A direct mail strategy is never something that should be created blindly. For the best results, you need to draw insight from absolutely every source that you’re exposed to – meaning not only the existing relationships that you have with your customers, but the invaluable data that they’re also creating on a daily basis.

With that in mind, here are a number of key ways that you can expand your targeting capabilities, thus expanding your return on investment at the exact same time.

Deepen Your Targeting, Deepen Your ROI

Generally speaking, two of the best ways to deepen your targeting capabilities to expand your return on investment come down to two key ideas: descriptive analytics and predictive analytics.

To speak to the former, descriptive analytics involves creating a profile that describes A) the common attributes of your ideal customers, that are B) based on key demographic lookalikes that you already know about.

Predictive analytics, on the other hand, is a model that helps you determine how two (or more) groups of people are similar or dissimilar. If you know the difference between “Buyers” and “Non-Buyers,” for example, you obviously have everything you need to target the former and ignore the latter.

Of course, all of this makes an excellent case for finding the right partner to work with when developing your marketing strategy in the first place. At DynamiCard, for example, we have a wide range of different mailing services for you to choose from depending on your needs.
