Save Money By Doing The Right Thing
Our Foreign Mail Preference Service (FMPS) is an effective means of purging your international mailing lists of consumers who want to receive less advertising mail at home. If you are not already a subscriber, you should be. Using FMPS could be the single most important contribution your company can make to preserve the information flow that is the foundation of successful direct marketing.
Why would a marketer want to use FMPS? Marketers use, as at least one measure of success, the building of long term relationships with customers. They do not want to irritate consumers who might be receptive to hearing from them in other media or who might buy from them directly without being solicited.
Foreign Mail Preference Service file contains names and addresses of consumers from either The UK or Belgium who do not wish to receive promotional mail at home. Individuals register by sending their name and home address to the appropriate consumer organization in their country. Each country, Both countries provide us with their list of consumer names and addresses for distribution. These lists, the "Robinson Lists" as they are known in Europe, are updated several times per year.
