(1) Why do your mailing lists cost more than lists from other companies?
Actually my mailing lists are in priced in a mid-range, costing more than some and less than others.To costs real money to create a quality list. My leads aren't junk from a phone book as sold by some other companies. My analysts dissect censue data and match it to other public and proprietary databases which are all costly to access. It costs plenty to identify genuine opportunity buyers who are still seeking more easy ways to make money. There are no shortcuts. When it comes to mailing lists, if you buy a cheap list you'll get a cheap list. And your costly campaign will fail and your hope of making money will die along with it.

(2) Where do your leads come from?
See answer #1 above.Anyting beyond that is proprietary and considered a 'Trade Secret'.

(3) Why do you offer so many levels of mailing lists at different prices?
My analysts are behind the scenes separating good leads from bad leads (we reject the bad ones – those are the ones other companies sell), and during the process the analysts assign a numerical ‘score’ to them. The higher the score, the better the lead.  Once we know their past buying habits and likeliness of buying again we assign them to a certain level– the higher the level, the better the lead. (But personally I always use my In-House list).

(4) What if I want a mailing list that’s not on your Price List?
Sorry, the only lists I sell are those on my Price List. I don’t make custom lists.

(5) Do you sell phone numbers and email addresses?
I don't sell email addresses but my lists #1-5 come complete with name, mailing address and phone number. All other levels come with name and mailing address only. Should you buy one of my lists that comes with phone numbers you automatically agree that your (or anyone you share them with) use of the phone numbers I provided constitutes your voluntary acknowledgement to totally indemnify me against any complains arising directly or indirectly from said use. We live in a nutty world and in the most litigious nation on earth so I need to protect myself. (I do not run the phone numbers against any 'Do Not Call' list.).

(6) Do you accept credit cards?
Yes, I accept Visa and MasterCard (only) 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on my website. I don’t accept credit card orders by phone or mail. I do not accept PayPal and I do not ship to anywhere outside the USA. If it has a USA zip code I ship there. Finally, I NEVER email lists.

(7) Is it safe to order a mailing list online?
Yes. You may order without worry. There are many layers of protection used that protect your identity, credit card and bank info from outsiders and the protection is periodically tightened so that it stays ahead of those who would abuse us all. Your credit card number is never revealed to me.

(8) Why was my credit card rejected?
After being the victim of credit card fraud I raised the bar as protection from further fraud. If your billing & shipping address differ even slightly (like a misplaced comma) your order is automatically rejected. If this happens to you try to order again being very careful to enter billing & shipping addresses exactly alike. If you don’t receive a personal confirmation from me then your order did not go through and I did not receive it. When rejected I usually receive an email from my bank warning of a 'suspicious transaction'. When this happens I personally examine the transaction and if it appears legitimate I approve it, send you a confirming email and fulfill your order. If the transaction doesn't pass my smell test I reject it.

(9) Why don’t you accept PayPal?
I used PayPal for years until they suddenly decided to no longer accept companies that sell mailing lists. The company I now use  processes about 85% of all credit card purchases in America and they use certain measures I can’t discuss here to protect me (and you) from credit card fraud.

(10) Can I mail you my order?
Yes. Mail your order with your name, address, phone and email address and make it payable to MARK BESHARA and send it to me at 5455 S Suncoast Blvd, Suite 66, Homosassa, FL 34446. Be sure to tell me exactly what list you’re ordering. All orders are confirmed by me by email immediately upon receipt (if you included your email address). Orders paid by cash and money order are shipped within 24 hours of receipt by USPS Priority Mail with tracking. I do not accept checks and never make any exceptions.

(11) Can I mail you my credit card number with my order?
No! I don’t have the ability to enter your card number at my end and I don’t want to know your card number. The ONLY way credit cards are accepted is online.

(12) Can I mail you a check?
No. I do not accept checks and never make any exceptions.

(13) I live outside the USA – can I order a list from you?
No. I do not accept foreign orders and I refuse to send my mailing lists to any foreign address. Should one slip through the net it will be rejected and returned.

