Sales forces without a healthy pipeline of leads are at a competitive disadvantage. To remain competitive, you need to develop a business model that feeds qualified volunteer search and rescue business sales prospects to your sales team.
Using Lead Lists to Sell to Volunteer Search & Rescue Businesses
Compared to businesses in other industries, volunteer search and rescue 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 proactively educate them about product offerings.
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.
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. What sets them apart is that 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 volunteer search and rescue businesses to cull their leads from an expansive business database. Why? Because more contacts equates to a higher volume of truly qualified leads.
- Updated contacts. Contact updating is a fundamental part of sound sales strategy. Long contact lists are worthless unless they are regularly updated for accuracy.
- Delivery speed. When your business needs a new supply of volunteer search and rescue business leads, you can't afford to suffer delays from your vendor. Good list providers feature fast turnaround times measured in hours or less.
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 the manner in which you utilize your lists within your business. To maximize ROI, you'll need to coordinate the use of your volunteer search and rescue 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.
