"The Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association has been working with Data Axle since 2015. The results we have seen in our direct mail response using Data Axle have been very strong. Our most recent direct mail campaigns exceeded all expectations. We surpassed our budget goals just three weeks after the mail date, and to date have exceeded budget by $60,000 for that campaign."

Our diverse team of data specialists can help you find the right data, set up delivery, or handle custom processing whenever you need them. We use a number of proprietary tools and processes developed to cater to our clients’ real day-to-day needs.

Ongoing data hygiene

Equip your field teams with printed directories containing all of the latest information on businesses in your market and region in cases where technology isn’t available or reliable.

Suppress unwanted or risky recipients

Suppression processing ensures your message only goes to your intended targets. Our services flag for suppression or remove unwanted records from your files based on different criteria such as:

  • Address type (e.g. nursing homes, residential apartments)
  • ZIP Code
  • 3rd party opt outs
  • Previous orders
  • Current customers

Our privacy scrub services help you flag sensitive records in your database that you should not be reaching out to. This scrub removes consumers and businesses on do-not-call and do-not-mail lists, as well as deceased consumers and those on the ACA Prison Address File.

Key uses of data enhancement:
Get a complete view of your customers

Get to know your customers on a personal level, beyond their name and email – get insight into their location, age, marital status, presence of children, and income, to their hobbies and interests. Use this insight to design products, services, and campaigns that meet their needs and connect with them in their language.

Connect with each audience segment

As you learn more about your prospective and existing customers through data enhancement, you can identify common attributes among your audience segments and find new ways to personalize communications, user experiences, products, and more to forge a lasting relationship.

Identify gaps in your strategy

Use detailed customer profiles to identify previously overlooked or unidentified customer segments that can help you grow your market share, introduce new revenue streams, and build campaigns that resonate.

Focus on the easy wins

Using our customer or transactional data, you can get insights on your customers’ and prospects’ demographics and frequently purchased product categories, to expand your strategy and execute upsell and cross-sell campaigns.

Reach your prospects in another channel

Reach customers in more ways by connecting the dots between their physical and digital identities and activities. Match email addresses with physical locations to extend the reach of your digital campaigns to the physical world, and vice versa.

Eliminate Duplication

Merge different data sources together to create one clean, usable data source that eliminates duplication, reduces marketing costs, and increases the overall effectiveness of your marketing campaigns.

Focus on the records you can reach
Score your data based on its completeness and accuracy to identify deliverable and active records. Allocate your direct marketing resources to just these records to amplify conversions within your planned budget.
