We’re in a data-driven era, where datasets are shared between marketing, sales, and customer service teams to increase organizational effectiveness and facilitate alignment. When you have high levels of inconsistent data, it’s not just one team taking the hit. It’s everyone. The entire company. The fallout from that bad data extends to every corner of your business that the data touches. With that in mind, how often do you currently audit and clean your contacts database? Once a month? Every quarter? Once a year? What does the process look like? Share your thoughts and current schedule.

With our nurture lists, we update every campaign based on unsubscribed, bounce backs and non-deliveries. With our database of leads, however .... as most people are saying if only there were time and resources once a quarter but we continue to aspire!

Like some have mentioned, cleaning up our database is an ongoing process, but we do intentional sweeps about twice a year. More frequently would be nice, but we're understaffed.

Cleaning our database is a continuous process. We use Salesforce and update/remove company/contact info based on campaign responses, research, and website leads etc.

I wish I could explain our process. We don't have one and no one on the sales team keeps their contacts up to date. So it's not that we have a bad system, we don't have a system, and it's very upsetting.
