One of the major keys to long-term business success is and will always be your growth rate. Especially in the early days of your business, you need a steady stream of passionate new prospects and you need as many of them as you can get. Because of that, there are a number of reasons why direct marketing is the single best choice available to you for growing your business that you would do well to explore moving forward.

The Raw Power of Direct Mail

If you truly want to grow your business, you need to do more than just get someone’s attention. You need to create an emotional connection with as many people as possible as soon as you’re able to do so. Consider the difference between one of your acquaintances and a true friend. If the former calls you up and wants to go out to dinner, you may give it a thought but it likely won’t be a priority. If the latter calls you up with the same proposition, you’re going to make the time to get together.

This is because your relationship with one is based on emotion that is lacking from the other. Direct marketing helps you in largely the same way.

As opposed to email communication – which is as impersonal as it is oversaturated – your prospects can hold direct mail materials in their hands. They can pin them up on their refrigerator or save them for later. They’re tangible and they’re emotional at the same time – both of which mean big things for your growth efforts.

Likewise, with the right data selections and targeted mailing techniques, you can get more specific in terms of the message that you’re broadcasting than ever. You can make someone feel like they’re the only customer you’re concerned with, even though deep down you both know that isn’t true. As opposed to something that reads as generally as possible because you’re sending it out to 100,000 people at one time, a piece of direct mail collateral feels like it was created with a specific person in mind.

Rest assured that in a lot of cases, that alone is enough to make all the difference in the world.
