Benefits of Postcard Mailing Strategy

By Janice Jenkins Subscribe to RSS | January 26th 2012 | Views:

The marketing strategy you employ for your business will either establish the success that you will eventually enjoy or set you up for a fall. There are several techniques that can help you promote your business and practically each one of them involves significant amounts spending. However, there’s always an alternative to costly advertising. One such cheaper alternative solution is postcard mailing.

Printing postcards for business and marketing purposes has been a practice by many small to medium businesses. In addition to being inexpensive, postcards will allow you to reach your target audience and communicate your marketing message more efficiently. Since postcards are sent without envelopes, which lets you lower the mailing expenses, your message has a greater chance of being read and understood by your target audience.

Postcard mailing is also ideal for strengthening your brand identity – provided your postcards are of high quality and feature a striking image and headline. In spite of its simplistic form, you can make your postcards more impressive by making them well-designed and useful for different purposes. For example, you may send the cards out to customers simply to follow up on a previous purchase. Or you may consider using these items as invitations whenever your company sponsors a special event, like a product launch or concert. But if you simply want to express your appreciation to your loyal customers, then feel free to do so with your postcards. When done right, postcard mailing can really help you win new customers and strengthen your relationship with the old ones.

In printing postcards, make sure to create a compelling design that instantly creates an impact. Remember that your cards are likely to get mixed up with stacks of sales letters, bills and other correspondences in your recipient’s mailbox. By making your postcards appealing and attractive, you an increased chance of capturing the recipient’s attention as fast as possible.

Be sure to write a strong headline for your postcard. You can consider it as one of the most important elements of your postcard, probably second to the photo or image. So the best thing to do is create a solid headline and use a visually appealing image.

Many businesses opt to use both sides when printing postcard for greater impact. It is a good idea if you decide to do that as well. The front side can contain elements such as the image as well the headline. For the back area, you can include your contact details along with a bit longer message and some general information about your company. And don’t forget to put in a powerful call to action.

No matter how great the design or how witty your headline is, keep in mind that your postcard is still a promotional tool that must sustain your company’s marketing and branding activities. Let that principle guide you in printing postcards. And as long as you plan ahead and put in enough thought and effort to your campaign, postcard mailing can help bring in considerable profit and success to your business.
