An Occupant List, also known as a Saturation List, is an ideal way to canvas a targeted area, for the lowest cost.

In this article we’ll walk through the steps of building and purchasing an Occupant List.

From the Lists drop down menu, select ‘Buy List’

The following screen is where you’ll select the list type that you want to purchase. For this article, we’ll select ‘Get Occupant List’.

The system will ask for a log in. Select ‘Guest’ as you're already in your account so the login credentials are not needed.

Once logged in you’ll arrive at the Occupant Geography screen. Here is where you’ll select the geographic criteria for your list. Click on the plus sign next to the criteria of choice and enter the required information for that criteria. The system will process and the Total Leads on the right hand side will populate with the number of records found.

For this example, we’ve chosen a 5 mile radius with the zip code 98225. Once we clicked ‘Add Radius’, the system processed and found 53,780 records.

Another common option is to build a list of recipients in a particular zip code or zip codes.

To do this, select the option for ‘Zip Code’, then enter the state and select the zip code(s) desired. The system will then return the number of records found for that criteria.

Other options are: Carrier Routes, Zip Code Ranges, City, County, and State.

When you’re ready to move forward, click the blue ‘Next’ arrow.

The next screen is the Check Out screen.

On this page, you’ll review the count and the criteria on the right hand side.

On the left hand side You can choose to order all available records or you can enter the number of records you’d like to receive. Each option will show you a single use cost in the section below.

Be sure to name your list, then select ‘List Selection Complete’.

On the checkout page, review and update (if needed) the Order Summary along with the Profile and Billing information. This information is pulled from the Profile information in your account. 

Click ‘Continue’.

The credit card on file is the default payment method. There is an option to use a different card on this page as well.

Review the Order Summary once more and then click ‘Submit Order’.

Once the payment is processed, it will take approximately 5 minutes for the list to be generated and uploaded into your account. You’ll then be ready to use the list in a Smart Send Campaign.
