A new service from a Victoria-based research company allows marketers to purchase targeted business lists online. These lists can be used for direct mail, phone sales, or market research purposes.
The service, created by the Canadian Office for Applied Research Studies, can be found at sales-lead.ca
"Our unique proposition is that buyers can create their lists online, in real-time, and receive an instant preview," says Theo Bradshaw, Chief Operating Officer, "Unlike other vendors, once the data is purchased we do not hide it behind a proprietary interface. The list is available for immediate download in CSV format, suitable for import into CRM and mail merge applications."
The service includes companies in the manufacturing, retail, and service provider sectors. Pricing starts at 12 cents per lead. In addition to standard mailing and physical addresses, lists include full contact information for company executives, including job title, email address and direct phone number. Lists also include company profiles and industry codes. For an extra fee, the list can include value-added data such as additional company contacts, longitude/latitude, and Google PageRank.
