Why Choose Between Print and Digital When You Can Link Both Together? image

Oftentimes, even seasoned marketing veterans can sometimes make the mistake of thinking that they have to pick between print and digital when it comes to their collateral.

This type of cross-media marketing happens all the time - you just need to keep a few key things in mind. Digital Advertising and Direct Mail Marketing: A Match Made in Heaven Think for a moment about all of that incredible customer information you've already collected through digital CRM tools.

How to Market Pest Control Services for Summer Customers image

Any marketing veteran can tell you that seasonal marketing is every bit as much an art as it is a science. If you're a pest control business, summer is probably your busy season. However, just because summer has yet to arrive doesn't mean that you shouldn't already be ramping up your marketing campaign. If you wait until warm weather finally hits, it'll be far too late - and nearly every other company around you will have beaten you to the jump. Instead, you need to start thinking TODAY about how you're going to best position yourself to reach all those relevant customers when the temperatures finally start to rise outside. That, of course, requires you to keep a few key ...

Get Your Customers to Market FOR You: The Power of Advocacy image

When it comes to your direct mail marketing strategy, one of the core elements that you always need to be positioned to use to your advantage is loyalty. People have grown weary of traditional advertising to a certain extent, as evidenced by the millions of people who use ad blocking software online. But the one thing that people will always look for is a good recommendation from a friend or loved one - and make no mistake, that is absolutely what you want to get in on. Not only is this why a customer retention strategy should always be a priority (remember that it's less expensive to retain an existing customer than it is to get a new one), but it's ...

When it comes to the ongoing success of your marketing campaign and the effectiveness of collateral like plastic postcards, any step that you can take to make sure your materials stand out in a crowd is a step worth taking. But one of the most important parts of graphic design is also, sadly, the one that far too many people fail to pay enough attention to: color psychology. That's right - being strategic about the colors you're using can and will make a huge impact on your response rate moving forward. To get to that point, however, you just need to keep a few key things in mind. The Science of Color Psychology: Breaking Things Down A wide range of different studies ...

Targeted Marketing vs. Mass Marketing image

We've said it before and we'll say it again: so much of your success in terms of direct mail marketing comes down to your ability to get the right message in front of the right person at precisely the right moment. One of the major traps that most campaigns fall into, however, is that they go for a mass marketing approach. By trying to appeal to as many people as possible, they end up being compelling to none of them. To that end, targeted mailing and techniques like list segmentation bring with them a wide range of different benefits that are far too important to ignore. Targeted Marketing is All About Precision While it's certainly true that mass marketing has a very large reach, ...

The Art of Omnichannel Branding image

At its core, the idea behind omnichannel branding is a simple one. Every interaction that someone has with your brand - regardless of where that interaction takes place - should invoke the same feelings and emotional response. In other words, if someone visits your website and then receives a direct mail postcard, both of those experiences should feel like they're both coming from the exact same place: the organization you've worked so hard to build. Omnichannel Branding is the Foundation of Your Marketing Strategy One of the major reasons why this is all so important is because it creates a consistent level of service across all possible touch points. People know that if they pick up the phone and give you ...

Growth Hacking: What It is and How to Do It Yourself image

At its core, the concept behind growth hacking is a simple one. It’s the process of rapid experimentation across your business – via your marketing funnel, product development, sales and more – with the ultimate goal of capitalizing on any and all opportunities for growth that present themselves. Think about it like this: all businesses grow, but growing too slowly is just as potentially dangerous in the long-run as growing too fast… or not growing at all. Growth hacking becomes an opportunity to take more control over your scalability and agility, letting you grow in all the right ways that you need without all of the potential downsides that normally come with them. However, it’s also something that requires you to ...