(14) How long will it take for me to receive my order?
All orders are promptly confirmed by email directly by me then shipped within 24 hours by USPS Priority Mail with tracking that usually takes three days to arrive. Please anticipate your needs as I do not provide overnight service ot ship by any other carrier. Once I deposit your order with the post office it’s in their hands and I have no control over it. From that point forward delivery of your order is up to the U.S. Postal Service, not me. But I receive alerts form the USPS as your order moves through their system right through until delivery to you.

(15) I’m in a hurry to get my mailing list – will you email it to me?
No. To protect you and me from credit fraud I mail all orders to the billing address of the credit card used to make the purchase. I will refuse your request to mail your order to any address other than the credit card’s billing address or to email your list to you. However I may make an exception only after you become a well-established client.

(16) What’s your very best mailing list?
My lists vary widely in price from about $6 per 1000 to nearly $300 per 1000. Here’s the secret to figuring out which is the best list for your offer: All of my lists are suitable for any Income Opportunity, Business Opportunity, MLM Offer, Gifting or Chain letter offer. But the thing to remember is that the higher the price, the more responsive they can be. I offer lists in all price ranges so there's something for every budget. The best advice I can give you is to buy the best (highest priced) list you can afford now then upgrade as soon as possible, always keeping in mind that the more expensive the list, the more responsive it can be. Remember that the only lists I personally use is my Private In-House list. See my Price List for details.

(17) What do you do with my personal info?
Your personal information is 100% totally safe with me. I don’t add you to any of the lists I sell. In fact the only list I add you to is to my periodic newsletter (and you can unsubscribe at any time). I NEVER reveal your personal info to anyone for any reason… Period!

(18) Can I send you my returned mail pieces for a postage refund?
No. Some other mailing list companies may offer 2-for-1 or a cash refund on returned mail, I do not. I know you’ll have some mail returned despite my best efforts to make certain all lists are entirely up to date. All of my lists are run through the USPS National Change of Address database for forwarding addresses but according to post office statistics about 35% of all movers do not file a change of address with the postal service. To offset this inevitability I send plenty of extra free leads with every order (except on my ‘Specialty Lists’).

(19) How old are the leads you’ll send me?
They’re between 1-4 days old (in other words, Brand New) at the time they are put in the mail to you. Unlike other companies my leads don’t sit on the shelf getting stale waiting for an order.

(20) You used to sell 'Specialty Lists' but they're not on your latest Price List. Why?
I no longer offer 'Specialty Lists'. What I sell is what's on my latest price list.

(21) Can I order a small portion of a ‘Specialty List’ so I can test it?
I no longer offer 'Specialty Lists'. What I sell is what's on my latest price list.

(22) Can I request labels on a 'Specialty List'?
I no longer offer 'Specialty Lists'. What I sell is what's on my latest price list.

(23) How many people will receive the same leads you’ll send to me?
I never sell the same name twice. The mailing list I send to you will not be sent to any other of my clients to give you an ‘exclusive’ chance to sell them your offer. And the list I send you actually belongs to you and you may use it over and over again, as many times and for as many offers as you like. It is yours for your unlimited use. Other companies only rent the same tired lists over and over to many clients and restrict them to a one-time use. They seed the list with decoys and can tell if a client uses it more than once then they bill them and if they don’t pay the real fun begins.

(24) Who will be on my mailing list?
All my lists are random selections of male and female all across the US. Sorry, I'm too busy to accept special requests.

(25) Can you get me a mailing list of realtors in Chicago?
No. The only lists I offer are the ones on my Price List. I do not accept special requests. Please don’t ask the same question again.

(26) Can you get me a mailing list of dry cleaners in San Diego?
You really have to begin paying more attention. The answer is NO. The only lists I offer are the ones on my Price List. I do not accept special requests. Please, please don’t ask the same question again.

(27) How can I phone your office and speak with you?
My phone number is 1-352-503-4668 and is especially for folks seeking a responsive list but needing me to help them pick the right one for their offer. Call, leave me a message, and I'll call you back (M-F, approx 3-4PM Florida time) For all other matters not pertaining to selecting a mailing list please email me to Mark@ExcellentLists.com and I'll respond as quickly as possible.

(28) What’s the ‘free consultation’ you offer?
Sorry, no longer available..

(29) Can I use the mailing list I get from you more than once?
Yes. It belongs to you for your unlimited use. You are free to mail them the same offer over and over, or to mail them as many offers as you want to, as many times as you want to, for as long as you want to.

