The Gh👻st in the Machine

HAVE YOU EVER MET ANYONE THAT'S REALLY PASSIONATE?

So passionate... it's almost scary?

Maybe they love cats, and have 137 of them.

 

THAT’S HOW OUR TEAM FEELS ABOUT DATA AND MARKETING, WE LOOOOVE IT!

We wanna marry it... We look at lead tracking spreadsheets like some people look at all you can eat buffets… they get us excited!

If you can point out your perfect customer, we’ll find a way to clone them.

If you say you want to be seen, we’ll clone you, too!

 

WE MAKE MARKETING MAKE SENSE.

If you’ve got a campaign in mind, we will figure out how to track it, improve it, and repeat it.

Call us, we’ve got a heart-on for marketing data and we want to share the love!

A Type Data provides business and consumer data lists including postal, telemarketing, and email information to businesses that want to market their services to new customers. A Type Data offers several list services including; list purchasing, data appending, and data analysis. David quickly saw that the data business needed a branded marketing front end, so he opened DOPE Marketing.
