Did you know that FAME, one of our finance resources, also has the functionality to create mailing lists for British and Irish companies? This can be particularly useful if you need to produce a list of company contacts for research purposes. Read on to find out how.
In order to define the companies you wish to contact in your mailing list you first need to build a search strategy within FAME. Companies can be selected using a number of criteria including location, industry sector, business description, financial data and even by number of employees.
View the companies in your results first to check that you have chosen the correct criteria and amend as necessary. See our earlier blog post introducing FAME if you need more information.
Once you have finalised your set of companies, select the ‘Tools’ icon on the left hand side menu and choose the Contact tool.
Start creating your new ‘Contact Selection’ and you will be taken step by step through the process of creating a mailing list. You can choose who you wish to contact (i.e. their company role), the contact information you require (e.g. email, telephone, etc.) and any exclusions you may wish to apply.
The mailing list will be generated and displayed on-screen. If required, columns can be added or removed before exporting. Once complete, the components of the mailing list can be exported to Excel.
Please note that before you use your mailing list to contact any of the companies you must comply with GDPR rules. All files must be first run against the University’s bulk mailer to exclude University contacts who have opted out of receiving emails.
For any questions on Fame or other Library resources, please contact MIRC.
