Junk Mail

As soon as you list your business in directories and telephone books, register a limited company or otherwise publicise your business, it can generate an overwhelming amount of unsolicited mail and cold-calling.

It has been possible for some time, to register a residential address and telephone number for the mail preference service and telephone preference service.  Companies must check that the addresses/telephone numbers are not registered in these databases before making contact.  Therefore, registering for MPS and TPS can drastically cut down on the amount of unsolicited mail and telephone calls.  Both services are completely free, so don’t pay anyone who says they will do it for you!

It is also now possible to make a corporate registration for the telephone preference service (although, if you work from home and your home number is already registered, you cannot register it again for the corporate service)
