Opticians database list for direct marketing

More Than Words’ opticians database is part of our extensive UK business database. It provides businesses with valuable personal information for decision-makers in this sector.

How many opticians are there in the UK?

About 19,700 opticians work in the UK and revenue is forecast to grow 16.6% by 2021-22 following a decline during covid restrictions. 

Because of an ageing population and growing health consciousness in the UK this should make the market more prosperous in the coming years.

By getting in front of opticians in the UK at this crucial time you could significantly increase sales and leads for your business.

More Than Words’ database of dispensing opticians comprises:

  • 3,581 opticians,
  • 2,900 decision maker names,
  • 2,980 telephone numbers, and

Marketing to opticians

By using our list of opticians, your company can reach out to business decision-makers with authority and budgets and offer your products and services. Direct marketing is a very effective way for businesses to introduce themselves to new customers.

In direct marketing, companies send marketing messages to their target audience through a variety of channels. Businesses who have a good understanding of their target audience can tailor their offers, products, and services to their specific needs.

This is a better strategy than advertising and hoping the right people see it.

Email marketing to opticians

The low cost of email marketing campaigns makes it an effective way for brands to reach prospective customers. You can upload your B2B email database and send out tailored messages and offers using email marketing tools .

Email marketing platforms offer templates and tools to simplify the process. You can send out large numbers of emails at once, and there is analytics software that helps you measure your campaigns’ effectiveness.

Telemarketing to opticians

Businesses can generate more leads and sales by combining telemarketing with a list of targeted, relevant opticians in the UK. With telemarketing campaigns, you get instant feedback on your products and services, and can accurately measure and analyse responses.

Our B2B telemarketing data informs your sales team how to interact with prospects to make sales more confident. A marketing call offers a two-way dialogue between businesses and customers that allows customers to ask questions about products and services.

Do you want us to market to your opticians database?
