How to Buy Mailing Lists That Get Results
Consider the following when you buy marketing listsAt Mailing Lists Direct, we believe educated consumers are the best customers. Knowing what to consider when you need to buy a mailing list is the first step to purchasing a high-response list.
- List Size Today you can buy mailing lists with less than 2,000 names or more than a million. The size of your list depends on your marketing goals and budget. The key is to decide how big you want your campaign to be and buy a marketing list best suited to the size.
- Cost When you purchase mailing lists, you’ll be billed at a cost per thousand. Lists typically range from $50 to $85 per thousand names, with specialized lists going for $125 to $175 per thousand, and sometimes more. Phone numbers cost between $50 to $100 or more per thousand and business email lists average $400 per thousand, including transmission. The cost should help you determine what size list you can buy for your budget.
- List Description The list description is very important in helping you determine if you’re buying the right list to reach your market. This description will tell you the list’s source and history, and provide a profile of the type of buyers it represents. If that information is in alignment with your target market, then it’s a good list for you.
- Selections Available The selections available refers to the filters you can use to refine the list. In general, the more selections available, the better you’ll be able to narrow the list to your target market.
- Frequency of Updating A clean list will get you a far better returns—and prevent you from sending your campaigns to people who are no longer at a particular email or postal address.
