List Broker FAQs

- [Q]Should I get my list from a list broker or a list compiler?[A]A list broker is a bit like an insurance agent with multiple solutions that give you a better range of choices to fit your requirements. A data compiler will restrict your choices/options by requiring you to use only their data.
