FINANCE MARKETPLACE - SECTION 4



Leads-how and where to get them

Leads-how and where to get them

You will get your leads from a marvelous website called www.manta.com.  It is free to use and will enable you to save hour after hour of research looking for leads.  You can search for retail credit card retail merchants by Location (large or small cities and towns ANYWHERE IN THE u.s.) or business Category.   You can also filter searches by Revenues (gross sales), number of employees and whether the business is a single location or a branch.

All listings have company name and phone number. Many have the owner's name, employee count, years in business etc. and other valuable information

Manta.com enables you to spend 95% of your time calling prospects instead of wasting time digging up business to call.

Before we begin the tour there are certain facts that you should know about leads basic procedures that we recommend that you follow.

1.  You are free to call anywhere in the United States.  We believe that most of your competitors will rush to the big cities to prospect.  You are free to do this.  The volume of prospects is there but the competition is very strong.  An example of giant metro areas are New York City, Chicago, Atlanta, Los Angeles, etc.                                                            

     We recommend that you also test calling smaller cities and towns such as Wilmington, Delaware, Harrisburg Pennsylvania, Cambridge Massachusetts or Des Moines Iowa...... or even smaller towns. There are plenty of storefronts to call on and the competition will not be as high.  Then you can work those areas which have the highest closing rate for you.

2. The three major Manta.com categories that you should work are:

        Restaurants and bars  (881,000 U.S. business)

        Shopping and stores (2,124,000 U.S. businesses)

        General automotive repair shops (188,000 U.S. businesses-NO new or used auto dealers or gas stations)

These 3 major categories of retail businesses total approximately 3.2 million U.S. companies.

What a huge market....... You may prefer to begin in your home state but you are free to call anywhere in the U.S.

 

Now we can begin the tour. Although it is not necessary, we suggest printing this page out and using it as a guide while you familiarize yourself with manta .com

 

        We begin our tour by going to Manta.com (figure 1)

manta.com ...... and this is just the beginning.

Figure 10

 

Now you are looking at a list of 33 jewelry stores in Cambridge MA (figure 11)

Also note the left hand arrow at "company revenue." The area to the left of most

page enables you to filter out categories by Revenues, number of employees and

single or branch location.  These filters are very useful when you are working with large cities.

   Now lets click on the first listing .........  Daniel Spirer Jewelers

 

 

Figure 11

 

 

Just look at all the information (highlighted or indicated by arrows) in figure 12.  You really know something about the merchant before you make a call.  You have his screen opened when you make the call.

 

I could go on and on showing you around  manta.com but by now you should have the idea.  It is a huge time saver as a lead source.
