“It’s not what you know: it’s who you know”. The old adage might not be the last word when it comes to business; you really should know what you’re doing after all. But in the modern world, a good contact list is worth its weight in gold. After all, if you don’t get your message across to potential customers then you’re sunk before you start.

A contact list is one of the most cost-effective ways to keep your clients informed about any offers and to sell them your services. Of course you can build your own, but it could take years, so you can take a short cut for the whole process with the help of UK Business Data.

What are the benefits of buying B2B data?

Most small and medium enterprises simply do not have the time to collate contact information for all their prospective customers – it’s more than a full-time job. Even if they could somehow find all the right names and addresses, there would be simply no way they could maintain their lists and keep them legally compliant. Most simply have to turn to B2B data providers. If they don’t, they should.

UK Business Data takes all the stress out of list creation and management. We maintain a database of more than 3 million B2B data records comprising names, direct email addresses for the decision makers and telephone numbers. We even hold data on the companies themselves, including the number of employees and the annual turnover, which helps you target and tailor your proposals and offers. The data can be organised and presented in a way that suits you, from company size, sector, specific job titles or anywhere in between.

With a B2B data provider like UK Business Data, you can get access to millions of names and contact details of the people who make the buying decisions in businesses. That means you can spend your time where it matters: working on the sales pitch itself.

Can you maintain your own list?

It might seem smart to buy a list and maintain it yourself, but that’s a massive undertaking. The figures suggest that the B2B data goes out of date, or decays, at a rate of approximately 3% per month. Checking individual records to find that 3%, identifying the replacement and adding it to the system just isn’t viable. UK Business Data makes 160,000 updates a month so you don’t have to, which makes contact list maintenance an absolute bargain.
