Like it or not, there is no way to avoid the hard work of picking up the phone and using the lead list to qualify prospects. Although not every wood and laminates flooring business on the list will greet your efforts with enthusiasm, the payoff for an investment in a targeted lead list will be noticeably higher response percentages.
