Using accurate data is paramount for your company's marketing campaigns. LeadsPlease updates their databases every 30 days; postal addresses are checked against U.S. Postal Service-approved software, and emails undergo electronic confirmations. For certain databases, like the ones used for new movers and new homeowners, data is updated weekly.
In addition to providing up-to-date lists, LeadsPlease offers businesses special features that are designed to streamline the list generation process and make it more convenient. For example, LeadsPlease can provide generated lists in PDF, Excel/CSV format and as preprinted mailing labels.
LeadsPlease also offers the best guarantee on their postal lists among the services we researched. For consumer, new mover, and new homeowner postal lists, the company guarantees a 95% or higher accuracy rate; LeadsPlease guarantees its business postal lists have an accuracy rate of 90% or higher if you use the list within 30 days of purchasing it. If, however, the percentage of undeliverable addresses exceeds the company's guarantees, LeadsPlease will refund your costs for those addresses. (The company does not, however, reimburse printing or postage costs.)
Our interactions with LeadsPlease's customer service were generally positive. Their representative asked us several questions to make sure they understood our needs before they ran a list count for us. They concisely answered our questions and were affable during our encounter.
While there were many things we liked about LeadsPlease, we found the company's minimum order rule – each order must have at least 1,000 records – restrictive.
