This category of data includes many thousands of different files. Each file comprises names and addresses of individuals or businesses who have taken some form of action to contact the marketing company.
Most of the data include mail order buyers of products and services. Many others include requests for information. These responses come from all forms of media such as magazines and newspaper ads, direct mail solicitation such as catalogs, circulars or letters, plus radio, TV, the Internet and telephone. Popular types of marketers in terms of volume are the magazine publishers or their reps, fund raisers, insurance companies, stock brokers, banks, home improvement companies plus the tens of thousands of retail stores, health providers, professional services and self-improvement firms and the mail order catalog companies.
These files may contain a few thousand to millions of names. The one characteristic common to all is that the person has taken action to actually contact the advertiser. It may be a request for further information or an outright purchase. These files are available for one time rental to non-competing firms. Generally, a data owner requests a sample mailing piece or telemarketing script to determine if it is a competitive offer. These files are provided on a one-time use basis and remain the property of the data owner. The rental may be arranged through Dunhill at no cost to you.
Multiple files may be merged and then compared with the renters own file of customers or with a compiled file. Merging and purging the duplicate records may significantly reduce the final mailable quantity and result in significant printing and postage savings.
