Direct Marketing Strategies

Direct marketing has many advantages for selling to raised floors businesses. The benefit of direct marketing is that it provides a cost-effective resource for reaching qualified prospects with targeted messaging. From a selling perspective, direct marketing establishes a platform for relationships with raised floors businesses that can benefit from your products or services.

The tricky part about direct marketing is lead generation. Since finding leads is time-consuming and difficult, we recommend using lead lists supplied by established third-party vendors. Over the years we've found that Experian is one of the best in the business with a reputation for supplying consistently reliable lists of raised floors businesses that produce high conversion rates.

Internet Strategies

With raised floors businesses now turning to the Internet for equipment and supplies, it's becoming more important for B2B sellers to develop online sales strategies.

A user-friendly website is the centerpiece of 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.

Benefits of Networking

Networking expands your reach within the industry. In addition to raising your company's profile, it increases your credibility with raised floors businesses.

But more importantly, a strategy that emphasizes networking dramatically boosts leads and referrals. Sometimes the leads you generate through solid networking will be leads that are completely off your competition's radar.
