from other business-to-business sources?
of our information is locally gathered, locally verified and updated
by data researchers who live and work here in Memphis. We are
very lucky to have a dedicated, hard-working team of data researchers
who've been with us for a number of years. This group of people
is extremely detail oriented, and provide consistency and reliability
in an age where dedicated workers are hard to find.
task of telephone interviewing thousands of companies each year
is not easy. Their job also includes a great deal of re-checking
information when it doesn't "sound right," or calling back to
speak to a supervisor. It entails a great deal of intuitiveness
in getting all the information. And getting it right.
national sources with information on Memphis companies compile
their information from other locations. As such, their researchers do not have the advantage
of knowing the market first-hand. We invite anyone to compare
our data for accuracy and depth to lists from any source - whether
national or local.
often is your information updated?
Doing Business In Memphis database is a dynamic entity
and is updated constantly. We make changes to the data on
a regular basis as we learn of changes, from a variety of sources,
in a listing's key personnel, employee size, address, etc. Plus,
we are constantly adding new businesses, and deleting others that
have closed or moved out of the area. We survey the entire
database by phone once a year to insure the greatest accuracy
in the data.
you include sales data or revenue figures for the businesses listed
in the directory or database?
Unless a company is publicly traded and therefore required by
SEC regulation to disclose it's sales and revenue data, there
is no way to verify the accuracy of the information. Estimates
or guesses by third party data vendors, whether local or national,
should be considered suspect. Private companies rarely choose
to accurately disclose sensitive financial and sales data.
you publish email addresses for your listings?
We're opposed to email spam and support efforts within the marketing
community to limit unsolicited email marketing, so we choose not
to publish individual's or business's email addresses.
