Direct mailing has been in use for years, and despite its age, it is still among the most effective and cost-effective methods of advertising. The key to a successful campaign is to design a competitive direct mailing campaign.
A direct mail marketer should plan when to send mail and follow up on a potential client. If the first campaign didn’t work, a different one after some time might be successful. Customers need to see many messages before taking any action. So, if you send one mailer and quit, you may not succeed.
Personalize Your Campaign
There’s still competition in direct mailing, so your message should stand out among the rest. Instead of advertising your business, list the benefits it will provide. Personalize your plastic card mailer, such that it resonates with potential clients. This way, clients will feel your business is capable and consumer-friendly.
Split Your Messages
Sending potential clients two or more mails with different messages can improve campaign results. Also, use different designs and evaluate which one gets better response rates, and don’t underestimate the power of writing catchy headlines to draw the client’s attention.
Target the Right Customers
You can group your target audience according to gender, age, or occupation. Also, study your client’s buying behavior, lifestyle, and interest. In addition, learn how your products or services will help your customers and how they will use them.
Include a Call to Action
Every receiver of your direct mailing will react differently. The goal of the mailing campaign is to entice new customers and re-invite previous clients to purchase. So, include a compelling and unique call to action, which might be a discount, promo, or contest. However, only provide what your clients need.
Direct mailing campaigns are an effective way to reach potential clients. A company can easily track the campaign’s success by comparing sales and how customers have used coupons. The client feedback can also help organizations with future mailing campaigns.
