Default Mailing list help

Hey all,

I am looking for a company that supplies mailing list based on street or neighborhoods. For example, say I do a landscape job on a customers home who lives on 1st street. I am looking for a company where I can get the names and addresses to mail to everyone on the street or within a block or two. We might be only talking about 20 or 30 addresses max. I know relators do this all the time. I constantly get post cards for local agents when a house sells or goes up for sale either on my street or a block or two away. Just not sure where they are getting the names! Had the same thing happen when other contractors are performing work in the neighborhood (roofing,windows).

I am pretty sure I read on the forum last spring about a few members who used such a service. I tried to search for it and keep coming up empty.

I am pretty sure this is some kind of subscription that you would pay monthly for. I just can seem to find a company that offers it.

Any ideas or advice.

Thanks!
Jay

Here in Canada, I can get it from the post office and I can select to omit those who do not wish promotional material also.

I used DirectMailTools.com for my fall mailing campaign and was pretty happy with the results.

you can put in any address and set a radius around that address down to 1/10th of a mile around that point.

Thanks Steve, lots of good information. I only wish Chestin whould have mentioned a few companies that offer the service in his posts. I have contacted a few of the bigger companies and havent been successful yet.

Let us know which companies you contact that you feel would work well for a lawn care business.

Also, one of the mailing list company names I remember was http://www.melissadata.com/

They have been talked about quite a bit on the forum in the past.

when I was doing my initial searches for contact lists for my lawn service ads, the problem I was running into was high minimum purchases.

What I use around here is the County Assessor page for my county. I just type in the address I worked at and it shows the house with the land. Where the land is outlined, I can click on the neighbors land and their page will come up with a picture of the house and all information. Didn't know if this was an option?? Let me know. If not, sorry for the waste lol
