Are you looking to engage in direct mail marketing? Here are important tips you should keep in mind.
You need a quality list
To succeed in direct mail marketing, it is important to know who your audience is and also be able to target them closely with your direct mail marketing campaigns. This is the only way to ensure you get back good returns on your investment of time and capital. However, the dilemma facing many business owners is how to get a list of people to target. Generating lists internally can be difficult and time consuming; or time wasting if you go about it the wrong way. Purchasing dubious lists online is also a great way to get scammed and just annoy people with untargeted emails. It may be worth investing in data.com, or building a list off the back of your social media networks. Develop a list strategy on your website too, and work it for short periods regularly. This could mean offering a free industry guide download, and capturing emails and company details, for example.
