Using A List Broker To Kickstart Your Business Marketing Many business-to-business companies understand the importance of having a mailing list. With a list of leads in place, any company can increase sales and profits by directly marketing to potential customers. For companies just starting out, one effective way to quickly build a list is to use the services of a list broker.

Why You Need a List and a List Broker

Your business can't grow or expand without a list of prospects interested in your products or services. With a targeted list of companies in the right industries and in the right locations, you have a much better chance of making sales. A good marketing campaign for your list will not only increase sales, but bring in repeat buyers. To get the best lists, you need to work with a reputable list broker. Good list brokers not only have a large list of contacts, but also a list of active and current buyers.

How to Build a List

Although a B2B company can build its own list of prospects, this takes a lot of time. A faster approach utilizes the services of list broker who have tens of thousands or maybe even millions of contacts you can use. With a list broker, you gain access to a list that is customized for your needs. You choose how many names you want, the industries they are in, and their geographical location.

Choosing the Marketing Campaign

Most list brokers have several ways to contact a prospect. There is the physical address, the phone number, fax number, and the email address of company employees. With a variety of contact methods, you have more options in how to market to your leads. You can use telemarketing, an email campaign, a fax blast, or direct mail. It all depends on understanding your target market and the ways they prefer to be contacted.

Analyzing the Results

After any marketing campaign, you need to analyze the result to see what worked and what didn't. By analyzing the data, you can improve the next campaigns. Over time, you learn if you have a better return on investment (ROI) from email campaigns, telemarketing campaigns, or direct mail. You then continue to use the strategies that work, and dump those that produce poor results.

With any marketing campaign, it all starts with a list of business names.