(30) Do your lists come on labels?
Some do, some don’t. Please read my Price List to find out which is which. It’s a good idea to print the Price List and save it. I apologize that the Price List is overcrowded but everything on it is important and will answer many of your questions so please read it. If my Price List says a particular list does not come on labels, please don’t ask me to provide it on labels. 

(31) Do you charge shipping & handling fees?
No. All handling and shipping charges are included in the prices of the lists.

(32) How do you differ from all the other mailing list companies?
You haven’t been paying attention. Start again from the top. No soup for you! 

(33) What will be in my package when it arrives?
A letter from me, some literature, some special offers and ways to make you a lot of money, plus your leads on labels (if you ordered labels) and a special CD that contains your leads in 3 special formats to make it easier for you to reuse them. Your leads will be in (1) an Excel Spreadsheet so you can sort and analyze them, (2) an ASCII comma delimited file so you can merge them into any sales letter, brochure or other document, and (3) a Word document that will actually print another set of labels anytime you want – all you do is put blank labels in your printer, open this document and push your 'Print' button and the labels will begin printing automatically. No other company provides this added value.

(34) If I order from you, how long before my order is shipped to me?
As I said, all orders are shipped within 24 hours or less by USPS Priority Mail usually taking 2-3 days to reach you. 

(35) How long have you been in the mailing list business?
I first began working with mailing lists in about 1980, generating mailing lists for clients as well as for myself (yes, I too use direct mail). At about that time I built a mail order operation for exercise guru Richard Simmons  and also produced his first three albums. And I have the go-to 'list guy' for both Rice University and the University of Houston for approx 10 years.

(36) Do you ever offer any discounts?
No. The prices on the Price List are final.

(37) Will others receive the same leads you’re sending to me?
No. The leads I send you will be yours exclusively. Remember: "I never sell the same name twice".

(38) What if I need more than one set of labels?
That’s easy. The package I send you will contain a CD that has your leads in a special Word document that will automatically print as many sets of labels as you want, whenever you want. Just put blank labels in your printer, open this Word document, press the "Print" button and they will begin printing automatically.

(39) What if I want to change or cancel my order?
Please make sure you are ordering carefully. As clearly stated on my website, all orders are absolutely final. No cancellations, refunds, changes or exchanges for any reason. When you order you’ll be required to agree to this policy before your order can be finalized.

(40) How many replies/orders will I receive?
As clearly stated on my website, I do not guarantee any specific rate of response and/or any specific percentage of sales. It’s true that my mailing lists were secretly (unbeknownst to me) independently tested by a large MLM organization of more than 3300 active mailers and got nearly a 6% reply. Here’s what their report said: “5.9% response and only 1.5% undeliverable”. I’m rightly very proud of that and I challenge any other mailing list company in America to match that, or even come close.

(41) But what if I’m on a very tight budget?
You have two options. You can either test smaller quantities (250) of my leads or you can order the best list you can afford now and upgrade whenever possible. My Price List explains both options.

(42) What if I want to test your best list?
Just order whatever level you want in whatever quantity you want.

(43) You have so many different mailing lists, how can I compare them all?
You can either print the Price List and spend a few minutes looking it over or you can go to the ‘E-Store’ page on my website where all of my offerings are displayed in one place for your convenience in selecting the list you feel is best suited for your offer. If in doubt, phone me.

(44) I’m working an MLM program, which mailing list should I order?
All of my lists are perfectly suitable for any income opportunity, including MLM, gifting, work-at-home, mailing postcards, etc, etc. If in doubt, phone me.

(45) I'm working a Gifting program, which list should I order?
All of my lists are perfectly suitable for any income opportunity, including MLM, gifting, work-at-home, mailing postcards, etc, etc. If in doubt phone or email me.

(46) I’m working an Income Opportunity, which mailing list should I order?
All of my lists are perfectly suitable for any income opportunity, including MLM, gifting, work-at-home, mailing postcards, etc, etc. If in doubt, phone or email me.

(47) I want labels. What do I do?
When ordering just select labels and you'll receive labels. Easy!

(48) I don't see 'Specialty Lists on your current Price List. What's with that?
I no longer offer what used to be called 'Specialty Lists'.

