While we’ve taken a look at how to buy mailing lists, what to expect with mail lists, how much mailing lists cost, and how to create effective direct mail, we’ve never taken a closer look at the best options available in the world of mailing list vendors.
While we have established the distinction between direct mailing list brokers, compilers, managers and broker-managers, we want to take a closer look at the best options available for direct mail list companies.
To change this, we’ve compiled the following list of the 6 best mailing list companies for 2023:
LeadsPlease is widely known for their mailing list services and they do a great job at telling you what you can expect along with providing you the details from the get-go. They provide a unique set of business services that are highly specialized across a broad array of industries.
Since they specialize in delivering a large amount of consumer and business data to all sorts of industries, they can generate highly customizable mailing lists that can help you reach the audience you are hoping to reach.
Another great thing about LeadsPlease is they also provide print services as well so you can print and mail all in one place. The drawback, however, is there printed materials are pretty limited.
As their name might suggest, DirectMail.com does a great job providing direct mailing services, but what they also provide that makes them one of our top 6 is a unique blend of integrated marketing techniques and tools that empower their mailing lists to be as impactful as possible through analytics and data.
By strategically specializing in a set of 9 industries, DirectMail.com provides highly useful intelligently curated lists that can help businesses in any of their listed industries achieve their business goals, no matter how complex or confusing it may seem.
While they may not offer an instant mail list count and price configurator, they do offer a nearly infinite set of parameters for business, consumer, or “specialty” lists.
While it might be a little less convenient to have to contact a sales representative and request a quote for your desired mailing list, the ability of their list managers to identify the best possible mailing list for your direct mailing campaign’s needs is excellent. And they’re able to price competitive lists with counts comparable to competitors at relatively competitive prices.
The ability to order a list based on your description of your direct mailing campaign’s intent is a unique asset that Caldwell List Company provides not only as a convenience, but as a way of custom fitting the mailing list solution to the list-buyers’ budget or geographic needs.
While other mail list providers may specialize only on providing mail lists, they typically don't offer many features that are actually useful that you can’t also set using Conquest Graphics’ mailing list configurator. What Conquest Graphics' configurator offers is the perfect balance between simplicity and customization. This gives you the ability to customize the qualifiers that really matter when it comes to forming a targeted direct mail audience. To see this configurator in action, you can visit our mailing list acquisition page.
Unlike other direct mail list providers, Conquest Graphics offers unparalleled customer support, enabling list buyers who may be new to the whole mailing list acquisition process to place orders through in-browser web chat, by email, phone or even by custom quote form submission.
Not only does Conquest Graphics offer a more user-friendly experience, but we also utilize our years of experience with mail lists to focus more intensely on the quality of our customers results. Which means you can ensure that your expectations are met, and you have chosen a vendor who cares about your success.
All you need to do is describe the intent of your direct marketing campaign and give us your geographic target, and we’ll generate a list for you at prices that are highly competitive with (and in most cases beat) the prices of the mailing list providers listed in this blog.
LISTGIANT offers a very informative website and a clean design that other mailing list sellers would do well to make note of. The layout of the information makes it nearly impossible to avoid reading further down the page and learning more about what makes their mailing lists unique without even realizing it.
To instantly access any of your previously configured counts or orders anytime, LISTGIANT offers a portal that offers 24/7 access to list creation and review tools. This portal replaces the old fashioned but all-too-common source of the list broker, which then makes it so you can only generate list counts and build possible lists during their business hours and days. The portal allows you to make the most of their unparalleled high-quality collection of lists and it allows for full customization as you go about setting parameters and qualifying leads.
LISTGIANT offers a free trial of their list building portal through which anyone can get a feel for how their mailing list portal works and how they can easily use it to build high quality mail lists.
