Don't be intimidated by the speed of the marketplace. Although speed is important, sales fundamentals and logical strategies will make the biggest difference in the success or failure of your selling efforts.

Strategy and ROI

The best sales programs incorporate customer return on investment concerns into their sales strategies. This is especially important when selling to burger restaurants because in this industry, tight sales and marketing budgets are the norm, and every dollar your customer invests has to lead to a financial payoff in their sales revenues and profits.

How to Find Burger Restaurant Leads

Leads form the basis for winning sales strategies. The first step in lead generation is to analyze the local market. From there, you can broaden your net to include the yellow pages, Internet searches and trade listings.

The names of burger restaurants you obtain through your own efforts need to be qualified through phone calls, emails, and face-to-face conversations.

But the most dependable source of qualified sales leads is often a third-party lead list provider. For consistently high quality lead lists, we recommend Experian Business Services to our business partners. Experian has a reputation for providing accurate and filtered lead lists that can be used for direct mail and other marketing efforts directed toward burger restaurants.

Know the Competition

Companies who sell to burger restaurants face no small amount of competitive pressure.

Although it may not seem like it, there are many other businesses selling products that are similar to yours. Subsequently, burger restaurants are bombarded with promotional messaging and tend to be very knowledgeable about their buying options.

By researching the competition, you gain the ability to differentiate your products and incorporate your unique product characteristics into your sales strategy. Although there are many ways to research your competitors, discussions with burger restaurants themselves may be the best source of information.
