List Management, Mailing List

List Management FAQs

If you have a list of customers, subscribers, or prospects, we can turn it into a substantial source of income through rentals to brokers and major mailers. With our list management team marketing your customer mailing list, we can help generate new revenue streams for you. You simply allow us access to your list and we take care of the rest.

We maintain your list through data hygiene processes to keep it current and compliant with FTC and CANSPAM regulations. Additionally, we will handle all order processing, invoicing and collections for you.

We’ve compiled a list of common questions we receive from our list owners before we get started. Don’t see your question on the list? Comment below with your question and we’ll add it to the list!

How many names do I need?

For lists that are specific and fit in a niche that is in higher demand, we need 50,000 names or more. For lists that are more general, we recommend at least 250,000 names. These amounts help ensure we meet minimum order quantities and can generate more substantial revenue for you. Not sure which category your names fit into? Send us a message and we can help you!

Can I choose who uses my list?

Yes! We send you the mail piece or telephone script for each company that wants to rent your list. You decide whether or not to approve the rental before we begin the order process.

Some of our list owners prefer a more hands-off approach and do not want to be involved in each mail piece approval. If this sounds more your style, our list management team can take care of approvals in-house. Rest assured that only quality offers will be approved.

How often do I need to send data?

Whenever you have a significant batch of new names, that’s a good time to update. The more recent the data, the better it tends to sell. Many of our clients opt to send new data monthly or quarterly.

When do I get paid?

We cut you a check at the beginning of every month for the previous month of orders for which we’ve received payment. You also receive a report of orders that have been place and are pending payment. Keep in mind, it typically takes 4-6 months to receive your first check.

How much money can I expect?

Revenue varies greatly depending on list size, data quality, and niche.

How do you market my list?

Our marketing team highlights lists in email campaigns, on social media, in print, at trade shows and other face-to-face meetups. Our client services and sales teams also recommend your list to current clients whose offer fits your list well.

How do you protect my data from unauthorized usage?

We put “decoy” or seed addresses in every order to monitor the mail date and watch for duplicate mail pieces to the same address. Our decoy addresses are all over the country and well-monitored.

List management partnership

Interested in a list management partnership with ANS? We guarantee 100% satisfaction with our performance. Reach new clients and start making more money from your existing asset. We know that others’ words speak louder than our own, so here’s a review from one of our list owners, Larry B.

“We have been working with American Name Services for about seven years. Our experience with ANS has been fantastic. Over the last twenty years, we have provided data to almost every major company looking to reach the individuals in our data sets. From the start or our relationship, ANS was able to identify and successfully sell our data to some major marketers that we had never reached before. They have a strong understanding of our data and the various revenue generating opportunities for it.

I mostly work with Patti Thompson at ANS. Patti has been an invaluable resource for us. She is easy to reach. Happy to jump on a call. And, most importantly, just a really nice, honest person. We send large datasets with millions of records to ANS for them to store on their servers and fulfill orders directly. Our data is very valuable to us. We spend a considerable amount of money and resources to build and maintain these files. I do not usually send out large databases to third party companies. We do send it to ANS because we trust them and have had such a good experience working with them.”

If you have more questions or are ready to start our list management partnership, contact Patti by emailing pthompson@a-names.com or calling 801-235-8061.
