Mailing List Services

The Freedman Company is a list broker, that is, we provide free list research and consultations utilizing various resources to locate applicable outside lists and acts as a liaison between you the mailer and the owners or managers of the list. We have access to over 28,000 listings including business and consumer lists in 212 market classifications. We have put together some of the types of lists we provide.

List Services – Types of Lists


Resident/Occupant Lists – This is a list that includes all post office boxes, city routes, rural routes and other route addresses. This is the best list for a saturation mailing. You may select all addresses in a zip code, addresses in specific mail delivery routes. Lists are addressed to “OCCUPANT”, instead of containing the name of the individual at that address. You can select or eliminate post office boxes, apartments and single family homes with this list. The response rate to this type of list is very poor.

Resident by Name (Consumer Lists) – This list is compiled by merging more than one-and-a half- billion records from many sources: White page Telephone Directories, Auto Registration, Credit Information, Mail Order Buyers/Responders, Magazine Subscribers and many others. These lists frequently provide the best means of reaching large groups of specific audiences. For example, you can rent compiled lists of all doctors in Dallas. The response rate is much better than ‘Occupant’ lists but not as strong as ‘Response’ lists.

Response List – These are list of proven mail order buyers. Mail order offers usually get the best return through mailings to ‘Response’ lists of buyers who have purchased a similar product in the same price range.

Donor Lists – Used primarily by fundraisers, these lists contain the names of people who have contributed money to charities and non-profit organizations.

Attendee/Membership/Seminar Lists – These lists contain the names of individuals who have attended a specific trade show or industry event, belonged to an industry association or professional group, or paid for seminar participation.

Subscription Lists – These lists are of people who have subscriptions to magazines and other publications. These are some of the best and largest types of lists.

Credit Card Holders Lists – These names are useful because the prospect can respond to your offer using a credit card.
