How good is my Listsource criteria?

5 Replies

*Edit* This is also my first post so Hello Everyone :)

First of all thank you all for the help I really do appreciate it. 

Anyways here is my List source criteria, I was just wondering how good it was. Ive seen a few times on the forums where people say the more targeted it is the better. I was just curious as to how targeted this was and how I could possibly make it better.

This list includes 3 Zip codes(not the one with radius).

Also the list has 182 leads because i ticked "Remove duplicate property mailing address".(238 before)

The reason I ticked it because I figured those are just investors right?

Was there any particular reason you excluded corporate owned properties? There could be motivated investors who want to sell for a variety of reasons. They could produce a lot of dead leads also, but there could always be the couple of leads that lead to a deal or two. Just my opinion...

No there is no particular reason at all. Although My budget for direct mail at the moment is a bit low so I might want to filter out as many dead leads as I can. Opinion?

 sorry forgot to quote you back.

I don't want to be a triple poster but does anyone have any tips they could throw me?

Check out this podcast and listen to how the guy Joe creates his list. Some very good information in there, and I was actually using a lot of this for my next marketing campaign. The podcast is also great for not just wholesaling, but some great marketing tips that any investor can incorporate into their business to get more leads, and in turn more deals. He does pitch his program in there many times, but if you just grab the useful content I think it would be very beneficial to you. Hope this helps. Keep us updated on how things turn out for you.
