CONSUMER EMAIL APPENDAppend active email addresses ... NOT passive email addresses!
What are passive email addresses? Like most people you probably have at least one passive email address … which is simply an email address that is rarely checked. Could be an email address that was created years ago but is no longer used; the email address is still deliverable … but never checked. Passive email address could also be an email address that we frequently use when requesting free info … a trick to avoid receiving a deluge of promotional emails to our primary email address. There are a multitude of reasons why most of us have passive email addresses.
Passive vs Active Consumer Email Append: Did your consumer email append provider mainly append passive or active email addresses? Facebook is one way to answer this key question … as most Facebook users give Facebook their primary – active email address. Another option is split your email append among multiple email append providers and then measure the Open/Click rates; the email append vendor with the highest Open/Click rate is obviously appending the most active email addresses.
Consumer Email Append - Reality Note: Every email append provider will have a mixture of passive vs active email addresses … nature of the beast. However, the key point is the percentage. Our research shows that all the low-cost email append providers are appending passive email addresses … for the simple reason that passive email addresses are very cheap to acquire and re-sell. Active email addresses are sourced from some of America’s largest and most reputable merchants … thus significant data royalties are required for the premium data … royalties which are of course rolled-into the active email append price.
Why the high email append match rate? As a sly way to get a high email append match rate … and more money … some email append suppliers will append any email address within the household. Example, they will append the teenage daughter’s email address for John Smith Sr. Example:
Contact Name = Jim Jones. Email Address = JJones@gmail.com
Contact Name = Jim Jones. Email Address = LeslieJones@gmail.com
Another reality check: as with the active/passive issue, all email append vendors will a have degree of error … appending email address for the wrong household member – impossible to avoid; thus the goal is to measure the “degree” of error. Which email append vendor has the highest wrong household member rate? A quick way to compare is to simply calculate the percentage of email addresses that have a strong affinity rate to the contact name. DMDatabases can provide this name affinity - email append report.
