Data cleaning might be something you think about doing as a business, but fail to allocate the time and resources to actually action. It may be something that you think doesn’t really affect your business and in the long run is a waste of time. Or you may see the need and benefit and just don’t know how to do it. Well, in this blog we emphasise why data cleaning is a must do in 2022!
The Cost is too high NOT to!
Having clean data for your marketing efforts is essential. This may seem like a no brainer, but how many wasted emails, resources or targeting campaigns go out to old or fake contacts because we have failed to clean our data, yet again.
This wasted effort accumulates over time and can incur unnecessary costs.
It is silly to put effort into contacts that 100% guaranteed to go nowhere. So why do it? Cleaning up your data is crucial to streamlining your marketing and outreach efforts and hence saving your money and time.
Also, we are in a time when prices are rising. Even the digital world is not immune to the price hike. Previously exploited marketing efforts such as ads are increasing in price and it can be hard to maintain a competitive edge. If our data is not clean then you are definitely shooting money into the void, money that could be better used elsewhere to gain necessary customers.
Clean Data Yields Results
Dirty data is useless. You need clean, reliable data that reaches real people. By cleaning your data lists, you can streamline your marketing efforts. You won’t have to waste time, removing people from lists, clearing all the spam, or dealing with bounced back emails or lack of response. Instead, with a clean list, you can focus on contacting the individuals and strategising clever ways to convert them into sales.
The first step to yield results is to actually be reaching real people in the first place.
There are more and more fakes out there
There hasn’t been a more important time to clean your data lists as more and more business is done virtually. In the past, we could get away with less virtual business dealings because we had face-to-face supplementing, but in these times, things can quickly revert back to virtual only. If your data lists are not up to date, you may miss out on keeping in contact with potential clients. It is vital to be able to retain relationships online and remind people about your business, services and potential updates. Clean data maximises your ability to reach the most people while you are unable to outreach in other ways.
