Here are a few other tips for putting together a successful direct mail:

Add “Or Current Resident” under the name of the person to whom the mail piece is addressed. This will make sure that the USPS leaves the mail piece at the address and will dramatically reduce the number of mail pieces that fail to be delivered.

Don’t make a common mistake and leave out the address 2 line for apartments and suite numbers. This could contribute to a high number of non deliverables.

Make sure your mailing list has been checked for accuracy and is really up to date. Mailing List Hygiene is vital to improve deliverability and save wastage.

We are fast approaching the season of holiday mailings and it pays to make sure we plan our direct mail holiday marketing campaigns to comply with the direct mail dates for the holidays set by the USPS.

This process begins with a good quality, accurate mailing list.

If you are using your own list/data make sure you have removed the non deliverable addresses from your last mailing and add any new customers.

Add “Or Current Resident” under the name of the person to improve the deliverability rate and ensure the USPS leaves your mail piece at that address.

Make sure you address the mail piece according to the USPS guidelines. This also improves deliverability and saves wastage.

A common mistake is to omit the Suite # or Apartment # and this could result in the USPS being unable to deliver the mail.

A good “Call To Action” on the mail piece will improve the likelihood of the recipient responding to the message.  An example of this would be:

“Get one smoothie free when you present this card for one day only Saturday 8th November”

Good graphics and eye-popping designs also have an impact on response rates. Our customers have a few ideas.

Take the sting out of the holiday direct mail rush and get LeadsPlease to relieve you of your direct mail holiday headaches and  print and mail for you.

Job done!
