Keen to get the views and opinions of as many people as possible on this..
I am fairly far down the road with an idea to offer a service that will profile potential customer data by geography and market and then obtain relevant contact details for the business, including address, telephone number and crucially key contact/executive names and their email addresses.
I believe one of the huge issues around contacting prospective new customers is not knowing who to ask for - asking
"Can I speak to your marketing person or business owner" immediately identifies it as a sales/cold call.
Feedback I am looking for is would a service that gathered all the information and then perhaps even sent an email on your behalf to the business owner help you?
Be great to get feedback from those that either use some kind of service right now or who have an opinion on whether there would be a benefit in receiving X amount of leads per month as per your criteria and pre-emailed with your offer for follow up.
For the avoidance of doubt I am not talking about some kind of email blast or offer to other warriors I mean business owners in your specific geography and selected by size location and business type that you prefer.
Thanks for taking the time and welcome replies or refinements to this.
