The Key to More Influential Direct Mail Than Ever Before image

Direct Mail

While it's absolutely true that one of the main goals of your marketing strategy should be to create as much awareness as possible for your business, you also need to be prepared to go a bit deeper than that. Awareness is great, but it's passive by its very nature. You can be aware that an interesting business is out there and still not really do anything about it. What you REALLY want is for people to be active - you need them to want to engage with your business in a way that creates an exceptional experience they won't soon forget. Luckily, direct mail is the perfect opportunity to accomplish this goal - provided that you keep a few key ...

Turning Brand Transparency into Brand Loyalty image

Brand Transparency

One of the major reasons that people love direct mail in the first place is because it's authentic. As opposed to an email which can be easily ignored (and deleted just as quickly), direct mail has an air of legitimacy to it. It's tangible - you can hold it in your hand or pin it up to your refrigerator, and that absolutely goes a long way towards the impression you're trying to make. But if you really want to use direct mail marketing materials to build customer loyalty, you need to rely on one element above all others: brand transparency. The Art of Brand Transparency At its core, brand transparency means exactly what it sounds like: you're creating an image that says ...

Using Integrated Marketing to Build Value and Loyalty image

If you had to sum up the overall goal of your marketing campaign in a single word, that word would undoubtedly be "branding." Yes, you want to get the word out about your products and services.

To that end, integrated marketing is a perfect chance to build both brand value and customer loyalty in a number of different ways, all of which are worth exploring. What is Integrated Marketing? Breaking Things Down At its core, the idea behind integrated marketing (also commonly called cross-platform marketing) is clear: you're attempting to meld all aspects of your marketing together into a single cohesive message ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...

You Don’t Create Brand Loyalty. You Inspire It. image

Regardless of the type of business you're running or even the industry you're operating in, brand loyalty is always of critical importance. People can buy products and services like yours from a lot of different places. The key isn't to try to convince them they can't - it's to make them realize that they don't actually want to in the first place. Not only will inspiring brand loyalty keep people coming back for more, but emotionally-connected buyers also tend to spend more money as well. Building Brand Loyalty, One Brick at a Time If you truly want to create a deeper, more organic sense of brand loyalty, your marketing strategy needs to be built around the idea that you're in a ...
