Targeted Marketing on a Conscious Budget

What good is a marketing budget if you don’t know exactly what you are looking for?

We worked with a client who had a marketing budget of $120,000.

 

Originally, they wanted to reach every member of the community within a 20-mile radius of their business’s location.

The company was centered in a densely populated metropolitan area, though, so it came as no surprise that there was a massive list of residential contacts in the area. In fact, there were so many names on the list, contacting each of them would have cost more than the client's budget would allow.

We realized there was a need to whittle the list down to an executable size, so we began to look at the demographics of the business’s typical customer and how much those individuals spend on each visit.

1st Class Mailing

Postcards, letters, flats and small packages can be sent using First-Class Mail.

First class mail is a faster way to deliver and typically arrives within 2-3 business days. Postage amount is based on size and weight, which means using First-Class Mail can be expensive.

 

Standard Mailing

Standard mail is a way to save money when sending more than 200 pieces or 50lbs of advertising mail. We can ship your mail close to the end user, thus ensuring all your pieces hit specific in-home dates across the country.

This requires several steps before printing and preparing mail for the post office. First we collaborate with you to determine exactly what you are looking for, we determine what message you want to send, when you want this message sent out, and which audience you want to target. After all of this is completed we create it, you proof it, and then it gets mailed out.

Standard mail delivery can range from 3-day service to 2 weeks if going cross-country. If your mailers are going to be mailed out of state, we use our technology to improve the delivery down to a 3-5 day window.
