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.

Who’s Responding to Direct Mail? image

Responsive Prospects

When it comes to demographic targeting, far too many people only see one part of a much larger story. Yes, targeted mailing means that you know precisely who you're sending a piece of direct mail collateral to - often with a high degree of accuracy.

The Major Differences Between EDDM® and Saturation Mailing image

Saturation Mailing

EDDM® stands for "Every Door Direct Mail." It's a solution offered by the United States Postal Service in an effort to allow small businesses in particular a more effective way to promote their products and services to those in their local communities.

You may think these two things are one in the same, but in reality they each bring with them their own unique advantages and disadvantages that cannot be ignored. EDDM® vs. Saturation Mailing: What You Need to Know For most businesses, the most important difference between ...

Making an Impact With Direct Mail for Your Non-Profit image

Non-Profit Marketing

Taking Advantage of the New Era of Non-Profit Marketing By far, one of the most critical steps you need to take as a non-profit to improve your fundraising capabilities involves diversifying as much as possible.

Make a Lasting Impact With Your Fitness Club Marketing for the New Year & Beyond image

Fitness Clubs Marketing

If you had to make a list of some of the most popular New Year's resolutions that people make every year, "getting into shape" and "becoming more healthy" are usually right at the top. But at the same time, people often break those resolutions for a wide range of different reasons. That usually means fitness clubs see a big influx of new members at the start of the year that quickly wanes over the next few weeks and months... but it certainly doesn't have to be that way. With the right marketing strategy for fitness clubs, you can have people coming into your business that stay long after January has ended. All you have to do is keep a few ...

How Food and Meal Delivery Startups Can Gain and Retain Customers image

How Food Delivery Companies Can Use Direct Mail to Drive Traffic image

In an era where nearly the entirety of the food delivery relationship between a restaurant and a customer happens online (meaning that people can order dinner right from their phone via an app like Door Dash or Uber Eats), it's easy to assume that food delivery companies should handle their marketing needs in the exact same way.

Want to Get Better at Targeted Mailing? Use the 40/40/20 Marketing Rule image

The 40/40/20 marketing rule may have a somewhat enigmatic name - but in reality, the approach it's describing couldn't be more straightforward. In essence, it's a theory that says that the ultimate success (not to mention return on investment) of your campaign is essentially relying on three core factors: 40% of your success is directly related to how effective your mailing list is. Another 40% ties back into how compelling your offer is. The remaining 20% comes from literally everything else. Why the 40/40/20 Marketing Rule Matters For the sake of discussion, let's start with the reverse order. The 20% that falls under the "everything else" category directly refers to not only graphic design, but also the specific copy of the ...

How to Get the Best Possible ROI with Direct Mail image

There's an old saying that reminds us "you have to spend money to make money" - but in the case of direct mail marketing, that's only one part of a much more important story.

The Consequences of Bad Data image

One of the best things about being a marketer in the modern age is that data is literally everywhere. All day, people are uploading massive volumes of information about themselves - all of which you can use to your advantage. If you know what someone likes, what they don't like, where they live and what type of lifestyle they have, you have most of the pieces you need to create marketing collateral that can't help but resonate and motivate. But at the same time, one has to wonder - what happens when the quality of the data becomes less important than the volume? It's a very real risk - and it's one that you'll want to try and avoid for ...
