Targeting your Mailing Lists Geography


Following is a guide for selecting the geography for your mailing list by sectional center (the first 3 digits of the zip code). If you need to cover an area broader than just by the zip code selecting the first 3 digits is a great way of doing that. The chart below shows you the SCF ranges for the major metropolitan areas within the US. If you wanted to target the LA area just let your mailing list broker know that you would like to target sectional centers 900-918.
