Radius Filtering allows a user to select a group of targeted contacts within a specified distance of a person’s address (usually a job that was recently sold or installed). View or print the list and/or send mailers to these contacts. All records must have latitude and longitude for radius filters to work. There must also be records in the system to perform the filter on, if the records aren’t in MarketSharp, this filtering process won’t work.
A list of prospects surrounding a specific address can be purchased from Leads Express. Since the list would already contain contacts within a radius of an address, latitude and longitude are not needed.
NOTE: Our Development team can populate all the Latitudes and Longitudes into every Contact Record in MarketSharp for a $250 fee.
How to Create a Radius Filter: When Latitude and Longitude are present in MarketSharp
Go to the List View for the contacts section that should receive mailers
Click Add on the filter line
Give the Filter a Name

Search for the target in the system by typing in some of their information and clicking Find
NOTE: People that do not have latitude and longitude will not show up in this list, nor will they be included in the radius mailing

Enter the Radius (mi) to generate a list of people to mail to (ie- .5) – results can also be limited to one zip code in this area
