Build and buy your mobile number base…
Databases of mobile numbers, with selection criteria, are not as common as email or postal databases. There are strict rules governing marketing to mobile numbers and stiff penalities for those who break the rules. The data must be obtained from a reputable source where 3rd party opt-in is guaranteed and people on the list have given express permission for companies to send them texts.
Text Marketer Ltd will not be the supplier of the data. We will put you in touch directly with a company who provides the best quote from our registered list of suppliers.
What does it cost for a database of mobile numbers?
Because 3rd party opt-in mobile number data is very hard to come by, the costs are relatively high. Companies with this precious data don’t sell it cheap!
The actual cost to buy SMS lists depends on the selection criteria complexity and the volume you are buying (the more you buy the cheaper it gets). For an average purchase you should budget for around £120 per 1000 numbers purchased. There is also an average minimum order of 2,500 (higher for some list owners).
What SMS data should you buy?
To get a quotation and list count for an SMS database, you will first need to think about what target market you are going to send your SMS message to.
(please remember the more complex your targeting the smaller the list size will be and the more expensive it will be).
Essential Criteria to buy SMS lists:
- Location – either postcode area/s or town/s
- Age range
- How many numbers you want to buy
Advanced Criteria (lower counts / more expensive):
- Hobbies/Interests (e.g. sports, technology, gadgets)
