For the sake of speed, the industry's top sellers rely on business mailing lists provided by top lead vendors.

How to Tell If You Have a Good Lead List

The best lead lists share several characteristics that are essential in selling to used musical instruments businesses. Right out of the gate, you'll want a list that has been generated from a large contact database. For example, Experian Business Services offers B2B lead lists that have been culled from more than 14 million active U.S. businesses. For sellers to used musical instruments businesses, a large database increases the pool of prospects that can then be sorted and filtered for specific criteria including location, business size, years in business, etc. Since lead quality has a significant influence on conversion, you'll also want to focus your efforts on providers that are well established and reputable.

Networking with Lead Lists

Many business owners don't fully appreciate how lead lists can expand their prospect pool, sometimes even beyond the names contained in the list itself. After you have qualified the used musical instruments businesses on the list, each contact represents a doorway to a larger network of used musical instruments business contacts that can be tapped into through telemarketing, sales calls and online social networking.

By working its network of contact, you extend the list's ROI far beyond the initial campaign. Although you will likely purchase additional lists in the future, you'll improve your industry presence when you conduct follow up networking with the leads you acquire right now.

Using Lead Lists to Sell to Used Musical Instruments Businesses

Unlike some other types of businesses, used musical instruments businesses expect multichannel messaging about the products and services that are important to them. Although businesses in this industry appreciate the ability to quickly locate equipment and supplies when they need them, they also expect B2B companies to aggressively pursue their buying dollars.

Lead lists enable selling success because they are targeted compilations of updated leads that can be utilized in a variety of seller-initiated activities including direct mail, telemarketing, sales calls and online channels.

Types of Data Available from Lead Database Vendors

In dealing with the biggest lead list companies, you usually receive Company Name, Contact Name, Address and Phone Number. What you actually get depends on which lead database provider you do business with. For some vendors, for example, you can get fields like Executive Titles, Email Addresses and Number of Employees.
