When I am testing data, is it better to send a larger quantity to one or two lists, or smaller quantities to 3 or more lists?
When you’re prospecting with lists, there really is no “silver bullet” strategy that applies to all, however I have always been an advocate of testing smaller amounts to multiple lists. This allows you to measure results accordingly in order to:
- Apply additional resources/budget towards the better performing lists
- Refrain from mailing to lists that simply do not perform
- Introduce new test lists on future runs
The goal is to test, test, test – test until you find something that performs as well, if not better, than your current “champion list” so that eventually, you have a system that continuously produces positive results. Don’t expect a grand slam at your first at bat with lists – it will take some time before you are producing consistent results.
