In-House Leads vs. Purchased Lead Lists
Many business owners struggle with the decision to purchase lead lists because (in theory) they can produce the same results using in-house personnel. However, they often overlook the fact that lead list providers are specialists who are highly skilled in identifying targeted leads. The top lead list companies can produce a list of prospective trophy shops at a cost that is much lower than in-house lead generation. Additionally, the best list providers have developed mechanisms that capture new trophy shops as they enter the marketplace and meticulously maintain their contact databases. For the majority of in-house sales units, it's impossible to match the performance of third-party list providers.
Which Lead List Vendor Should I Use?
Personal references are a prerequisite in selecting a trophy shop lead list provider. When business professionals approach Gaebler for a referral, we usually direct them toward Experian, a best-of-breed provider that has the expertise and experience to generate targeted lists of trophy shop leads.
Even so, you'll want to interview several potential vendors to find the one that is most capable of meeting your needs and budget requirements. The best provider will be the one that can provide references of satisfied customers that share your priorities and business traits.
Leads vs. Prospects
A first-rate lead list provider, 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), list contacts need to be further qualified by your sales team. Since the trophy shop contacts have been culled from a larger group of updated prospects, you can expect to benefit from higher conversion rates -- but you'll still need to expend energy to achieve maximum return on your investment.
