On-Demand Lead Verification allows learning institution to reach out to more prospects, improve marketing
VIENNA, Va., March 13 // - Professional Career Development Institute, LLC (PCDI), one of the nation's premier distance learning institutions (www.pcdi.com), has partnered with TARGUSinfo to increase the number of online leads that it can contact.
PCDI pitted TARGUSinfo On-Demand Lead Verification(SM) services against data services from other vendors to find out which one would help it identify as many good leads as possible. PCDI chose TARGUSinfo because its solution allows the institution to enhance leads that are missing address or phone-number information. With TARGUSinfo services, PCDI fills in the missing data for good leads that other vendors erroneously said to reject.
For PCDI, another key feature of the TARGUSinfo solution was its flexibility in determining lead quality. Instead of throwing away scads of good leads - or wasting its time and resources on bogus lead after bogus lead - PCDI has customized and fine-tuned the business rules that govern its verification process.
"The flexibility that TARGUSinfo offered ultimately helped us become a better marketing organization," said Stuart Wingate, Director of Interactive Marketing for PCDI. "We've been able to capture more leads and develop rules based on lead quality, which gives us greater opportunity to convert them to enrollments."
"PCDI knew it could be getting more opportunities out of its online leads and now it does," said David Wengel, General Manager of Interactive Markets for TARGUSinfo. "TARGUSinfo is focused on providing forward thinking institutions, such as PCDI, with the real-time data tools needed to reach more of their prospects."
With TARGUSinfo On-Demand Lead Verification, companies that generate and buy online leads can confirm the quality of vast numbers of leads in a split second.
This automated solution provides the most accurate answers available by performing a comprehensive evaluation of each lead. TARGUSinfo verifies that each lead's name, address and phone number are not only correct but relate to that person and that the phone number is currently connected.
