Data processing / List Hygiene

Do you know who’s getting your mail? According to the U.S. Census Bureau, people in the U.S. move an average of 11.7 times in their lifetime. And according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor, people change jobs every 2.3 years. This means that if you haven’t updated your mailing list lately, there’s a high probability that your direct mail will be undeliverable or received by the wrong person. With rising postal costs and shrinking budgets, smart business professionals are seeing the value in cleaning their mailing lists.

American Marketing can help you with the following:

  • Merge/purge
  • Address enhancements (appends)
  • CASS certification
  • Zip + 4 coding
  • Barcoding
  • Automatic presorting
  • NCOA (National Change of Address)
  • List Suppression
  • Lettertext setup with variable data programming
  • Custom programming
  • Online proofing
  • QR Code Creation/Tracking/Reporting
  • Data encryption capabilities
  • Intrusion Protection System
  • Secured IT department

We accept data in various media formats through our secure FTP site. Don’t risk the chance of wasted postage and materials, or worse yet targeting the wrong prospect. You make a big investment in your direct marketing programs…you deserve the best return possible. Call American Marketing and enhance the response of your next direct mail campaign with our data processing optimization.
