Let’s assume that you already know how to choose a reliable list broker. You know that you need to be careful to stay away from the spammers who don’t understand the difference between a quality Email list and a crap list made up of scraped Email addresses. Now, you’ve narrowed it down to a handful of list brokers who you believe have quality products and you’re trying to decide who you should work with. Here’s how to decide:
What Kind of Lists Do They Have?
One list broker may not have the kind of list you need while another one will have what you need. For example, if you need a list of people who are interested in buying electronics, then the list broker who has an MLM list isn’t necessarily going to be the one that you should work with, even if he or she happens to be a great person.
Of course, many list brokers offer multiple lists (we do and most others do as well), so it’s important to ask questions from the list broker to find out whether they have a list that’s right for you or not. Don’t just assume based on what you see on the website.
Do They Offer Support?
Sometimes, you can find a reliable list broker who will provide you with a marketing list and who will even provide proof that these people agreed to be on a list but they don’t do more than that. A good list broker can offer you much more than that. They can also offer you help and advice on how to use your newly purchased Email list to make money (as we do with this blog). Therefore, if it’s a tossup between two places that seem to have equal materials to offer otherwise, look for someone who will work with you to help you make your campaign a success story.
Consider Working With More Than One List Broker
Of course, there may be times when you will find two list brokers who both seem to be equally matched and who both have what you need. In this case, it may very well be a great idea to try working with both of them. Then, see which one works better for your needs so that you can choose ultimately which list broker you want to continue working with for the long term.
