More often than not, small to medium sized enterprises aren’t exactly blessed with a massive marketing budget – so it pays to get things right. There’s really no point in committing to spending the lion’s share of your annual budget on a direct mail marketing campaign (think graphic design, printing, mailing and administration costs) if it’s just going to end up going straight in the bin. You’ll be surprised at how many business owners throw money down the drain by greenlighting lacklustre campaigns which simply don’t appeal to their target demographics, when some simple research could have enabled them to create a campaign which is cohesive with their other marketing activities, increasing their brand awareness and in-turn creates a bigger impact that gets higher conversion results.
The “what’s in it for me?” factor
The average person will spend mere seconds glancing at your direct mail media before deciding to either chuck it in the bin or read further on. In order to get them to read your folded leaflet or printed flyer, you need to give them an incentive. Highlight your most attractive offer in as clear and concise a way as you can; think of your mailout as a shop window – ultimately you want to display your most enticing offer where it can be seen.
Keep it short and concise
It’s easy to get carried away stuffing your folded leaflet, brochure, or flyer with copy that nobody will ever read. Be as succinct and to the point as you can. Folded leaflet printing is ideal for your direct mail campaign because products such as a 6 page A4 or a 6 page DL offers ample amount of space for you to highlight your products and services within clear creative graphic design whilst being a cheap way of printing.
