Is Phone Verification Worthless?

posted by Margaret Spencer on February 1, 2016

Is Phone Verification Worthless-There’s one thing that most Online Researcher finds worthless, and that’s phone verification. You don’t really need to verify incorrect information, in fact, all you just need to do is simply change those incorrect information with what the client asked of you. For example, changing “Manager” to “IT Manager” just so you can finish the list on time.

But of course, I lied when I said “Most Online
Researcher Find it Worthless” Because it isn’t worthless, in fact it’s quite the opposite. Of course, there are some Online Researcher who doesn’t really verify incorrect data over the phone. But mostly, some of the Online Researcher relied on phone call to verify if they got the right information.

There are two types of information in the web, a helpful information and a deceiving one, and these two are the main reason why some Online Researcher will ask for a shorter deadline or a longer one. To be honest, Some Online Researcher knows that some information won’t be useful if it’s inaccurate and outdated. That’s why they are relying on Phone Verification and Email Verification.

IT ISN’T WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE (Getting information on the web)

Yes, Information can be found on the web. Most of the information that Online Researcher rely on is basically on the Web. Which means that anyone can be an Online Researcher. But of course, only experienced Researcher are being trusted by some companies, but be cautious, because even though they are experienced, they can also be cunning and somehow unreliable. And trust me when I say this “Always verify their review before trusting them” you will never know if they’ll give you what they promised, Accurate and consistent list.

And also don’t trust what you always see on the internet. Sometimes, it can be deceiving, knowing that some information may be copied and edited and some might be outdated. That’s why some Online Researcher relied on calling that person to ensure they got the right information.


Phone verification can also be applied in Data Profiling, Data Verification and Data Cleansing.
