QUESTION: What are B2B (business-to-business) lists?
ANSWER: B2B lists reach people at their office or workplace. Consumer lists reach people at home. B2B lists are used for business, professional, industrial and, occasionally, investment offers where the product or service will likely be used – and paid for – by a person in a business or professional context.
QUESTION: How much time should be allowed for list ordering and delivery?
ANSWER: Since list orders are produced according to your detailed specifications, time must be
allowed for fulfillment. Most orders for domestic USA lists are shipped within 7 to 10 working days of receipt by the list owner or manager.
QUESTION: Why are lists so important to the success of my direct marketing campaign?
ANSWER: Experts agree that your choice of lists has more impact on the response produced by your direct marketing effort than any other decision you make. A poorly conceived marketing message will pull more response from a well-targeted list, than a well-conceived message will from a poorly targeted list.
QUESTION: What is a typical response rate for a B2B marketing effort?
ANSWER: Response rates for B2B marketing efforts run from fractions of one percent to as much as 5% or more depending on the nature of the offer. A high-priced offer (e.g. $100+) will normally have a much lower response rate than a low-priced or free offer.
QUESTION: What is keycoding and why is it so important?
ANSWER: The keycode is a simple, powerful way to track the response produced by a particular list. It’s a set of unique alphabetical or numeric characters recorded on the response device
(order form, etc.), so that its return tells the marketer which list produced the response.
