Direct marketing can be extremely beneficial for any business. However, it can also work out to be surprisingly costly and time consuming and when not conducted in a focussed manner hard to assess in terms of success rate.
However, there are many ways to increase the potential of any direct marketing campaign and at the same time to save money and improve your chances of effectively judging its level of success.
Firstly, it is worth looking into using a business mailing service. Not only can sending general office mail using such a company help you to save both time and money, but by using such a service for direct marketing, you can also cut out the middle man and have all your literature printed and sent by the same company. Not only will this reduce overheads and allow you to get on with other work instead of liaising with numerous companies, but it will also speed up the process dramatically and ensure that great opportunities are not missed due to the process being an overly long one.
A business mailing service will no doubt be able to get any campaign off the ground far quicker than any other solution would allow you to and ensure that you are saving money in the process. However, there are also ways to make the process of gathering data and judging success easier too. Any literature or direct office mail should include a unique promo code or a way of redeeming offers online via social marketing. By adding such a code, you will very quickly be able to gauge how many people have responded to the promotion and therefore work out whether the approach you are taking is having the desired effect.
Direct mailing can be a very successful way to increase custom for any business – however, the quicker you can send your items and judge the results, the more successful your campaigns will be.
