VeraData - Who we are and what we're about.
VeraData provides data and integrated marketing services to a variety of companies. Our reason for being is to design better marketing lists, along with more structured, intelligent testing strategies that continuously improve your campaign results.
VeraData is a highly collaborative, highly consultative company whose founders and employees bring considerable experience to your organization. Our value proposition is simple: give away the intellectual property with the data and services... you buy these products and services anyway, why not get an integrated/direct marketing professional to evaluate your efforts and provide detailed recommendations that will provide greater ROI?
We dig into every aspect of every database, every marketing vehicle and every lead generation program to bring you the most complete, up to date marketing information available. Add to that a thorough discovery of your business issues, performance indicators and campaign goals... improvements are inevitable. We look out for your best interest... after all, we're only as good as the results obtained by the individuals who choose to do business with us.
If you're tired of the 'we want to be your partner' sales pitch that turns into 'we really only want your money', we understand! That's why we're here. We want to be your catalyst for improvement. Idealistic? Maybe... but that's our goal.
In a world where there is too much emphasis placed on 'activity' and 'keeping busy' over 'thought' - not enough time is spent thinking... we value creative thinking and put it to work for you. We do not seek to be, nor will we be all things to all people. As a boutique integrated marketing agency, to maintain our mission of being the company that genuinely cares about and actively contributes to the success of its customers, it is necessary for us to limit the number of clients we service. Managing growth and preserving the VeraData brand are important to each of us whose futures depend on its success. It is, after all, the 'turn and burn - bottom line' corporate mentality that precipitated the launch of this business.
VeraData.com is simple by design. We improve your results. We grow your bottom line. Period.
We appreciate, thoroughly respect and support VAR's whose clients can make use of sophisticated data applications and integrated marketing services. We offer contracted referral programs (for your protection and peace of mind), aggressive pricing structures, direct selling support, educational support (product, sales, strategy, vertical) and we will travel both with and for our third party resellers. Need a list provider who will put skin in the game? VeraData is for you.
Our Vertical Expertise: Non Profit, Franchise, Multi-Cultural, Renewable Energy, Retail, Insurance, Travel, Financial, Agriculture, Recreation and Sports and Entertainment.
