Direct mail marketing is more powerful than ever – after all, more than 150 million direct mail promotions were sent out in 2015 alone. Yet at the same time, it’s not a silver bullet. Running the wrong direct mail campaign for the wrong audience at the wrong time can be devastating, both in terms of the negative taste you leave in the mouth of your collective audience and in terms of the money wasted on results you’ll never achieve.

Ultimately, all of this is exactly why working with a direct mail marketing partner is so critical to your success.

The Value of a Direct Mail Partner

Simply put, your expertise probably isn’t in the world of marketing – it’s deeply rooted in the actual business you’re already running. Nobody knows your audience better than you do, yes – but at the same time, as the old saying goes, “you can only make one first impression.”

A direct mail marketing partner can help work with you to determine the type and scope of the campaign you need to run and customize it from the ground up to meet the needs of your own unique audience. They can use their insight, their expertise and market data to help determine not just the fact that your audience will respond to direct mail postcards, but which plastic postcard mailer will have the maximum impact.

They can help you craft more specific content for your direct marketing lists, allowing you to leverage concepts like personalization to your advantage. They can help you better understand your own sales funnel, making sure that you always have perfect content to help usher people from one end to the other with maximum efficiency. They also bring with them the most important benefit of all: freeing up your valuable time so that you can focus less on marketing and more on actually running the business you set out to build in the first place.

Because again, direct mail marketing companies are more than just “hired hands.” They’re true partners in every sense of the word and if you’re not already working with one, it is absolutely in your own best interests to start doing so as soon as you possibly can.
