Expert: Value is the key to direct mail marketing
Though digital marketing is quickly becoming the preferred way of advertising for many small businesses, direct mail is still one of the most effective ways of reaching new customers.
A recent article from DMNews suggests that business owners can enhance the effectiveness of their direct mail campaigns by adding more value to them. According to the article, consumers are still very conscientious of spending a lot of money. Bigger coupons or promotions can go a long way when it comes to encouraging a consumer to act, says the site.
For example, if a business sells multiple products, it could group popular items together. By grouping items that consumers would normally buy together, the retailer can offer the consumer additional savings and better value.
While consumers are looking for value, that doesn’t necessarily mean they are looking for inexpensive, said DMNews. The key is to deliver something that they need.
Direct mail marketing can best be used when incorporated into other forms of marketing. For example, direct mail marketing could have links to a company’s social media or email marketing sites.This entry was posted in Branding, Measurement and tagged direct mail marketing. Bookmark the permalink.
