Goneaway Supression

Goneaway Suppression Service

Mailing is a part of every promotion and publicity campaign. As a business owner, you spend a lot of time collecting addresses and location details of your customers so that you can send regular mailouts and keep in touch with them. However, your customers do not stay in the same place forever. They naturally move away to different places because of professional or personal demands. Goneaway suppression offered by DES Data Cleansing Services can help your business save resources, time, effort and money.

Why is our goneaway suppression service important?

The importance of goneaway suppression cannot be underestimated. Recent surveys in the United Kingdom have shown that every year, 12.2% of people move home and around 30% of businesses move to a different location. It is important that you understand the implications of these statistics on your business.

Sending mailouts to an address where your target customer no longer resides can damage your brand image, in addition to wasting your resources. It reflects the unprofessionalism of your business. The new residents at the address can be annoyed when they receive correspondence meant for someone else. So, you might lose a prospective customer. Your brand image suffers. Your mail marketing campaign also suffers.

With our goneaway suppression services, you can avoid all such problems.
