A successful marketing campaign depends on your ability to understand who your current customers are. One of the best methods to learn more about your existing customers is to use lighthouse list COMPANY to perform a Demographic Overlay on your database. Just like our Consumer Demographic Overlay can increase your knowledge about individuals and households, our Business Demographic Overlay can provide valuable information about the companies that you conduct business with or to help you target businesses that fit your criteria. This information allows you to create a profile of your best customers.
