Main methods of keeping the data current

Automated replies from client email campaigns
Each time an email campaign is sent, we receive the automated email replies. This allows us to update those contacts that have left a company, identify sites that have ceased trading and find new details listed in an email.

Direct mail returns
We pay our clients to send us the returns from any direct mail campaigns. This allows us to update site details. 

Website and facebook checks
We regularly check websites are active and the last post dates on facebook are current.

New site openings
Relevant only to sites, we list 5,000 + new openings every year on RPBi Openings and these are cross referenced against existing sites.

Telephone updating
We pay our clients to send us the lists of incorrect telephones used in telesales campaigns. This allows us to update details. We also regularly call companies to update their details.
