Run a Test

Want to run a test of FullContact's technology and data before you sign up?

No problem - we love to prove our value! We have many standard ways that you can test our performance.

Before Running the Test

In order to ensure the best results when running any testing, we recommend you follow
these simple guidelines when preparing your audience file:

  1. Your audience file should be in .CSV format. Here is a template from FullContact’s Platform.
  2. Your list should be a random sample of your customers, with at least 100 records and up to 200k.
    • A truly random sample will provide the most accurate results when running a match test. We do not recommend running match tests on your best or worst customer records, as that will skew your results.
    • Need a larger sample analyzed? Reach out to your sales representative
  3. We recommend that you provide as many acceptable customer inputs as possible, in the correct formatting.

Acceptable Inputs and Formatting


Adhering to these guidelines to prepare for running your match tests will help us provide the most comprehensive view of your data against our Insights Bundles.
