There’s tons of data sources out there, but there’s lots of bad data sources out there too. One needs to be able to ask a few simple questions about where to obtain reputable data and its freshness.
That’s a key predicament. One needs to know which simple questions to ask and where reputable sources of good data are. The best data sources are based on positive references or proven experts in the industry who take care of each other.
When I work with clients, I always reach out to at least two or three or sometimes four different reputable data sources to see if there is a match between a client request and whether a business contact is the proper solution for a respective customer.
For obvious reasons, one should always steer clear of old data. But where should a person go to? Someone that you can trust and someone who can find a successful outcome and resolution for the client – hopefully, you’ll consider asking me for help. There’s no cost or obligation so you can reach out to me anytime. Thanks.

The Tuesday, August 23 primary is around the corner. In a transient area, registered voters move in and out of a precinct or a district. A phone number, an email address and contact information changes every day. Candidates and campaigns may be doing one phone append, but have you considered a second pass on a voter file for a phone append through a different nationwide reputable data base using a reliable vendor source? When you use a primary business source, there will be unmatched records still left to be identified and to be matched, so it only takes one more business day to contact someone else like me who can do a second pass or a third pass through a different nationwide data base to match more phone records as possible. The minimum for a phone append match is $150. The grassroots outreach is worth the time and effort for one more business day to match more phone records where reaching out to absentee voters or vacationers where a small number of potential votes can and will make a difference between first place and second place in a contested primary. Good luck and may the best and most organized campaign be victorious.
