Consumer and business mailing lists
Consumer and Business Mailing Lists

Three kinds of lists:

  • House lists, which are the customer databases of organizations

  • Response lists, or house lists of other organizations

  • Compiled lists of individuals or companies without any previous indication of willingness to respond, but with some defined and identifiable characteristic(s) such as demographics, psychographics, or ZIP code.

  • Profiling is the process of understanding customers by identifying their demographics, firmographics, or lifestyle attributes

  • Appending this information to the customer file adds valuable information for targeting future promotions, understanding customer defections, and identifying cross-selling and other new business opportunities

  • Data cards provide details on the list size, cost per thousand, its source and history, the average size of the mail-order purchase made by the buyers, and the percentage of the list that is direct-mail generated

  • Data cards also indicate the presence of hot lead names—customers who made a mail-order purchase within the last 30 to 90 days—and the selection by which the list can be segmented

  • Lists age quickly and should be updated frequently

  • Routine updating lowers the cost for address corrections

  • Service bureaus can prevent address corrections by standardizing names, editing and reformatting records, purging lists of duplications, and verifying and correcting addresses

  • Mailing lists are rented, typically for a one-time use. If after testing a portion of a list, the renting organization wants to re-mail or rollout the list (e.g., in continuation), it must pay an additional rental fee

  • List owners make the final decisions on any list rental and may reject rental requests that are inappropriate or competitive

  • Privacy concerns often arise when information collected for one purpose is subsequently used for other purposes

  • Concerns abate when mailers and list renters offer consumers the opportunity to object to this reuse.

  • The National Do Not Call Registry enables consumers to remove their names from contact lists.
