What is direct mail?
Maybe you’re struggling for marketing ideas, or maybe you need to come up with a diverse marketing strategy and need some additional ideas. Maybe you should consider throwing Direct Mail Marketing into the mix. But what exactly is direct mail?
In relation to marketing and advertising, the term Direct Mail refers to any printed media, such as letters, ads, dl cards or postcards that are delivered via the postal service, this may be as simple as sending a few promotional coupons to your most valued customers using Australia Post, or hiring a contracted courier to deliver thousands upon thousands of Direct Marketing advertisements direct to thousands of homes around Australia.
One of the biggest advantages of using Direct Mail in your next marketing campaign is that you have complete control over who you want your audience to be. You can be extremely specific and targeting in your approach. Because of this, you save many of your marketing dollars when aiming to advertise to a mass audience.
How specific you get in your Direct Mail Marketing campaign can sometimes define how well you succeed in it. Obviously this applies to all mediums when it comes to marketing, but with a Direct Mail campaign, you have such a large opportunity for control that it would be a waste to not take advantage of it. It’s imperative that you take the time to define your audience, and define it well. Tailoring your message to fit your target will be one of the biggest keys to your success. You need to ask the big questions such as, where do these people work? What is their household income? How old are the people in the house? Do your homework!!!!
Once you figure out what type of people you want to target with your Direct Mail Marketing campaign, you’re going to want to get some mailing lists. These can either be self compiled from your own database of existing customers, or you may purchase a mailing list off a market researcher. You may even go as far as hiring your own market researchers depending on whether you can use the data in other parts of your marketing campaign, and your marketing budget can afford it.
