Small Business Tips: Direct Mail Marketing | Buzz Small Biz Magazine
Posted by on / 0 Comments
http://WaspBarcode.com – Is direct mail, or snail mail (as it’s aptly nicknamed), facing extinction? The rationale behind email campaigns is compelling — with the ability to reach your customers and prospects instantly, and eliminate the cost of printing and postage, it’s easy to see why many small businesses have chosen the digital route when it comes to marketing.
The downside of our digital age is that all of our inboxes are constantly flooded with emails, many of which are irrelevant and untimely — and ultimately wind up being marked as Spam or heading straight to the deleted folder. As a result, we’ve seen open rates erode, as Spam reports head in the opposite direction.

Plus, even in the case of a non-response, the postcard has to be viewed by someone in the organization before it hits a recycling bin — unlike emails that can be deleted without ever being seen.
Here are some tips to consider when embarking on a direct mail campaign:
