Custom National Lists

Sorkins Goes National

Sorkins research staff can build a business list covering any city in the nation.

Companies that use one or two national databases miss a large segment of their target market because each database pulls their information from one limited source - the phone book, credit reports, etc.

Once Sorkins staff has your criteria, e.g., industries, locations, revenue, and more, we can compile one list using multiple national and local resources to obtain a complete picture of your targeted market. Yet, we are still more affordable than these national databases.
