What is the DNC List?

The DNC or “Do Not Call” list was created in an effort to empower consumers to block telemarketing phone calls.  This registry is a government initiative backed by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).  Consumers are required to register their numbers and within 31 days of registration they will be put on the list and telemarketers are no longer allowed to call them.
This list has posed great challenges for businesses that leverage telemarketing – not only does it limit the opportunities in that particular channel but it also requires that companies maintain regulatory compliance.  You, as a business, are responsible for managing your lists so that you do not violate compliance of the DNC.  This can be an extremely tedious and daunting task – which is why Natimark has developed a process that can handle this for you!

We maintain and update the three key lists that are used as part of the DNC registry – the National FTC Do-Not-Call File, the DMA Telephone Preference Service (TPS) and the DMA Pander File.  Upon engaging Natimark for this service, the records will be automatically suppressed to ensure that you are in compliance with government mandates and federal guidelines.

What is a Reverse Append?

Do you have a list of contacts with phone numbers but no names?  Here’s some great news: you aren’t in a hopeless situation; you can consider updating your database using a reverse append!

Essentially, a reverse append is used to add names and addresses to existing phone numbers.  Natimark can link your consumer or prospect list with accurate, updated address information so you can leverage the full channel.

Truly penetrating your customer base requires a multi-channel marketing effort.  In order to do this you need to make sure you have appropriate contact details to support a multi-channel effort.  We find reverse appends to be particularly helpful in this area.  Did you purchase a list that simply contains phone numbers?  We all know that in the digital age most people screen their calls and have a low tolerance for telemarketing.

In completing a reverse append, you open up the channels in which you can communicate with your clients.  Direct mail is a great way to stand out as an organization – as the world relies predominantly on digital services, receiving a piece of mail that isn’t a bill has become quite rare.
