Successful marketing to transport companies

Our transport companies UK database is useful for businesses across the entire breadth of transport and logistics operations.

Any companies involved in supply chains, from end-to-end operators to those specialising in logistics, bulk handling or shipping, would benefit from a relevant source of contact details for the transport industry.

You can choose a more specialised database if you only require connections in a specific area, such as our bus & coach operators list for those in the tourism industry, or the courier and UK delivery companies list for those in financial services.

One of the main benefits of using a curated database is that you can spend more time on user segmentation.

Basic user segmentation will allow you to create more personalised communications based on something you know about the company – for example, on the number of employees.

Thus, if you are a company providing employee perks, for example, you could sell spaces at large events to big companies and smaller gift-based ideas to SMEs.

More complex segmentation takes this idea even further, so you analyse your contact list across multiple data points for much more detailed user segments.

This allows you to combine your contacts into different groups.

You may create a group where your contacts are logistics managers for small businesses with a decreasing turnover, for example.

Doing this allows your messages to be far more focused, and raises the chances of contacts responding favourably.

The most advanced form of segmentation involves predictive analytics, using information known about a contact and their past behaviour to predict what they will do next.

This method requires some relationship with a contact, but thanks to the database being available to you for 12 months, you can do this with ease.

The three main advantages of using our databases

1. Offer personalised solutions

Cold contacting has a better chance of success if the message is personalised.

Our databases have multiple fields per entry, providing numerous details about the business and contact so that you can segment your audience and create more targeted messages.

One standard email marketing message can be adapted to create a solution that feels specific to the needs of the individual simply by segmenting your list and sending a slightly different message to each group.

2. Identify high-value contacts

Our managed email marketing service provides full analytics for each of your transmissions, enabling you to identify the more-interested and most-engaged recipients.

We suggest focusing on these contacts first when sending follow up emails or using telemarketing, as these will be the most likely to convert.

3. Conversion-focused marketing communication

Making conversions can be as simple as contacting a lead at the right time. Over 12 months of marketing messages, you will be able to better predict how a message will fare before you send it.

Using the knowledge you have garnered over the course of the year and the connections you have pinpointed as your most highly-engaged, it will be simple to construct the right message to bring in new business.

Our managed email marketing campaigns to the transport sector

If you purchase our managed email marketing campaigns to the transport sector, our expert team of copywriters and designers will create a compelling and eye-catching email to send out to the contacts you’ev chosen once a month.

After three days, we send you a full analytics report showing:

  • which recipients opened your email and how many times,
  • which recipients clicked through to your website and how many times, and
  • which recipients opted out of being included on future campaigns

For direct replies and queries you receive from your campaign, we will forward those to you within half an hour of receipt for immediate follow-up.

Following up or support with a telemarketing campaign

Most businesses find that a combination of email marketing and telephone marketing approaches have a far higher rate of conversion than either of these strategies on their own.

In order to build a stronger connection with contacts from your UK delivery companies list, we offer follow-up outsourced telemarketing services. We will contact a combination of:

  • the transport companies on the database you most want to do business with and
  • the UK transport companies who open your email and click through to your website the most.

We will provide you with an online campaign folder where you can view these calls as they happen in real time and manage any follow up actions required.
