What Every Business Needs to Know About Using Business Data
The advantages to direct marketing are widely known by marketing professionals throughout most industries. However, marketing campaigns that rely on cold calling are not particularly effective. A business needs a way to screen businesses by a variety of elements such as the number of employees, type of business (Standard Industrial Code), estimated gross sales, business square footage, etc.
Having access to business data can save you time by targeting only certain business types. Having data is not enough. If you use the wrong communication channels, poor message strategy, inappropriate sales approaches, and/or target the wrong businesses, you may generate very few leads, or only generate poor leads. Since nobody wants to waste budget resources engaging with customers and prospects not interested in their product, service, or brand, understanding whom your customers are, and what they want, is Step One.
Business data from the Chamber, or list brokers, is just the first step in building your own customer/prospect database. You should consider creating your own list of prospects and track responses to gain in-depth insights into customers wants and needs. If you need a database to manage and collect customer and prospect information, you might consider off-the-shelf packages like Salesforce, Nimble, Dex Media or ACT.
