What is a Zip Code Mailing List?

In the mailing industry, zip code mailing lists are referred to as occupant lists, and the terms can be used interchangeably. These lists are used for saturation mailings.  

A saturation mailing, often referred to as "saturation direct mail," is a targeted marketing strategy that involves sending direct mail pieces, such as postcards to every residence within a specific geographical area. The idea is to "saturate" the area with your marketing message, reaching as many households as possible.

One of the advantages of saturation mailings is that they typically qualify for some of the lowest bulk mail postage rates available. Due to the high density of mail being sent to a single zip code or carrier route, businesses can substantially reduce their per-piece postage rates.

When to Use a Zip Code Mailing List

An occupant mailing list is best suited for businesses, practices, or campaigns that offer products or services with wide appeal. Examples include:

Dentists or Healthcare Providers 

Nearly every resident is a potential patient for the practice.

Local Restaurants or Grocery Stores

New or existing food establishments looking to draw customers from the surrounding area.

Home Services

Businesses like lawn care, house cleaning, or pest control where nearly every household is a potential customer.

Political Campaigns

When a candidate or issue seeks to reach all voters in a specific area.

Community Events

For fairs, festivals, or other events where the goal is maximum local participation.

Retail Stores

When a store wants to attract as many customers as possible from the local area.
