Understanding the Power of Plastic Postcards image

Success in terms of marketing is all about getting the right message in front of the right person at exactly the right time - this has always been true and it likely always will be. But how do you make sure that someone actually NOTICES your message when they're receiving more targeted advertisements than ever on a daily basis? The answer is simple: you use a format that they can't help but pay attention to. For many brands, plastic postcards ARE that format and they unlock a myriad of different advantages you won't be able to find anywhere else. Stand Out from the Crowd One of the major benefits that direct mail collateral like plastic postcards bring to the table is that, ...

The Art of Brand Transparency image

At its core, brand transparency means exactly what it sounds like: you’re creating an image that says to everyone listening that YOURS is the brand to be trusted. This means that you say what you mean and you mean what you say, but it also conveys the fact that you’re honest, open, fair and don’t care who knows it. To put it another way, it means that your brand operates in a way that doesn’t just stand up to public scrutiny, but invites it, because you know you have absolutely nothing to hide. There’s a good chance that you’re already operating your business with this mentality, and if you are – terrific. But if you want to make sure as many ...

Reasons Your Lawn Care & Landscaping Mailers and Print Ads “Don’t Work” image

Your Campaign is More About Your Company Than Your Prospect For just a minute, take a deep breath and close your eyes and imagine that you are not a lawn and landscape nerd. I know. It’s hard. Get into the mind of your prospect. Stop copycatting your green industry peers. Look at your direct mail or advertising campaigns and evaluate these areas: Ratio of Empathy & Authority:  Look at each word you choose. Imagine your campaign as a recipe. Authority is the salt. Just a pinch will do. Don’t make your prospects gag on award seals, credentials, etc. Photography Messages:  Hire a professional and stop relying so much on stock photos (like your competitors). Put clients in your images, using their spaces and living their ...

Targeted Direct Mail Is Not Junk Mail image

According to one recent study, the average household in the United States gets about six pieces of junk mail every single day. In fact, every five days we collectively produce enough junk mail to literally reach the moon. Junk mail as a concept doesn't just damage the environment (roughly one billion pounds wind up in landfills each year, after all) - it also damages the legitimate direct mail marketing efforts that companies like you are engaged in every single day. Shattering The Myth of "Junk" Mail One of the most critical things for you to understand about junk mail is that it is NOT a term used to describe any and all marketing collateral that someone happens to get when they ...

Customer Retention Strategy Matters image

If you need proof that a customer retention strategy should be a critical part of any business, consider the following statistic: it costs as much as five times as much money to attract a new customer than it does to keep an existing one. When it comes to a task as important as this one, there's a reason why many marketers said that direct mail is still one of the most commonly used customer acquisition channels - it's a precise, emotional and effective way to continue to manage those essential relationships at exactly the right moment. Customer Retention Is About Relationship Management One of the most important things to understand about your customer retention strategy is that you need to make sure that you're building ...

Using Direct Mail to Drive Digital Engagement image

In a lot of ways, one of the biggest mistakes that far too many marketers still seem to make involves thinking about print and digital collateral as two totally separate concepts. They may have started out that way, but there is absolutely no reason why they need to exist separately any longer - especially when you consider that they're essentially just two sides of the same basic coin. In fact, many businesses are enjoying tremendous success by using one technique to feed into the other, leveraging the power that only direct mail can provide to actually drive newer and more organic levels of digital engagement. You can do this with your own campaigns, too - you just need to keep ...

Direct Mail is Tangible image

While it's certainly true that digital marketing is all the rage these days, a number of recent studies have shown that direct mail marketing and other types of print collateral are more popular (and more effective) than ever. A lot of this comes down to the fact that direct mail, by design, is something that even the best piece of digital collateral can never and will never be: Tangible. It exists in real life. You can hold it in your hand. Share it with your loved ones. Make no mistake, this is one of the most valuable assets you have access to for a variety of different reasons. A Bird in the Hand... Think, for just a moment, about how many emails you get on ...

Direct Mail Marketing is Far From Dead image

To paraphrase one of the great American authors of all time, "the reports of the death of direct mail have been greatly exaggerated." Yes, it's true that today's marketing world is highly focused on digital methods and avenues like social media or email. However, what you might not realize is that even though everyone carries a smartphone around in their pocket with them all day long, direct mail is STILL continuing to outperform digital in almost every way on a consistent basis. It's true. According to one recent study, direct mail marketing yields an average response rate of 5.1%. Email comes in at just .6% and social media comes in at a slim .4%. Not only that, but for every $167 that ...

Pest Control Marketing with Direct Mail image

One of the major challenges in terms of pest control marketing has to do with the fact that your business is very seasonal - almost more so than any other industry. It's not that your organization shuts down for long periods of time, or even that your customers tend to taper off during a particular part of the year. There will always be pests and there will always be people who hate them - it's just that the challenges your customers face during the winter are very, very different from the ones they face during the summer. With DynamiCard and our seasonal marketing offerings for pest control businesses, however, this is no longer a liability - it's an opportunity. You can now ...
