Mail

Inspire & Expand Your Own Campaign!

Traditional Direct Mail or Bulk Rate, using a purchased mailing list or in-house database, is an effective way to send personalized and highly-targeted direct mail campaigns. It is also the most efficient way to deliver B2B (business to business) direct mail offers. While very effective for certain types of direct mail campaigns (ie: New Movers, High-End Services, etc), list-based direct mail campaigns are often difficult to coordinate, manage, and budget for due to the large number of variables inherent to the method. Additionally, list-based campaign cost more and are not guaranteed to produce better results than other methods.

 

Every Door Direct Mail® is a simplified and affordable direct mail service offered by the USPS® that empowers advertisers with a more cost-efficient way to saturate local neighborhoods and ZIP Codes.

EDDM® pieces deliver as "solo mail" into each targeted mailbox without being stuffed into a magazine or envelope containing offers from other advertisers. For widespread local mailing campaigns, no other form of advertising delivers more visibility at such a low cost.

Both formats are highly-effective when used correctly. In fact, most businesses use EDDM® for new customer acquisition purposes, while using traditional direct mailers for customer retention efforts.

If your products, services, or events have mass appeal -- EDDM® is almost always the best choice. However, to keep your current customers engaged and re-sell them, using personalized or targeted mailing list methods can be more effective.

Think about it, if you are a current customer with a business, it is "expected" that you receive personalized mail offers. On the flip side, when you receive personalized (especially hyper-personalized) mailers from businesses that you are not a current customer with -- it may be perceived as a negative (especially in the digital age of constant privacy concerns).

As with most forms of advertising, each method has powerful pros and cons and should be tested systematically to determine the best short/long-term ROI strategy.