(49) Do you have a Price List I can have?
Yes. CLICK HERE then print it and save it. 

(50) Do you have a Quantity Discount Price List I can have?
Call or email me when you're ready to buy at least 10,000 leads.

(51) Do you offer discounts for buying large quantities?
Call or email me when you're ready to buy at least 10,000 leads. 

(52) What if I have a question that's not on this list?
If your question isn't covered here just email me at
Mark@ExcellentLists.com and I promise to reply as quickly as possible.If your question is about asking for my assistance in selecting a list feel free to phone me phone me.

(53) I heard you wrote travel guidebooks to Bali. Is it true?
Yes.
I first got the idea of writing a book about Bali (one of the islands belonging to Indonesia) during the two years my wife and I lived there. My first book, ‘Eating Bali’ was published by Times Books International in Singapore. Shortly thereafter I wrote ‘Secret Bali’ about how voodoo and black magic is used against tourists’.My books are available at
www.Amazon.com go there then enter 'Mark Beshara' in the search box.

(54) I heard you won a Gold Album. Is it true?
Yes, and I can still hardly believe it. During the 20 years I lived in Beverly Hills and I wore many hats. Marketing consultant, mailing list specialist, record producer and lecturer. I taught meditation techniques and experimented with sound waves to enduce a trance-like state. It worked so I copyrighted it with the U.S. Library of Congress and began marketing it. Orders began pouring in from all over the world and to my surprise it was being used by hospitals, pain centers, and universities and approximately six months before he was murdered, John Lennon & Yoko Ono mailed me a check for three of them. By 1982 I had sold more than 500,000 so I was awarded a Gold Album by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) – the entity that audits and certifies record sales.

(55) Okay, who the heck are you anyway, and what’s your story?
Okay, here’s my bio – but fasten your seatbelt – it’s going to be quite a ride!

I was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, left home on my 17th birthday, never looked back and have lived life as a adventure ever since, living in places as diverse as Alaska’s Aleutian Islands, Arizona, Los Angeles (Hollywood & Beverly Hills)  Jamaica, Australia, Bali, Java and Borneo.

During my 20 years in Los Angeles I created meditation techniquesteaching them to the movie, music and television industry then I ghost-produced three albums for fitness guru Richard SImmons, and one for my own label, which earned me a Gold Album from the Recording Industry Association of America. My ‘Astral Sounds’ is the first recording ever to win a Gold Album despite containing no music, voices, human or natural sounds and it wound up being the best-selling New Age album of all time. Then I partnered with two attorneys and created a remedial bar review training that utilized my meditationl techniques and I remain the only non-attorney in California history to train law school graduates to pass the Bar Exam.

I then relocated to Bali and during two years there I researched the first two books of what would wind up being my ‘Bali Trilogy’. I then moved to Australia where I spent more than two years on a cool marketing assignment. Then it was back to Bali for a year before moving to Indonesia’s South Borneo when the Indonesian government retained me as a consultant. It was in Borneo I finalized the research needed to complete the third and final title of my trilogy – ‘Scared to Death’. I spent more than six years in South Borneo where my wife & I owned a 200-seat restaurant built on a stationary raft floating in the largest river in South Borneo and to this day I still act as an occasional marketing consultant to the Indonesian government.

Hang in there with me, we’re almost through.

My only real hobby (it’s more of an obsession, really) is early American Rhythm & Blues (circa 1945-62, or ‘pre-Beatles’ as I like to describe it to my avid Beatles-fan wife), and collecting vintage film footage and sound recordings of America’s premier Rock ‘n’ Roll vocal harmony groups of the 1950s. From singing Doo Wop acappella harmony on the street corners of Brooklyn as a teenager lucky enough to be an eyewitness to the dawn of Rock ‘n’ Roll, my dream actually came full-circle when I helped staged some of my musical heroes in 1950s-style revival concerts in New York and Hollywood in the 1980s and, more recently, when I was graciously mentioned in the introduction to the published memoirs of one of my early musical heroes.

I've been happily married since 1988 to my beautiful wife Nurul who is highly accomplished in her own right (a doctor of acupuncture and a college instructor of the Indonesian language). We reside here in Homosassa, Florida.
