A simple Google search for “lead generation companies” will bring up 2 650 000 000 results. 

With so many lead generation services out there, it can be tough to choose the right one for your business.

Outreach can do wonders to bring in new clients, but in some cases, you might be paying b2b lead generation companies quite a bit of money, and all you get are a few lousy leads that don’t convert. 

Here are some of the best lead generation companies to look out for this year, and a breakdown of what they specialize in, client reviews, and pricing. 

1. Salesbread – Specializing in Linkedin Lead Generation and Cold Email Outreach

A bit of background

Salesbread has over a decade of experience when it comes to Linkedin and cold email outreach with regards to b2b companies

We guarantee 1 qualified lead per day and within the past 24 months, we generated close to 7000 qualified sales leads for our clients. 

Salesbread is able to generate these quality leads because of our data-based list-building services, ultra-personalized messages, and in-depth market research

For us, outreach is more than just sending a generalized template, but rather we try to engage your ideal target audience into having conversations with us. 

Once we have a foot in the door, we ask for a meeting. 

Most of the time, just because we showed interest by using personalized messages, prospects are happy to say yes to a booked sales call. 

This is our exact Linkedin Lead Generation Strategy

Step 1: Find the right prospects

The number one most important step in the lead generation process is finding the right prospects

After all, your sales navigator subscription is worthless if you cannot start conversations with people that:

  1. Need what you sell
  2. Can afford it
  3. Can make the purchasing decision

 Here’s our prospecting process:

We start by first analyzing your current customers and what would be your ideal target market

This way, we can use data from your CRM to learn exactly who is converting to a deal so that we know the best prospect to go after.

We will begin by studying the industry you are targeting, the size of the industry, its funding, the job title of the decision maker, as well as services offered and the age of the business. 

(Typically, any solid marketing team can provide this information. But don’t worry. Our LinkedIn lead generation agency is used to working directly with founders and startups that do not have access to an in-house marketing team. We’ll help you uncover this data during our initial kick-off strategy calls.)

It is also vital to view hiring trends and which groups the founders belong to on their Linkedin profile to find the prospects that are most likely to convert.

If it’s relevant, our sales team will also take note of their advertising history and their department size to further optimize our prospecting lists.

For example, if you are a podcast creation service for lawyers, Salesbread will find you:

Lawyers, who have featured on a podcast before BUT who do not have their own show yet.

Why? 

This would then be a list of lawyers who like and believe in podcasts. We will do list building to make sure that we reach quality leads

Here is one case study that we accomplished this with.

Clark Lagemann, the co-founder of MedPro Wellness, said that we had: “generated over 100 new leads for his company with a lead generation campaign within two months”. 

Not only were these genuine leads, but the conversion rates were strong. 

Truth is, personalization means you write a tailor-made message so that your recipient KNOWS you wrote it for them and for nobody else.

Step 2: Connect with the right leads through personalized invites on Linkedin.

Once we have found the perfect target audience, we will connect with them through personalized invites. 

You can use some automation for sending out invites, but be careful to monitor your acceptance rate to ensure your LinkedIn account stays safe. (Aim for 40+% acceptance rates.)

Note: We only send invites to people in your 2nd-degree network. 

Why?

LinkedIn has found that people that you share a connection with are 4x more likely to accept a meeting invite than prospects in your 3rd-degree network.

Breaking this down: 

We prospect a list of carefully selected professionals that need what you have to sell, based on data.

Then we further narrow that list down to people in your 2nd network. And that’s the group we begin reaching out to with personalized connection requests

But won’t that drastically limit who you reach out to?

No. Here’s why:

Every time you add a new connection in the industry that you want to target, your 2nd-degree network expands exponentially.

This keeps adding fresh prospects that we can invite and engage with every week. Plus, you’ll see a much higher invite acceptance rate because of this strategy.

Step 3: Secure a meeting.

Once we have made contact with your new leads, we will then secure a meeting with them. Once again, we do this by ultra-personalized messaging. 

Our sales team shows an interest in the potential customers by being interested in what they are working on; they will also include enough background so the prospect knows why it’s in their best interest to meet or set an appointment. 

This is how we personalize our messages for each prospect. 

Our personalization team will do a simple Google search on their name and company. 

If you add the word “interview” to the Google search, you can find out if they’ve done any interviews that can be mentioned in the personalization snippet. 

For example, suppose you find a great podcast, article, or interview that the potential client did. In that case, you could send them a personalized message about how much you enjoyed their podcast or article. 

This is an example of what we would say:

“Hey, great interview with Irish business builders. Love hearing your thoughts on what makes online marketing work.”

 Or we could also say something like this:

“Just listened to your interview with an Irish business builder and was impressed with how Wayflyer was born.”

Another treasure trove of information is on a person’s Linkedin profile

They might share their achievements, their hobbies, or you could even explore their activities on their Linkedin account.

This will give a clear idea of the person you are targeting and if they will be a great fit.

It’s also important to remember not to talk about yourself or the company. Make everything about them, your potential customer. This always guarantees a qualified lead
