About Us

Our History and why our Lists are so inexpensive.

APC is a long-established International Business List Research company with managers in Canada and Hong Kong from where we serve customers from over 12 different countries.

If you have searched for List suppliers then you have no doubt found many of our competitors offering Business Lists at far higher prices than us.

So why are our Lists just so much cheaper?

Well, over 14 years ago our own business model was more or less the same as most of our competitors is now.  We operated from expensive city center offices, we offered telephone support in all the time zones we operated in and all clients were allocated an account executive. Furthermore, at that time we provided a lot of extra, hard-to-find data (and even harder to keep current) such as sales turnover and employee numbers with our Lists that many of our clients simply regarded as too expensive or non-essential particularly when conducting an email marketing campaign.

So in 2009 we completely changed our business model by offering our Lists exclusively online and providing only the type of data in our Lists that most of our clients actually wanted or were willing to pay for, namely; Website, Email and Postal Addresses as well as Telephone numbers. This meant that it became a lot simpler and less expensive to research and then keep this relatively limited but important data up to date. So for example, keeping hard bounces out of our email lists is a straightforward matter when we email those addresses on a regular basis and remove the bounces. (We also use the excellent verification services of Zerobounce.net who also provide a lot of data on complainers and on email addresses with strict blocking filters) This allows us to offer a 100% No Hard Bounce guarantee and a refund for any email addresses that do hard bounce. Compared this to our more expensive competitors who strangely only offer a 95% no bounce guarantee. All the above combined with moving all our basic and tedious research work offshore and moving sales support away from the telephone to email resulted in a huge reduction in our office and staff expenses which allowed us to slash our prices to very economical and competitive levels.
