Selling to Antique Paintings and Prints Dealerships

It's clear that antique paintings and prints dealerships are important sales prospects for B2B operations that are prepared for a competitive marketplace.

Quality products, a good strategy and a lot of hard work are requirements for companies who sell to antique paintings and prints dealerships. Although there are market challenges, new companies can gain traction by applying a handful of proven sales principles.

Effective Marketing Strategies

Successful sales strategies begin with marketing, and the marketing strategies for antique paintings and prints dealerships are as diverse as they come.

Yet in this industry, marketing effectiveness is inherently dependent on its ability to target key decision makers. From traditional marketing to cutting-edge Internet strategies, any initiative that fails to reach decision makers is a waste of time and resources.

Since your sales revenues hang in the balance, you can't afford to rely on stale or inaccurate sales leads. Third-party lead lists may be the best resource for making sure your team is equipped with the most up-to-date information possible. If you are new to the lead list market, you may want to consider Experian -- a third-party lead list vendor with a reputation for providing regularly updated and sorted antique paintings and prints dealership leads.

Internet Strategies

With antique paintings and prints dealerships going online in record numbers, it's becoming more important for B2B sellers to develop online sales strategies.

A user-friendly website is the home base for all of your other online sales and marketing activities. However, it may also be worthwhile to integrate email advertising, SEO, social networking and other techniques into your sales and marketing mix.

Cost Analysis of Your Selling Tactics

Every part of your sales strategy should be targeted for cost analysis. Business owners sometimes ignore cost considerations and instead, choose to invest in sales strategies that aren't capable of delivering the highest possible ROI.

For example, even though it might seem logical to increase the size of your sales force to expand your base of antique paintings and prints dealership customers, the additional labor overhead may make hiring cost prohibitive -- or at least unattractive compared to other less costly strategies.
