.
- Updated contacts. Contact updating is lead list 101. A high volume of contacts is worthless unless they are regularly updated for accuracy.
- Delivery speed. When your business needs a new supply of translators equipment and systems business leads, you can't afford to suffer delays from your vendor. Good list providers deliver tailored lead lists in hours or less.
Avoid Misuse of Lead Lists
When you purchase a list of translators equipment and systems business leads from a third-party, you aren't necessarily entitled to carte blanche, infinite use of the leads it contains.
Mailing and lead lists are generally restricted to the terms of the contract, so it's important to know exactly what you're paying for before you agree to a purchase. In some cases, vendors may permit usage upgrades, but you'll need to contact your provider before you move outside the contract parameters.
Cost Benefits of Lead Lists
Think lead lists are cost-prohibitive? Think again! Although there is an added expense associated with lead lists, the overhead cost of maintaining an in-house lead generation program exceeds the amount of cash you'll spend to acquire a reliable list. If you factor in the cost of maintaining constantly updated translators equipment and systems business contacts, it's not difficult to see why lead lists are more efficient than self-generated leads.
How Do Lead List Brokers Get Their Data?
Great question. The really good lead vendors are continually conducting extensive research to get fresh, accurate business lead information. Notably, they scan Yellow Pages directories, SEC databases, and other data sources. In contrast, on the other side of the spectrum, be aware that some firms sell old, stale leads that are pretty worthless
