In 2002, we received a postcard from a mover. Curious about their marketing strategy, we learned that movers were manually creating their lists from local newspapers. With Jennifer’s experience in marketing and Brian’s background in real estate data, they saw a business opportunity that ultimately became First Movers Advantage, LLC.
Through the years, the company has grown. It started with a group of data entry clerks, manually collecting information from newspapers to a full team of programmers developing the newest advances in data collection.
At FMAdata.com, we value our partnerships with moving professionals, both large and small, and all across the country. We measure our success by how successful our customers are at boosting their sales and growing their business with our data.
We offer custom services for the moving industry at MovingLeads.com including pre‑mover mailing lists and postcard fulfillment using the latest in digital printing.
In development is our newest service at FMAprivacy.com which support businesses meet privacy compliance.
Our main office and printing services are based in beautiful Boulder, CO while some of our team members are located around the world.
