After you buy a mailing list from one of the online companies (melissaData or InfoUSA) do you own it? Can you then go out and sell it to another company? We just bought our first from Melissa Data and we didn't sign any contract saying we can't.
Nathan said:Unless you found some really unique company you cannot sell the mailing lists. They spell that out pretty clearly on the contracts I've seen.
Did you notice an electronic contract that you had to ever hit an accept button on?Humble Abode said:I used Melissa Data and I never got a contract... I talked to the lady on the phone for about an hour then paid with a credit card. She e-mailed me the list the next day.
I'll be sure to post the results of it. I can tell you this, if it works and we get more than 1/4% return rate, we will NEVER stop doing mailings, every 3-4 weeks all year long. We have been pussy footing around with our advertiseing up until now. We don't have the client base to be kept constantly busy with word of mouth yet. This and sucsesive mailings will be us finally buying our word of mouth.easyrider241 said:I would like to know how that mailing list works out for you Humble Abode :Thumbs: I am thinking of trying some myself???
Did you sign an electronic contract when you worked with them?Mike Finley said:The last time I used their list I did ask them if I could use it more than once and they said yes to that, but I never asked them about selling it to someone else.
