Direct Mail Made Easy

Direct Mail Made Easy is the LeadsPlease way of helping you to “get it mailed”.

Design your direct mail piece, build your targeted mailing list and print and mail.

  • Design an eye catching mail piece with a bold “call to action”.  For example if you are a frozen yogurt shop you could offer: “Buy One, Get one Free Every Friday Evening During June”. A nice glossy finish to the postcard will add a touch of class/quality!
  • Build an accurate targeted mailing list. Fresh, frequently updated data saves wastage on printing and mailing.
  • Target your best customer profiles because mailing to people who will not be interested in your products and services wastes money.
  • Focus on your most important services because laundry lists of services is confusing.
  • Make sure you add your own mailing details to your mailing list because you will need to monitor the timing of the mailing and the quality of the printing.
  • Hand stamp for a personal touch.                                                                             Celebration Boutonniere

Mailing List for Back to School Mailers

It’s almost back-to-school time! Use a targeted mailing list for your back-to-school mailer and make sure your advertisement reaches the right families who are most likely to need your products / services.

Target families by zip code, city or county or enter your store address and target families who live in a certain mile radius of your location. Families tend to shop close to home, so keep that in mind when you’re creating your mailing list.

Target families by the age of the children and/or other demographics. You can target all households with children ages 0-18, or you can be more specific and target specific age ranges (ex. 5-13). If necessary, you can tailor your mailing list further by adding demographics like Age of Parent, or Household Income level etc.

The Power of Direct Mail

Direct mail is an extremely powerful advertising tool, that helps businesses prospect for new customers, increase brand awareness and maintain strong customer relationships.

Despite a plethora of available advertising channels , and the myth that direct mail is on the decline, the numbers prove otherwise.

According to recent research by the Direct Marketing Association (DMA)  direct mail still outperforms email, despite an increase in promotional offers online:

  • 79% of Consumers act on direct mail immediately when they receive an offer, versus only 45% who act immediately to email offers.
  • Direct mail generates 10% more customers than email
  • Direct mail generates a 4.4% response rate, compared to email’s average response rate of 0.12%
