Do I have to buy the entire list of printing companies?

No – and we would rather that you didn’t if they’re not all valuable targets to you.

More Than Words’ team has decades of collective experience in sales and marketing, so we understand that a quality bespoke database is far more effective for marketing than an exhaustive printing companies contact list.

When you order a list of printing companies from More Than Words you will be assigned an account manager who can discuss the database with you and match the information contained on it with the specific audience for your business.

Variables for our printing companies’ contact database include:

  • salutation (Mr, Mrs, Dr, Miss, and Sir)
  • contact name (separate fields for first and last name)
  • contact job title
  • printing company name
  • type and legal status of the company
  • postal address including 2 lines for the address, town, county, and postcode
  • email address for the contact
  • telephone number (direct line or main switchboard number)

Your account manager can pull specialist data lists for you if you want to be really specific. Some examples of recent requests we have fulfilled for clients include:

Marketing to printing companies

With our list of printing companies your business can get products and services in front of relevant decision-makers in print businesses with budgets and a need for what you are selling.

Direct marketing is an effective way of marketing to businesses from our list of printing companies – and what our list is designed to facilitate.

Like traditional marketing, direct marketing is about creating and sharing marketing campaigns. However, direct marketing differs in that it is customer-centric and action-oriented.

The campaigns you create go straight to the buyer instead of being promoted to a wide audience.

Email marketing to printing companies

A B2B email database is a key resource for businesses when creating email marketing campaigns.

Our list of printing companies gives you the direct contact and business information for individuals and you can then use email to send offers that are relevant to them directly to a place that 99% of people check every day.

Email marketing campaigns are cost-effective thanks to low-cost (or even free) email marketing software allowing businesses to send emails in bulk with no print or postage costs.

Email also has one of the best returns on investment (ROI) of any other marketing channel, £42 for every £1 spent, according to the Direct Marketing Association.

Finally, email marketing platforms include simple analytics tools that allow businesses to measure the success of their campaigns and make adjustments over time to improve their results.

Telemarketing to printing companies

Telemarketing is an important marketing method for businesses looking to see immediate results.

Our B2B telemarketing data provides your telsales teams with the information they need to qualify your prospects quickly and begin building a relationship with them.

Many businesses use telemarketing calls to generate leads or even just set appointments.

B2B customers are less likely to make a purchase during a cold call but they are often happy to agree to a meeting or second call.

The first call is an opportunity to get more information about your prospects, answer questions and ease pain points.

Prospects are warmer to your business by second call because they have had an interaction with you already – making it easier for you to persuade them to convert.

Do you want us to market to your list of printing companies instead?

If you don’t have the ability to carry out email marketing or telemarketing campaigns, then More Than Words can do it for you.

Our experienced team of copywriters, designers, telemarketing representatives and campaign planners create and implement managed B2B email marketing campaigns and managed B2B telemarketing campaigns on behalf of our clients.

Outsourced marketing campaigns are often preferable for businesses because they give them instant access to the expertise of marketing professionals that would otherwise cost significant sums of money to train or hire.

Our sales and marketing teams are able to create professional campaigns on your behalf and then provide you with full reporting to help you to analyse and refine your strategies over time.

Postal marketing to printing companies

We don’t currently run managed postal campaigns but if you want to outsource your direct mail marketing our  business to business mailing list can be supplied to 3rd party mailing houses.

Just ask your account manager for more information when you get in touch.

Selling to printing companies

The prevalence of online technologies today means that traditional print forms are less in demand – but printing companies are as popular as ever.

That is because printing companies make their money selling solutions, not basic print services.

For a business selling products or services to print companies, the most effective marketing tactic you can use is to demonstrate how your business can help them to provide solutions to their customers.

For many of the prospects on your list of printing companies, standing out from their competition means offering their clients an end-to-end solution, taking them from being one part of the supply chain to making up the bulk of it.

Within print companies, solution selling could involve:

  • online ordering software and management
  • design services
  • distribution and logistics
  • digital asset management
  • multi-channel communications

Work out how your business can help your prospects to deliver more value to their customers, or improve the speed and efficiency of their business operations.
