Direct mail campaigns have been around for years. It remains as one of the most traditional and effective forms of marketing. The staying power of the direct mail campaign strategy says a lot about how much of an impact it can make on a business in either a business-to-consumer or a business-to-business setting.
Engaged in a Personalized Approach
The best direct mail campaigns are personalized to each lead, and these messages tend to have more of an impact on the recipient of the message. If you're doing a marketing strategy sequence that consistently uses a personalized message for your leads then you'll have a strong influence on your prospective customer. Specifying the message for them will make them much more likely to not only read and listen to your message, but it will also make them far more likely to respond to your direct mail campaign.
The timing of your message is just as important as the content of your message. During high promotional times, such as the holiday season and summer months, you'll want to make sure that your direct mail campaign doesn't get lost in the sea of other promotional messages. You also want to make sure that your message doesn't strike the recipient as being an unsolicited spam message.
Reach out to leads that have expressed interest in your products and services, and then send your direct mailings to them at the best possible time for them to receive it. You should either send your message before the flood of high volume direct mailings from other businesses reach them, or use the next tactic that we're going to share in other to make your message stand out.
Always, Always, Always Be Creative
There's a reason why several businesses tend to send messages at certain times of the week, year, and even during certain hours of the day. The timing is precisely when leads are more inclined to receive your message. The only problem with this is that there are so many other businesses competing for the attention of leads that you'll often find your message ignored or easily forgotten.
The only solution is to make your direct mail campaign as creative as possible. Work within your budget and pull out all the stops to wow your leads, and make your message impossible to ignore. You can use three-dimensional packaging for your message, you can use bold colors and graphics on postcards, you can even send them gifts. No matter what, make them remember you.
