Selling to Businesses

Selling to Rent to Own Businesses

Without a doubt, rent to own businesses are attractive sales prospects in today's marketplace. To dominate in the rent to own business industry, you'll need to pay attention to the basics.

Getting your foot in the door with rent to own businesses can require complex sales and marketing strategies.

If your sales strategies aren't up to snuff, your entire revenue stream could be in jeopardy. Here are a few simple strategies you can count on to deliver results.

Marketing Channels for Rent to Own Businesses

Even though companies market their products in many different ways, there is one truth that applies to all rent to own business marketing strategies -- no single marketing channel is capable of capturing the attention you need to meet your sales goals.

Across the industry, multichannel marketing strategies are the norm, and may include direct mail, telemarketing, print ads, email campaigns and other online strategies.

Top sellers routinely purchase lead lists as a way to drive the sales process. High quality lead lists provide a high volume of leads that are up-to-date and targeted to high-converting prospects. In our experience, Experian Business Services has the largest and most accurate database of rent to own businesses on the market.

Sales Team Considerations

Most of the businesses that sell to rent to own businesses take a team sales approach.

Although your team may consist of individual sales reps, each rep has to recognize their role in the team strategy. There is simply no room for mavericks in this industry! Team-based training programs and other initiatives can be beneficial, but the best strategy for encouraging buy-in to a team sales model is for owners and managers to become role models for teamwork.

Hiring Staff

People are your most valuable sales asset. A first-rate sales strategy is ineffective if your sales team is unable to do their jobs effectively.

Most rent to own businesses appreciate the value of sales professionals who are informed and prepared. When a customer has a problem with an order, the sales rep is usually the first person they contact so it's imperative for your team to be trained in service as well as sales routines.
