Utilizing a Bankruptcy Mailing List

Jun 17, 2008
For many businesses, the need for a consumer mailing list is critical. The reason for this may not be so obvious to individuals who are unfamiliar with direct mail advertising but, to those who understand the need and the value of mailing lists, they help to bring new businesses into the fold. This is true of all types of business mailing lists -- even ones that include a bankruptcy mailing list. While some may question the possible value of a bankruptcy mailing list, others view it as an important business function.

For instance, if one's primary business function is debt counseling, then a bankruptcy mailing list would provide a multitude of potential clients who could greatly benefit from the services provided by a quality credit and debt counselor. People often have the need for a specific service, but they are not aware that such a service exists, nor do they know that the service can be offered at an affordable price.

In most cases, people who file for bankruptcy do not approach the service provider to initiate the business relationship. It is often up to the service provider to seek out potential clients, pitch the services that are offered, and then initiate a business relationship. This can be done by directly targeting a bankruptcy mailing list, which could take the form of an email list or even a traditional snail mail list.

Acquiring A Bankruptcy Mailing List

There are a number of direct mail services that have access to quality bankruptcy mailing lists. However, in such a purchasing decision, you get what you pay for. In other words, if you opt to purchase a list of names based upon a cut rate price, you may end up with a list of potential clients whose actual potential to purchase services is not very high.

On the flipside, a more expensive service may be able to provide a list of more acceptable potential clients. Beware, however, of overspending. Be sure to examine the different companies and look to see how long they have been in business. If possible, ask to see if they can provide customer references that are verifiable. This can reduce the chances of spending money on a list that does not prove fruitful.

A Word Of Advice

Purchasing a mailing list does not provide any guarantees that a customer will buy the service you are offering. What the acquisition of the list does is provide the potential for new customers from which you may be able to develop a new client base.
