Why is Address Verification Useful?

Bad addresses result in lost opportunities and increased costs associated with undelivered mail. Spelling errors, typos and inaccurate information can prevent your message from reaching its intended recipient, directly affecting the success of your marketing campaign. Address verification can help by ensuring only valid billing and shipping addresses enter your systems. By proactively managing the quality of your lists and validating addresses before your campaign is launched, you can increase sales, improve the customer experience, and achieve data-driven success. There are many different ways address verification can be used to do this.
