What Is Skip Tracing?
If you’re new to skip tracing it can be confusing to understand exactly what it means.
Skip tracing is the process of finding current contact information, such as addresses and phone numbers, to locate and contact someone. In the past, skip tracing was done by collection agencies and private investigators to track down people who were skipping out on a debt, under investigation, or in trouble with the law.
Today, the term skip tracing is used generally to describe the ways businesses can use public data sources, skip tracing software, and batch search services to find current contact information for the person they want to contact. To reach that person, a business might do searches and make contact with the relatives, neighbors, and associates of that individual.
Whether a business is skip tracing a prospect, lead, or customer, the goal is always to make contact with them by phone, email, text, or mail. BellesLink gives small businesses access to premium public data searches, flexible business phone and text tools, and contact manager that links and manages your work. BellesLink is the all-in-one people search platform that skip tracers and businesses have been looking for.
