Looking for sales leads? You're not alone.
(article continues below)
In the current economic environment, used motorcycles and motor scooters businesses expect vendors to find them. Fortunately, lead lists can help streamline a way to find the most convertible leads in the industry.
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 used motorcycles and motor scooters 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.
Lead Lists: Build or Buy?
Sales managers often question the value of lead lists based on the belief that their sales teams can generate the same leads in-house. In fact, lead list providers are specialists who are highly skilled in identifying targeted leads. So a decent list provider can produce a list of prospective used motorcycles and motor scooters businesses at a cost that is much lower than in-house lead generation. Additionally, the best list providers have developed mechanisms that capture new used motorcycles and motor scooters businesses as they enter the marketplace and regularly update the contacts that are in their database. For many in-house sales units, it's just not possible to keep pace with the professionals.
Interviewing Lead List Providers
Companies interested in using lead lists in a B2B sales environment are advised to interview several prospects before settling on a provider. Interviews should focus on whether or not the provider is capable of delivering lists of contacts that have been filtered and updated within the past thirty days. This is especially important for used motorcycles and motor scooters businesses because the industry experiences moderate to high turnover (failure) rates. If you aren't sure where to begin your search, we recommend starting with Experian. Experian is a reputable vendor with a proven track record in producing high converting leads for the B2B sector.
