When it comes to tugboats and towing business sales, direct mail and telemarketing can be a highly effective entry point -- and that means lead generation is a core business activity for companies that sell in this industry.
Choosing a Lead List Broker
Personal references are an important consideration in selecting a tugboats and towing business lead list provider. When businesses look to 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 tugboats and towing business 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.
What to Do With the Lead Lists You've Purchased
Outsourced lead generation is only the first step toward higher sales revenues. Of equal importance is how your sales force uses lead lists to increase conversions. To maximize ROI, you'll need to coordinate the use of your tugboats and towing business lists across multiple business units including sales, marketing and possibly even IT (online strategies). You'll need to research your vendor's use restrictions before you make any firm plans, but whenever possible, apply the leads you purchase to multiple marketing channels.
Lead Lists: Build or Buy?
Business owners often avoid lead lists because they feel they can produce the same results using in-house resources. However, they often overlook the fact that lead list providers are specialists who are extremely adept at identifying targeted leads. So a decent list provider can produce a list of prospective tugboats and towing businesses more efficiently than in-house lead generation. Additionally, the best list providers have developed mechanisms that capture new tugboats and towing businesses as they enter the marketplace and regularly update the contacts that are in their database. For many in-house sales units, it's impossible to match the performance of third-party list providers.
