The most important aspects are your message and market. Your prospect mailing list quality is crucial, most especially its relevance to your market. Likewise the telephone data quality is equally vital, but of no value without a competent telesales professional. Data cleansing (or database cleaning) is the process by which your existing database is updated. This ensures your legal compliance with the Data Protection Act, requiring you to take reasonable steps to keep your data updated. In addition to address cleansing and gone-away flagging, new fields can be appended such as business emails and telemarketing data. It is common for clients to provide a Suppression File with their data orders. This comprises a data list of businesses which should not be contacted, and list brokers should not be supplying. Typical reasons why a business may be resident on a suppression file include: existing customers, existing prospects or businesses requesting not to be contacted again. With the business name and address provided with every record, mailing lists are delivered in a format ready for mail-merging. Mailing data lists may be marketed to multiple times to maximise your return on investment with the prospect database. Contact names are provided where available, ensuring you have an addressee for the mailings. Responsiva have 1.5 million business email addresses available from our source of email lists. The data is verified regularly to ensure email data accuracy and high delivery rates for campaigns. The email data list can be selected by numerous variables including geography, business classification, employee size and job function. An oversupply can be given to cater for the hard bounces too – just ask! Of the business data lists with 99, 100 or 101 employees, more than 99% have 100 employees.
