It's very common for companies to build…on their own mailing lists over the years.…Makes sense, because you have customers that you need…to keep track of them, and market to them.…
You may also put together a list of prospects to market to,…which includes people who have inquired or leads you've gathered at trade shows.…One thing to note is that you should…always be working to enhance your house list.…Adding depth to your customer database can help you…move into more sophisticated forms of marketing in the future.…Like targeted marketing with personalization.…
